Cinema Speculation is the latest book from Quentin Tarantino while we wait for his final film – more details on the October 2022 release here.

Quentin Tarantino’s plan to make ten movies and then move away from film directing is both well known and thus incomplete. By his count, he’s up to nine films, and he’s been toying with just what the tenth one might be. It won’t, for instance, be the Star Trek project he at one stage toyed with making.

More recently, his focus has been on books, in line with his longer term aim to spend time writing film criticism. The novelisation of his last movie, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, proved hugely successful. And now he reveals that he’s penned a book called Cinema Speculation, that has been picked up by the publisher Harper Collins.

It’s due for publication – in the UK as well – on October 25th of this year. It’s available for preorder here as well.

We’ll leave you for the minute with its synopsis…

In addition to being among the most celebrated of contemporary filmmakers, Quentin Tarantino is possibly the most joyously infectious movie lover alive. For years he has touted in interviews his eventual turn to writing books about films. Now, with CINEMA SPECULATION, the time has come, and the results are everything his passionate fans – and all movie lovers – could have hoped for. Organized around key American films from the 1970s, all of which he first saw as a young moviegoer at the time, this book is as intellectually rigorous and insightful as it is rollicking and entertaining. At once film criticism, film theory, a feat of reporting, and wonderful personal history, it is all written in the singular voice recognizable immediately as QT’s and with the rare perspective about cinema possible only from one of the greatest practitioners of the artform ever.
