That was the running time a few weeks ago after Tarantino screened a rough cut. He has since tightened it up to 2 hours and 45 minutes. He said in the roundtable that they were pretty easy cuts to make (i.e., some stuff that wasn't really essential to the story). It's in the can and will screen this weekend I believe.
Anyway, I will be sure to refrain from buying soda at the movies this Christmas. Zero Dark Thirty, The Hobbit, Django and Les Mis are all over 2 hours and 40 minutes long.
