Entertainment Weekly dropped a bunch of Star Wars Episode 7 pics on us. Tom Hiddleston popped up with his pretty face as Hank Williams, and The Hateful Eight trailer has FINALLY arrived! Today was a very good day.
FINALLY! We have the long awaited trailer to Quentin Tarantino’s munch anticipated Hateful Eight. The trailer looks pretty interesting and definitely has that “Neo-Western” feel that the director established with Django Unchained. But don’t just take my word for it, have a gander at the trailer below.
In THE HATEFUL EIGHT, set six or eight or twelve years after the Civil War, a stagecoach hurtles through the wintry Wyoming landscape. The passengers, bounty hunter John Ruth (Russell) and his fugitive Daisy Domergue (Leigh), race towards the town of Red Rock where Ruth, known in these parts as “The Hangman,” will bring Domergue to justice. Along the road, they encounter two strangers: Major Marquis Warren (Jackson), a black former union soldier turned infamous bounty hunter, and Chris Mannix (Goggins), a southern renegade who claims to be the town’s new Sheriff. Losing their lead on the blizzard, Ruth, Domergue, Warren and Mannix seek refuge at Minnie’s Haberdashery, a stagecoach stopover on a mountain pass. When they arrive at Minnie’s, they are greeted not by the proprietor but by four unfamiliar faces. Bob (Bichir), who’s taking care of Minnie’s while she’s visiting her mother, is holed up with Oswaldo Mobray (Roth), the hangman of Red Rock, cow-puncher Joe Gage (Madsen), and Confederate General Sanford Smithers (Dern). As the storm overtakes the mountainside stopover, our eight travelers come to learn they may not make it to Red Rock after all…
The Hateful Eight is due in select theaters Christmas Day 2015 and in wide release on January 8, 2016.
After a script leak in early 2014, Tarantino’s next project, Hateful Eight, was scrapped. Fast forward a year, and after careful consideration, he started filming in January with Samuel L. Jackson, as well as a who’s who of Tarantino regulars. This latest edition of Entertainment Weekly to hit newsstands will have the first look at what the prolific director is calling a “Western Iceman Cometh.”
The film is about a group of people who get stranded at a saloon in the middle of nowhere after a blizzard forces a stagecoach to divert its course. Tension mounts among those stranded, and I am sure, with true Tarantino style, a bloody battle will ensue.
Hateful Eight is currently filming, and slated for a fall release.
