First Look at Three of Tarantino's 'Hateful Eight' on EW's New Cover
The Meanest, Grittiest, and Deadliest Movie of the Year? Already? Well, we'll have to see if that holds true. Entertainment Weekly has unveiled their latest cover and it's a first look at some of the characters (only three of the eight!) from Quentin Tarantino's new western The Hateful Eight. He was filming all of late last year, and is preparing the film for release late this year, but we have yet to see an actual teaser. "For me it has more of a Western Iceman Cometh kind of vibe about it," Tarantino says of Hateful Eight. "A bunch of guys in a room who can't trust each other… That wasn't a marching order when I sat down to write the script, but pretty quickly I realized this is kind of a nice coming-full-circle." I'm ready, let's see the footage.
Here's the new cover shot showing Samuel L. Jackson, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Kurt Russell via EW.com:
From EW.com: "The film scales down from Tarantino’s last two films, [Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained], going for something more intimate if no less violent, like a stick of dynamite in a shoebox."
The Hateful Eight is written and directed by Quentin Tarantino (Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, Jackie Brown, Kill Bill, Inglourious Basterds, Django Unchained). Six or eight or twelve years after the Civil War, a stagecoach hurtles through the wintry Wyoming landscape carrying bounty hunter John Ruth (Kurt Russell) and his fugitive Daisy Domergue (Jennifer Jason Leigh) towards the town of Red Rock where Ruth, known in these parts as “The Hangman,” will bring Domergue to justice. But their journey is about to get disrupted by a blizzard, leaving them stranded at Minnie's Haberdashery with six other travelers (Samuel L. Jackson, Walton Goggins, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Bruce Dern and Demian Bichir), and they might not all make it out alive. The Weinstein Company releases the film sometime in 2015 - still waiting for a date.
