The Hateful Eight

"One of them fellas is not what he says he is." The Weinstein Company has debuted the first full-length teaser trailer for Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight, his latest western following Django Unchained. This time, Tarantino wrangles up eight different bounty-hunter badasses under one roof in the middle of a blizzard. The film features quite an impressive cast: Kurt Russell, Samuel L. Jackson, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Michael Madsen, Zoe Bell, Tim Roth, Bruce Dern, Demian Bichir, Walton Goggins and Channing Tatum, in some kind of role. This looks even better than I was hoping, with a chill in the air, Tarantino's patented dialogue, and a cast that's going to blow us all out of the water. Fire this up and enjoy!

Here's the first official teaser trailer for Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight, direct from YouTube:

The Hateful Eight Poster

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 will open The Hateful Eight in a limited 70mm roadshow release starting on December 25th, 2015, Christmas Day, later this year. We'll see ya'll in theaters then.

    • Cyberdine
      Funny. That was the first thing i said to myself when i saw this. Kurt's the man.
    • dan
      I'm not knocking your taste; but, would you pass if it didn't have KR? I'm a huge Russell fan too; but, damn - Jackson, leigh, roth, madsen, dern, and tatum together is an outstanding cast on their own.
      • Brian Sleider
        No, I would still watch it, but Russel just makes it an instant sell.
    A little different than what I was expecting, but that is a good thing! This looks absolutely terrific. The costuming, the setting, the characters, all look perfect. Kurt Russell looks to be in top form. Samuel L. Jackson should be fun as always.
  • Henry Willis
    Looks boring. 1 cabin 99%of the movie is in. uhgggg oh well. PASS.
    • orbitbrasil
      Would you say the same about 8 men in a warehouse for 99% of a film?? hmmm...
      • tommyturner
    • dan
      I guess Sidney lumets "12 angry men" is a dud too?
  • dan
    there are no words I can type to express how excited I am for this! the trailer is what I was hoping for and more!!! may be called a "teaser" but I won't be watching any more footage - I've seen enough to put me in a seat on christmas.
  • Jon Odishaw
    Django meets reservoir dogs. Doesn't look spectacular but it's Tarantino so it will be seen and it will likely be great.
    • dan
      how do you get django and RD from this?
      • TheOct8pus
        Django because it's a western. Reservoir Dogs because it's an ensemble cast (and it appears that they're a lot of sitting in a room together) with a large chance of banter.
        • Jon Odishaw
          I just came to reply and found you stole the words hahaha well done.
        • dan
          oh - I thought you were going story and I couldn't figure your connection.
  • Terry Craig
    Wow, the cinematography really knocked me out... super wide lenses, perfect framing, all super crisp. Looks like it might even surpass other QT films in that regard. The rest looks like a lot of fun. I esp. liked Leigh's little hanging gesture.
    • III
      I totally agree! A whole new QT I got from the trailer; it definitely piqued my interest 10x.
  • Very much down for this. Imagine there will be some very long talking scenes going down between the bloodshed
  • Comments_Usually_Suck
    I'll pass. I rather rewatch Unforgiven.
    • shiboleth
      That's a good idea. On one side. On the other, I am not biggest fan of Tarantino either and I could really, really agree with you. But I also think it's prematurely to say what you're thinking. This is obviously another ludicrous nonsense (at least, for me) but maybe, just maybe worth watching and comparison. No matter if your comment will end up true. Because Tarantino has some knowledge about movie making and always can show us some new tricks ...
      • Comments_Usually_Suck
        I agree with you in terms of staying open minded. But I dont get why Tarantino decided to make back 2 back westerns? Especially after the stinker Django.
        • shiboleth
          Again, I have to agree with you. He doesn't have a lot to say, and the more I'm thinking I have to say this is very narrow perspective. It's probably just his ego, what else? Not much creativity in it. But then again, (at some point) I will check it out just to see what will become of it and I will not be expecting much. And will be still aware that he makes better films than many nowadays (which is, in fact, very bad news) ...
        • Jon Odishaw
          I found Django to be a better than average film but not up to tarantino standards. I am disappointed that he is making two westerns back to back as well..especially since he is threatening to retire soon.
  • nicolas dalli
    everything looks really fake to me in this trailer... dont know why....
    • B H
    • shiboleth
      As we all know, all movies are fake. Tarantino just makes that little bit too much and has a lot of followers who enjoy it ...
      • Jon Odishaw
        Its true, he almost tampers with the fourth wall the way the characters act. But lots of us love it.
    • It must be the 70mm conversion to fit the video feed. I know what you mean though...something seemed off
  • Beru
    In Tarantino I trust!
    • shiboleth
      Well, somebody has to ...
  • shiboleth
    I usually wait for some time before I watch new Tarantino film. Nothing big happens in them. But, from time to time they fulfill some entertainment idea I need sometimes. It looks to me, this one won't do any better ...
    • I cannot say that I agree with you, I look forward anxiously to a new QT movie everytime. However your comment was well-worded and polite, and therefore I tip my hat to you sir.
      • shiboleth
        Thank you, sir ...And I'm honored to return the tipping ...

          Tarantino is a great story teller, today's standard seems to favor something that doesn't exist. He has found more ways to tell a story than countless directors before and after him. Everyone is titled to there own personal taste, but to say nothing big happens is an understatement, his stories breath more life, energy and flawless continuity 100's of directors and writers lack.
          • shiboleth
            I guess the matter is delicate so I should somehow handle it with care. If I have to agree that Tarantino is a great storyteller, I would do that. But I would also add, it's great storytelling about nothing new. I'll repeat, he has some tricks worth appreciating, but no much substance. To put it more bluntly: all his movies are worthy because of the style, that's all to say about it - in fact, his movies are almost all style, with little substance of new in it. If I really value any of his films that has to be Jackie Brown, one of his most complete movie where everything works more than good exercise in style. However,that does not also mean that he's one of the weakest directors out there. I agree, many others can't even come close to what he does. But I would add to that that he's also a great mannerist of our time and not complete or great author at all ... Simply, he's good at something and many others are not even that ...
          • shane willett
            I understand where your coming from, understand main stream Hollywood needs a reboot its self, no pun intended. However,Tarantino is what he is, Tarantino has a stamp that he puts on everything he does. Compared to what has released this year and what's coming out this will be a great action western due fit for the other western film staring Hardy and Dicaprio. He's big into 1960's spaghetti western style and he brings it back today with a more vamped up look.Recreating great imagery but with a smoother and more Disney'esque feel, but in a bloody way. I get you don't want to see it but it will be a great addition to the mainstream cinemas across the U.S. Of .A.. On a side note;How do you feel about bad robotDisney StarWars?
          • shiboleth
            As for the 'Hateful Eight', oh, I wanna see it, but I don't feel I have to do it the same second it gets released. For clearly stated reasons. As for the disneyfication of Star Wars, I see it as logical continuation of what George Lucas did. Honestly, how could it be different since Lucas' movies were some kind of Disney feature film? In fact. George Lucas' every Star Wars film is Disney's feature film before today's Disney, before, say, Pirates of Carribean ... Captain Jack Sparrow is almost exactly what Han Solo character is, and it fits perfectly, or can be used perfectly, in Disney world and also in many ways possible and imagined. So, no surprises since I see the same blueprint in both approaches ...
          • shane willett
            Not to be rude, Ill wait until it hits Bluray with special features. I like to say I'll see it when it releases, but I won't, regardless it will be great. Star Wars, however will be a day one for me.

    Kurt Russel.. nuff said
  • Dizz
    Looks Awesome!!!
  • TheOct8pus
    I heard "The Thing" does a cameo in a snowy Kurt Russell scene.... (John Carpernter's Thing....not Marvel's)
    • tommyturner
      I know you are kidding, but I really wanted that to be true.
    • Tester
      awesome !!
  • LV 426
    Reservoir Cowboy's with a sprinkle of Django.
    • Wirehedd
      ..and a taste of Venus VanDam thrown in. :)
  • Wirehedd
    Would have loved to see a cameo by a slim and hostile sounding Val Kilmer but alas I don't think that will ever happen again. It also could be it's being supplemented by the great Walt Goggins in Val's place. I can almost hear Goggins' "I'm yer huckleberry". Russell, Dern, Jackson, Roth and Madsen make this a seriously interesting movie with a regrouping from Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction. The Django feel is another issue but these great actors in a close scene with the dialogue we can always expect from Tarantino films and I'm still excited for this movie.
