'The Hateful Eight' Trailer Attached to 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For'

August 14, 2014

The Hateful Eight

Normally news about a trailer debuting in theaters isn't something necessary to report on. But when that film is a Quentin Tarantino production that hasn't even begun shooting and almost didn't go in front of cameras because of a script leak and began the road to revival with a live-reading of the script, then that's worth reporting on. SlashFilm has noticed two intriguing bits of information that indicate the first teaser trailer for The Hateful Eight, the eight film from the director of Pulp Fiction and Inglourious Basterds, will be attached to Sin City: A Dame to Kill For when the film hits theaters on August 22nd next week.

First, the Alberta Film Ratings board, a website that posts when new trailers have been classified for distribution in Canada, has recently classified a trailer for The Hateful Eight with a running time of 1 minute and 40 seconds. That actually happened a few days ago, and no one noticed until now. If that were the only source of information, we'd be a little leery, but several employees from movie theaters have also contacted SlashFilm to say that they've been notified that a trailer for The Hateful Eight will be included with the Digital Cinema Package (DCP) for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. And then there's also this image right here:

That comes from a distribution information page from The Weinstein Company, which also has information that says the trailer for The Hateful Eight will not be available online, and exclusively only available when audiences see Sin City: A Dame to Kill For in theaters. So it's pretty safe to say that there will be some kind of teaser trailer for Quentin Tarantino's new western attached to the sequel to the graphic novel adaptation that he guest directed all the way back in 2005. It's a tricky way to get more butts in the seats for the Sin City sequel, it does bring some magic back to the movie-going experience, even if only for a couple minutes.

We've already seen a teaser poster for the film, one that touted a limited roadshow engagement sometime in 2015, so a teaser trailer wouldn't be so surprising. However, as we noted before, this film hasn't even begun shooting. So this teaser trailer will either just use some fancy graphics and title cards, or Quentin Tarantino shot something specifically to tease his western. Is there a chance we'll see any of the cast members like Bruce Dern, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Madsen, Kurt Russell, James Remar, Amber Tamblyn, Walton Goggins or Zoe Bell pop up? You'll have to go to the movies to find out. Cool?

That was a sexy teaser. The movie was good but not as good as the teaser.

Yeah. I remember when they first aired it before they had officially started production. So brilliant.

Just because a movie stars kids doesn't mean it's a goonies rip off
