New Featurette for Tarantino's 'The Hateful Eight' on its Ensemble Cast
"We've got eight people that are very different, very dangerous and to varying degrees, hateful…" The Weinstein Company has debuted a new featurette for the upcoming Tarantino movie The Hateful Eight, starring one helluva ensemble cast. The eight who get stuck in a blizzard at Minnie's Haberdashery are: Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Walton Goggins, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Bruce Dern and Demian Bichir. This featurette explores the dynamics and relationships of the cast, to compliment the technical featurette about 70mm from before. The best part about this is the cast, and Goggins is one of my favorites, plus Jackson as always. Check out this fantastic 4-min featurette below.
Here's the new "Ensemble" featurette for Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight, direct from YouTube:
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.

I always get so damn excited when he puts out a new one. And I've never been disappointed. It's an event for me, and this is probably his strongest cast since Pulp Fiction.

are you as pompous in real life?
dan on Dec 7, 2015
no bo, pompous is correct - and you prove it every time you post.

Bo, your friends may enjoy your opinionated approach to things, but it shows a lack of self awareness not to realise that an online forum lacks the critical ingredient that makes your attitude seem funny to your friends; namely context. Your friends have known you obviously for some time and are aware of a lot more of you than some isolated and what seem outwardly like pompous, judgmental and dismissive assessments of things that you currently only have limited information on. Giving you the benefit of the doubt, I can see how in certain contexts your commentary would be funny or ironic, but in isolation from such contexts AND without being able to hear things like the tone of your voice or see your face, it is equally possible you could just be being pompous and dismissive, as Dan said. As for the film, well it looks like a fun break from the comic book dominated box office.

A fair response Bo. You got very much to the crux of what I was saying with this point in particular though: "Also easy to project what is going on within one's self onto to others hoping to experience the relief from one's own short-comings by placing them upon others. Eh?" Bald text divorced from visual, auditory and historical context is almost like a literary form of the Rorschach Test; people fill what they read with all their own assumptions, prejudices and insecurities. So in a sense, you are right that the response of people like Dan says plenty about them, but by the same token the "bald text" can be read so many ways without adding layers of context on top of it that such reactions are inevitable, particularly when your comment is being critical of something people like.
