This trailer will not only make your day but will also make you uneasy and hoping for Christmas to arrive sooner than ever! The first official trailer for Academy Award-winning filmmaker Quentin Tarantino’s eight film ‘The Hateful Eight’ is finally here!
Things get extremely intense when we see the eight main characters gathered around in one room in the trailer. Set in the decade after the Civil War, The Hateful Eight’s trailer shows wintry Wyoming landscape, where we meet bounty hunter John Ruth (played by Kurt Russell), famously known as ‘The Hangman’, taking fugitive Daisy Domergue (played by Jennifer Jason Leigh) to the town of Red Rock to bring Domergue to justice by hanging her. On the road, the two cross their path with a former union soldier turned infamous bounty hunter, Major Marquis Warren (played by Samuel L. Jackson), who accompanies them. As they move ahead, they come across Chris Mannix (played by Walton Goggins), who claims to be town’s new Sheriff. As the blizzard takes place, the four of them take a shelter at Minnie’s Haberdarshery, where they meet other four strangers, John Gage (Michael Madsen), General Sanford Smithers (Bruce Dern), Oswaldo Mobray (Tim Roth) and Bob (Demian Bichir).
As the eight strangers gather around in one room, things get heated and as a lot of threats are made, piercing gazes are exchanged, guns come out flying from each direction. By the looks of it, we are sure that in this eight film by Kill Bill director Quentin Tarantino, the theatre halls are going to echo with the sound of gun shots. With a room full of deadly and brutal killers, one cannot expect a happy ending and everyone to get along. As if the tension wasn’t already there in the room, John aka ‘The Hangman’ voices a big suspicion by saying, “One of them fellas is not what he says he is.” Now what’s a Tarantino film without some intense dialogues?
After watching the trailer, one thing is for sure that these eight strangers share one deadly connection. The trailer ends with a warning by Major Marquis Warren, who says,“Move a little strange, you’re gonna get a bullet. Not a warning, not a question, a bullet.”
If Tarantino’s name or the huge cast or the trailer itself wasn’t enough to convince you, the fact that it’s shot on 70mm by cinematographer Robert Richardson will do the magic. The Weinstein Company will release The Hateful Eight in few selected theatres on December 25, 2015, on Christmas opening in 70mm. Later the film will open with a digital theatrical release nationwide on January 8, 2016.
