A New Trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight

One of the films we're really looking forward to this December is Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful EightAfter a tortured production process (in that his first script was leaked), Tarantino's film is ready to see the light of day, and this new trailer gives all you Tarantino fans plenty of reasons to be excited. With his muse, Samuel L. Jackson, and a cast that includes Kurt Russell and Jennifer Jason Leigh (who is so excellent in her voice work in Anomalisa), consider The Hateful Eight a proper Christmas present (that is, if you live in the areas it'll be premiering in select theaters). For the rest of you, January 8 is the day.

Here's the synopsis provided by The Weinstein Co:

Set six or eight or twelve years after the Civil War, a stagecoach hurtles through the wintry Wyoming landscape. The passengers, bounty hunter John Ruth (Kurt Russell) and his fugitive Daisy Domergue (Jennifer Jason Leigh), race towards the town of Red Rock where Ruth, known in these parts as “The Hangman,” will bring Domergue to justice. Along the road, they encounter two strangers: Major Marquis Warren (Samuel L. Jackson), a black former union soldier turned infamous bounty hunter, and Chris Mannix (Walter Goggins), a southern renegade who claims to be the town’s new Sheriff. Losing their lead on the blizzard, Ruth, Domergue, Warren and Mannix seek refuge at Minnie's Haberdashery, a stagecoach stopover on a mountain pass. When they arrive at Minnie’s, they are greeted not by the proprietor but by four unfamiliar faces. Bob (Demian Bichir), who’s taking care of Minnie’s while she’s visiting her mother, is holed up with Oswaldo Mobray (Timothy Roth), the hangman of Red Rock, cow-puncher Joe Gage (Madsen), and Confederate General Sanford Smithers (Bruce Dern). As the storm overtakes the mountainside stopover, our eight travelers come to learn they may not make it to Red Rock after all…
