The fantastic director Quentin Tarantino comes back to the big screen this Christmas with his next feature film, The Hateful Eight. With a tagline like “spend the holidays with someone you hate,” you know it’s going to be an interesting experience. The first official trailer was released today – check it out below!
Here’s the official synopsis for the film:
While racing toward the town of Red Rock in post-Civil War Wyoming, bounty hunter John “The Hangman” Ruth (Kurt Russell) and his fugitive prisoner, Daisy (Jennifer Jason Leigh) encounter another bounty hunter (Samuel L. Jackson) and a man (Walton Goggins) who claims to be a sheriff. Hoping to find shelter from a blizzard, the group travels to a stagecoach stopover located on a mountain pass. After encountering four strangers, they may not make it to their destination.
John announces to the group that the reward for Daisy is $10,000 and the money is his.
As you can expect from a Tarantino film, things will get violent and wild as these eight unique and colorful characters continue to sit it out in one building together with a lot of money on the line.
There are some great lines (again, as one would expect from a Tarantino script) and I think it’s clear there will be plenty to love from the performances. I always look forward to new Tarantino films and this is no exception.
The Hateful Eight stars Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Walton Goggins, Demian Bichir, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Bruce Dern, and Channing Tatum. It hits theaters December 25th.
