Trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight

The Hateful Eight has a Django Unchained-meets-Reservoir Dogs vibe, mixing an old west setting (it takes place just after the Civil War) with what becomes a single-location character drama. It also features several Tarantino vets among the eight leads, making it, at least at first glance, a treat for long-time fans of the Oscar-winning maverick.

The roster begins with Major Marquis Warren, a former US calvary leader played by Samuel L. Jackson. He commandeers a carriage that has been traveling through the Colorado mountains, carrying several other members of the title’s Hateful Eight: bounty hunter John “The Hangman” Ruth (Kurt Russell); Daisy Domergue (Jennifer Jason Leigh), the feral woman that Ruth has caught; and Chris Mannix (Walton Goggins), the goofy new sheriff in town.

The group rolls up to an old inn, where the blizzard forces a pit stop. There, they encounter a mysterious Mexican named Bob (Demian Bichir), former Confederate general Sandy Smithers (Bruce Dern), the sketchy Joe Gage (Michael Madsen), and the wily Oswaldo Mobray (Tim Roth).
