The latest trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful 8 has dropped and, I will say this, as the title suggests – this is classic Tarantino in its purest form. In fact, I had such a great time watching this, dare I say it – this might just be one of Tarantino’s best movie, all time.
Okay, okay – I’ve built it up way too much. I tend to do that when I get excited. Why don’t you judge it for yourself:
For those unaware of the full and specific synopsis, check it out below.
In The Hateful 8, 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 (Russell) and his fugitive Daisy Domergue (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 (Jackson), a black former union soldier turned infamous bounty hunter, and Chris Mannix (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 (Bichir), who’s taking care of Minnie’s while she’s visiting her mother, is holed up with Oswaldo Mobray (Roth), the hangman of Red Rock, cow-puncher Joe Gage (Madsen), and Confederate General Sanford Smithers (Dern). As the storm overtakes the mountainside stopover, our eight travelers come to learn they may not make it to Red Rock after all…
Not much I can say that I haven’t already said, I am an unabashed Taratino lover – the man can do no wrong in my eyes. When word broke that this script leaked out causing Tarantino to scrap plans for the movie, I was completely upset and scared we would never see the movie grace the 70 Millimeter Projection (because he’s the film lover when it comes to stories and movies like this, the 70 mm print is a no brainer here).
So we, of course, know how that leaked script escapade turned out… And thank the film gods for that; this new trailer proves why Tarantino was so damn upset in the first place. He wants us, the audience, to go in and have a grand old time. Man if this trailer didn’t make me smile from ear to ear.I can’t wait.
The movie stars Samuel L. Jackson as Major Marquis Warren, Kurt Russell as John “The Hangman” Ruth, Jennifer Jason Leigh as Daisy Domergue, Walton Goggins as Chris Mannix, Demian Bichir as Bob, Tim Roth as Oswaldo Mobray, Michael Madsen as Joe Gage, and Bruce Dern as General Sanford Smithers.
Now, how about all of you out there in the Nation? Are you excited for the movie? Was there any doubt we would get the ‘eighth film’ from Quentin Tarantino? Drop in some of your thoughts, I would love to hear what you think!
The Hateful 8 is in select theaters on Christmas Day & everywhere on January 8th, 2016!
