‘The Hateful Eight’ Face Betrayal and Deception in a Bloody New Trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s Eighth Feature Film

The Weinstein Company has released a bloody new official trailer for The Hateful Eight, Quentin Tarantino‘s upcoming eighth feature film that is about a group of dangerous individuals who are trapped together in a post-Civil War Wyoming. The trailer gives us a glimpse at how the eight hateful soles face plenty of betrayal and deception while being cooped up together. The Hateful Eight is scheduled to only be released in 70 mm film format on December 25th, 2015 and then released in digital theaters on January 8th, 2016.
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 (Walton 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 (Tim Roth), the hangman of Red Rock, cow-puncher Joe Gage (Michael 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…
