After much discussion recently about promo clips giving away virtually the whole plot months before the actual film comes out, this – the first official trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight – does nothing of the sort.
Instead, Samuel L Jackson, Kurt Russell, Demian Bichir, Tim Roth, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Michael Madsen all make appearances, each spouting classic Tarantino dialogue, getting us very excited yet, crucially, we have absolutely no idea what the plot will be.
From previous news though, we know that Jackson stars as Major Marquis Warren, a union solder-turned-bounty hunter, who gets a ride in fellow bounty hunter John Ruth’s (Russell) stagecoach. They stumble into a blizzard before finding shelter in a small shack, where they run into a bunch of outlaws – making eight in total.
It looks very much like a cross between Django Unchained and Reservoir Dogs and we’d bet our whiskey-drinkin’, gun-totin’ bottom dollar it’s going to be yet another Tarantino classic.
The Hateful Eight opens in select theatres on Christmas Day before a full release in January
