Perhaps our most-anticipated film for the rest of the calendar year, Quentin Tarantino‘s The Hateful Eight, will finally be released next month, and today we have a new full-length trailer. Since our last preview, we got the substantial details on the two ways one can experience this film.
“The roadshow version has an overture and an intermission, and it will be three hours, two minutes,” Tarantino said last month. “The multiplex version is about six minutes shorter, not counting the intermission time, which is about 12 minutes.” While The Weinstein Company has yet to release the full theater list for 70mm, it sounds like an experience not to be missed, especially after this latest enticing preview — even if it means many hours of driving to your nearest location.
The Hateful Eight 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, Bruce Dern as General Sanford Smithers, and Channing Tatum in a small role.
Have a look below at the new trailer:
In THE HATEFUL EIGHT, 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…
The Hateful Eight will open on December 25 in 70mm-equipped theaters; a wide release will follow on January 8, 2016.
