The Hateful Eight

Trailer Time: Hateful Eight (2015) *Tarantino Returns to the West* PLUS Production Stills

The last time Quentin Tarantino went west we got Django Unchained and that seemed to work out pretty well, so this fall we’ll see another all star cast and blood squibs the size of watermelons in The Hateful Eight.  Trailer Above, full synopsis and stills from the film below.  No definite release date, but I’d be sometime around awards season.hateful-eight-01a

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…

  1. I’ll never, ever forget watching Pulp Fiction for the very first time. That unique, mind-blowing experience. But there is more to life than old movies, Mr. Tarantino, and more to philosophy than “Shoot out the other guy’s kneecaps before he shoots out yours.”

    Django Unchained was the last go-round for Reasonable Critic.


  2. On the other hand, the great Brad Bird is on the cusp of mega-super-greatness… I just read that Incredibles 2 is probably his next film, and while that means a Brad Bird SW movie is that much farther down the line, I’d rather he starts with the thing I’ve been wanting him to make the longest. I hope you’re right about Tomorrowland, it looks wonderful.
