There’s a Quentin Tarantino movie coming out this year and with every new thing about it we learn or see, it just looks better and better. Case in point, this new trailer.
Holy hell, that is pretty. It’s great to know that eight films in, Tarantino is still evolving as a director, one who’s gone from an innate sense of style behind the camera to one whose films are just simply gorgeous.
This might be the only movie that has any chance of topping Mad Max: Fury Road as my favorite of 2015.
Tarantino’s latest hits theatres December 25. If you want to know what you’re in for, read the official synopsis.
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…
