“One of them fellas…is not who he says he is…”
Today the Weinstein Company has released the full trailer for The Hateful Eight and man, does it look exciting! The film has been on slow boil for the past few years but it looks like right after we get over our (hopeful) Star Wars hangover, we will have something to look forward to. The plot of the story is this:
In THE HATEFUL EIGHT, set six or eight or 12 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…
In a way, it’s slightly familiar to The Dragon Gate Inn. But the question on my mind is, how similar will it be to Tarantino’s last effort, Django Unchained, with its very colorful language and scenery? Well, if Sam Jackson is in it, I am sure we will lose count at how many times he calls someone a ‘motherf*cker’.
This movie is set to release on Christmas Day 2015.
