The Hateful Eight – The official teaser trailer for Tarantino’s latest film

After a long, LONG wait we finally get to see footage from Mr Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming film, The Hateful Eight (2015); a badass Western about a group of eight strangers who find themselves all sheltering from a blizzard in the same cabin. However there might be more to one of those strangers than it first seems. As Oswaldo Mobray (Tim Roth) puts it in the trailer: “Looks like Minnie’s Haberdashery is about to get cozy for the next few days”…

Tarantino’s strengths have always been his great characterisation, stellar dialogue, and OTT violence, and as such the concept behind The Hateful Eight seems like the best of all those world’s put together. Looking like a cross between Django Unchained (2012) and Reservoir Dogs (1992) – incidentally my favourite film of all time – The Hateful Eight certainly doesn’t seem to disappoint, even in this short trailer.

It also contains two of my favourite actors: Tim Roth and Michael Madsen (did I mention I love Reservoir Dogs?). The rest of that cast list is also looking pretty great though. In particular I’m looking forward to seeing the brilliant Walton Goggins as Sheriff Chris Mannix, Demián Bichir as the mysterious Bob, Jennifer Jason Leigh as prisoner Daisy Domergue, and (of course) Samuel L. Jackson as Major Marquis Warren.

With an amazing, star-studded cast, a perfect Western setting, and an even more perfect story, The Hateful Eight is already shaping up to be one of Tarantino’s best films. Time will only tell if everyone will get to see this on 70mm as Tarantino intends people to see it though. Select cinemas will be showing it in this specific format from Christmas Day 2015, before finally coming to other digital screens in January 2016 (or possibly later if you’re in the UK like me). But I would certainly travel as many miles as I had to in order to see this, or any other Tarantino film, in its intended format.

Either way, I can’t wait to see this. And if this is a preview trailer, here’s hoping we get another one with even more footage in the next few months…
