Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight Teaser Trailer Released


By Karen Valenzuela, @VictoriaNoir89

The official teaser trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s next film The Hateful Eight has been released online! It will be Tarantino’s eighth feature film and most likely another masterpiece.

Tarantino has been a staple in American cinema since Reservoir Dogs came out in 1992. His fans are always chomping at the bit to see what he has to offer next. With cult hits like Pulp Fiction (1994), Kill Bill Vol.1 and 2 (2003, 2004) and his most recent contributions Inglourious Basterds (2009) and Django Unchained (2012), moviegoers have been waiting for his next project’s trailer for a while.

The Hateful Eight made waves at this year’s International Comic Con in San Diego with a 7-minute supercut of the film presented in Hall H. Nothing but great reviews came out of the panel, but one thing in particular had movie lovers everywhere rejoicing.

Legendary film score composer Ennio Morricone, known for spaghetti Western classics like A Fistful of Dollars (1964) and The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly (1966), composed an original score for The Hateful Eight. This is his first original Western score in 40 years. If you’re unfamiliar with Mr. Morricone, think back to just about any scene in television or film that has two characters facing off, the camera zooming in on each character’s eyes as they glare at one another. The music that can be heard in the background, with that legendary coyote-esque whistle, was originally composed by Morricone for The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. It might be one of the most used themes ever in the history of cinema. Morricone composing original work for a Tarantino Western is probably the best entertainment news we’ll hear this year! Probably.

The Hateful Eight follows bounty hunter John “The Hangman” Ruth (Kurt Russell) and his prisoner Daisy Domergue (Jennifer Jason Leigh) whom he’s taking to town to hang for her crimes. They meet Union soldier turned bounty hunter Major Marquis Warren (Samuel L. Jackson) along the way. And when a raging blizzard forces them to hole up in a mountain cabin, they meet a few other enigmatic, dangerous characters, played by the likes of Bruce Dern, Channing Tatum, et cetera. It’s going to be a powder keg of tension, and because it’s a Tarantino film, there’s going to be a shoot-out of epic proportions in which many will die. Also there’s a character named Six-Horse Judy, played by famed stuntwoman Zoë Bell, so there’s that.

The Weinstein Company has a habit of putting out award-winning films, as does Tarantino. The Hateful Eight looks like it will get a number of nominations, including one for Robert Richardson’s snowy Wyoming cinematography. Not to mention the fact that The Hateful Eight will be shown in 70mm in a handful of cities. This will certainly be the best cinematic experience of the entire year.

The Hateful Eight will be released in select theaters on December 25, 2015 and everywhere on January 8, 2016.

Check. It. Out.
