Quentin Tarantino & Sam Jackson Are Re-Teaming For The Hateful Eight (Video)

Today (August 12), filmmaker Quentin Tarantino has released the trailer for his eighth studio film, The Hateful Eight. Set in the 1800s, the Western stars leading men Samuel L. Jackson (who has worked with the writer/director for more than 20 years), along with Kurt Russell (Escape From New York, Tombstone). Other stars include Tarantino veterans Tim Roth (Pulp Fiction) and Michael Madsen (Reservoir Dogs). Jennifer Jason Leigh (Fast Times At Ridgemont High) and Bruce Dern (Nebraska) also star.

The two-minute trailer presents the plot of the movie, which follows 2012’s Django Unchained, which earned Tarantino his second Academy Award Oscar for “Best Screenplay,” following 1994’s Pulp Fiction. The trailer shows the Colorado landscape and weather, where it was filmed. In interviews, Quentin cited the TV series “Bonanza” and “The Virginian” as primary influences, more than cinema Westerns.

The film is expected to reach theaters on December 25, 2015.
