With the Summer season coming to its end very soon, it's that time of year again where all the early 2016 releases begin to kick off their marketing. And, this evening, the official, first teaser for Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight has released. There's also a poster to accompany it.

Tarantino is, arguably, one of the best directors working today. I think that all of his films are phenomenal and his latest project, The Hateful Eight sounds like it's going to be continue his great track record, as yet another work of true art. It has an intriguing plot and sounds like it has the potential to be something special, plus there's the impressive cast ensemble too. Besides, it's a Western. The director's last film, Django Unchained, was a Western and it was epic. If that alone is anything to go by, The Hateful Eight is worth getting excited about.
This evening, The Weinstein Company have debuted a teaser trailer for the forthcoming film (a real one, with actual footage and not like the dud that has been floating around for some time) and it's everything you want from a Tarantino film; it's tense, bloody, there's guns, the cinematography looks stunning and the dialogue is riveting. It's brutally beautiful. It's safe to say, this film looks like it's going to be great. A poster was also released - the other day - for the project and it puts the spotlight on Kurt Russell and Jennifer Jason Leigh's characters, both of whom we find a bit more about in the trailer.
Here's the film's 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.
With Quentin Tarantino at the helm, and starring Samuel L. JacksonTim RothMichael MadsenKurt RussellChanning TatumDemian BichirJennifer Jason LeighBruce Dern and Walton GogginsThe Hateful Eight is set to release on January 8th.
