Forget about anything from Marvel Studios or involving the Star Wars universe, the real event movie for film buffs this year is the latest movie by Quentin Tarantino. The former video store clerk is now an auteur of such proportion that he’s a one man franchise series event, every movie he makes is an occasion and it seems like The Hateful Eight is going to be no exception. Now, after a very powerful and positive presentation at San Diego Comic Con, those unfortunate enough to not make it to Nerd Mecca this year can get their first look at the movie in a very cool-looking trailer with its beautifully captured snowscapes which will make you feel the chill even if its 100 degrees outside.
Behold! The first trailer for The Hateful Eight complete with Samuel L. Jackson monologuing!
That really is some glorious 70 mm photography in that trailer. The Hateful Eight will be the first movie in 50 years to use the format, and from the looks of it on my admittedly small screen, this is going to be one of those movies where you find the biggest screen possible in your immediate area to see it on. Combined with a completely new score by Ennio Morricone, and the ever-present fervor about anything Tarantino, and you’ve got a recipe for the film buffiest film of the year.
But can it deliver? At this point, Tarantino’s got more than just a handle on the western genre. Django Unchained was a smash success, and even Kill Bill Volume 2 had its own western vibe that came through pretty clear in the finished film. Tarantino will have to hit really far off the mark for this to land with a thud, and at this point are the faithful about to turn into doubters? Unlikely, but I guess we’ll find out for sure in December.
In post-Civil War Wyoming, bounty hunters try to find shelter during a blizzard but get involved in a plot of betrayal and deception. Will they survive?
The Hateful Eight starring Channing Tatum, Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Walton Goggins, Tim Roth, Zoe Bell, Demian Bichir, Michael Madsen, and Bruce Dern, will be in theaters everywhere on Christmas Day.
