Slowly but surely new info is being released for Quentin Tarantino‘s upcoming 8th directorial film “The Hateful Eight“. We have now been served with a brand new theatrical poster for the feature (seen here obviously). The new poster screams Tarontino with its pulpy and stylized imagery. This new poster only highlights two of the main stars in Kurt Russell (sporting the greatest mustache of all time) and Jennifer Jason Leigh. A second poster was also released. This one done in the same style as the previous one is of actor Demain Bichir.
Typically when we get a new theatrical poster there is normally a trailer that follows a few days afterwards. Perhaps each day of the week we’ll get a new poster and at the end…a trailer? Hopefully this is the case (I’m pretty sure they premiered a trailer at comic con). I’d love to be able to see this film in its 70mm glory (which the poster also makes mention of) but sadly I doubt my local theaters will be able to do that. This is a Tarantino film so either way I know I am sure to get a great film.
The film will be released in limited theaters on December 25th with a wide release on January 8th, 2016. The official synopsis reads like this,
“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…”
