Got room for one more? The first trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight has arrived, covered in snowfall, intrigue and just a little bit of blood.
“For me it has more of a Western Iceman Cometh kind of vibe about it,” Tarantino told EW earlier this year about the film, his eighth feature and one that calls to mind his first, Reservoir Dogs, in its structural simplicity. “[It’s] a bunch of guys in a room who can’t trust each other. That wasn’t a marching order when I sat down to write the script, but pretty quickly I realized this is kind of a nice coming-full-circle.”
The cast includes a surfeit of Tarantino regulars — Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Walton Goggins, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, and Bruce Dern all reunited with the filmmaker for the project — and three newbies to his world: Jennifer Jason Leigh, Demian Bichir, and Channing Tatum (who makes a cameo appearance in The Hateful Eight, and doesn’t seem to appear in the trailer).
“For me, it’s the same guy, but he has a lot more toys. He’s got all of the equipment to play with,” Roth, who starred in Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction (plus Tarantino’s segment of Four Rooms), said of the director during an interview with EW at Comic-Con. “He’s was born to do it, and he got to do it, and he does it well. And now he’s got a lot of things he can play around with. It was a lot of fun.”
