The first teaser trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s highly anticipated new bloodbath, The Hateful Eight has hit the web. It features a loaded cast of Tarantino veterans, including Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Walton Goggins, Tim Roth and Michael Madsen, and a return from legendary composer Ennio Morricone to provide the score.
We still don’t really know much about the story – that’s the beauty of the teaser, even one at over 2 minutes – but it looks like a lot of crazy fun. Tarantino’s regular DP Robert Richardson shot the film in Ultra Panavision 70.
The film will première for a one week exclusive season in 70MM at selected cinemas (of which there are maybe 2 in Australia??). It will then open nationwide, with the release date TBC. US audiences get a limited 70MM release from Christmas Day, with wide digital release from January 8 2016.
We can’t wait. Tell us what you think of the trailer.
