First stills from Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight arrive online

With shooting wrapped and Quentin Tarantino (Django Unchained) busy knocking his latest, vengeful Western The Hateful Eight into shape in post-production, the first official stills from the film have arrived online courtesy of Entertainment Weekly.

Tarantino's latest is set roughly a decade after the American Civil War and finds an eclectic group of law keepers, outlaws, mercenaries, bounty hunters and fugitives holed up in a stagecoach waypoint when a massive snowstorm hits the area. Soon, the two men transporting a female prisoner across the country start to wonder if they will actually make it out alive...

The main cast includes a blend of Tarantino old hands and those new to his films, with Samuel L. Jackson (Django Unchained), Kurt Russell (Death Proof), Jennifer Jason Leigh (The Spectacular Now), Walton Goggins (Lincoln), Demián Bichir (Machete Kills), Michael Madsen (Kill Bill), James Parks (Machete), Zoe Bell (Death Proof) and Channing Tatum (Magic Mike).

"You have to ask Quentin, but I do think it's a bit of an intentional homage to Reservoir Dogs," Madsen tells Entertainment Weekly about the set-up, which features characters that all have secrets to hide. "It's one of those pictures where nobody really knows who anyone really is. It's kind of a masquerade party." For more details and pictures, head over to Entertainment Weekly.

The Hateful Eight should ride into US cinemas later this year, but there is no word as yet on a UK release date.
