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...
With the film shot in Ultra Panavision 65mm to be screened in glorious 70mm (where available), this new glimpse is further evidence of the immense scope of Tarantino's snowy vistas and cramped saloon. And the cast is happy to chew on his typically hard-nosed dialogue, promising plenty of tough confrontations in their future.
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).
The Hateful Eight is set to arrive in UK cinemas on 8 January.
