If you go to see Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, you’re also going to get to see the first trailer for Quentin Tarantino‘s The Hateful Eight.  Additionally, the trailer might not be released online, but we’ve managed to get a look at it, so we’re going to describe what it contains.  Considering that the movie hasn’t started shooting yet, it’s along the lines of what most people predicted it would be, although it also confirms that that the movie is shooting in 70mm.

Hit the jump for The Hateful Eight trailer description.  The film opens in 2015, and stars Bruce Dern, Kurt Russell, Amber Tamblyn, Michael MadsenJames RemarWalton GogginsZoe Bell, and Samuel L. Jackson.

For those who don’t know, the western takes place in post-Civil War Wyoming and tells the story of a small group of stagecoach passengers who are stranded during a blizzard.  A large chunk of the film takes place in a bar, and during a live read, the characters included a couple of bounty hunters (Jackson and Russell), a Confederate general (Dern), a cowboy (Madsen), a transplanted Englishman (Tim Roth), a soldier (Goggins), and a female prisoner (Tamblyn).  The live read didn’t include Remar and Bell, and Roth isn’t listed in the announced cast, so we’ll have to see how that shakes out.  There’s always the possibility that more actors might be added to the cast.

As for the trailer, it contains no footage.  It opens on snow dunes, a western-style ballad [Update: The Film Stage identified the song as Iggy Pop & The Stooges’ “Gimme Danger”] with titles about strangers being stranded in a blizzard, but “They soon discovered they shared a deadly connection” (blood spatters on titles).  The western ballad begins to rock (I can’t identify the song) as the title comes up “The New Film by Quentin Tarantino”; then it lists the Hateful Eight:

  1. Major Marquis Warren: “The Bounty Hunter”
  2. John Ruth: “The Hangman”
  3. Daisy Domergue: “The Prisoner”
  4. Chris Mannix: “The Sheriff”
  5. Bob: “The Mexican”
  6. Oswald Mobray: “The Little Man”
  7. Joe Gage: “The Cow Puncher”
  8. General Sandy Smithers: “The Confederate”

Then we see bloody numbers count up to “8”, which leads to “8 MAKES HATE”.  Gunshots then shoot off “makes” then “hate” before the title turns to “The H8Ful Eight”.  The music returns to a more classic western tune (there’s whistling), and puts up “From Academy Award Winner Quentin Tarantino”.

And then, the screen fills with “See It in Glorious 70mm {Super Cinemascope}”

Finally, the title “2015” comes up, and fade to black.  End trailer; begin even more excitement for this movie.
