‘The Hateful Eight’: 12 Things to Know About Quentin Tarantino’s Bloody Western

     December 21, 2015


From filmmaker Quentin Tarantino, The Hateful Eight finds bounty hunter John Ruth (Kurt Russell) on his way to taking fugitive Daisy Domergue (Jennifer Jason Leigh) to justice in Red Rock. Along the way, he picks up Major Marquis Warren (Samuel L. Jackson), a black former union soldier turned bounty hunter, and Chris Mannix (Walton Goggins), a southern renegade who claims to be the town’s new Sheriff, and the group stop off at Minnie’s Haberdashery to seek refuge from an oncoming blizzard. When they arrive, Minnie is nowhere to be found, as they are greeted by a caretaker named Bob (Demian Bichir), hangman Oswaldo Mobray (Tim Roth), cow-puncher Joe Gage (Michael Madsen) and Confederate General Sanford Smithers (Bruce Dern), and they all quickly realize that the blizzard may be the least of their problems.

During a conference at the film’s press day, Tarantino, Russell, Leigh, Jackson, Goggins, Bichir, Roth, Madsen, Dern and Channing Tatum shared funny stories from the set and talked about what’s unique about making a Tarantino film.
