Hateful Eight poster

Last week, /Film broke the news The Weinstein Company would be including a teaser trailer for Quentin Tarantino‘s The Hateful Eight with Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. The filmmaker has yet to start shooting the film, so many were curious would the trailer would entail. Well, now we know.

The trailer has been seen and while the video isn’t online yet (and likely won’t be, at least officially) a detailed description is ours to share. There’s no footage, just a selection of character names and roles and some country music.

Read the first Hateful Eight trailer description below.

The Hateful Eight trailer description was sent into Collider. Here goes:

The trailer, it contains no footage.  It opens on snow dunes, a western-style ballad 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.

As of right now, the rumored cast includes Samuel L. JacksonBruce DernMichael Madsen, Kurt RussellJames RemarAmber TamblynWalton Goggins, and Zoe Bell. That’s eight people, but it’s unclear if they’ll be playing the roles above.

Either way, while we don’t have a specific release date yet, we do know that 2015 brings the next film from Quentin Tarantino. Are you excited for The Hateful Eight?

Update: The primary song is ‘Gimme Danger’ by Iggy and the Stooges from the brilliant ‘Raw Power’ LP. (The tune isn’t even vaguely a “western ballad,” but that’s OK.) Now we want to know which mix the trailer uses — David Bowie’s original, or the much more raw and distorted mix done by Iggy Pop many years later? (Edit: via the bootleg going around, it sounds like it’s the Iggy Pop mix.)

Update: 2: Here’s the second song from the trailer:
