Quentin Tarantino in Django Unchained

If you were one of the few people who caught Sin City: A Dame to Kill For last summer, you’re one of the few people who’ve already seen the first The Hateful Eight teaser trailer from Quentin Tarantino and The Weinstein Co. For everyone else, the Hateful Eight teaser trailer is finally available online. You can check it out after the jump. 

TWC officially released the Hateful Eight teaser this week, months after its initial theatrical debut.

At the point when the Hateful Eight teaser was released, Tarantino hadn’t started shooting. So the first teaser doesn’t have any footage, just a cool animation set to Iggy and the Stooges’ “Gimme Danger.”

The “Eight” of the title are:

  • Samuel L. Jackson as Major Marquis Warren, “The Bounty Hunter”
  • Kurt Russell as John Ruth, “The Hangman”
  • Jennifer Jason Leigh as Daisy Domergue, “The Prisoner”
  • Walton Goggins as Chris Mannix, “The Sheriff”
  • Demian Bichir as Bob, “The Mexican”
  • Tim Roth as Oswald Mobray, “The Little Man”
  • Michael Madsen as Joe Gage, “The Cow Puncher”
  • Bruce Dern as General Sandy Smithers, “The Confederate”

Channing Tatum also stars in an unspecified role. The Hateful Eight opens later this year.

In THE HATEFUL EIGHT, set six or eight or twelve years after the Civil War, a stagecoach hurtles through the wintry Wyoming landscape. The passengers, bounty hunter John Ruth (Russell) and his fugitive Daisy Domergue (Leigh), race towards the town of Red Rock where Ruth, known in these parts as “The Hangman,” will bring Domergue to justice. Along the road, they encounter two strangers: Major Marquis Warren (Jackson), a black former union soldier turned infamous bounty hunter, and Chris Mannix (Goggins), a southern renegade who claims to be the town’s new Sheriff. Losing their lead on the blizzard, Ruth, Domergue, Warren and Mannix seek refuge at Minnie’s Haberdashery, a stagecoach stopover on a mountain pass. When they arrive at Minnie’s, they are greeted not by the proprietor but by four unfamiliar faces. Bob (Bichir), who’s taking care of Minnie’s while she’s visiting her mother, is holed up with Oswaldo Mobray (Roth), the hangman of Red Rock, cow-puncher Joe Gage (Madsen), and Confederate General Sanford Smithers (Dern). As the storm overtakes the mountainside stopover, our eight travelers come to learn they may not make it to Red Rock after all…
