Oh man. It’s stupid how much I love the first (real) trailer for The Hateful Eight. It’s been a struggle to avoid reading Quentin Tarantino’s screenplay, ever since it leaked online years ago, but seeing all of this come to pass, and having no idea what is going to happen to these eight less-than-stellar individuals trapped together in a snowy cabin, makes the whole thing feel extra exciting.
I love the much-discussed, crazy facial hair! The small details that make everything seem so much more interesting, like Jennifer Jason Leigh’s black eye! Considering most of this movie will take place on a single set, inside that cabin, the production value looks out of this world. Not that I’d expect anything less from Tarantino.
There’s not much more that I can even think to say about this teaser. I’d honestly rather just end this article and rewatch it for the ten thousandth time.
The Hateful Eight opens Christmas Day. Whatever other gifts you give or get that day are bullshit, by comparison.
