Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming The Hateful Eight has a lot to be excited about. First off, it’s a Tarantino movie, which are always an event; it’s also a western, and we’re stoked to see what he brings to the genre, especially after getting his feet wet with Django Unchained; and, of course, he’s put together a cast that makes us jump up and down and clap our hands with glee. And now, thanks to EW, we’ve got a ton of new images that reveal just how grizzled and tore up these badasses are.
We saw the magazine cover a few days back, but this is our best look yet, and gives you a glimpse of more of this rogues gallery of characters. Set in post-Civil War Wyoming, a vicious blizzard forces a group of bounty hunters and general ne’er-do-wells to seek shelter in a frontier fort, only to find themselves involved in a plot of betrayal and deception. Sounds like fertile ground for QT to work.
Kurt Russell and his awesome mustache play John “The Hangman” Ruth, Samuel L. Jackson plays Major Marquis Warren, Jennifer Jason Leigh plays Daisy Domergue, Bruce Dern plays General Sandy Smithers, Michael Madsen plays Joe Gage, Walton Goggins plays Sheriff Chris Mannix, Tim Roth plays Oswaldo Mobray, Zoe Bell plays Six-Horse Judy, Demian Bichir plays Bob, and even Channing Tatum gets in on the act. Most, but not all, of these folks are present and accounted for in these photos.
The Hateful Eight arrives this Christmas. Happy Holidays indeed. Check out the photos below.
