New Photo And Comic-Con Trip In Store For Quentin Tarantino’s THE HATEFUL EIGHT
Director Quentin Tarantino will be bringing sneak peek footage of his highly anticipated THE HATEFUL EIGHT to Comic-Con 2015 and, today, the Weinstein Company has released a new photo from the film.
The Pulp Fiction director will be taking over Hall H on Saturday, July 11 at 1:30 p.m. to talk about his ambitious 19th-century tale of eight dangerous people holed up during a blizzard and to show off footage from the upcoming western. Comic-Con’s go-to moderator Chris Hardwick will emcee the proceedings, which will also include appearances from unspecified members of the cast.

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 (Kurt Russell) and his fugitive Daisy Domergue (Jennifer Jason 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 (Samuel L. Jackson), a black former union soldier turned infamous bounty hunter, and Chris Mannix (Walton 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 (Demian Bichir), who’s taking care of Minnie’s while she’s visiting her mother, is holed up with Oswaldo Mobray (Tim Roth), the hangman of Red Rock, cow-puncher Joe Gage (Michael Madsen), and Confederate General Sanford Smithers (Bruce Dern).
As the storm overtakes the mountainside stopover, our eight travelers come to learn they may not make it to Red Rock after all…
Let the awards buzz begin – THE HATEFUL EIGHT will be released on Christmas Day in 70MM, for two weeks, and will expand on January 8, 2015.
