Watch Tarantino’s leaked ‘The Hateful Eight’ teaser trailer

Not much is known about Quentin Tarantino’s new upcoming movie, The Hateful Eight. This means that every sliver of information is precious to us. This latest taster we get is a trailer caught by a smartphone camera and posted on YouTube.

By now, we can tell from the teaser and poster art that the movie is going to be a Western. It seems Tarantino got bitten by the cowboys-and-crooks bug since Django: Unchained — which is probably a good thing and a genre that’s rather quiet today, think tumbleweeds.

According to the uploaded, the smartphone caught footage missed the first 8 to 14 seconds of the trailer. Have a gander:

The trailer introduces eight characters cut from different cloths but all “share a deadly connection”. They are as follows:

1. Major Marquis Warren — “The Bounty Hunter”
2. John Ruth — “The Hangman”
3. Daisy Dermargue — “The Prisoner”
4. Chris Mannix — “The Sheriff”
5. Bob — “The Mexican”
6. Oswaldo Mobray — “The Little Man”
7. Joe Gage — “The Cow Puncher”
8. General Sandy Smithers — “The Confederate”

Needless to say there will be a lot of blood. The trailer also ends off by announcing that the movie will be screened in “glorious 70mm” which means high-resolution film stock, twice as large as normal 35mm. Examples of this film technology in action include IMAX productions, and movies like Ben-Hur and The Master.

The Hateful Eight screening will start in 2015.

    Not only is the CPC definitely NOT a console, but Orion Prime is old news by now, great as it was!

    Hi @gryzor:disqus, thanks for the feedback!

    Haha, fair enough. I am aware the CPC is not a console I just thought it would be an interesting addition that fits the article’s theme well (especially for the sake of variety). And considering that original titles for outdated platforms aren’t released that often, I think Orion Prime still deserves its place on this list :)

    Any titles you would have liked to see in this list? And thanks for the read, your feedback is always welcome!

    To be fair, you do refer to it as “8-bit PC” which is correct, but my reaction was what it was because oh so many people refer to them as ‘consoles’ :D

    Actually there are tons of games released for the CPC nowadays – I pre-ordered my latest one (https://www.polyplay.xyz/navi.php?qs=the+dawn+of+kernel) this very week. If it’s adventures you’re after, then you could do much worse than taking a look at Doomsday – Lost Echoes (https://doomsdayproductions.org/) :)

    Lol, I see where you’re coming from :)

    Ah wow, thanks for sharing these titles. Really liking Lost Echoes’ vibe, looks incredibly intriguing! Loving the art as well.

    I’ve always had a soft spot for text adventure games (probably because I was obsessed with choose-your-own-adventure books when I was a kid)

    Well, to tell you the truth, there are so many games released for the CPC nowadays I’ve completely lots track indeed. Just check http://cpcwiki.eu/forum if you want to get an idea!

    And yes, Lost Echoes is a wonderful adventure actually, and not only because I’m in the credits :D The artwork is just beautiful and the puzzles are great to begin with – not to mention the great progression and different endings. Well worth a play, I’ve actually seen non-retro gamers giving it a try!
