The new trailer, which follows an excellent trailer released in August, puts Samuel L. Jackson’s “The Bounty Hunter” at the center of it all. And there’s really nothing quite like a trailer in which Jackson gets to monologue, parlay and wave loaded weapons around all while sporting some epic facial hair. In a normal setting, that might be enough to set the world of nerddom ablaze.
But wait, there’s more. Kurt Russell’s mustache! Walton Goggins! The absolutely trailer-stealing charm of Jennifer Jason Leigh. Tim Roth’s menacing smirk. Michael Madsen showing up to (we can only assume) do something horrific. Bruce Dern as a former Confederate General!
Aw hell, just watch this trailer with the same fervor that you had while watching the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer. We’re just as excited about returning to Tarantino’s world as we are for a return visit to a galaxy far, far away.
The Hateful Eight opens in limited release on Christmas Day, with a wide release set for January 8, 2016.
