Man, The Hateful Eight really is the boat the refuses to stop leaking. After the debacle surrounding the ridiculously early leak of the film’s script – which was followed up by one of the all-time great hissy fits where the project was temporarily shelved altogether – we’ve now got something of a leak of the first teaser trailer for the film too.
Quentin Tarantino‘s next bloodbath of a film isn’t scheduled for release for at least a year yet, but already the promotion machine is starting to whirr, with this teaser being attached to the theatrical release of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. But this being 2014 and the Internet being the Internet, that was bound to not remain solely in theatres for very long.
Fortunately for Quentin, owing to the fact that its still so dang far out from release day, he hasn’t actually shot a damned thing for it yet. So the trailer at this stage is just a nifty looking animated inforgraphic type number.
Despite the fact that that’s all we’ve got of it so far, consider us KEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEN.
The film itself is about “a bounty hunter and his prisoner traveling by stagecoach to a town called Red Rock get stuck in a blizzard and meet other travelers along the way that need a lift. Sidetracked by the blizzard, they stop at a nearby haberdashery to take shelter until the storm passes. While holed up in this haberdashery waiting out the blizzard, coincidences stop looking like coincidences, enemies become allies, secrets escape, and lots of living things get dead.”
Smash the trailer into your face as many times as you can before it’s inevitably taken down.
