It seems like only yesterday that a script leak blunder saw Quentin Tarantino shelf his upcoming 8th movie as a punishment for the breaking of his cone of secrecy. One table read, a kick ass poster and a handful of sneaky details later, we finally have a trailer for The Hateful Eight. Man, imagine if it was total garbage, how heartbreaking would that be?

If I had to pick one grotesquely obtuse metaphor to describe this year’s glamorous San Diego Comic Con, I’m pretty sure it would be moustachioed cowboy supernova that fuses hydrogen and glitter to make molten rainbows and vomits neurological organs.
Yeah, yeah I think that just about does it.
This was always going to be a wild card year, what with the absence of a Marvel presence save for half a dozen aimless cosplayers. But that wild card turned into a royal flush all too easily. We’ve picked out some of the best bits at this year’s SDCC, from teasers to trailers to screaming jokers. Here’s what we loved, in no particular order: Continue reading Suicide Squad, Warcraft and Ennio Morricone: Top 10 Moments from SDCC 2015
Quentin Tarantino strikes me as a ballsy kind of guy. That’s the impression I get from his movies at least. In recent years he’s taken a samurai sword to realistic tellings of World War 2 and American slavery, creating brutally cartoonish worlds populated with mad heroes and warped monsters alike. That’s all well and good, but it takes someone with real cojones to release a teaser trailer the day after a Star Wars trailer AND a Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice teaser. You heard me right.
Screenrant is reporting that the Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs creator has released the first real look at his latest project The Hateful Eight. The quasi-Western had its fair share of bumps in the road, with Tarantino postponing release after scripts had been circulated without his knowing. After that, hopes were lifted with a live read-through of the same script. Not long after that the project was back in business. Here’s a look at the teaser, courtesy of Screenrant:
Well it wasn’t the longest or most descriptive thing in the world, but you’ve got to respect it all the same. No one is saying that Tarantino isn’t a Hollywood heavy hitter, but people can only focus on so many things at once and trying to promote your teaser while Harrison Ford is saying “Chewie, we’re home” and bat cowls are fading in to ominous chords. Why give yourself the competition?
It could very well be that this was always going to be the time when the teaser would be released and all the other surprise reveals just happened to fall around it, so instead of rescheduling they stuck to their six shooters and released the teaser on time. Could this mean that more material will be coming our way soon? Are we on a strict regiment of The Hateful Eight news now? We can’t be sure for the moment, but it sure is nice to have a teaser for it. Even though the teaser tells us very little, it tells us enough to keep us confident.
It’s no secret that Quentin Tarantino likes to re-use a lot of the actors he’s used in previous films of his career. And why not? He’s gotten some pretty fantastic performances out of them in the past, so I can’t see why he wouldn’t want. Not only that, I’m sure the same actors would be just as excited to come back and work with the director again. Well along with a main cast of regulars and irregulars and irregulars, Screenrant has reported that a supporting cast list has also been released – and it has a similar high-school reunion feel to it.
There’s no word on who the supporting actors will be playing in the western that will see bounty hunters Kurt Russel and Samuel L Jackson run into each-other on a wintry Wyoming road, only to set a dangerous rolling stone set in motion. But the majority of them are old Tarantino favourites nonetheless. Here’s the list of actors and the previous QT films they’ve can be seen in:
Zoë Bell (Kill Bill Vol. 1 & 2)
James Parks (Kill Bill Vol. 1 & 2)
Dana Gourrier (Django Unchained)
Keith Jefferson (Django Unchained)
Lee Horsley (Django Unchained)
Craig Stark (Django Unchained)
Belinda Owino (Django Unchained)
In case the name Zoë Bell isn’t brining a face to mind, it’s because Bell is a stunt-actor who worked as Uma Thurman’s double on the Kill Bill double. Final name Gene Jones doesn’t have a Tarantino flick to his name but he has starred in No Country for Old Men and Oz the Great and Powerful.
As supporting casts go it’s dependable and rock-solid, so hopefully we’ll see an awesome performance from all of them. Lord knows they’ve got enough experience between them.
What think you of the supporting cast for Hateful Eight? Any other familiar Tarantino names you would have liked to see?
