Official teaser for Quentin Tarantinos The Hateful Eight arrives: watch now

With production finally wrapped, the first teaser for Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight has been released online. Audiences originally caught sight of the teaser last year when it screened in front of Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, and as a result it sprung up across the web in a glut of bootlegged videos. And now we’ve an authorised version to pore over. Check it out below:

As teasers go, it holds back on the live-action footage and serves as a delightful promise of what’s to come later this year. Tarantino’s 8th film strikes in the same genre as his last outing Django Unchained, and this Western looks to contain even more treachery, duplicity and... well, all the things that typically happen in a Tarantino flick.

Set after the American Civil War, the story revolves around a group of strangers thrown together by fate during a snowy Wyoming winter and is jam-packed with A-list talent. The roster of gunslingers, bounty hunters and fugitives includes Samuel L. Jackson, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Kurt Russell, Tim Roth, Demian Bichir, Michael Madsen, Bruce Dern, Walter Goggins and Channing Tatum.

The Hateful Eight is expected to arrive later this year.
