It's been quite a week already for fans of Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight, with a new poster featuring Kurt Russell and Jennifer Jason Leigh arriving on Monday, and the first trailer debuting today. The one-sheet was believed to be the first in a series, and, sure enough, today we have two more posters, courtesy of Yahoo! Movies and IMDB. The posters feature Walton Goggins as Sheriff Chris Mannix and Demián Bichir as Bob.
Don't be surprised if we see posters featuring the last remaining four of The Hateful Eight, Samuel L. Jackson's Marquis Warren, Tim Roth's Oswaldo Mobray, Michael Madsen's Joe Gage and Bruce Dern's Sanford Smithers. Given the amount of profanity and violence one normally sees in a Quentin Tarantino film, don't be surprised if a red band trailer surfaces sometime in the near future. Until then, we'll just have to wait for the next posters to roll in.
Set six or eight or twelve years after the Civil War, a stagecoach hurtles through the wintry Wyoming landscape. The passengers, bounty hunter John Ruth (Kurt Russell) and his fugitive Daisy Domergue (Jennifer Jason Leigh), race towards the town of Red Rock where Ruth, known in these parts as "The Hangman," will bring Domergue to justice. Along the road, they encounter two strangers: Major Marquis Warren (Samuel L. Jackson), a black former union soldier turned infamous bounty hunter, and Chris Mannix (Walton Goggins), a southern renegade who claims to be the town's new Sheriff.
Losing their lead on the blizzard, Ruth, Domergue, Warren and Mannix seek refuge at Minnie's Haberdashery, a stagecoach stopover on a mountain pass. When they arrive at Minnie's, they are greeted not by the proprietor but by four unfamiliar faces. Bob (Demián Bichir), who's taking care of Minnie's while she's visiting her mother, is holed up with Oswaldo Mobray (Tim Roth), the hangman of Red Rock, cow-puncher Joe Gage (Michael Madsen), and Confederate General Sanford Smithers (Bruce Dern). As the storm overtakes the mountainside stopover, our eight travelers come to learn they may not make it to Red Rock after all.
The supporting cast includes Channing Tatum, James Remar, James Parks, Dana Michelle Gourrier, Zoe Bell, Gene Jones, Craig Stark and Belinda Owino. Quentin Tarantino also confirmed at SDCC that The Hateful Eight will be scored by legendary composer Ennio Morricone, which will be his first Western movie score in over 40 years. Which of these remaining characters would you like to see in the next poster? Chime in with your thoughts as we wait for more one-sheets from The Hateful Eight, in theaters Christmas Day.
