Get ready for some blood in the snow. Quentin Taratino's eighth film “The Hateful Eight” is rolling in at Christmas, having wrangled in Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Samuel L. Jackson, Walton Goggins, Channing Tatum and Bruce Dern for the Western adventure.
The story takes place a handful of years after the Civil War.
“Got room for one more?” asks Jackson's Marquis Warren, an ex-Union soldier-turned-bounty hunter to Russell's hanging-happy John Ruth in his stagecoach.
Their ride is sidelined into the mountains, where Marquis, John and John's captured outlaw Daisy (Leigh) meet up with a crew that purportedly will round out the titular Eight.
As previously reported, composer Ennio Morricone was roped into writing the music, making it his first Western score in 40 years.
The flick, which is the follow-up to Tarantino's last “Django Unchained,” heads to theaters in 70mm on Dec. 25, and goes wide in digital on Jan. 8.
