Tarantino's 'Hateful Eight' Trailer Description

13 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, we reported that fans who buy a Sin City: A Dame to Kill For ticket will be the first to see a teaser trailer for Quentin Tarantino's upcoming Western The Hateful Eight. The catch is, it will not be debuting online. We know that this trailer won't contain any actual footage, since production hasn't even started yet, but Collider has a description of this teaser, which confirms the Western is being shot in 70Mm Super CinemaScope.

The story is set after the Civil War in Wyoming, and centers on a group of stagecoach passengers who get stranded together during a blizzard, with a majority of the story taking place in a dive bar. The trailer opens in typical Western fashion, with an unidentified ballad and title cards that set up these strangers being trapped together, followed by, "They soon discovered they shared a deadly connection."

Movie Review – Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014)

15 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, 2014.

Directed by Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller.

Starring Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Josh Brolin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson, Eva Green, Powers Boothe, Ray Liotta, Dennis Haysbert, Christopher Meloni, Jeremy Piven, Jaime King, Christopher Lloyd, Juno Temple, Lady Gaga, Stacy Keach and Jamie Chung.

Synopsis:

Some of Sin City’s most hard-boiled citizens cross paths with a few of its more reviled inhabitants.

It’s been nearly ten years since we last visited Basin City and some feel that the decade absence has dampened a lot of the hype and interest in its sequel, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. But the directing team of Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller were not going to let that stop them as they bring perhaps the most popular book from the Sin City cannon to the big screen with some old faces, some new »

'Hateful Eight' teaser to play in theaters before 'Sin City 2'

15 August 2014 11:25 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

If you’re making a movie about a rugged 19th-century stagecoach adventure, you’re presumably familiar with the idiom “putting the cart before the horse.” But Quentin Tarantino has always operated outside convention. So it’s oddly appropriate that a teaser trailer for his next movie, The Hateful Eight—a film that doesn’t even go into production until early 2015—will debut in theaters next weekend before screenings of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.

Though The Weinstein Company—which is distributing both films—declined to comment, sources close to the production tell EW that reports of a theater-only teaser are correct. »

Quentin Tarantino's Hateful Eight trailer screening with Sin City 2

15 August 2014 1:37 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight will release its first trailer ahead of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For screenings.

The trailer will not be receiving an official online release alongside the debut, reports Slash Film.

It is unknown what the trailer will show, as the film is yet to begin shooting.

Tarantino cancelled his plans for The Hateful Eight after the script was leaked online.

He later revived the western project following a live script reading at San Diego Comic-Con.

The Hateful Eight concerns an ill-matched group of people trapped in a remote saloon by a blizzard.

Bruce Dern, Walton Goggins, Samuel L Jackson, Michael Madsen and Kurt Russell are believed to be attached to the film.

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For will be released on August 22. »

The Hateful Eight trailer to premiere in front of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For

14 August 2014 11:09 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

When the script leaked for Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight earlier this year, the director halted production on the Western and threatened to not make the film at all. Slowly, after a successful live reading in Los Angeles, he revived the project and recently announced that it will begin filming later this year for release in 2015. There’s already a poster for the film, and now we’re hearing that there will soon be a teaser trailer for it as well.

According to /Film, the trailer will consist mostly of title cards, and debut in front of Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s upcoming film Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. Furthermore, the trailer will only appear in front of the Sin City sequel and won’t be available online any time soon.

So the question now is, are you excited enough to see the trailer for The Hateful Eight »

Tarantino's 'Hateful Eight' will have a trailer attached to 'Sin City 2' in theaters only

14 August 2014 4:25 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

What is Quentin Tarantino up to? Man, I would love it if he's been sneaking around and shooting a movie without telling anyone. I don't think that's what happened… but who knows? I think it's far more likely that what we've heard is correct. The shoot will happen in the spring, and we can count on seeing the film in time for the holiday season in 2015. But let's pretend for a moment. After all, word is breaking that The Weinstein Company will have a nearly two-minute-long trailer for "The Hateful 8" attached to the front of "Sin City 2" when it hits theaters next week. It appears the plan is not to officially put it online. That means someone will bootleg it on Friday, The Weinstein Company will chase it around trying to take it down for two days, and we'll have a high-quality official version on Monday morning by the latest. »

‘Sin City 2′ To Launch With Tarantino ‘Hateful Eight’ Teaser

14 August 2014 4:08 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

When Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez get together, mischief always ensues. I’ve confirmed that although Tarantino hasn’t started shooting the ensemble Western The Hateful Eight, he has managed to shoot a teaser trailer that will precede his pal Rodriguez’s Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. Tarantino confirmed during an appearance at San Diego Comic-Con that he would go ahead with his Western, which he revealed to Deadline in January he would scrap because the agents of one of a handful of actors he gave the script to had leaked it. It created a drama that included a lawsuit, a killer live reading staged for charity, and then finally a deal with The Weinstein Company to giddyap in early 2015 start for the movie that will star Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Madsen, Bruce Dern, Kurt Russell and others.

The Hateful Eight Trailer Could Hit Theaters Next Week

14 August 2014 3:11 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Hateful Eight, Quentin Tarantino’s new film, has not even begun shooting yet, but it already has a poster promising a 2015 release, and by next week, the anticipated western could also have a trailer to go with it as well. According to several reports, the preview could be attached to Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, which comes out next Friday.

The Alberta Film Ratings board updated their page recently with a listing for The Hateful Eight. According to the page, the trailer runs one minute and forty seconds. Suspiciously, the same board gave the trailer a G rating, which means it could be shown in front of family films. (This could be an error, however, since other adult-oriented films on the page also have G ratings next to the title.)

Meanwhile, /Film has been in touch with several theatre employees, who have seen information that suggests »

Tarantino's 'Hateful Eight' Trailer to Debut Only in Theaters with 'Sin City 2'?

14 August 2014 2:59 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

We've had multiple reports that director Quentin Tarantino will start shooting his revenge Western The Hateful Eight next year, with the first poster that debuted last month confirming a 2015 release date. Even though production is still months away, a new report has surfaced that claims fans will see the first teaser trailer for The Hateful Eight attached to prints of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.

/Film discovered this image on an exhibitor section of The Weinstein Company's website, which clearly states that The Hateful Eight trailer will be shown with Sin City 2.

However, that site also indicates that this trailer will only be shown in theaters, and will not be released online. They also received numerous tips from movie theater employees, who revealed that they had been sent information about the trailer that will be enclosed with Dcp distribution of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, »

Hateful Eight Teaser Will Launch With Sin City 2

14 August 2014 2:11 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

For a film that looked as though it might never happen, Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight is certainly showing healthy signs of life, including a poster in the latest Empire. Now the director is taking the next step in the promotional department, attaching a mysterious teaser trailer to friend Robert Rodriguez’ latest, Sin City: A Dame To Kill For.Exactly what this teaser will comprise is unclear, since Tarantino hasn’t actually started shooting the film yet. We know that the likes of Kurt Russell, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Bruce Dern, Walton Goggins and (naturally) Samuel L. Jackson are aboard, but cinema audiences will have to wait and see if any of them actually show up in the teaser. From the sounds of it, this might be a cinema-only event, with a Weinstein Company distribution information page stating that it won’t show up online. Of course, an outcry »

Iggy Azalea, Rita Ora Put Bite on Bill in New Black Widow Video (watch!)

Iggy Azalea today (Aug. 13). released her big production video for “Black Widow,” featuring UK Singer Rita Ora, and it pretty much follows the script of earlier reports. Its a take off on Quentin Tarantino’s “Kill Bill” movies. The opening scene is set in a diner with Iggy working behind the counter and Rita on the arm of actor Michael Madsen. He’s a loud-mouthed gangster type, more or less reprising his role as Budd, aka Sidewinder from the movie. Bud is a former Deadly Viper Assassin. He is targeted to die by the Bride, played by Uma Thurman, as part of her revenge killing spree. ...Read More »

The music video for Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora's catchy duet "Black Widow" is finally here!

Iggy Azalea dropped the video for her new single, "Black Widow," on Wednesday, and in it, she and Rita Ora - who lends vocals to the song - don their best skintight bodysuits to take down an evil, abusive boyfriend played expertly by Michael Madsen.
