Cannes gets peek at Hateful Eight, Macbeth, Carol and more

15 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Harvey Weinstein offered a peek at Quentin Tarantino's film The Hateful Eight at the Cannes Film Festival on Thursday as the movie mogul previewed the Weinstein Co.'s upcoming slate.

The annual presentation to media and industry members featured a handful of films that will premiere at Cannes in the coming days: Todd Haynes' 1950s drama Carol and a Macbeth adaption with Michael Fassbender andMarion Cotillard. One of the Cannes festival jury members, Jake Gyllenhaal, was also on hand to preview his boxing drama with director Antoine FuquaSouthpaw.

But probably the most anticipated, previously unseen film among the Weinstein Co.'s offerings was a two-minute trailer of Tarantino's latest. In the footage, the snowy, gun-blazing Western evoked Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs in its gathering of a group of tough characters. Its large cast includes a number of familiar Tarantino players: Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Tim Roth, »

Check Out New Photos from Quentin Tarantino's Hateful Eight

10 May 2015 1:21 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

After a turbulent period of stolen screenplays and regrettable lawsuits last year, Quentin Tarantino decided to eschew his frustrations and finally film his mammoth screenplay for The Hateful Eight, a purportedly brutal and bloody western about a coterie of strangers who tell each other stories and kill stuff, like The Canterbury Tales but with more swearing. The film’s colossal cast includes Samuel L. Jackson as Major Marquis Warren, "The Bounty Hunter"; Kurt Russell as John Ruth, "The Hangman"; Jennifer Jason Leigh as Daisy Domergue, "The Prisoner"; Walton Goggins as Chris Mannix, "The Sheriff"; Demáin Bichir as Bob, "The Mexican"; Tim Roth as Oswaldo Mobray, "The Little Man"; Bruce Dern as General Sanford Smithers, "The Confederate"; and Michael Madsen as Joe Gage, "The Cow Puncher." Channing Tatum, James Parks, and Zoë Bell will also make appearances. The film's teaser came out illegally a few months ago, then legally last month, »

First Look at Quentin Tarantino's 'The Hateful Eight' Wins the Mustache Contest

8 May 2015 4:48 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Entertainment Weekly has released the cover for their next issue, which boasts the world's first official look at Quentin Tarantino's next movie, The Hateful Eight. And not only do we get to see a three of the film's eight badasses, but the cover also promises it's the "meanest, grittiest, and deadliest movie of the year." Normally we'd just chalk that up to marketing speak, but since this is Tarantino we're talking about, we won't be surprised in the slightest if it were true. And we actually kind of hope it is, especially if it means seeing this ridiculous cast completely cut loose: Samuel L. Jackson Jennifer Jason Leigh Kurt Russell Tim Roth Michael Madsen Walton Goggins Bruce Dern Demián Bichir James Parks Zoe Bell As...

First The Hateful Eight Pictures Reveal Quentin Tarantino’s Fur-Covered Cast

8 May 2015 10:17 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Yesterday we got our first official look at three cast members in costume from Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming Western The Hateful Eight, and today the first images from the film reveal the entire lineup in all their bundled-up glory. The story takes place a few years after the Civil War and revolves around a group of traveling strangers who are forced to take refuge together at a bar when a snowstorm hits the Wyoming landscape. This being a Tarantino film and all, we can safely assume the characters don’t become best friends by the movie's end. These new images reveal the full “Hateful Eight”, and they are as follows: Kurt Russell as John Ruth, a “mean sonuvabitch” bounty hunter on his way to Red Rock with a murderous woman in tow. Samuel L. Jackson as Major Marquis Warren, a former Union officer who lives in the Wyoming mountains. Jennifer Jason Leigh as Daisy Domergue, »

First Images From The Hateful Eight Tease The Stacked Cast

8 May 2015 9:45 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

See Full Gallery Here

Yesterday brought our first look at The Hateful Eight via Entertainment Weekly’s cover, but now that the magazine has hit stands, seven new shots from the Quentin Tarantino-directed Western are available for your viewing pleasure.

Highlighted by the new images are stars Kurt Russell, Bruce Dern, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Michael Madsen and Samuel L. Jackson, all dressed up in some ridiculous outfits. The print edition of Entertainment Weekly also provided some further insights into the pic, with Jason Leigh saying of the relationship between her collared outlaw and Kurt Russell’s bounty hunter that the pair “are essentially the most dysfunctional couple since Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” If the two character are romantically involved, as hinted by the actress’ hand on Russell’s shoulder in the cover shot, it’s certainly easy to see how that could be the case.
