Albeit it just a rumor, and a rumor for a trailer nonetheless, this could potentially be massive news. Although the film hasn't even entered any stage production, it already has a poster and a general cast filled with Tarantino alumni.
/Film have done some digging, and discovered what appears to be rather reliable information that a teaser trailer is coming, and soon. Several reports say that [The Hateful Eight](movie:1216087) trailer release is set for next week, attached to Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. Trouble is, that’s probably the only place you’ll be able to see it for a while.
Tarantino is good buds with Sin City: A Dame to Kill For director Robert Rodriguez, so it isn't a far fetched idea. Couple this with the alleged multiple theater employees contacting the website to confirm they’ve been sent information that the trailer will be enclosed with DCP distribution of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For and the picture below, found on the Weinstein Company page with details for distributors stating:
Doesn't seem so far fetched now, huh ? As if we needed another reason to go see Sin City. Furthermore, that page says the trailer will be available packaged with the Sin City: A Dame to Kill For feature only, and that it will not be online. A nice idea, but in this day and age it will be a challenge to keep such material off the internet.
So what could this trailer be I hear you ask ? Well, quite possibly it could be audio from the recent live stage reading held by Tarantino and cast members. Alternatively, it could be a soundtrack with a list of confirmed names for the films cast. Either way, I hope it's true and I am thoroughly intrigued to discover the truth.
Check out the short film synopsis below;
The Hateful Eight follows the steadily ratcheting tension that develops after a blizzard diverts a stagecoach from its route, and traps a pitiless and mistrustful group which includes a competing pair of bounty hunters, a renegade Confederate soldier, and a female prisoner in a saloon in the middle of nowhere.
Confirmed cast members so far are Tarantino regulars, Bruce Dern, Walton Goggins, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Madsen, and Kurt Russell.
