COMIC-CON NEWS: Quentin Tarantino Unveils the Teaser Poster for THE HATEFUL 8

Count this as reason #1,000,000 why I wish I was at Comic Con in San Diego right now. Filmmaker Quentin Tarantino waited until he was at one of the most notable festivals in the world to debut the teaser poster for his eagerly anticipated new film, THE HATEFUL 8. Probably so the entire audience can geek out appropriately. Well, allow me to geek out right now too, because I am uber psyched to see this film, and catch at least a slither of a trailer, stat. 

True to form, Tarantino's latest boasts badass characters played by some repeat Tarantino favorites, including Walton Goggins and Samuel L. Jackson, along with Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Demian Bechir. Learn more about it in the synopsis:

In THE HATEFUL EIGHT, 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 (Russell) and his fugitive Daisy Domergue (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 (Jackson), a black former union soldier turned infamous bounty hunter, and Chris Mannix (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 (Bichir), who’s taking care of Minnie’s while she’s visiting her mother, is holed up with Oswaldo Mobray (Roth), the hangman of Red Rock, cow-puncher Joe Gage (Madsen), and Confederate General Sanford Smithers (Dern). As the storm overtakes the mountainside stopover, our eight travelers come to learn they may not make it to Red Rock after all…

My body is ready...

THE HATEFUL 8 opens in limited release on December 25th, and nationwide on January 8th. I'll keeo you updated as I learn more.
