The trailer for the 8th film from two-time Oscar winning director Quentin Tarantino is here and it’s a pretty great looking two and half minutes. With vivid cinematography from Robert Richardson (Natural Born Killers, Kill Bill Vol. 1 & 2) and a stellar cast of Oscar nominees like Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction), Bruce Dern (Nebraska) and Tim Roth (Rob Roy) with Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Michael Madsen and Walton Googins, the film centers around Russell’s character, The Hangman, holding up in a cabin with his wanted dead or alive captive Daisy Domergue (Leigh) in the face of some mighty questionable gentlemen.
The trailer gives us our first look at the film and its potential Oscar prospects. Right off the bat, Jackson and Russell have the lion’s share of dialogue. Tim Roth seems to be playing a slightly foppish version of Christoph Waltz in Inglourious Basterds and Jennifer Jason Leigh, the lone female of this motley band of marauders, has nary a word to say but provides the trailer’s most humorous sight gag.
