TARANTINO GOES WEST AND GOES VIRAL WITH HATEFUL 8 TRAILER

by James Murphy

HATEFUL EIGHT TRAILER RELEASED

QUENTIN TARANTINO is something of a cinematic legend. He reinvented independent cinema, breaking out with RESEVOIR DOGS in the early 1990s. The movie was violent in a new and shocking way but that very visceral quality propelled it to success. Tarantino himself was another personification of the American dream: the video store clerk, reborn as a pioneering filmmaker.

1994 saw PULP FICTION change the rules for structure and dialogue in film, whilst giving us an infectious soundtrack and reigniting the then dormant career of JOHN TRAVOLTA. 1997’s JACKIE BROWN was good, although it was a rare foray into adapting someone else’s work for Tarantino (the story was based on Elmore Leonard’s RUM PUNCH). KILL BILL volumes 1 and 2 managed to fuse QT’s visual and verbal sensibilities to the Kung-Fu genre, with old muse UMA THURMAN providing leading lady power.

In 2009, we got a more mature, literate and exciting brand of movie from the auteur, with INGLORIOUS BASTERDS. It was a wartime thriller mixed with black humor, gore, a love letter to cinema and a welcome showcase for the talents of CHRISTOPH WALTZ and MICHAEL FASSBENDER.

 

Then came DJANGO UNCHAINED: a western. And Quentin was at home in the genre. Because his latest, HATEFUL EIGHT is also based in the wild western genre. And it seems to bring out the best in the man, because the new trailer feels very much like a ‘greatest hits’ package, whilst also existing on its own terms as an impressive product.

 

We get:

i.) KURT RUSSELL: Career renaissance material, a la Travolta in PULP FICTION.

ii.) SAMUEL L JACKSON filling the screen

iii.) TIM ROTH and MICHAEL MADSEN: a RESEVOIR DOGS reunion! 

iv.) BLOOD AND SNOW: The unforgiving landscapes of DJANGO UNCHAINED meets the visual signatures of KILL BILL.

v.) AND SO MUCH MORE!

Expect critical acclaim and respectable Box Office numbers, despite it being a crowded season coming up and the film’s inevitably adult  emphasis. We will review the film on its release and keep you posted on its progress.
