The Hateful Eight, Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming western, showed up at this year’s Comic Con. Tarantino was there to promote it alongside Kurt Russell.
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 and his fugitive Daisy Domergue, 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, a black former union soldier turned infamous bounty hunter, and Chris Mannix, a southern renegade who claims to be the town’s new Sheriff.
The film also stars Samuel L. Jackson, Channing Tatum, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Walton Goggins, Demián Bichir, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen and Bruce Dern.
The Hateful Eight is expected to hit theaters November 13.

Btw… The great Ennio Morricone has signed to compose the score for the film:
This makes “Hateful Eight” Tarantino’s first film with an original score, and Morricone’s first western score in 40 years.
