Tarantino’s “The Hateful Eight” Gets A Trailer Even Though The Movie Hasn’t Even Been Filmed … and you have to pay to see it

Talk about a tease. How do you make a trailer for a film that you haven’t even begun to shoot? Well, if you’re Quentin Tarantino, you call your buddy Robert Rodriguez and arrange for a special sneak peek of the as-yet-unmade and almost cancelled The Hateful Eight to be tagged on to cinema showings of his film Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.

Rumour has it the trailer runs more than a minute and a half, which is a long time when you have no actual footage. Don’t expect too much from the trailer to “the 8th film from Quentin Tarantino” (really, is he the only one counting?) other than perhaps nifty soul music or a nod to Ennio Morricone (or perhaps not).

Tarantino probably deserves some sort of postmodern praise for getting people to talk about the trailer to an as yet non-existent film, and Rodriguez owes him a thanks because Tarantinies will probably go and see his rather awful-looking film just to catch Tarantino’s trailer.

Tarantino’s ensemble western – about a group of strangers taking shelter during a blizzard in a plot that sounds like part Stagecoach, part Key Largo – boasts a cast including Tarantino regulars Michael Madsen, Kurt Russell, Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Dern, Tim Roth. Production begins in early 2015.
