Set 'six or eight or twelve years' after the Civil War, The Hateful Eight follows bounty hunter John Ruth (Kurt Russell) and his fugitive Daisy Domergue (Jennifer Jason Leigh), who's being taken to town to be hanged. The teaser shows them hurtling through the Wyoming winterscape in a stagecoach as they encounter two strangers: Major Marquis Warren (Samuel L. Jackson), a union soldier-turned-bounty hunter, and Chris Mannix (Walton Goggins), a Southern renegade who insists he's the new sheriff in town.

A blizzard soon overtakes their stagecoach on a mountainside stopover, where they meet a handful of dangerous characters who share a deadly connection.

"One of them fellas is not what he says he is."

The Weinstein Co. Western, written and directed by Quentin Tarantino, also stars Channing Tatum and Bruce Dern.

The Hateful Eight marks Tarantino's eighth feature and the follow-up to Django Unchained.
