One can never prepare for what will come from the layered mind of Quentin Tarantino. In his newest film, ‘The Hateful Eight,’ we travel back to the period just after the Civil War, but of course, this isn’t your history class period movie. Check out a trailer!

“Eight strangers, one deadly connection.” That’s the premise of Hateful Eight, the upcoming Quentin Tarantino film, which will hit theaters on Dec. 25, 2015. The cast boasts a ton of A-listers, including Samuel L. Jackson, Tim Roth and Michael Madsen. Also, making his Tarantino debut, Channing Tatum will appear in the flick (though is sadly missing from this trailer).

The film, which is equal parts snow and blood, will also star Michael Madsen and Bruce Dern, both Tarantino vets, along with Jennifer Jason Leigh. The movie will be Tarantino’s eighth (which coincides nicely with the title, don’t ya think?) and looks to be perhaps his most stylistic yet. Check out an official synopsis below:

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. Losing their lead on the blizzard, Ruth, Domergue, Warren and Mannix seek refuge at Minnie’s Haberdashery, a stagecoach stopover on a mountain pass. When they arrive at Minnie’s, they are greeted not by the proprietor but by four unfamiliar faces. Bob, who’s taking care of Minnie’s while she’s visiting her mother, is holed up with Oswaldo Mobray, the hangman of Red Rock, cow-puncher Joe Gage, and Confederate General Sanford Smithers. As the storm overtakes the mountainside stopover, our eight travelers come to learn they may not make it to Red Rock after all…

What do you think of this insane trailer? Are you excited for Hateful Eight?
