EW already followed up the reveal of its Hateful Eight cover with a bunch of character photos earlier today, but the outlet still has more to share from Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming Western. This new batch of images teases what the characters are up to while they’re holed up at Minnie’s Haberdashery during the blizzard. Here’s what Michael Madsen had to say about the group dynamic:
“It’s one of those pictures where nobody really knows who anyone really is. It’s kind of a masquerade party.”
Check out all the new The Hateful Eight pictures featuring Madsen, Kurt Russell, Samuel L. Jackson, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Tim Roth, Walton Goggins and Bruce Dern for yourself below. The film is expected to hit theaters later this year.
Here’s the official synopsis for The Hateful Eight:
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 (Russell) and his fugitive Daisy Domergue (Leigh), 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 (Jackson), a black former union soldier turned infamous bounty hunter, and Chris Mannix (Goggins), 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 (Bichir), who’s taking care of Minnie’s while she’s visiting her mother, is holed up with Oswaldo Mobray (Roth), the hangman of Red Rock, cow-puncher Joe Gage (Madsen), and Confederate General Sanford Smithers (Dern). As the storm overtakes the mountainside stopover, our eight travelers come to learn they may not make it to Red Rock after all…
