We live in a world where Quentin Tarantino almost didn’t release this movie. There wouldn’t have been a trailer for us to watch today. Instead we would have been talking about how our day is going or probably stuck in LA traffic. That stuff is less fun. Especially the LA traffic.

The first trailer for the almost un-released The Hateful Eight is here, and it’s mostly just quick establishing shots letting us know the basic gist of the story. And we don’t need much to go on beyond that anyway, as Tarantino movies come to life onscreen in their own unique way, and this is the perfect trailer to capture that.

The Hateful Eight hits select theaters on Christmas Day in glorious 70mm, and everywhere else on January 8th, 2016.
