Christmas is almost upon us! That means: A new brooding Western from Quentin Tarantino, of course. The director's eighth film, "The Hateful Eight," takes place "six or eight or 12 years after the Civil War" and features a star-studded cast including bounty hunter John "the Hangman" Ruth (Kurt Russell) and his fugitive Daisy (Jennifer Jason Leigh). Also: Samuel L. Jackson makes a return to the Tarantino world as Major Marquis Warren, alongside Bruce Dern and Tim Roth. Will Quentin make a signature cameo appearance and will everyone instantly hate him for it? Your questions answered December 25 when the film makes its limited release in 70mm (or January 8 for its wide release).
