Jennifer is a bright-eyed Midwestern pure of heart girl. [She] is a clone who was naïve, she didn’t know she was a clone, and was being monitored by her boyfriend.

The first real Hateful Eight trailer has arrived

After what feels like years of anticipation—because this thing has been years in the making—the Weinstein Co. has finally released the first real trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight.

Jackson is talking tough, Tim Roth is charming and unhinged, Michael Madsen is a snake in the grass, Jennifer Jason Leigh indulges in some rather literal gallows humor, and Walton Goggins is having a rip-roarin’, pistol-shootin’ good time. But the real stars of the trailer are Kurt Russell’s Grizzly Adams mutton chops, which are absolutely glorious.
