Watch: New ‘Hateful Eight’ Trailer Offers More Guns, More Samuel L. Jackson Quips

A second trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s “The Hateful Eight” has been released in the midst of the director’s police boycott controversy.

The highly anticipated post-Civil War pic follows eight strangers who duke it out for one very wanted woman named Daisy Domergue (Jennifer Jason Leigh). The clip formally introduces the gang, which includes the bounty hunter (Samuel L. Jackson), the hangman (Kurt Russell), the Confederate (Bruce Dern), the sheriff (Walton Goggins), the Mexican (Demian Bichir), the little man (Tim Roth) and the cow puncher (Michael Madsen).

Footage also shows more guns, action and one-liners from Jackson. “Nobody said this job is supposed to be easy,” Russell tells Jackson. He replies, “Nobody said it’s supposed to be that hard neither.” The Weinstein Co. feature was written and directed by Tarantino.

Tarantino has ignited a national conversation with his recent comment about police violence. Tarantino spoke to the Los Angeles Times about the situation earlier this week.

“Instead of dealing with the incidents of police brutality that those people were bringing up, instead of examining the problem of police brutality in this country, better they single me out,” he said. “And their message is very clear. It’s to shut me down. It’s to discredit me. It is to intimidate me. It is to shut my mouth, and even more important than that, it is to send a message out to any other prominent person that might feel the need to join that side of the argument.”

“The Hateful Eight” bows in select theaters on Christmas Day and nationwide on Jan. 8, 2016.
