The road for Quentin Tarantino’s latest film has been a rocky one. The 52-year director almost scrapped the entire project when the script leaked online last year. At one point he explored the option of publishing it as a novel instead of a feature film. After a live reading of the leaked script in April, he decided to go ahead but tweak it and have a different ending.

The Hateful Eight centers on a group of eight grizzled, gun-toting outlaws who have been forced to take refuge in the same tiny shack by a vicious blizzard. Favorite stalwarts Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Walton Goggins, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, and Bruce Dern all join forces with Tarantino again. New to Quentin’s universe are Jennifer Jason Leigh, Demian Bichir, and Channing Tatum. The latter makes a rumored cameo appearance.

The Hateful Eight treks into selected theaters on Christmas Day and nationwide on January 8. Check out the first trailer below.

The Hateful Eight Movie Synopsis

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…

Dominic Cooper Has Reasonable Doubts In New Trailer

In: Donovan, Movies

Typically a January release date signals a lack of confidence from the movie studio. After watching the first trailer for Reasonable Doubt, I think it has the potential to be a small sleeper hit. Hopefully, all the surprising twists and turns in this game of cat and mouse weren’t all revealed in the clip.

Up-and-coming District Attorney Mitch Brockden (Dominic Cooper) commits a fatal hit-and-run and feels compelled to throw the case against the accused criminal found with the body and blamed for the crime. Following the trial, Mitch’s worst fears come true when he realizes that he acquitted a guilty man, and he soon finds himself on the hunt for the killer before more victims pile up.

Reasonable Doubt lands in theaters January 17 and also stars Gloria Reuben and Samuel L. Jackson. Check out the trailer below.

The first Avenger is back. Marvel Comics just unleashed the first trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Chris Evans and his bulging biceps return for a second go round as the titular superhero. This time he’s joined by Scarlet Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson, Robert Redford and Sebastian Stan who returns as the Winter Soldier. We also see the first glimpse of Anthony Mackie as the Falcon.

The sequel takes place after Steve Rogers helped save New York City in The Avengers. He’s now living in Washington, DC trying to adjust to modern life after being unearthed from a 70-year icy sleep. I know I’d be cranky ;)

Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, The Winter Soldier also stars Emily VanCamp, Cobie Smulders, Frank Grillo and Hayley Atwell. It comes out April 4, 2014. I wasn’t completely in love with the first film, but this one looks really good. Check out the spankin’ new trailer below.

Even though both Chris Brown and Miley Cyrus recently topped a survey naming them as the worst celebrity role models, it appears some parents are angrier with Samuel L. Jackson. At least they are in this Funny or Die clip.

Apparently, if Jackson is in a film, you probably shouldn’t let little ones watch them. His roles in Shaft, Unbreakable, Jungle Fever and several more films have inspired children to behave badly and quote age-inappropriate dialogue. Watch parents yell, “F*ck you, Samuel L. Jackson!” in the video below.

Josh Brolin Is Pretty Damn Fine In Oldboy Trailer

In: Donovan, Movies

This looks so good and not just because Josh Brolin looks sexy as hell. I can’t believe it’s from Spike Lee. It’s definitely not his usual type of joint that examines race relations or political issues. Apparently, it’s a remake of the 2003 South Korean cult film, Oldboy.

“This is the first time I am doing something like this, so it’s interesting how you can stay true to the essence of the original source material, but make it something different, and I know that’s what we are going to do with this one.” – Spike Lee

The film stars Josh Brolin as Joe Doucett who is kept imprisoned for 20 years in solitary confinement without any acknowledgement as to why he’s being held captive. During his imprisonment he discovers his wife has been killed. When he’s surprisingly released, he goes on a mission to find the person responsible for his imprisonment and his daughter. On his quest, he discovers that his life is still caught in conspiracy and torment. Check out the red band trailer below. Oldboy hits theaters on October 25.

As promised, after The Oscars last night Jimmy Kimmel debuted his Movie: The Movie: 2V trailer and in case you missed it, we’ve got it for you to check out below. The hilarious movie parody video features 21 celebrities and tells the epic story of a world threatened by sexy vampires, sexy zombies, sexy mummies, and sexy leprechauns.

The cast includes: Rachel Weisz, Armie Hammer, Topher Grace, Jessica Chastain, Jude Law, Gerard Butler, Bryan Cranston, John Krasinski, Oprah Winfrey, Bradley Cooper, Kerry Washington, Guillermo Rodriguez, Jason Schwartzman, Chris Rock, Salma Hayek, Bruno Mars, Amanda Seyfried, Channing Tatum, Samuel L. Jackson, Wolf Blitzer, and even Matt Damon.

Kimmel plays the man who leads the charge of people who fight to stop the Sexpocalypse. Some of my favorite moments include when Kimmel calls Oprah (who plays the president) and she hangs up on him, when Matt Damon is told to pretend he’s eating a big sandwich but they really just want him to look like he’s giving head, and when Kimmel shouts, “Release the Tatum!” and a giant Channing Tatum comes out that fights the sexy monsters by thrusting from his manhood. Watch the epic and hilarious video below.

A while back, Ellen DeGeneres and Jimmy Kimmel competed in a “Nice Off“, battle each other with compliments rather than insults. It you haven’t seen it yet, you should. Now, two other Hollywood stars have battled it out, but this time it’s a “Sad Off.”

Both Anne Hathaway and Samuel L. Jackson have “sad” movies coming out this winter. Hathaway stars in Les Miserables, while Jackson stars in Django Unchained. Both have sad stories, but which is sadder? Both Hathaway and Jackson think their movies are the saddest and will go to great lengths to prove it too each other in this hilarious new Funny or Die video.

Christmas gets competitive in this must-see showdown between Hathaway and Jackson. “It’s a sad-off, mother f*cker,” says Anne as she challenges Samuel. Seriously, there are some really good lines in this video and I laughed quite a bit. Enjoy the video below!

Next Sunday, July 1, Samuel L. Jackson will front the 2012 BET Awards as the evening’s host. The night will be full of stars from the presenters to the musical performances. D’Angelo is set to make a triumphant return to the stage as well as a striking performance from Cissy Houston. Young Money’s first lady of hip hop, Nicki Minaj will also be taking the stage, but she better watch out for her job because it looks like the evening’s host may be coming for her job.

In a new promo released to promote the night, Samuel L. Jackson dons a signature pink wig to look like Nicki Minaj as he raps the hook to the Roman Reloaded track, “Beez In The Trap.” HILARIOUS! Let’s hope that Nicki performs the track and that Samuel makes a cameo. Wouldn’t that be unreal? Check Samuel L. Jackson’s rapping skills in the video promo below. Will you be checking out the 2012 BET Awards when they air on July 1? Let us know in the comments!

Watch Samuel L. Jackson rap “Beez In The Trap” after the jump.
