Samuel L. Jackson Is Peak Samuel L. Jackson In First Hateful Eight Trailer
Oh, I’m sorry, did you think we’d reached peak Samuel L. Jackson when he quoted Ezekial 25-17 then shot a bunch of men in the face in Pulp Fiction? Or how about that time he delivered an earth-shattering monologue about ice and nature and the duality of man, only to get eaten by a giant shark seconds later in Deep Blue Sea, or that other time he’d had enough of the mother f–king snakes on that mother f–king plane? Did you think we’d reached peak SLJ then?
If so, you were totally wrong, because peak Samuel L. Jackson has officially been reached via the first trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight, which finds Jackson playing a mustachioed post-Civil War era bounty hunter who literally opens the trailer sitting on a pile of dead bodies:
“Move a little strange, you gonna get a bullet,” he later tells the other members of the Eight—who include “The Hangman” (Kurt Russell) and “The Prisoner” (Jennifer Jason Leigh). “Not a warning, not a question, a bullet.”
Sounds fair enough to me. Who needs Captain America: Civil War when you have eight psychopaths tormenting each other in 70mm format during a blizzard?
The Hateful Eight takes aim at theatres this Christmas.
