A myerious teaser trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s embattled new movie, The Hateful Eight, did surface online a while back, but it was missing one very important element . . . actual footage from the film. That’s not the case with this new trailer, which is packed to the gills with the behatted heroes and villains of Tarantino’s latest locked-room action drama. Everyone in the star-studded cast—Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Samuel L. Jackson, Walton Goggins, Demián Bichir, Michael Madsen, Tim Roth, and Bruce Dern—gets their moment, but it’s Jackson, by now a total pro when it comes to Tarantino dialogue, who steals the show.

The trailer is scored with a bit of anachronistic rock ’n’ roll, but don’t get used to that thumping beat. Tarantino announced at Comic-Con that, unlike most of his films, The Hateful Eight will have an original score written by master composer Ennio Morricone. After a lot of drama—most of it offscreenThe Hateful Eight will premiere on Christmas as part of a lavish “roadshow” rollout courtesy of Tarantino. (More info on that spectacular spectacle here.) In the meantime, you can start picking out your most quotable moment.
