Famed director Quentin Tarantino has officially made plans to release the Hateful Eight trailer exclusively with Sin City 2. For now, you won’t see the official teaser any other way unless someone manages to sneak a video camera into the premiere of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.
If that’s what you’re planning on, don’t do it. Distributing a video camera recording of a motion picture is a crime, and Tarantino has faced enough problems with internet leaks.
A few months ago, the director who made himself famous with Pulp Fiction had become furious when the script for Hateful Eight, given only to a handful of people he trusted, was leaked over the internet. This betrayal of trust led him to abort making the movie. Eventually, he decided to go ahead with the infamous Western, and now, he plans to film it anyway.
While Westerns in cinema have suffered the same fate as pirate films prior to Johnny Depp’s take on the role, it’s obvious that there is still a demand for them. This fact is punctuated by Mel Brooks’ recent claim that Blazing Saddles was four of the best comedies ever made as previously reported by The Inquisitr.
It seems Quentin Tarantino decided that if people were that eager to read the script, they should be willing to pay to see it on the big screen. It has also been decided that the Hateful Eight trailer will only be seen if you pay to see Frank Miller’s Sin City 2, the sequel to a movie that Tarantino shared directing privileges on.
Before seeing the black, white, and red toned comeback for Jessica Alba, Bruce Willis, and Mickey Rourke, we will finally see our first glimpse of Tarantino at his gritty best.

Hateful Eight will star Western veteran Kurt Russell (Tombstone), Tarantino film veterans Samuel L. Jackson and Michael Madsen, Bruce Dern (Nebraska), and Amber Tamblyn (127 Hours). Production for the film is expected to begin in 2015, but you can catch the teaser trailer with the theatrical release of Sin City 2.
