Fans of famed film director Quentin Tarantino are in a for a treat this month. The Hateful Eight, which follows a bounty hunter attempting to transport a prisoner across Wyoming in the late 1800's, is set to open in limited release on Christmas Day.

The western will premiere in a 70 mm film format in select theaters across the country. Following that limited engagement, the digital version will be widely released nationwide on January 8th.

Last week, producers released a new online trailer previewing the upcoming film.

The film stars an ensemble cast including Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen and Bruce Dern. In addition to last week's preview, two prior trailers have also been released to date.
