The Hateful Eight (18)
Set in the US shortly after the Civil War, the film follows John “The Hangman” Ruth (Russell), who is trekking through a Wyoming blizzard with his victim (1980s icon Jennifer Jason Leigh as Daisy Domergue), on her way to be hanged. Meeting bounty hunter Major Marquis Warren (Jackson) and alleged sheriff Chris Mannix (Walton Goggins) en route, they take shelter, where they meet the four remaining shady characters. From there, as you might imagine, things get messy, shots get fired and a whole lot of not-so-innocent blood gets spilled.
