We Don’t Hate The Poster For Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Hateful Eight’

But we have a few questions.

Oh, Quentin Tarantino, consider our chain thoroughly yanked. The director’s saga with “The Hateful Eight” is a long and storied one. First, the script leaked and QT was like uh-uh. No way. No! Then he was like, uh, maybe. Maybe I’ll make this movie.

As of last weekend, yes, Tarantino is making the movie. And as of today, we have a poster.

This gives us a few answers (hello, 2015 release date and 70mm film shooting), but also raises a few questions. We love the minimalist design of the thing, but what, exactly, is bleeding? The blood begins at the front horse and gets more severe at the wagon — should we be concerned about a hoof injury? Do we need to pull this rig over and check the team?

Is the wagon also bleeding? Is this a tale of a sentient wagon? Who would want to hurt this wagon, and why?
