The teaser clip hints that the movie will be full of the director's usual bloodshed-heavy scenes

Credit: Amanda Edwards/WireImage first official trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight has been released – and while it doesn’t show much, viewers will certainly be in for plenty of bloodshed.

The clip sets the stage for the movie, explaining that eight strangers, who were stranded together by a blizzard, all share a “deadly connection.” The film takes place “on the edge of the American frontier, some time after the Civil War.”

The trailer leaves much to the imagination, but does show us a snowy landscape and lots of bloody graphics, as well as descriptions of the eight characters the film will focus on.

The movie – slated to be released later this year – stars Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Walton Goggins, Demian Bichir, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen and Bruce Dern.
