The first trailer for director Quentin Tarantino's highly anticipated movie "The Hateful Eight" hit the web today. See it here, four months before the film debuts in theaters.

The film is a western, set in post-Civil War Wyoming. In it, a group of bounty hunters become embroiled in a dangerous game of deception as they wait out a blizzard, inside a cramped cabin.

The trailer, which runs about 2.5 minutes, reveals stars Samuel L. Jackson and Kurt Russell, as part of the film's ensemble. According to IMDB, other actors include Walton Goggins, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Tim Roth and Channing Tatum.

"The Hateful Eight" is Tarantino's first movie since 2012's "Django Unchained," which won two Academy Awards and grossed over $425 million worldwide, according to Box Office Mojo.
