hateful eight competition thatgrapejuice
One of 2015’s most critically acclaimed films, ‘The Hateful Eight’ (starring Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, and more) marks a continuation of excellence from celebrated filmmaker Quentin Tarantino.  A post-Civil War western mystery film, the flick tells the story of eight strangers seeking refuge from an unforgiving wintry storm in Wyoming.

Via official release:

Along the road, they encounter two strangers: Major Marquis Warren (Jackson), a black former union soldier turned infamous bounty hunter, and Chris Mannix (Goggins), a southern renegade who claims to be the town’s new Sheriff. Losing their lead on the blizzard, Ruth, Domergue, Warren and Mannix seek refuge at Minnie’s Haberdashery, a stagecoach stopover on a mountain pass. When they arrive at Minnie’s, they are greeted not by the proprietor but by four unfamiliar faces. Bob (Bichir), who’s taking care of Minnie’s while she’s visiting her mother, is holed up with Oswaldo Mobray (Roth), the hangman of Red Rock, cow-puncher Joe Gage (Madsen), and Confederate General Sanford Smithers (Dern). As the storm overtakes the mountainside stopover, our eight travelers come to learn they may not make it to Red Rock after all…
Now, after winning thumbs up from audiences worldwide, a ‘Best Original Score’ Academy Award win for Ennio Morricone, and garnering Academy Awards nominations for Leigh (‘Best Supporting Actress’) and Robert Richardson (‘Best Cinematography), That Grape Juice is inviting you to bring the ‘Hateful Eight’ home for your viewing pleasure.
