This week saw both the UK and US premieres of Quentin Tarantino's upcoming Western 'The Hateful Eight', and it's safe to say it's all becoming too real for us now. The film will be in actual theaters on Christmas Day, almost three years since he announced it.

It's a movie about bounty hunters, bad weather and betrayal and it sure has an all-star cast. In fact, the only female member of the main cast, Jennifer Jason Leigh, has just been announced as a nominee for Best Supporting Actress at the 2016 Golden Globes, with Tarantino as the only other member of the crew to get a nod for the film as he becomes a contender for writing the Best Screenplay.

For Leigh, there's a good reason both of them have been marked for the Golden Globes. 'No-one writes women the way [Quentin Tarantino] does', she explained, adding that he has a habit of writing 'memorable' dialogue and bringing out the best in his actors. 'You want to give him 110%, or whatever you have to give, you want to give it to him and everybody on the crew feels the same way.'

Another person Leigh had a lot of praise for was co-star Kurt Russell, to whom she was chained for the majority of the movie; him playing bounty hunter John Ruth and her playing his fugitive Daisy Domergue. 'He's a great puncher. I get punched a lot by him and I never was afraid', she reveals. 'He really knows how to throw a punch; I knew I'd never actually get hurt.'

The film also stars Samuel L. Jackson, Walton Goggins, Demián Bichir, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen and Bruce Dern who make up the rest of the Hateful Eight, while Channing Tatum also makes an appearance as a character named Jody.
