In the dead of a Wyoming winter, a bounty hunter and his prisoner find shelter in a cabin currently inhabited by a collection of nefarious characters.
The opening credit sequence, which begins with a close-up of a crucifix and ends after the producer's credit, is one unbroken shot lasting around three minutes and forty seconds.
Major Marquis Warren:
Got room for one more?
Warren says that he and Smithers fought against each other during the Civil War at the Battle of Baton Rouge. The battle took place in 1862, African-American troops first saw combat in 1863.
The roadshow version of the film opens with a faux-vintage Weinstein Company logo, in flat white-on-blue with a very 70s font along with a "Cinerama" logo. The first few credits appear in the same font as the logo's before switching to Tarantino's usual Friz Quadrata. The standard release opens with only the normal Weinstein Company logo before going directly into the sweeping Panavision shots.
The 70mm Roadshow release version of 'The Hateful Eight' contains after the overture exclusive Weinstein Company logos followed by a Cinerama logo before the film begins. Later in the film after Oswaldo Mobray breaks up a fight between Marquis Warren and Sandy Smithers, the Roadshow version contains additional footage involving an exchange between John Ruth and Bob over a "half-plucked chicken", further dialogue between Sandy Smithers and Chris Mannix about Marquis Warren's incineration of Wellenbeck's Prisoner of War camp, and a brief moment in which Marquis Warren notices a jelly bean on the floor as he's refilling his coffee mug. The digital theatrical release version simply fades into to the scene where John Ruth expresses concern over the group's loyalty to Daisy Domergue.
