The 8th film by Quentin Tarantino. Six or eight or twelve years after the Civil War, a stagecoach hurtles through the wintry Wyoming landscape. The passengers, bounty hunter John Ruth (Kurt Russell) and his fugitive Daisy Domergue (Jennifer Jason Leigh), race towards the town of Red Rock where Ruth, known in these parts as "The Hangman," will bring Domergue to justice. Along the road, they encounter two strangers: Major Marquis Warren (Samuel L. Jackson), a black former union soldier turned infamous bounty hunter, and Chris Mannix (Walton 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 (Demian Bichir), who's taking care of Minnie's while she's visiting her mother, is holed up with Oswaldo Mobray (Tim Roth), the hangman of Red Rock, cow-puncher Joe Gage (Michael Madsen), and Confederate General Sanford Smithers (Bruce Dern). As the storm overtakes the mountainside stopover, our eight travelers come to learn they may not make it to Red Rock after all...

From the offbeat mind of Mike Judge (King of the Hill, Beavis and Butt-Head) comes a new season of the Emmy-winning comedy that takes viewers inside the lucrative world of Silicon Valley - and the socially awkward underdogs who try to navigate it. After taking the tech world by storm with their debut at TechCrunch Disrupt last season, Richard (Thomas Middleditch) and his Pied Piper team - Erlich (T.J. Miller), Jared (Zach Woods), Gilfoyle (Martin Starr) and Dinesh (Kumail Nanjiani) - look ahead to a bright and profitable future, one that's immediately soured by legal woes and petty revenge plans from Hooli overlord Gavin Belson (Matt Ross) and his competing platform, Nucleus. At Raviga, the empire created by Peter Gregory, big changes put the pressure on Monica (Amanda Crew), who's torn between her allegiance to Richard and her job working under a new head honcho, Laurie. Meanwhile, the presence of Richard's departed longtime pal Big Head (Josh Brener) looms large, as Gavin decides to use him to his fullest potential. Filled with even more industry cameos, this season of Silicon Valley promises to skewer the tech world with even greater veracity and hilarity, as its heroes continue to fumble their way towards unimaginable success.
