Fans of Quentin Tarantino will know all about New Zealand-raised stuntwoman and actress Zoë Bell. Not only is she appearing in the director’s latest film The Hateful Eight, but she’s also worked on Kill Bill: Vol. 1Kill Bill: Vol. 2Death Proof and Inglorious Basterds

After working with Tarantino stateside for many years, Bell is now set to show the legendary director her side of the world for the New Zealand premiere of The Hateful Eight. Taking place on January 20 at Event Cinemas Broadway in Newmarket, Auckland, this is certainly going to be a treat for Tarantino fans downunder.
For those not in the know, here’s the film’s synopsis:
Set 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 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. 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…
Filled with classic Tarantino trademarks, The Hateful Eight is sure to leave an impression on audiences and critics, once again cementing Tarantino’s place as a master of his craft.
