I don’t even say that as an insult. Knowing Quentin, who famously never hates any movie, Clue is as likely to be an influence as Sergio Leone.
What is clear is that eight characters are gonna hole up in a cabin and talk, talk, talk…because one of them is not what they seem. QT loves the sounds of his characters voices, and thus far has been fortunate that most of us do too. I am assuming most of the best lines cannot be shared in a trailer for all audiences, because I’d hate to think Kurt Russell’s “I am the hangman, and I am going to hang somebody unless someone wants to stop me from hanging while we’re hanging out. Hang hangity hang hangman,” is the best it gets.
Minus fifty points to Gryffindor for the spelling of “H8ful.”
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
