International trailer for Django Unchained is unleashed!
Quentin Tarantino's DJANGO UNCHAINED has unleashed a new international trailer, which features more shooting, more blood, and more of Jamie Foxx in that ridiculous blue suit. It's a riotous bit of fun and should serve to stoke the flames of those burning for some more Tarantino.
I'm looking forward to this. There's a lot of talk about "controversial" elements, which just comes with the territory when implementing the ugly stain of slavery into any movie. It's a tough topic any way you slice it. However, I don't think it'll cause riots in the street. DJANGO UNCHAINED feels like INGLORIOUS BASTERDS and KILL BILL thrown into a blender and sprinkled with Spaghetti western then pureed, in which case I'm happy to have a cupfull.
Here's the synopsis:
Set in the South two years before the Civil War, DJANGO UNCHAINED stars Academy Award®-winner Jamie Foxx as Django, a slave whose brutal history with his former owners lands him face-to-face with German-born bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz (Academy Award®-winner Christoph Waltz). Schultz is on the trail of the murderous Brittle brothers, and only Django can lead him to his bounty. The unorthodox Schultz acquires Django with a promise to free him upon the capture of the Brittles – dead or alive.
Success leads Schultz to free Django, though the two men choose not to go their separate ways. Instead, Schultz seeks out the South’s most wanted criminals with Django by his side. Honing vital hunting skills, Django remains focused on one goal: finding and rescuing Broomhilda (Kerry Washington), the wife he lost to the slave trade long ago.
Django and Schultz’s search ultimately leads them to Calvin Candie (Academy Award®-nominee Leonardo DiCaprio), the proprietor of “Candyland,” an infamous plantation. Exploring the compound under false pretenses, Django and Schultz arouse the suspicion of Stephen (Academy Award®-nominee Samuel L. Jackson), Candie’s trusted house slave. Their moves are marked, and a treacherous organization closes in on them. If Django and Schultz are to escape with Broomhilda, they must choose between independence and solidarity, between sacrifice and survival…
DJANGO UNCHAINED breaks free on December 25, 2012.
