I don’t think there’s any other director in Hollywood who could possibly touch the subject matter and style of Django Unchained and pull it off in such a stylistic and humorous manner than Quentin Tarantino.
The new trailer for the Jammie Foxx and Christoph Waltz led film takes an even deeper look at the revenge that plagues Django’s soul. The man’s ready to get dirty in his mission to rescue his love, Broomhilda (Kerry Washington), even if it means sending several slave owners to the grave.
Born and raised in Charleston, S.C., I have a soft spot in my heart for history, as the city’s known for its important role in the colonial times of America’s upbringing. Instead of creating a historical drama, Tarantino’s embedded a dark comedy in the center of a rough period in our nation’s history. It’s brave and unique enough to be coined as a Tarantino flick.
Continuing his theme of revenge from Inglorious Bastards, Tarantino brings us a story about an ex-slave who’s approached by bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz) to hunt down The Brittle Brothers, the same men who kidnapped Django’s wife. After rescuing him from a chain-gang and permitting him freedom, Schultz convinces Django to help him find and kill The Brittle Brothers and anyone standing in their way. The two embark on a journey, leaving a trail of blood-soaked cotton in their path.
This is the first trailer that gives us a good look at Samuel L. Jackson‘s character, Stephen, who appears to be the brains behind Leonardo DiCaprio‘s character, Calvin Candie. But perhaps Stephen has his own reasons for helping out Candie. There’s also a surprise appearance from Jonah Hill as the screw-up member of ’The Regulators’, who are not the KKK, but instead the predecessors. Also, is there a record for how many times Jackson’s said “fool” in a movie?
Check out the trailer, and be sure to leave a comment in the box below. How do you think Django’s turning out? Will you be in line on Christmas Day?
