Django Unchained Gets A Brand New Badass Trailer
Thus far the marketing campaign for Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained has largely played up the comedic side of the story. Set to James Brown's "The Big Payback," the previous trailers would feature quips between Jamie Foxx and Christoph Waltz, and the occasional action movie dialogue ("I like the way you die, boy"). For the latest preview, however, the script has been flipped and instead of humor this time around Tarantino is delivering pure, high-octane badass.
The brand new theatrical trailer fro Django Unchained - which clocks in at an awesome two minutes, thirty seconds - has been released over on Apple and I dare you to not watch it three or four times.
I love how this trailer plays in perfect contrast with all of the other footage we've seen - even though a good amount of the footage seen in the new trailer was seen in previous context elsewhere. We should get used to the darkness that the film will have, as the director said at Comic Con that it will be a reflection of the south before the Civil War and allow him to feature historical accuracy on a large scale. If he can mix the darkness with the humor and badassness then we should have another classic Tarantino flick on our hands.
Django Unchained follows an escaped slave (Foxx) and an Austrian bounty hunter (Waltz) who make a deal to collect the bounty on three men known as The Brittle Brothers and then rescue the escaped slave's wife (Kerry Washington) from an evil plantation owner named Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio). The film will be in theaters this Christmas and you can head over to our Blend Film Database to see more.
