Django Unchained International Trailer Offers New Footage
"Gentleman, you had my curiosity, but now you have my attention." With the first teaser for Quentin Tarantino's hotly anticipated Django Unchained, this line drawled out by a gleefully evil Leonard DiCaprio seemed to speak for eager movie-lovers across the web. Showcasing the riveting bravado of Inglourious Basterds Oscar-winning star Christoph Waltz as well as unveiling the bounty-driven plot of Tarantino's take on Westerns, that teaser made many of us desperate for more.
Now, Sony Pictures is obliging by unveiling an international trailer, which in turn churns out new details of Django Unchained. Check it out below:
Johnny Cash's haunting rendition of Ain't No Grave takes a backseat to plot details in this trailer. For one, the respectable front of Waltz's bounty hunter was only hinted at before, where here it's laid plain: his cover is traveling dentist, a detail so peculiar and particular it's perfectly Tarantino.
Then while the former flees its first kill by pumping up with James Brown's funk classic The Payback, the second plays out the murder of slave traders keeping the Cash track brewing while unveiling new shots of murder, cruelty and mayhem. It's a grittier approach, reveling in Django's dark side. But it's not all grief and drama. Driving hard into the trailer's final half, in comes the Brown track to punctuate the feature's sassy sense of humor and bold aesthetic. Plus, this one shares a shot of Samuel L. Jackson. What's not to love?
While film fans across the pond, will have to wait until 2013 for Tarantino's latest, Django Unchained opens Stateside on Christmas Day. Until then, you can find more about the film at our Blend Film Database.
