“Gentlemen, you had my curiosity, but now you have my attention” – Calvin Candie (Django Unchained 2012)
The full trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained (Westplotation? Blaxtern?) has hit the net. This latest revenge flick by QT tells the tale of hardened slave Django (Jamie Foxx) being rescued by bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz (Christopher Waltz) who enlists him to find three slave brothers. On their escapades they run into slave owner Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio) who doesn’t take kindly to their lefty views on men owning men. Candie also may know a little something somethun’ on Django’s long lost wife.
A Tarantino film about racism and revenge. Need we say more? Check it out below:
Fandango has the official trailer release.
Is it me, or was trailer a bit of a misrepresentation on those two R&R themes I mentioned above? Seriously, I wanted to fan myself like a southern bell and say “my word” after viewing this, but instead I was left feeling slightly confused by its tone. Is it really that hard to convey the horrors of slavery and the evil men do?
Regardless, this is Tarantino were talking about. He always manages to insert a feeling of fun and intelligence… and feet. Oh rest assured, we’re bound to see a number of provocative shots of women’s feet.
I will say, DiCarprio looks deliciously charming as the Kentucky Fried asshole Calvin Candie.
Django Unchained hits on December 25.
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.
