Last week we had a chance to see the first teaser for Quentin Tarantino’s new film Django Unchained. The movie looked like the sexy love child between the classic blaxploitation and western genres, and an oddly natural next step for Tarantino after the Kill Bills and Inglorious Basterds.
Thankfully international audiences tend to need to be sold films differently than their North American counterparts, which allows for the release of this more strait-forward trailer that gives us a more traditional sense of the plot of the movie. For those new to the Unchained train, here is the official 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. 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.
Django Unchained comes out on Christmas Day, so it is basically the Tarantino’s Christmas present to cinema fans everywhere. Check out the new international trailer after the jump.
Am I the only one excited to the fantastic James Remar popping up in these trailers?
