Quentin Tarantino and new film in one sentence has been a rarity these days but when they do come around it’s usually something uniquely special and this January Django Unchained will arrive and tonight we have a new (UK) international trailer.
The new trailer comes courtesy of Sony Philippines and provides a lot of new unseen footage but it leaves you asking one question “If I watch this trailer, what else is there left to see when the film is released?” Don’t get me wrong this trailer is awesome and this trailer proves there’s still plenty of action to see as you could call this one the best of the bunch. Compared to the previous trailers the motivation of this one is the characters and the relationship between Django (Jamie Foxx) and Schultz (Christoph Waltz) and how much they both loathe Clavin Handie (Leonardo Di Caprio). But what we really love about this trailer is the authentic retro feel to it with picture quality as well as sound to reflect a proper old school Spaghetti Western.
With so many films been connected to be potential Oscar contenders if not challenging for the awards, I think it’s safe to say Django Unchained will be up there too. The UK&Irish release maybe 18th January 2013 however it will qualify as the American release date is 25th December! Below the trailer we have a number of new character posters reflecting the typical Tarantino visual style.
Django Unchained stars Samuel L Jackson, Kerry Washington ,Don Johnson, Tom Savini, M.C. Gainey, Walton Goggins, Garrett Dillahunt, Gerald McRaney, Laura Cayouette, Dennis Christopher and Jonah Hill.
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 (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.
Django and Schultz’s search ultimately leads them to Calvin Candie (Academy Award®-nominee Leonardo DiCaprio), the proprietor of “Candyland,” an infamous plantation where slaves are groomed by trainer Ace Woody (Kurt Russell) to battle each other for sport. Exploring the compound under false pretenses, Django and Schultz arouse the suspicion of Stephen (Academy Award®-nominee Samuel L. Jackson), Candie’s trusted house slave. Their moves are marked, and a treacherous organization closes in on them. If Django and Schultz are to escape with Broomhilda, they must choose between independence and solidarity, between sacrifice and survival…
