First Funky Teaser Trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained

Jamie Foxx in Django Unchained (2012) Movie ImageWell, it’s Quentin Tarantino, so it wasn’t like I wasn’t expecting a soundtrack straight out of a ’70s blaxploitation movie. Anyways, get your first look at Tarantino’s sure-to-be bloody Western “Django Unchained” (the “d” is silent, by the way). I still think Leonardo DiCaprio’s accent is wildly hilarious, and from the looks of this thing, if it comes in at under two and a half hours, I’ll be shock. Looks like Tarantino has tossed in quite a bit of story, with most of it set-up involving Django and Christoph Waltz’s German bounty hunter. Check it out, check it outers.

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. 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…
