Trailer Park | Django Unchanged

7 06 2012

Leave it to Quentin Tarantino to create a Black Superhero slave (no disrespect to Fred Williamson) in the highly-anticipated holiday release, Django Unchained!

Starring in the lead role after Will Smith passed is Oscar winner Jamie Foxx in this star-studded story. Set in the Deep South, and follows Django (Foxx), a freed slave who treks across America with Dr. King Schultz (Waltz), a German dentist turned bounty hunter. Together, they try to retrieve Django’s wife Broomhilda (Kerry Washington) from the charming but sadistic Francophile plantation owner Calvin Candie (DiCaprio) and his band of ruthless slavers.

The title and setting of the film appear to be inspired by the 1960s spaghetti western Django and its many unofficial sequels, with original Django star Franco Nero having a small role

The film also stars Leo DiCaprio, Kurt Russell and Samuel L. Jackson.

Much like Tarantino’s last film, Inglorious Bastards, Tarantino flips the script, historically, once again. Instead of Jews killing Nazis, this time slaves raise up, violently against their slave owners.

Foxx, who appears to have recommitted himself back to film, has recently been cast as the President in another upcoming film, White House Down. Also, competing against himself this holiday film season is DiCaprio, who also will topline The Great Gatsby.

Already a huge fan of Tarantino’s work, this trailer has me very excited to see if the former Grindhouse director will bring a similar formula to this story showing Django putting it down!

Co-produced by Reginald Hudlin, Django Unchained explodes in theaters on Christmas Day!

this will be on my list to see. while i don’t like Jamie Foxx, i do think he’s a good actor and puts everything in his acting to make it an award winning role. i thought he was really good as The Soloist.
