I saw the new trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s latest film Django last night and I’ll be darned if it didn’t make me want to see it. As much as I love Q’s work, I don’t care for Westerns as a rule and Jamie Foxx and Leonardo DiCaprio both tend to stomp on my last good nerve, so the fact that I still would like to see this film speaks volumes.
Here’s a quick synopsis of ‘Django Unchained’ if you’re unfamiliar:
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.
Written and directed by Academy Award®-winner Quentin Tarantino, Django Unchainedis produced by Stacey Sher, Reginald Hudlin and Pilar Savone. The executive producers are Harvey and Bob Weinstein, Michael Shamberg, Shannon McIntosh, and James Skotchdopole. Starring Jaime Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Kerry Washington, Leonardo DiCaprio, Samuel L. Jackson,
Dennis Christopher, Laura Cayouette, M.C. Gainey, Tom Savini, Anthony LaPaglia and James Remar, Django Unchained is scheduled for theatrical release on December 25th, 2012.
See what I mean? Looks good, huh? I don’t know if I’ll see “Django Unchained” on Christmas Day, but I do think I’ll venture out into Seattle’s bone-chilling sideways-rain to see Taranatino’s latest film. What do you guys think?
