Trailer Thursdays: Django Unchained

Posted on June 7, 2012 |

Cast : Jamie Foxx, Leonardo DiCaprio, Christoph Waltz, Samuel L. Jackson
Director : Quentin Tarantino
Release Date : December 25, 2012

Synopsis :

Set in the Deep South, it follows Django, a freed slave who treks across America with Dr. King Schultz, a German dentist turned bounty hunter. Together, they try to retrieve Django’s wife from the charming but sadistic Francophile plantation owner Calvin Candie and his band of ruthless slavers.

This is off the chain indeed!

Has it been already 3 whole years since Inglourious Basterds?

My, how time flies.

I will always be down for a QT flick. Whatever the subject matter, I know the man
will deliver. He’s back to what he does best, exploiting the exploitation genre
with another (the Kill Bill flicks beforehand) revenge film.

Back in the 1960s, there was a series of Spaghetti Western films by the name Django and starring one of exploitation’s biggest stars, Italian actor Franco Nero (who has a cameo in the film).

Those were set in the far west (shot on Italian soil), while this is a southern plantation-era western set in Louisiana.

Amazing cast put together here with Foxx, who hasn’t impressed me much
over the years but that could all change here. It also stars Christoph Waltz,
who’s last QT effort, won him the Oscar for his chilling portrayal of Colonel
Hans Landa
in Inglorious Basterds and DiCaprio, doing his best
Tom Hanks in The Ladykillers impression, may very well steal
the show playing the dastardly plantation owner.

This looks like a helluva fun time.
