The first trailer for Django Unchained, the much-anticipated Spaghetti Western film by auteur film-maker Quentin Tarantino is here.
This Christmas, go West. And this ain't no the Old Wild West that you can remember... Thanks to auteur film-maker Quentin Tarantino. Notoriously well-known for his love of pulp cinema in all its various facets, Tarantino will be dipping his hands into Spaghetti Western in his latest film, Django Unchained.
We have first took an all-too-brief glimpse at the film with the release of its official synopsis and first poster. And now, with the film's first trailer attached to Ridley Scott's Prometheus, that means we already have it here online.
With no further ado, hit the jump to check out the trailer featuring some signature Tarantino moment, as well as the kickass musical scores and imageries one would expect from Tarantino.
Featuring Jamie Foxx as the eponymous character Django, the film tracks the escaped slave-turned-bounty hunter's personal vendetta to rescue his wife (played by Kerry Washington) from an dastardly evil plantation owner Calvin Candie (amazingly portrayed by Leonardo DiCaprio), alongside Dr. King Schultz (gleefully portrayed by Christoph Waltz) who played mentor to the up-and-coming bounty hunter.
Based on what we saw from the trailer, Django Unchained is shaping up be an unmissable film.
Here are some of the official set images released thus far.
Here’s the official synopsis for the film:
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…
Written and directed by Academy Award®-winner Quentin Tarantino, DJANGO UNCHAINED is produced by Stacey Sher, Pilar Savone and Reginald Hudlin. The executive producers are Harvey and Bob Weinstein, Michael Shamberg, Shannon McIntosh, and James Skotchdopole. DJANGO UNCHAINED will be released in the U.S. on December 25, 2012, and internationally by Sony Pictures Releasing International.
