Django Unchained International trailer is better
A new trailer for Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained has arrived online and it's actually rather good. I wasn't taken by the last one which reminded me of two things more than anything I saw in the film, one was Quentin Tarantino and the other was Inglorious Basterds.
However this new trailer for Django Unchained is starting to find its own path and although Tarantino is still the overriding factor pouring out of this trailer, it feels much more like its own film, and all the better for it.
The previous trailer for Django Unchained looked good, but I did feel there was just too much Inglorious Basterds feel to it and in a way it felt more like a little showreel for Quentin Tarantino rather than a film on its own. Perhaps that's just me feeling a little tired of the Tarantino style.
Saying that, I think this new trailer is making good headway towards feeling like it's its own film, and again that could be that the more viewings I have the more comfortable I become with it, I'm not sure.
Here's the large blurb for Django Unchained:
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 (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 (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 (amuel 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.
