DJANGO UNCHAINED Teaser – More Samuel L. Jackson, More Franco Nero
Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained just keeps looking better and better. You’d think by this stage, I should know better than to let myself know anything about his films, but I just can’t help myself. A new TV spot has emerged, and while it doesn’t have a whole lot in the way of new footage, it just keeps piling flavour onto this thing. And it smells delicious.
What we know at this point: Jamie Foxx’s Django teams up with Christolph Waltz’s bounty hunter to kill some of Watlz’s, uh… bounties, and also get Django’s wife back from demented plantation owner, Leonardo DiCaprio. Also, because this is a Tarantino film, Sam Jackson is in there.
Check out the new clip below:
Well, that already looks like a barrel of fun, and you can bet, knowing it’s a Tarantino flick, that the pace, tone, and excitement in that trailer can be carried through the whole movie. Unless you don’t like him, in which case, the opposite of all those things I said. And also, I want to give you a hug, because being hugged is how his films make me feel.
As mentioned, this clip plays a lot like the previous trailer – Jamie Foxx being cold as ice, Christolph Waltz being charming as shit, Leonardo DiCaprio seemingly channelling Clark Gable from Gone With The Wind, if he was even creepier, and a nice brief clip of Sam Jackson being a grumpy, elderly slave. If Black Snake Moan is anything to go by (and it should be – film is wonderful), Sam Jackson acts roughly 20% better when he is grey.
There seems to be all the violence, bombast and coolness that you either love or dread in a Tarantino flick, and he’s not shy of easter eggs, either – the trailer, like the last, ends with a cutesy interaction between Jamie Foxx and Franco Nero, where Foxx tells Nero his name “Django. ‘D’ is silent.”
For those of you who don’t sing the old theme song loudly while in your underwear, changing the words to whatever you’re doing & thinking at the time (it makes things feel less horribly depressing), Nero played a character called Django in a spaghetti western called Django. Although this new film is unrelated to that one, I hope Tarantino figures out a way to include that rad soundtrack. Seriously, it’s the best. It’ll get stuck in your head though, and take over your thought process more than Carly Rae Jespen.
To the theme: TY-PING (Ty-ping) I am typing todaaaaayyyy. TY-PING (Ty-ping) It’s difficult with the shaaaaaakes. Just quit drinking, (whooooa) Call your Mum (whooooa) Go to the dentist, it’s been years…
Sure, it’s no Craig Emerson “No Whyalla Wipeout”, but it’s a start.
