“Django Unchained”: Here’s The Trailer

“Django Unchained” stars Jamie Foxx as Django, a slave recruited by bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz) to find the villainous Brittle brothers in exchange for his freedom. Negotiating for the bounty hunter’s help in finding his kidnapped wife Broomhilda (Kerry Washington), the two men embark on a violent journey of justice and retribution, eventually arriving at the plantation of Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio). The trailer, which premiered exclusively on Fandango, features a remix of James Brown’s “The Payback,” as a righteously angry Django dispatches anyone who stands in his way. When asked by Schultz what he likes about bounty hunting, he coolly responds, “I kill white people and get paid for it. What’s not to like?”

Featuring the original Django, Franco Nero, as a cowboy who ironically asks Foxx’s character for his name, the clip ends with the tagline, “This Christmas, Django Is Off The Chain.” In the words of Calvin Candie, “You had my curiosity, now you have my attention” – it should be interesting to see what Tarantino does to keep it.
