The first trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s epic Southern, “Django Unchained,” dropped last week, and we thought that might be all we see from the highly anticipated movie for a while. Then today, a new international trailer unloaded a bunch of new footage to remind us exactly why we’re looking forward to December.
The international trailer also reveals one of the more controversial aspects of the script, something that didn’t make it into the domestic trailer.

Perhaps the biggest highlight from the first preview, Leonardo DiCaprio as plantation and slave owner Calvin Candie, gets a little more fleshed out in this new trailer.
Candie buys and sells slaves, in part, to maintain his main hobby, prize fighting. He forces the slaves he purchases to train and then fight other captive men to the death. He’s not just an eccentric. This is one bad man.
The one slave on Candie’s plantation that doesn’t have to suffer the wrath of his cruel master is Stephen, played by Samuel L. Jackson. The international trailer reveals Jackson’s look in “Django Unchained,” and we see him in full-on old age makeup. The dynamic between Stephen and Candie makes for some of the movie’s most interesting and hilarious dialogue.
Plus, there is a whole lot more of Christoph Waltz here, which is never a bad thing.
