If there’s anything we’ve learned from the new international trailer for “Django Unchained,” it’s that Christoph Waltz and Jamie Foxx are quite handy with guns.
The new minute-long teaser for Quentin Tarantino’s latest is the most entertaining look at the flick that we’ve had to date. Instead of focusing on the plot — which, like most Tarantino movies, gets a bit dark — this trailer shows off the playful side of “Django Unchained.” We always knew we would have a fun time watching the movie, but it seems as though the characters involved will be in for some exciting times as well.
“Django Unchained” follows Django (Foxx) as he seeks to rescue his wife Broomhilda (Kerry Washington) from the men who captured her. He teams up with Dr. King Schultz (Waltz), a bounty hunter who enlists him to help him catch his quarry before they go on to find Django’s wife. Their hunt leads them to a plantation called “Candyland,” run by the delightfully villainous Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio). Based on what we know about the project, things spiral quickly out of control from that point onwards.
This trailer simply makes the movie seem fun. “Django Unchained” will likely get as dark as Tarantino’s last movie, “Inglourious Basterds,” but at least there will be some levity to balance it off. DiCaprio seems like he’s having the time of his life as Calvin Candie, and we’re just glad to see him playing something other than a mopey leading man whose wife just died.
“Django Unchained” is due in theaters on December 25.
