Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained Trailer is Off the Django

By Dustin Rowles | Trade News | June 6, 2012 | Comments ()


Quentin Tarantion's first teaser for Django Unchained has finally arrived, and it's every bit as cool as we could've hoped. The focus here is clearly on Christopher Waltz's character, which is assuredly a good thing. The surprise, however, is how deliciously evil Leanardo DiCaprio is. Don't look now, folks, but DiCaprio is actually having fun. That man is drinking the Tarantino Kool-Aid, and he's drunk on it. Next thing you know, he'll be doing Apatow comedies.

Whatever it is, it certainly seems to be working for him.

Oh, and by the way: Kerry Washington. Goodness.

  • Reading the thread, I think some of y'all may be mistaking the tone of the trailer for the tone of the movie. Kill Bill and Inglorious Basterds both were presented, trailer-wise, as callbacks to certain eras of cheeziness but the final products were, on the whole, FUCKING INTENSE. He writes good dialogue and he gets good actors and they blow your fucking mind with the performances. You can't touch Thurman. You can't touch Waltz. Don't even front on that.

    I'm willing to give Jamie Foxx a chance but it would have been another level with Idris.

  • Matt Penn

    Oh, boy!  It'll be like watching movies I already saw, but new!  Thanks, Quentin!

  • Az

    So Di Caprio plays Colonel Angus?

  • Egg

    I am a huge Tarantino fanboy, but I'm really underwhelmed by this trailer.   It looks a lot sillier than I expected.  I will still see it, of course, and probably love it -- but I am a bit concerned now.

  • Optimus

    So there's a scene where Waltz dresses up like Colonel Sanders AND a scene where Jamie Foxx dresses up like Austin Powers?

    Yeah, SOLD.

  • BobbFrapples

    I just watched The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly for the first time last night and I was really surprised by the dark humor in it.  If Django Unchained can capture that brand of humor, I'm going to really enjoy this movie.  

  • hasshole

    Does anyone else hope Kerry Washington will stand up during that hot spring soak?

  • Anna von Beav

    I just took a look at the rest of the cast on IMDb. Oh, hey, RZA! Nice to see you again. And Tom Savini. And Bruce Dern. Don Johnson? Tom Wopat?! James Remar?! And don't forget dear Zoe Bell, lovely as always.

    DELIGHTFUL.  I am delighted.

  • mona_sterling

    Tom Wopat AND Don Johnson? That does it, I'm in.

  • Muhnah_Muhnah

    Everyman Cinema here I come! (You so know they'll show it. Or Curzon. But fuck them, they don't have a bar inside the actual theatre rooms/halls/whatever). Oh and yeah, I'm also pissed that this role didn't go to Idris Elba because fuck Jamie Fox.

  • Guest

    "Last chance, fancy-pants!" DiCaprio and Foxx appear to be bearable for once. Consider me mollified. Also, Nero? O my, heaven just opened wiiiiide for us fanboys.

    Like Inglourious, this one's gonna discomfit a lot of patriots. The reviews will be popcorn-worthy.

  • ClaireB

    Di Caprio is having fun !?! Damn' it is the end of the world.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    Franco Nero is still alive? 

    But yeah, this is working for me.

  • feelingreallyold

    "Django....the "D" is silent" to the original Django.  Ha ha.  Funny.  

  • Chrispeare

    Just give Leo the Oscar now. Since he'll probably be robbed of it, anyway.

  • Bodhi

    Want to SEEEEE!

  • junierizzle

    Are the people that are hating on this serious? What's not to like?  Dicaprio looks insane.

  • Andrew

    Actually the D is pronounced since a voiced alveolar affricate is a combination of a D phoneme and an Yogh phoneme.

  • Arran

    Disappointed Will Smith didn't want to do this. Not so much because I think he would've been especially great in the role, it just would've been nice to see him take a risk.

    Ah well. Looks like it could be a good time anyway.

  • Cree83

    While this film doesn't look like the typical "white savior complex" type movie, I'm actually a little perturbed that the focus seems to be on Waltz instead of, you know, the title character.  

    Oh well.  Looking forward to it anyway.

  • Mr_Zito

    Every time I click on a link referring to Django Unchained I expect to find Idris Elba in it, and every time that I don't see him is a big disappointment. Those damn rumors and my damn memory that keeps forgetting he is not in it have already ruined this movie for me.

  • DarthCorleone

    That trailer paints this movie about ten times goofier than I expected this movie to be.  We'll see how true the trailer is.

  • L.O.V.E.

    You will all have to excuse me. 

    My hard-on has now lasted over 4 hours and I will be going to the hospital.

  • looks like i'm in the minority, here but this doesn't look that great to me. christoph and jamie look like they'll be fun, but leo looks like he's playing dress-up. i like the music, but the rest just looks so-so. nothing really pops for me.

  • Logan

    When I saw Kerry Washington Goodness was not on my mind.

  • comma

     Woman to Mae West: "Goodness! What diamonds!"

    Mae West: "Goodness had nothing to do with it."
    Oh yeah:

    Mo. Ther. Fuck.


  • mona_sterling

    Christopher Waltz looks like a bad-ass Col. Sanders in some of those scenes.  Not that that's a bad thing.  I just wish Django was...well, almost anyone else.

  • Phaedre

    I don't know why I ever doubted Quentin could pull this off. Best early Christmas present ever!

    The only thing that I will never get over is that this should have been Idris Elba's role to play. Jamie Foxx don't scare me none.

  • I think it's fair to say I'm excited. Yep. Definitely excited.

  • Joyeetargh

    This looks exactly how I wanted it to look. Sold! To the lady who has been waiting for this movie for a long arse time.

  • Neil Cullen

    Waltz's accent I'm not sold on, he's supposed to be American? I don't like the tone of the trailer either, but that's no solid indication of the tone of the actual film.

  • Matthijs

     No, if I recall correctly he's just a German bounty hunter. No need to worry about the accent.

  • Jess

    according to wikipedia he's supposed to be german

  • TheOtherGreg

    This looks great. So did Inglorious Basterds, though.

  • Serpentlord

    But Inglorious Basterds was great, Daniel Carlson can eat a dick.

  • Leonard

    Are you implying that Inglorious Basterds was not great? Because it was, you bastard.

  • TheOtherGreg

    I'm saying that most of Tarantino's films LOOK great, but the plot and character never live up to that greatness.

  • googergieger

    That is because they are superficial fluff. They aren't meant to have much substance. Unless of course they are, in which case you have a point. As far as I can tell though, superficial fluff is what he gives us. Superficial fluff is what I take away. Plot is usually pretty simple, characters are usually overblown caricatures, and we are given some awesome scenes/moments he probably saw in a movie that has what you are looking for, and all in all tends to be just the right amount of enjoyable.

    Ready for this!

  • melia

    Blood on the cotton bolls! How I've missed you, Quentin.

  • Boo-effing-yah.

  • Vlad

    AHHHHH!!! That was way beyond my expectations. Leo is fuckin amazing. 

  • googergieger

    So Dicaprio is channeling his inner Kenneth Braggah from Wild Wild West for this movie? I'll see it cause Tarantino is good for a fun watch. I'm still hoping I'll see a Takashi Miike cameo. Though I'm guessing I'm going to have to wait for when Tarantino finishes up his samurai movie for that.

  • Samantha Klein

    YES. Someone else noticed the resemblance.
