The Weinstein Company has unveiled a new trailer for Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained," starring Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz and Leonardo DiCaprio. Check it out below.
Plot: Django (Foxx) is a slave who is liberated by a German dentist-turned-bounty hunter (Waltz) and taught the tricks of the trade by his mentor. Django's major goal in life is to recover his wife (Kerry Washington), and to do it he needs to get past the villainous ranch owner Calvin Candie (DiCaprio), who runs Candyland, a despicable club and plantation in Mississippi where female slaves are exploited as sex objects and males are pitted against each other in death matches. Candyland is a slave's worst nightmare, and that is where Django's wife Broomhilda is an abused slave.
The rest of the cast is comprised of Jonah Hill, Samuel L. Jackson, Don Johnson, Joseph Goron-Levitt, and RZA. "Django Unchained" is set to hit theaters on December 25th.
Tarantino is the most overrated director of all time. He's the directorial equivalent of Pia Zadora. His movies hearken back to other movies as though they were all filmed in a cinematic echo chamber managed by aging hipsters wearing daddy's mustache and grandpa's spats. The original Django is a good spaghetti western. This will be a pale (black) imitation. Yes, Tarantino does play with mores, but better directors have played with mores far more creativity, like Jodorowsky and Ken Russell. Although I love westerns, especially ones set during the civil war, like The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly, I think Tarantino's take will be somewhere between good and ugly, which is very bad. This is a film I would pay not to see.
The Trailer looked terrible but Im sure I will enjoy this.

Hey, bullit is back! nice to have you, mate.
"The less i've liked the look of this movie"
Same here. Not sure if it's only adverts or the movie itself will look like a grindhouse/blaxploitation take on spaghetti western?
I'm not sure if I myself can compute what the f*ck i wrote with that genre mashup concept, but it looks like it.
There must be a reason why Will Smith, Kevin Costner, Kurt Russell, Sasha Baron Cohen, Joseph Gordon
Lewitt and a reportedly a sh*ttone of others turned down parts in this movie. Stating "scheduling conflicts".

"I wonder what genre is next for QT to conquer. All that's left is Sci-fi and Horror."
lol, you're such a dope. QT has conquered only one genre, and that's the QT genre.
He's never done action, romance, or comedy, much less sci-fi and horror. He's a one trick pony.
And please don't f*cking tell me Pulp Fiction or Inglorious Basterds is either action or comedy.
f*cker only knows how to remake sh*t he saw as a kid whilst jacking off to whatever film he snuck into when he wasn't trying to lick his sister's feet.

All of QT's movies have a dark sense of humor and some action so he doesn't really need to make an all out comedy or action film. True Romance was a great romance film imo. But you're right about one thing, no matter what genre he dabbles in or remixes they all maintain his unique brand and style. I for one like that style, so I'm rarely disappointed. Sure I like to see directors go against their grain sometimes, but I'm not going to knock them for doing what they're best at.

And please don't jump all over me for bringing up True Romance. I know he wrote not directed it. But its still relevant imo.

And Mink you're a little old for this name calling bullsh*t. Let's leave that p*ssy sh*t to the kids on here and try to have a mature debate if need be.

No one's getting sick of the same movie being made over and over again? This is Inglourious Basterds in a different era, that's all. I think I'm the only one who hates QT's movies.
This guy can rehash anything he wants as long as he makes it entertaining and fun to watch. Yeah, his movies may all be in the same style, but that's what makes them Tarantino movies, and that is why I will watch them.
QT really wishes he was black doesn't he. Just hope this isn't the snooze fest Ingourious Bastards was.

Mink, I understand that QT makes movies that he grew up watching but isnt that all directors writers musicians etc? What I mean is that we all take from our esperiences from what we see or hear and expand on them. We try to make something very original but its near impossible to make something "new" as we all steal ideas. I am just curious who you would choose as a director or musician or whatever of recent times that created something absolutley original.
ZXZ I have scene 2 of aleandro jorodowsky movies el topo and something mountain? I have Santa Sangre but not yet watched any other ideas for movies like his?
