Quentin Tarantino is damn good at revitalizing lost movie genres (“Death Proof,” “Kill Bill”) so it should come as no surprise, with Django Unchained, he’s turned his eyes to the spaghetti western. In it, the titular character Django teams up with a bounty hunter to bring to justice the outlaw Brittle brothers and to exact revenge on a plantation owner responsible for selling Django’s slave wife. The trailer below brings the funk (I do believe I hear a James Brown track) and plenty of Tarantino’s trademark witty dialogue. It’s going to be good, but don’t take my word for it, watch and decide for yourself.
Django Unchained stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Jamie Foxx, Kerry Washington, Christoph Waltz, Samuel L. Jackson, Dennis Christopher, Walton Goggins, M.C. Gainey, Don Johnson and Anthony LaPaglia.
Django Unchained tracks down US theaters on December 25, 2012 and UK theaters on January 18, 2013.
