… what? You want more of a preamble? It’s Quentin’s newie! Go watch it already!
In case you haven’t fully grasped the premise from the trailer, or have skimmed past it in the countless casting announcements from the past 12 months, here it is again: Jamie Foxx stars as Django, a slave who is freed by a German bounty hunter played by Christoph Waltz. The pair team up to rescue Django’s wife Broomhilda (Kerry Washington) from plantation owner Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his right-hand man Ace Woody.
The trailer offers some gorgeous vistas, brutal violence, an oddly threatening villain, the promise of vengeance, and anachronistic music. Sound familiar?
Django Unchained arrives in Australian cinemas January 24, 2013.
