Once upon a time, in America’s Deep South, there was a German dentist turned bounty hunter who helped free a slave in return for his help in catching a murderous brotherly duo. In turn, he promised the newly freed slave to help him find his wife, trapped in the clutches of an evil Mississippi plantation owner – and seek an all out, bloody, explosive, sleek and seductive revenge to a vintage soundtrack. Sounds like an interesting yarn, right?
What we didn’t mention is that the aforementioned story stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Jamie Foxx and Christoph Waltz, and it’s directed by Quentin Tarintino too.
Yep, it’s been a while since Tarintino’s last outing with Inglorious Basterds, and it seems that QT has chopped, shot and scored another classic with his new western revenge thriller/homage to spaghetti westerns, ‘Django Unchained’.
The trailer hit the web today and as ever, film buffs the world over were drooling over their keyboards whilst listening to the prospect of sharp Tarintino dialogue and vintage soundtrack – they weren’t disappointed either.
The trailer looks terrific and it seems good old Quentin is back on form – with such a starry cast for company and a script as quick witted as any of the words uttered in Reservoir Dogs, this might just be a return to glory for one of the best cult directors around. You can find out for your own when the film is released on these shores on December 25th.
Until then, don’t forget that you can win all sorts of Tarintino related goodies over on Yipiii for just £1.
