Django Unchained is Director Quentin Tarantino’s follow up to 2009’s Inglorious Basterds. What that film did for World War II films, this film does for Western’s. It takes the typical archetypes of the genre and somewhat historical scenarios, and twists them into excellent, dark, pulpy, violent entertainment.
I have no idea what I expected while I was anxiously awaiting this trailer, but I should have figured this Western would be more Pulp Fiction rather than Unforgiven. Starring Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, and Leonardo DiCaprio, Django Unchained is a story about a Dentist turned bounty hunter (Waltz) who sets out across America with a freed slave to retrieve Django’s wife from a plantation owner (DiCaprio). The trailer is hip and stylized, I’d expect no less from director Quentin Tarantino.
