Fighting Bucks, Blood & Samuel L. Jackson In New International Trailer For 'Django Unchained'

Sick of it yet? :)

An international trailer for Quentin Tarantino's much-anticipated Django Unchained, which stars Jamie Foxx in the title role, surfaced last night. 

You'll find much of what you saw in the first trailer, plus a few new scenes that we haven't seen – including a shot of Samuel L. Jackson as house negro Stephen, whom I don't recall seeing in the first trailer.

Watch it below:

ha! okay. okay. cool. cool. Leo kinda just shows up and 'drawls' suthron' don't he? I like Waltz. He's just captivating.


Why is it that some of the scenes in the trailer look like clear ripoffs of AMC’s Hell on Wheels with Common and Anson Mount? Even down to Jamie Foxx firing his gun and killing a bunch of white folks – and delivering one-liners in deadpan style – looks too familiar to Common’s performance as Elam Ferguson.

Tarantino may think he’s touching new ground and making something revolutionary (labeling Django a “Southern” rather than a “Western,” as if this movie will jumpstart an entire new genre), but it all looks too familiar to stuff that’s already out there right now. Surely the “American Godard” – as the New Yorker’s David Denby dubiously labeled him after Pulp Fiction – could’ve approached such material differently than restaging it as some John Ford-Sergio Leone-pastiche revenge epic. Even QT’s greatest asset – his ironic humor – isn’t as sharp as it once was. Now his humor feels stale, clumsy and even amateurish.
Having said that, I’m going to give the movie a chance, as I did with Inglorious Bastards because when he’s in his zone he can be great (better than Christopher Nolan, David Fincher and his other contemporaries). However, I haven’t thoroughly enjoyed a film of his since Jackie Brown, and I’m sure I’m going to be disappointed with this film as I was with IB. I read the script to Django Unchained and hoping he did massive rewrites (particularly for Kerry Washington’s sake!).

Despite my reservations, I'm going to give this a chance because I do like Tarantino when he's in his zone, but I haven't really enjoyed of film of his since Jackie Brown. (That was the one and only film from QT that felt as if he was finally progressing as a filmmaker.)

Am I the only person who thinks everything affiliated the promotion of this film sucks? Not unlike "Inglorious" it smacks of confectionary revisionist historical fantasy. And aside from that it's just weak.
