The first trailer for Quentin Tarantino‘s Django Unchained has landed online. The film starsJamie Foxx as the titular Django, an escaped slave who goes to rescue his wife (Kerry Washington) from sadistic plantation owner Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio) by teaming up with bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz). This trailer is quintessential Tarantino with killer music choices, flowery dialogue, and atmosphere galore. Waltz is actually front and center here, and it’s great to see him spouting Tarnatino’s words with such cheerfulness once again. Foxx looks to be in fine form as our protagonist, but I’m eager to see more of DiCaprio’s performance as the dastardly plantation owner. Nevertheless, I love everything about this first footage and if the trailer doesn’t bring a big smile to your face, then you’re probably dead inside.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer. The film also stars Samuel L. Jackson, M.C. Gainey, Walton Goggins, Garrett Dillahunt, Dennis Christopher, Gerald McRaney, Laura Cayouette, Don Johnson,and Tom Savini. Django Unchained opens on December 25th.
