This Wednesday we were finally blessed with our first glimpse into Quentin Tarantino’s new film "Django Unchained." And it looks incredible.
Christmas can’t come soon enough.
It’s been three years since "Inglourious Basterds", with its incredible visual mashup of war films and revenge fantasy and musical nod to Ennio Morricone’s masterful spaghetti western scores. "Django Unchained" looks to have all the gorgeous visuals, masterful acting, and cinematic genre blending that we know and love from Tarantino’s previous works. It also includes a few of his favorite players, like Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, Kill Bill vol. 2, Inglourious Basterds) and Christoph Waltz (Inglourious Basterds), as well as some new collaborators like Leonardo DiCaprio (The Departed, Inception), Jamie Foxx (Ray, The Soloist, Law Abiding Citizen), and James Remar (The Warriors, 48 Hours, Dexter), and includes what looks like a cameo from one of the spaghetti western genre’s most notable leading men, Franco Nero, who starred in the original "Django" (1966). Based on the music in the trailer, it looks like we can expect the same nods to spaghetti westerns, blacksploitation films, and Japanese cinema that have became staples in Tarantino’s works.
"Django Unchained" is set to hit theaters on December 25.
