Final ‘Django Unchained’ Trailer is Action-Packed

Published 2 years ago by , Updated February 24th, 2014 at 9:04 am,

Many of this year’s likely Best Picture candidates, including Argo and Lincoln, have already hit theaters, but there are still a handful of movies that could shake things up at the Oscars.

One of those films is Django Unchained, the latest from director Quentin Tarantino, which stars Jamie Foxx as a freed slave fighting to rescue his wife (Kerry Washington) from an evil plantation owner (Leonardo DiCaprio). Based on some of the film’s trailers and TV spots, Django Unchained looks like it has all the trademarks of a classic Tarantino flick – sharp dialogue, bloody violence, and a mix of action and music that puts a fresh twist on classic genre conventions.

Today, Yahoo premiered a new trailer (above) for Django Unchained which really focuses on the film’s action sequences and has a lot of great new footage. While¬†the previous international trailer did a good job of highlighting the soul of the movie (Django’s romantic quest to rescue his wife), this one does a great job of selling the movie as a tale of revenge. I can’t help but wonder what Will Smith would have done with this role had he agreed to star – as was Tarantino’s initial idea – but all things considered, this definitely looks like another Tarantino classic.

There are so many things to like about Django Unchained, it’s almost impossible to list them all. You’ve got Leonardo DiCaprio chewing into a ridiculously over-the-top bad guy role; Christoph Waltz lending his considerable skills as a veteran bounty hunter; and, of course, Jamie Foxx as the vengeance-seeking Django (“I like the way you die, boy“).

As for the movie’s Oscar chances, it’s still likely to be considered a dark horse candidate since there’s so much strong competition for this year’s top prize. However, it wouldn’t be the first time that Tarantino’s films have been nominated. Both Pulp Fiction and Inglourious Basterds received Best Picture nods.

What do you think of this latest Django Unchained trailer? Will you be seeing this movie over your Christmas break?

Django Unchained hits theaters on December 25th, 2012.

  1. I think I saw I good guys act like bad guys in Inglorious Basterdz (sp). If I watch this it’s just for Foxx’s performance.

  2. Can`t Wait!!! :)

  3. Looks great! Still, this is the best Django trailer so far: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w8Ge2hmSTbo

  4. Foxx has his Oscar, but this movie is going to make him a “put a$$es in seats on opening weekend” movie star.

    • I’m going to say no this movies draw is Leonardo DiCaprio and tarintino. it would have been a box office smash if will Smith took the roll like initially offered.

  5. Looking forward to this one

  6. Dicaprio looks like he’ll be stealing the show in this one.

  7. yeah i very happy leo dicaprio finally playing a villain , and cant wait to see what he does with the role, makes me wonder , what he would have been like as a much much darker version of the riddler.

  8. I love the curiosity and attention line, classic Tarantino. Cant wait.

  9. CANT WAIT FOR THIS MOVIEEEE TO BE RELEASED !

  10. This is s bad a$$ movie Jamie needs an Oscar and Kerry.
