Part spaghetti western, part slavery/vengeance pic and all Quentin Tarantino, the first trailer for "Django Unchained" has arrived and it's everything you could ask for and expect from the filmmaker.

You already know what it's about. Jamie Foxx stars as Django, a slave freed by the bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz, played by Christoph Waltz, who trains the man and then accompanies him on a journey to track down his wife Broomhilda (Kerry Washington), who is being held by the sadistic plantation owner Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio). The Weinsteins are selling this as The New Film By Quentin Tarantino -- one of the few helmers who is a brand name too -- and it has everything that title implies. Mixing brutal violence with a caustic wit, and an exaggerated sense of reality, those looking for a "Roots" style story, best head somewhere else. This is slavery and westerns through the Tarantino prism, and if you're already a fan of the filmmaker this likely doesn't disappoint.

Cast wise, everyone looks uniformly strong, with DiCaprio standing out as the sneering villain and Foxx nicely commanding the title role with some charisma to spare. This is basically an edit of the ten minutes of footage we saw at the Cannes Film Festival and unfortunately, you'll have to wait to see Don Johnson, who slayed in the reel that played. But enough talk -- "Django Unchained" opens on Christmas Day. Watch below.

    I went to the screening for this film yesterday night, Tarantino was there for a Q&A,
    I must say in all my 35 years in the film industry, this is the most amazing, and beautiful film, I have ever seen! I have never been more moved by a film, it's not exactly like trailer portrays, it's a true blockbuster, something for everyone! Crazy at some parts, but that's what you'd expect from a Tarantino flick, Jamie Foxx delivered the performance of his life! Better than Denzel in training day, I shit you not! I'm not even a fan of his, but sometimes you just have to admit, you just have to congratulate your fellow man on a Job done perfectly and Jamie was without a doubt perfect in my book... Christoph Waltz played the same, cheeky asshole character Reference: Ingorious Bastards & Carnage, only he had much more of a heart in this film, his connection with Jamie was quite remarkable, they were a real team. I think this is the best action movie ever made! A total must see!! Tarantino May have finally done it! People are going to go crazy! There is a reason why this film got the holiday release date, this an instant Classic, if he had release a film lie this 10 years ago, it would have been a little too much for some people, but this is the right movie, for the right time!! But don't forget the reason for the holidays, peace and love everyone!

    Hey, did anyone else also noted there is a poster offering a reward for Edwin Porter for 'train robbery' ?! Loved it!

  • Jeff | June 7, 2012 3:12 PMReply

    There are THREE songs. The Johnny Cash song, The Payback by James Brown and a third one. What's the third one? It plays when the two drawn hands break the chain.

  • JB | June 14, 2012 10:53 AM

    Just listened to The Payback and I cannot hear the part of the song that is playing at the end of the trailer..... sounds like a THIRD song playing to me!

  • that guy | June 8, 2012 6:55 PM

    There are only two songs. Different part of Payback plays at that point.

  • Darius | June 7, 2012 12:24 PMReply

    Just realised something. Christoph Waltz's character's name in Django Unchained is Dr. King Schultz. Jamie Foxx plays Django, as a black slave.

    In the trailer, Schultz offers to free Django in return for his services. Or rather "DR. KING WILL FREE THE SLAVES." Reference to Rev. Martin Luther King perhaps!

    Tarantino at his BEST!

    very nice trailar but my amithab not there in the trailar

  • oogle monster | June 7, 2012 10:34 AM

    You're thinking of The Great Gatsby, good sir. The year of Leo will confuse many.

  • Huffy | June 6, 2012 11:00 PMReply

    Stupid not to focus on DiCaprio in my opinion. Anyone who watched that trailer without any prior knowledge would have no idea if he's even a major character. By the looks of it Calvin Candie is going to be one of those characters that captures the general public's imagination and gets gums flapping; why you wouldn't want to draw attention to that as soon as possible (especially when the role is being played by a huge star against type) is beyond me.

  • Cinematic_high | June 6, 2012 10:26 PMReply

    Yep. Count me in.

  • YES | September 12, 2012 11:58 AM

    YESYYE!!

  • Folarin | June 6, 2012 8:41 PMReply

    Where can I get the script???

  • Glass | June 6, 2012 7:53 PMReply

    lol Will Smith... He's comes across as this safe, out-of-touch, trillionaire, childstar foster now. The connection people had to the Fresh Prince and Mike Lowery is long gone. Good for Jamie Foxx.

  • Hey | June 6, 2012 7:42 PMReply

    What's the song at the end called?

  • Zack | June 7, 2012 12:04 AM

    If you're referring to the second one, it's "The Big Payback" by James Brown.

  • that guy | June 6, 2012 7:35 PMReply

    Very underwhelming trailer. Typical for a Quentin flick though. Was hoping to see more of Leo. The blood spraying across the cotton, oh yes.

  • THAT GIRL | June 10, 2012 4:57 PM

    stupid stupid boy.

  • tere | June 6, 2012 7:35 PMReply

    Leo looks hilarious in this, love it.

  • Edward Davis | June 6, 2012 7:04 PMReply

    My favorite part of Django Unchained is that Hans Landa is in it again. Fey, articulate/eloquent eccentric German. So glad Tarantino decided to include this exact same character again only transport him in time a bit. I guess, it's a prequel, that's cool.

  • manga | June 8, 2012 2:55 AM

    except they are not same, only if you had read the script you'd know that though, in fact their morals couldn't be more different. Sure they got some similarities there is not denying that, but the way dr king schultz acts in the movie script is very unlike landa.

  • Zack | June 6, 2012 3:55 PM

    Nope.

    The D is silent, this trailer was informative.

    LOL

  • Monty | June 6, 2012 3:34 PMReply

    Very excited about the movie, but that trailer was pretty awful.

  • Mike | June 6, 2012 3:20 PMReply

    Could be wrong, but believe he is German.

  • dan | June 6, 2012 3:30 PM

    He is

  • Mass | June 6, 2012 3:20 PMReply

    Fucking taken down :(

    It's supposed to come on at 4:00 PST

  • KitCon | June 6, 2012 3:20 PMReply

    Will Smith turned this down for MIB3?

  • DBE | June 6, 2012 3:34 PM

    No, he turned it down for After Earth

  • BEF | June 6, 2012 3:31 PM

    That was already shot before this started. He probably turned it down to stay squeaky clean.

  • cirkusfolk | June 6, 2012 3:19 PMReply

    As good an actor as Christoph Waltz is and especially since he has a penchant for languages anyway (I think he speaks at least 4) I'm surprised he can't do an American accent, or is his character supposed to be German?

  • Yod | June 7, 2012 12:15 AM

    lol, are you serious? You're asking whether he's playing a German or an American? Instead of posting rubbish comments on every article perhaps you ought to think first.

  • yer | June 6, 2012 4:04 PM

    His char is supposed to be German.

    Two questions:

    1. That was it?

    2. Worst tagline ever?

  • Brad | June 6, 2012 3:07 PMReply

    Um, that ain't no QT trailer.

  • Vito | June 6, 2012 3:07 PMReply

    That's not Django Unchained...
