Here's one last victory lap for "Django Unchained." Last night, the film took home two awards which were both a bit of a surprise -- Best Supporting Actor for Christoph Waltz and Best Original Screenplay for Quentin Tarantino. But just before the festivities got underway in California, over the weekend a new video for the hit slavery/vegeance/western/comedy/action movie arrived, mixing up all those familiar ingredients into one musically charged whole.

Here's one last victory lap for "Django Unchained." Last night, the film took home two awards which were both a bit of a surprise -- Best Supporting Actor for Christoph Waltz and Best Original Screenplay for Quentin Tarantino. But just before the festivities got underway in California, over the weekend a new video for the hit slavery/vegeance/western/comedy/action movie arrived, mixing up all those familiar ingredients into one musically charged whole.

A video for "The Payback" -- a remix of James Brown's famous jam featuring verses from "Untouchable" by Tupac -- which featured in the film, has dropped online. And it's pretty much a sizzle reel of the movie, with lots of footage, some graphics, and not much else. But we will say it was better than that Bond montage at the Academy Awards. So if you want to savor the film's two Oscars, this is a pretty good way to do it. Turn it up, and check it out below. [Huffington Post]
