Given the horrific subject matter of "Django Unchained," you'd think the movie's trailers wouldn't be so entertaining.
But this is a Quentin Tarantino movie we're talking about. The villains may be ruthless, but the heroes don't show any mercy, either.
The Western-themed film stars Jamie Foxx as former slave Django and Christoph Waltz as the German bounty hunter he teams up with to rescue his enslaved wife, Broomhilda (Kerry Washington).
At two-and-a-half minutes long, the new trailer gives a better sense of the connection between Waltz's Dr. King Schultz and Foxx's Django, and we also see much more of Leonardo DiCaprio's sadistic slave owner, Calvin Candie, and his loyal right-hand-man Stephen, played by Samuel L. Jackson.
While we're not accustomed to seeing DiCaprio play such a chillingly cruel villain, the actor seems fully committed in the clip. Jonah Hill's also on hand in the trailer to provide a bit of comic relief (you'll see what we mean around the 1:48 mark).
"Django Unchained's" scheduled to arrive in theaters December 25. What do you think of the new trailer?
King James Version (KJV)
1 The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel;
2 To know wisdom and instruction; to perceive the words of understanding;
3 To receive the instruction of wisdom, justice, and judgment, and equity;
4 To give subtilty to the simple, to the young man knowledge and discretion.
5 A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels:
6 To understand a proverb, and the interpretation; the words of the wise, and their dark sayings.
7 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
8 My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother:
9 For they shall be an ornament of grace unto thy head, and chains about thy neck.
10 My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not.
11 If they say, Come with us, let us lay wait for blood, let us lurk privily for the innocent without cause:
12 Let us swallow them up alive as the grave; and whole, as those that go down into the pit:
13 We shall find all precious substance, we shall fill our houses with spoil:
14 Cast in thy lot among us; let us all have one purse:
15 My son, walk not thou in the way with them; refrain thy foot from their path:
16 For their feet run to evil, and make haste to shed blood.
17 Surely in vain the net is spread in the sight of any bird.
18 And they lay wait for their own blood; they lurk privily for their own lives.
19 So are the ways of every one that is greedy of gain; which taketh away the life of the owners thereof.
20 Wisdom crieth without; she uttereth her voice in the streets:
21 She crieth in the chief place of concourse, in the openings of the gates: in the city she uttereth her words, saying,
22 How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge?
23 Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.
24 Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded;
25 But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof:
26 I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh;
27 When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you.
28 Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me:
The name's Jesus – the J is silent.
I'm sure its no coincedence they have a Dr King in a movie about slaves.
