The new trailer for Django Unchained, the latest offering from director Quentin Tarantino, isn’t afraid to toss a little bloodshed in the audience’s general direction. The newest clip to hit the internet showcases Tarantino’s penchant for stylish, over-the-top violence. As such, you might want to make sure you’re in pleasant company if you decide to watch this clip at work.
In order to lighten the somewhat dark and sinister storyline, Tarantino has seemingly injected some much-needed humor into the production. Although the trailer is far from hilarious, there’s a dark wit on display that suggests Django Unchained isn’t taking itself too seriously.
Internet Movie Database describes the plot as follows:
“Former dentist, Dr. King Schultz, buys the freedom of a slave, Django, and trains him with the intent to make him his deputy bounty hunter. Instead, he is led to the site of Django’s wife who is under the hands of Calvin Candie, a ruthless plantation owner.”
Jamie Foxx stars as the titular character, a man who will stop at nothing to rescue his wife from the clutches of Leonardo DiCaprio’s villainous plantation owner. Along the way, Django will meet up with a number of interesting characters portrayed by Quentin Tarantino regular Samuel L. Jackson, Christoph Waltz, Amber Tamblyn, Dexter’s James Remar, Death Proof’s Zoe Bell, and, last but certainly not least, Jonah Hill.
What’s next for Quentin Tarantino following the release of Django Unchained? Fans are holding out hope that it could be Kill Bill Vol. 3, which may concern itself with the Bride’s life following the adventures of the first two features. In 2009, the director told MTV News that the third Kill Bill movie would be the film he tackled after his next movie. With Django Unchained preparing to hit theaters, there’s always the possibility the third installment is right around the corner.
