'Django Unchained' is already ramping up its marketing campaign despite not hitting theaters until Christmas. Last night during the BET Awards, Quentin Tarantino and The Weinstein Co. debuted an extended :60 TV spot for the film with some new footage (including new looks at Leonardo DiCaprio and Samuel L. Jackson).
The trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Django Unchained’ showed us something we haven’t seen before: A sadistic side of Leonardo DiCaprio. Oh, we’ve see DiCaprio unhinged before. Scorsese taps into an animalistic side of the Oscar-nominated actor at regular intervals. (Rent ‘Shutter Island’ or ‘Gangs of New York’ for examples.) But the Leo on display in Tarantino’s film is … different. He’s crazy. And he’s loving it.
The trailer for 'Django Unchained' is magnificent. Any film by Quentin Tarantino is a reason for movie fans to celebrate, but a Quentin Tarantino movie about a freed slave turned bounty hunter who goes after the scumbags who stole his wife? Let's get in line right now. Seriously. Let's do it. Since we're so impatient for a film that's still six months away, we took a frame-by-frame look through the trailer.
As quickly as style-conscious men (including all of those documented in Morgan Spurlock's crazy new documentary 'Mansome') devoured 'Mad Men' for its overabundance of striped bow ties and fedoras, so too are they going after 'The Great Gatsby.' It turns out, though, that men don't have to look too far to copy Leonardo DiCaprio's suave swagger because it all came from Brooks Brothers.
Going by this new footage, it seems that the rumors were true and that the first trailer for Quentin Tarantino's 'Django Unchained' will be playing with 'Prometheus.' But if you don't want to wait until Friday, there's some footage online now, and it seems likely we'll get the full trailer tomorrow.
