What’s That Song in the ‘Django Unchained’ Trailer?

Django Unchained
The Weinstein Co.

Bonus! There are actually two songs in the ‘Django Unchained‘ trailer! The trailer for Quentin Tarantino‘s next just officially hit the ‘net and if you’re trying to figure out what those awesome songs are, we’ve got the answer.

Tarantino is more than just a master of filmmaking — he’s got impeccable music taste to boot. The trailer for ‘Django Unchained’ starts off with Johnny Cash’s “Ain’t No Grave” and segues into the more Tarantino-esque use of “The Payback” by James Brown.

Using Cash to start things off sets a fairly standard Western tone, but when that James Brown track hits, you know things are about to get fantastic. The trailer switches from a more somber tone to a more energetic vibe, with all the snappy action and dialogue we’ve come to love from Tarantino.

The film follows Django (Jamie Foxx), a slave freed by a bounty hunter (Christoph Waltz), who needs his help to catch a trio of criminals. In return, the bounty hunter teaches Django how to harness his rage and kick some serious ass to find his wife, who’s been sold to a menacing plantation owner named Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio).

Check out the trailer and we’ve embedded the two featured tracks below. ‘Django Unchained’ hits theaters this Christmas.
