First Trailer for Tarantino's 'Django Unchained' Playing 'Prometheus'
Briefly: Word from a Variety editor named Stuart Oldham (via twitter) is that the first official teaser trailer for Quentin Tarantino's spaghetti western Django Unchained will be arriving very soon. In fact, he reports a scoop that "the first Django Unchained teaser will play in front of Prometheus." Even more good reason to go see Ridley Scott's return to sci-fi, arriving in theaters on June 8th. The Weinstein Company teased 7 minutes of the very first footage from Django to press in Cannes (myself included - video blog here) which means they're getting ready to unleash this, and I cant wait to see what the first teaser looks like. We'll definitely keep you updated and will let you know if this is officially confirmed in the next few weeks.
Django Unchained is written and directed by Quentin Tarantino, who last brought us Inglourious Basterds. In the film, the Django (Jamie Foxx) is a freed slave, who under the tutelage of a German bounty hunter (Christoph Waltz) becomes a bounty hunter himself, and together they track down his slave wife (Kerry Washington) and liberate her from the evil plantation owner (Leonardo DiCaprio). The cast includes Samuel Jackson, Dennis Christopher, Walton Goggins, M.C. Gainey, Don Johnson, Anthony LaPaglia, RZA, James Russo, James Remar, Todd Allen and Franco Nero. Shooting is just wrapping and The Weinstein Company currently has the film scheduled for release starting December 25th, Christmas Day, the end of this year.
