    Ugh!!! Harvey, why don't you set your face on fire so I can stomp on it, you dick! *flips table* EDIT: Yay, thanks for the re-embed, Alex. This looks so awesome, and man...DiCaprio sure enjoys being an ass for once. He's gonna chew up every scene he gets, I love it! I really dig the overstylized, clean style and the almost Baz Luhrman-esque costumes. It's different for a western, but awesome!
    • That is the most extreme reaction to a trailer being taken down that I have ever seen.
      • SuicidalOptimist
        Now, imagine how I handle real problems. ūüėČ
        • Then I pity you.

    I was able to watch it. Looks fantastic, love the look and feel of it. I'm down.
    • Jericho
      its also sort of a Pulp Fiction feel to it.....

    It just played for me fine. ?  Looks great, I love the introduction to Waltz's character in the woods, lol. "Well, fine then..."
  • Isildur_of_Numenor
    I am not going to watch this trailer. I watched all trailers for Inglourious Basterds and my expectations were incredibly high, I thought it will be one of my all-time faves - instead it ended with a 9 out of 10, just a point but I really was dying for this film; still need to re-watch it though. So no more trailers for me, especially for Django Unchained.
    • Doyle
      Hahahaha. I liked this comment. "My expectations were incredibly high..... instead a 9 out of 10"
      • Isildur_of_Numenor
        As I said, I was expecting IB to be one of my all time favorites. So there is a big difference (at least for me) between a 9 and that. 
        • ColtNoir
  • That looks really good will wait to see the trailer again before prometheus
  • They must have put up a new link because I was able to watch it just fine :) I'm excited!
  • About what I would expect from QT
  • Moon
    The photos had me worried but this looks really fun.
  • Nielsen700
    This looks awesome, but I expected more.
  • Check our webpage Cinescondite, you will find it in HD quality and with spanish subtitles. At least is something until they release the official version.
  • Mmmmmmmmmmmm
    For fuck sakes, delete this, wait till after 7:30pm, and lets try this again lol smh
  • Watched it on Cinescondite. ¬†Good stuff, but I wasn't overly impressed. ¬†I'm sure it'll be great, but I'm still scorned by the casting of Jamie Foxx. ¬†I am not a fan. ¬†Would've liked to see Idris.
    • Xerxexx
       Idris would have been some inspired casting.
      • Actually inspired casting, would be Jamie Foxx instead of Idris Elba who is suggested by everyone, so in my opinion this is more interesting casting.
        • Xerxexx
          ...Foxx is sorta capalble, he was great in Colletral...but the guy isn't that great. Sure Elba is the go to black actor these days. I for one would have loved to see Derek Luke or Anthony Mackie. I'm sure Foxx will do good here, he seems to be enjoying the role.
    • John
       I disagree. Jamie is a MUCH bigger and more PROVEN actor than Idris whatever his name is. But to tell you the truth I would have much rather seen Will Smith star than EITHER of them.
      • Dominic A
        Idris Elba  most famous for "The Wire "  Will Smith makes the character too comic . better to get someone more known for his dramatic roles ; then the comedy is ironic . Maybe Idris is TOO serious  ...
        • grimjob
          Its true that Will Smith is more known for comedic roles, but when he does dramatic he's really damn good. Watch Seven Pounds, its a heavy film but he's fantastic.
  • kinks!
    This movie looks EPIC! Cannot wait for this movie, officially my most anticipated of 2012.
  • DaveLister_JMC
    OK. Now it's back. It looks like a solid Tarantino effort. That's no surprise really. The thing is... I'm definitely going to see this sooner or later; but this trailer didn't fire me up all that much. It's not the first time QT has anachronistically used 70's music in a period piece; but this time it really took me out of the proceedings. It's only the first trailer so I'm not too concerned. DiCaprio looked to be enjoying his villain role and Christoph Waltz is fun to watch; but I hope that Jamie Foxx has a better showing than the quick hits from this trailer indicate. Overall, I'm not worried but I'm, also, not chomping at the bit for it to come out. 
  • I love the look of this. Christoph Waltz looks excellent again, I am pretty sure everything he does is gold.¬†
    • Conrad Williams
      you'd be surprised. "Water for Elephants"? bah!
      • ccoltmanm
        Agreed. He was a bit off in Water for Elephants. Very disappointed. He just has that accent and a unique smile. 
  • grimjob
    Sweet. Looks like it'll be a damn good time, so excited!! Excellent use of James Brown! "Get ready you mutha', for the big Payback!"
    • I don't think you can ever go wrong with James Brown! I think the movie looookss goooooooooooooooooood.
      • grimjob
        Absolutely! And Guy Ritchie's use of him in Lock, Stock,... was fucking PERFECT!
  • 100 bucks says the guy wont give Django his freedom. And this starts the second half of the movie.
    • I'll bet you a hundred bucks that you don't have a hundred bucks.¬†
  • Now I can't wait for the Red Band trailer. ¬†
    Simply Outstanding. 
  • germss
    Being honest, I wasn't that excited for this movie before, and this trailer didn't do much to help. Overall I haven't been a huge fan of Tarantino's stuff since Pulp Fiction. I'm waiting for him to mature as a filmmaker, but each time we still get the purposeful cheese, campy homage style movies. I'll end up enjoying this on some level, but there are other films I'm more excited for. 
    • Al
      But if he "matured" he wouldn't be Tarantino. So he doesn't have meaning and purpose into his films. They still have great characters, great dialog, beautiful staging, all the while he doesn't just blend genres, but also moods. He really gets that a film can have humor, action, suspense, and romance all at the same time. I'd say this is a mature filmmaker.  But of course, the way he approaches subjects is different. I get that. But there are other people to look to if you want a film to say something. Long live QT. 
      • Moutchy
         So agree with you here! Tarantino's movies are fun flicks! If you don't enjoy that kind of movies, there are other filmmakers who make serious engaged profound pompous complex dramas.
    • Squiggly_P
      He made a mature film already. It was called Jackie Brown. No one liked it because everyone is stupid. It's his best film. The fact that people can't see that is sad. Which isn't to say his other movies are crap or anything. I like everything he's done. Even Death Proof. Guy knows how to write effective tension and interesting characters. The stories themselves almost don't even matter. More about the characters and how they bang against each other.
  • DoomCanoe
    so sweet
  • 'I like the way you die boy.'
  • Oh man, can't wait
  • Ic3
    haha, I love it...the orig. Django at the Bar (Franco Nero)
  • David Banner
    "What's your name?" "Django...the....(?)" Django the what? I can't make it out? "Deal..."-something??

      "the D is silent"
      • You can never silence the "D" Cmon Rage Cage!
  • LosZombies
    Im really excited to see DiCaprio in this! He's gonna be so badass! XD
    • grimjob
      Hell yes! But damn I wish Russell would've stayed. I'd love to see those two play off each other as villains.
      • LosZombies
        Russell's loss man... Russell's loss. :/
        • grimjob
          Very true. He needed this, I believe. But his loss is our loss as well.
  • badarinteminabarnisyra
    Looks interesting i must say. But imagine the hero saying "Kill black folks and they pay you for it. Whats not to like about it" instead of "white". The film wouldn't even have had made it to the theatre.
    • ¬†Kill black people and they pay you for it is called the Police.. bdump dump. But seriously slavery is a topic that has not been handled or conveyed that well in the theater so this should be interesting
    • Angela
      Maybe if we lived in an alternate world where the Europeans were trading slaves with Africa in the 18th century?
  • FilmBuff322
    uhhh this looks lame as hell. PASS.
    • Guest
      Would have to seriously disagree my friend...
  • racquetman
    Since this is Tarantino, the trailer must have shown every action scene (all 2 1/2 minutes worth).  The rest will be a few guys sitting around in a saloon discussing the pros and cons of cow dung as a fertilizer for an hour and a half (or some other irrelevant topic) with some mood music playing in the background.  
    • Ryderup
      remove all teh action and yiu just descibed a kevin smith film!
  • Bazzmosis
    Looks so so...Tarantino has not made a good film since Jackie Brown.
  • Yeah that looks pretty good. I'm gonna have to check this out now.
  • happy camper
    Well i was a little worried, but this looks super campy and i can dig that. I love QT, but i was hoping for a little more of a gritty drama than action/dark comedy. But no doubt im going to the theater for this.
  • jungle jim
    his films always end up a little more serious and dark than the trailers make them out to be. inglourious basterds seemed like it was going to be a lighthearted movie mainly just about brad pitt but it turned out to be a lot more complex, so i see the same thing coming from this film
  • Phantomrockcity
    Pure awesomeness. Pure entertainment this film will be. Leo's accent reminds me of Tommy Lee Jones in JFK.
  • Exquisite.¬†
  • JohnMcBoss
    Looks great, can't wait to check this one out.
  • So is Waltz Tarantino's new go to guy? ¬†If so... I need to see him and Samuel L. do a QT flick and destroy the screen... a la Jules and Vincent.
    read the script, gave me the chills seeing the actors say some of those lines. and you have never, ever seen a film like this.  slave-era south has never been portrayed like this on film, ever.  african-americans are treated as sub-humans down to the most gruesome detail; Leo must have 200+ n-words in his lines, and they all end with a hard "-er."  the slaves are treated like horses.  the attractive female slaves are even called 'ponies.'
    • Angela
      Have you seen "Mandingo" or "Goodbye Uncle Tom"?
  • ………………..
    I for one am very glad that Will Smith wasn't able to participate. Just from the trailer alone people would have flashbacks of God-awful "Wild Wild West" so Jamie will do this justice just as long as QT doesn't make him say the "n-word" a record number of times.
