Watch: TV Spot for Tarantino's 'Django Unchained' with Sam Jackson
"Gentlemen… come on over!" The Weinstein Company has just unveiled a brand new 60-second TV spot for Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained, his spaghetti western starring Jamie Foxx and Christoph Waltz. I believe this aired during the BET Awards tonight, as a tease during that event. The spot includes just a tidbit of extra footage to top off the trailers we've already seen, including some shots of Samuel L. Jackson lookin' badass—and old—as well as glimpses of Leonardo DiCaprio and Kerry Washington. I also love hearing Ennio Morricone's "Ecstasy of Gold", hopefully hinting at some Morricone in it. Fire it up!
Watch the new 60-sec TV spot for Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained, originally from Yahoo:
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.

Was hoping for a more Spaghetti feel
Brian Sleider on Jul 1, 2012
yea for real, So far from what i've seen this has no spaghetti feel whatsoever

Can you define what a Spaghetti Western is for us please? I'm genuinely curious as I don't believe I've ever seen a film in that genre and up until this went into filming I had never heard of it at all.

They are a subgenre of western defined by the fact that they were Italian productions. There were a lot of similarities to the way they were made, tho. They had a much grittier, realistic look compared to previous westerns. People didn't clasp their hands to the chest and fall over dead when they got shot. Blood would flow. The protagonists in the italian films were often bad guys themselves. Lots of moral gray area going on. As far as the camera work goes, they often would use very dynamic camera angles and snap-zooms and extreme closeups and fast editing to give scenes a bit more excitement because - let's face it - you've got two guys standing in a bar, staring each other down for a couple minutes... it's gonna get boring if it's just a couple flat shots. Lots of extreme close-ups means you get lots of really subtle and understated performances, which was another trait to the genre, especially when it came to the lead and the main villain.

Go buy(not rent, BUY) The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. A spaghetti western is a western movie with an italian feel to it. Kinda obvious. It originated with movies like the one i mentionned earlier, since they were western movies directed by Sergio Leone.

Oh well I guess we'll have to settle for it being just a great movie.
Triangle Dimes on Jul 1, 2012
Yes, because though it has not come out yet, it can already be considered a great movie. Somehow.
JP on Jul 2, 2012
It has more likelihood of being a great movie because it isn't a shitty spaghetti western, so yeah.
Triangle Dimes on Jul 2, 2012
C'mon Dimes, spaghetti westerns aren't shitty. Well, some are, but some are downright amazing! I'm with you on this though, its going to be great!

Oh man. Just give this to me now please.

That one shot where he zooms in on Leo's face IS spaghetti.

Thats scene with blood spraying onto flowers is taken straight from another film - anyone remember what it was?
dom on Jul 2, 2012
Also kind of self-referential, look at how the blood sprays onto the snow at the end of Kill Bill 1.

Flowers = cotton
dom on Jul 2, 2012
Good christ, can the release date come soon enough? This just looks amazing.

I just hope it doesn't to revolve more around action less and less on dialogue. Quentin's movies are always good do to the rich dialogue and long scenes.
Abel Villa on Jul 2, 2012
