They're only minute-long clips, but when it comes to Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained, we want to eat all the videos like candy. The Film Stage spotted these television clips for the upcoming throwback Western starring Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kerry Washington and Samuel L. Jackson. You won't see much you haven't watched already, but it's interesting to note how they're packaging the violence and humor for a mainstream audience. There's definitely a straight drama and action feel to several portions of the clips -- and we're OK with that if it means more people will get their butts in theater seats on December 25.
In Django, Fox plays a slave turned bounty hunter who teams up with Waltz's Dr. King Schultz to hunt down a ruthless gang of thugs known as the Brittle Brothers. Django also sets out to rescue his wife (Washington) from villainous plantation owner Calvin Candie (DiCaprio).
In related Djano-ness, we have a rerelease trailer for the film that started it all: Sergio Corbucci's classic 1966 spaghetti Western Django. The movie starred the ultra cool Franco Nero in the eponymous role that spawned a series of cheap knockoffs throughout the 1970s. The film helped define the genre of violent, thrilling Westerns that turned the American cowboys on their head. Ain't It Cool reports that Rialto Pictures will be rereleasing the movie. It'll be making the rounds in major cities (find the schedule here), so keep your eyes peeled for those baby blues and a coffin being dragged through a town near you.
