check out the international trailer for quentin tarantino’s next movie django unchained (it has some different footage than the one released last week).  here’s a film synopsis via sony pictures:

Set in the South two years before the Civil War, DJANGO UNCHAINED stars Academy Award®-winner Jamie Foxx as Django, a slave whose brutal history with his former owners lands him face-to-face with German-born bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz (Academy Award®-winner Christoph Waltz). Schultz is on the trail of the murderous Brittle brothers, and only Django can lead him to his bounty. The unorthodox Schultz acquires Django with a promise to free him upon the capture of the Brittles — dead or alive. 

Success leads Schultz to free Django, though the two men choose not to go their separate ways. Instead, Schultz seeks out the South’s most wanted criminals with Django by his side. Honing vital hunting skills, Django remains focused on one goal: finding and rescuing Broomhilda (Kerry Washington), the wife he lost to the slave trade long ago.

Django and Schultz’s search ultimately leads them to Calvin Candie (Academy Award®-nominee Leonardo DiCaprio), the proprietor of “Candyland,” an infamous plantation where slaves are groomed by trainer Ace Woody (Kurt Russell) to battle each other for sport. Exploring the compound under false pretenses, Django and Schultz arouse the suspicion of Stephen (Academy Award®-nominee Samuel L. Jackson), Candie’s trusted house slave. Their moves are marked, and a treacherous organization closes in on them. If Django and Schultz are to escape with Broomhilda, they must choose between independence and solidarity, between sacrifice and survival… 

Written and directed by Academy Award®-winner Quentin Tarantino, DJANGO UNCHAINED is produced by Stacey Sher, Pilar Savone and Reginald Hudlin. The executive producers are Harvey and Bob Weinstein, Michael Shamberg, Shannon McIntosh, and James Skotchdopole.

MUCH better than the previous trailer, and my top pick for the culprit: sound design. I’ve always loved Tarantino’s soundtracks (a great strength as a filmmaker), and in this version of the trailer Johnny Cash (?) goes on for over a minute (vs. 50 seconds in the old trailer). This allows Tarantino to get us in the western-genre-film mood (which we KNOW he’s about to add a twist to). It sets that tone. When I saw the old trailer last week, my thought was “ugh” and it was all because of that funk track coming on too soon — it made light of slavery a little too quickly. Here, we get that seriousness, those grave themes like injustice and revenge, with a dash of humor, animation, and anachronistic (genre-wise) funk. NOW I’m excited to see the film.

yeah i thought this second trailer was better as well. i do see how the sound elements helped (and yeah it was johnny cash). i also thought the first one was just a little cheesy (“life, liberty and the pursuit of revenge” womp) while this one was cut in a way more worthy of a quality movie (putting leo’s curiosity-attention line closer to the finish was a nice touch on that front).
