In the past two months, I think I’ve seen a trailer (any trailer) for Django Unchained more often than glimpses of my own face in a mirror. (Which is only a good thing, and in so many respects.) The numbers keep piling up, since yet another glimpse at Quentin Tarantino‘s next photoplay made its way online, this one a collection of mostly new footage peppered in with those bits many already love. God, DiCaprio just looks better and better each time something else comes in.
But you don’t need my words, so go ahead and watch the preview below (via Yahoo!):
A second new item has come in, and I’d wager it’s even more worthwhile than what’s right above. As it were, ThePlaylist nabbed a listing for Django‘s soundtrack, going to prove that Tarantino has a fascinating mixture of classical scores and new tunes up his sleeve here. Along with the requisite tracks by Ennio Morricone — he’s even composed a new one for the film, titled “Ancora Qui” — and other spaghetti western composers (the original Django theme included), we have original songs by Rick Ross and John Legend. A barn burner!

Set in the South two years before the Civil War, DJANGO UNCHAINED stars Academy Award(R)-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(R)-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.
Django Unchained arrives on December 25th.
With this extra trailer and list of songs, are expectations for the film increasing more and more?
In the case of evaluating David Cronenberg, — or at least forming the sort of career narrative seemingly essential to auteurist analysis — it’s inevitable to propose something of a rupture within his oeuvre: the very evident graduation from grindhouse to arthouse, and, with it, an ascension from body to mind. What dictated these labels […]

Writing about the films of Robert Bresson usually begins by informing reader that his films must be discussed through a trance of hushed tones and quiet veneration. There is no room for rushed judgement or quick-witted observations; Bresson makes Serious Art, as opposed to Hollywood directors who do not. There are the key phrases to […]
