Django Unchained Trailer

Christmas can't come any sooner. Quentin Tarantino's latest movie Django Unchained comes out this holiday season and the first trailer premiered today. There have been many news stories of who's in and who's out but the principal cast is set and it looks amazing. Here's a brief synopsis.
Set in the South two years before the Civil War, DJANGO UNCHAINED stars 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 (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 andSchultz's search ultimately leads them to Calvin Candie (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 (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...

I'm definitely excited, and this trailer is definitely a step in the right direction when it comes providing some plot details as well as some action. We've hit a time where movie trailers are teased and lack any information to get you excited as to not spoil you. I thought this was just right, and how can you go wrong when you have Johnny Cash and James Brown in the same trailer.
