Django Unchained
Cape Town – The first trailer for Quentin Tarantino's hotly tipped Western adventure Django Unchained has been released. This is Tarantino's first movie since the release of Inglourious Basterds in 2009.

The film stars Jamie Foxx as a slave named Django who is taken in and mentored by bounty hunter Dr King Schultz (played by Christoph Waltz, the scene stealing Col Hans Landa from Inglourious Basterds) who promises to help Django free his wife and exact his revenge against those who sold her into slavery to an evil plantation owner, Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio).

Trademark witticisms

The two and a half minute trailer is filled with Tarantino's trademark witticisms, memorable characters and action scenes that promise plenty of bloody violence.

It opens with a scene of chained and scarred slaves being led across the desert as Johnny Cash's mournful rendition of Ain't No Grave (Gonna Hold This Body Down) before Dr Schultz encounters them in the night to acquire a  specific "specimen".

After freeing Django from slavery, Dr Schultz trains him to be a bounty hunter and help him track down the Brittle brothers, who captured Django's wife Broomhilda (Kerry Washington) and sold her into slavery.

Their search leads them to the plantation of the ruthless and arrogant Calvin Candie, in DiCaprio's first real role as a villain.

Django Unchained is due for release in US cinemas on 25 December, and on 13 January in South Africa.
