Watch the trailer for Tarantino's 'Django Unchained'

Quentin Tarantino's much-anticipated new film Django Unchained gets a trailer today. The "western" is Tarantino's first flick since his expansive (and bloody) war-drama Inglourious Basterds, whose undisputed star (and Academy Award-winning), Christoph Waltz, appears here as "a German dentist turned bounty hunter". Always the way.

Django Unchained is set in the Deep South, and follows Django (Foxx), a freed slave who treks across America with Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz), a German dentist turned bounty hunter. Together, they try to retrieve Django's wife Broomhilda (Kerry Washington) from the charming but sadistic Francophile plantation owner Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his band of ruthless slavers.

Blood splashing on cotton? Something for the Tarantino students. The movie's due for release at the end of the year. Hopefully they'll keep the trailers to a minimum! (*cough* Prometheus).
