‘Django Unchained’: Quentin Tarantino’s next movie, unleashed in teaser form

Jamie Foxx, “Unchained.” (Weinstein Co.)

What do you get when you combine a quest for vengeance with a spaghetti Western, Jamie Foxx on a chain gang, some bloody cotton, Mr. Friendly from “Lost” and Leonardo DiCaprio sipping out of what appears to be a coconut?

You get the first teaser trailer for “Django Unchained,” the next film from Quentin Tarantino which can, perhaps, be best described as a pre-Civil War-era “Kill Bill” with Christoph Waltz switching from “Inglourious Basterds” Nazi to German bounty hunter living in the South.

Whatever you call it, the two-minute clip, released online this evening, has Tarantino’s gleefully bloody fingerprints all over it. And that means attention must be paid.

Watch the clip below, contemplate it, then remember that you won’t actually be able to see the movie until Christmas Day, otherwise known as the holiday where we celebrate Jamie Foxx’s ability to bust some caps in the backsides of white slave owners. Well, that and the birth of Jesus and generosity of Santa.

Oh, and one more thing: as Foxx reminds us regarding his character’s name, the “D” is silent.

When she isn’t at a movie theater or writing about movies, Jen Chaney is ... um ... probably at home, watching a movie.
