For a movie that aims to exploit a hothouse atmosphere of slavery, the new trailer for Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained looks terribly ... cool, as in temperature, not temperament.
Although we've seen images of Jamie Foxx in the snow before, something about this trailer tips the scales toward a more seasonally-appropriate (for the Northern Hemisphere) mood. Maybe it's the sight of an aged Samuel L. Jackson, with plenty of snowy white hair? Maybe it's the interior shots of Leonardo DiCaprio, looking all cozy?
Trailers are all about selling atmosphere and mood, and with the film's release pinned to December 25, maybe the marketing folks wanted to make Django Unchained look like it's a fine movie for the kids to go see on Christmas Day.
The trailer features new footage, new zingers, and quick appearances by QT faves. Check it out below.
