Django Unchained trailer, poster and Quentin Tarantino
Quentin Tarantino is bringing the goods on this one. The director wrote the film as well. That film is Django Unchained. Jamie Foxx plays a slave who becomes a bounty hunter. With the help of his mentor (Christoph Waltz), he sets out on a mission to find and rescue his wife (Kerry Washington) from an evil plantation owner (Leonardo Dicaprio). Check out the trailer below and read a cool technique Tarantino implemented onset.
On the Jimmy Kimmel show Tuesday, Jaime Foxx says Tarantino is a "a cinematic genius". Foxx explained that the director would play specific songs on set to evoke specific emotions for each scene. I've never heard of a director doing this, and I thought it was very interesting. I've read about actors who have different techniques in preparing for a role, but never a director preparing a cast, quite like this. I think I'll be seeing this on opening weekend, how about you?
