Django Unchainedhas released a first full-length trailer, and it's every bit as badass as we were hoping it might be.
Boasting the kind of iconic musical flourishes Quentin Tarantino is famed for (Johnny Cash segueing into James Brown, anyone?), the new trailer shows how Django (Jamie Foxx) and Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz) first made each other's acquaintance, before outlining the bloody task ahead of them.
Schultz will keep Django in his employ until the two of them can bring in a particularly juicy bounty, a set of brothers who just so happen to be Klansmen. In exchange, Schultz will help Django find his wife and rescue her for evil plantation owner, Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio).

As is usually the case with QT's oeuvre, the film oozes with style, from the startling image of some blood-spattered flowers to the whip-smart dialogue. Foxx helps himself to several of the best lines here, our particular favourite being, "kill white folks, and they pay you for it? What's not to like?"
We've got our fingers firmly crossed that this could be the coolest Tarantino film in quite some time, with genre in-jokes seeming to take a back seat to a lean, focused story and a punchy, quotable script. Django Unchained opens in the UK on 18 January 2013.
