Quentin gets shit real in the south.
DJANGO TRAILER LIKE WHOA
So, so much to like in that trailer. Johnny Cash. Waltz slightly annoyed that he has to gun down some slavedriving assholes. That James Brown howl as Django casts off his ragged cloak. Django's head passing through the noose for a second as they ride through town. The big Leo reveal. That blood-splattered cotton. Django kicking ass dressed as Gainsborough's Blue Boy (or something). "Kill white folks and they pay you for it? What's not to like?"
As much as I'd like Tarantino to do something along the lines of Jackie Brown again, I'm pretty damn excited for this.
Man, I must be a miserable sonofabitch in my life right now. That did little for me as a follow up to Inglourious Basterds. Something about the Kill Bill/Basterds homage aesthetic jars with the storyline too much for me.
It's not a follow up to Inglorious Basterds. It's a trailer.
Very good question. After IB, I wouldn't be entirely surprised if an anachronistic song choice appears in this, but I'm not expecting a ton of them. Expect a lot of spaghetti western and blaxploitation cues, as well as a healthy dose of all things Morricone.
Speaking of which, I wonder if he will try again to get Ennio to record some original pieces for him? I know he wanted him to do it for Basterds, but the timing didn't work out.
Although the scene with Candie in his club could have indeed been great, and the narrator could have been quite amusing, the Scotty portion was always the oddest bit for me. It seemed an effort to flesh out Broomhilda's story, but it didn't feel altogether vital.
It was a bit of detour, but it did give us a great introduction to Candie. Also kind of funny that Jonah Hill will be in the movie after all, but won't be playing that character.
Also read that one of the characters in this movie will be related to someone in the Tarantino universe, although he kept the identity of that character (and who they're related to) a surprise.
Knowing Tarantino, it really could be any character from his films. Also, I see he's still intending on doing Kill Bill: Volume Three (aka Kill The Bride) at some point in the coming years as well.
...and ya know what? If he really did come up with it between limo bong hits, I'd kinda love that even more.
What I'd do to have a sesh with QT....
Apparently Tarantino has rewritten the ending: http://zeenews.india.com/entertainment/movies/tarantino-rewrote-django-unchained-ending-at-last-minute_115404.htm
I thought the ending wasn't particularly strong either, so I'm interested in seeing what else he comes up with.

The ending, as in the final showdown? Or the ending as in after the final showdown. If it's after the final showdown, yeah, it could have been more iconic. If it's changing the final showdown itself, I am freaking out. Because that had awesome symbolic power.
I'm not sure, but I think he meant the ending as in the ending after the showdown. Foxx saysWarning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
"On the spur of the moment, he rewrote the end of the movie. Blows up the house and says, 'My ending doesn't work.' We're like, 'What are you going to do?' 'Just give me a second.' He's walking on the rubble like this, 'Okay, I got it"
, so at least that's probably still intact. But maybe Tarantino decided to punch things up a bit?
So I found the interview where Foxx specifically mentions a change to the ending. I don't quite remember the dialog from the scrip, but he says Tarantino came up with it on the fly, so I'll assume the showdown has been punched up a bit so thatWarning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Stephen and Django have more of a confrontation.
Now obviously the clip contains spoilers, so just a heads up. Also, the sound is very low, so turn your speakers up. Skip to the 7:20 mark:
