The "D" Is Silent...

The first trailer for Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained hit the web today. Quite coincidentally, I've been watching a lot of vintage Spaghetti Westerns* over the last couple of weeks, including several that were clearly among Tarantino's inspirations for his forthcoming homage, starring Jaimie Foxx, Chistophe Waltz, Don Johnson and Leonardo DeCaprio.

Keep an eye out for the original "Django," Franco Nero, in the new trailer above. Really looking forward to this one!

* Specifically: The Grand Duel, Keoma, A Bullet For The General, Django Kill!, and Death Rides A Horse.

Have you seen The Good, The Bad, The Weird? It feels very much like a western, even though it is set in the 30s in Manchuria.

Can't wait to hear what good ol' Spike Lee will say to this one. ;)

Love most of Tarantino's flicks,
