The new trailer for Quinten Tarantino's "Django Unchained" dropped today, featuring Jamie Foxx as a former slave-turned-bounty hunter and Leonardo DiCaprio as the colorful villain, a slave owner in possession of Foxx's wife (Kerry Washington, who we love). Christoph Waltz, who won an Oscar playing Tarantino's last colorful villain in "Inglorious Basterds," plays Foxx's partner-in-crime.

Spaghetti Western fans will recognize the Django moniker from the Franco Nero-starring film, but the character has been used in many unofficial sequels since its initial release. Whether Foxx will share the characteristics of the tight-lipped Django of yore has yet to be determined. But the original "Django," and many of its sequels, are known for their over-the-top violence, making Django the perfect surogate for Tarantino's bloody machinations.

"Django Unchained" is scheduled to open on Christmas Day. Are you pumped for another wordy, Tarantino bloodfest? Or will you skip this in favor of my family friendly fare.
