"Say, what is your name, boy?"
At this point, it's quite possible that many are familiar with writer-director Quentin Tarantino's upcoming "Southern" Django Unchained. The upcoming movie's many TV spots, trailers and international trailers have offered the essence of the movie's plot: former slave Django (Jamie Foxx) joins German dentist King Schultz (Christoph Waltz) in the bounty hunting business so he can search for his wife (Kerry Washington), who is now the property of lecherous slave owner Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio). The latest (and last) theatrical trailer for Django Unchained doesn't reveal any secrets, but getting fresh looks at DiCaprio's portrayal of Candie and more shots of Foxx shooting or whipping enemies into submission only offers further proof of why we're so excited to see the movie next month.

If that wasn't enough to excite fans, how about the fact that Django Unchained may be one of Tarantino's last movies? In a recent directors' roundtable put together by The Hollywood Reporter (via The Playlist), Tarantino admitted that he wants "to go out with a terrific filmography" and that he's afraid of diminishing his career if he continues making movies into old age.
I do think it's a young man's game. I really do. I discovered Howard Hawks when I was 15. I saw Rio Bravo and thought it was fantastic. Then I ended up going to some film festival, and I saw His Girl Friday. Then all of a sudden I'm at home, and I notice that a movie called Barbary Coast is being played, and it said in the TV Guide, 'Directed by Howard Hawks,' and so I watched that. Well, those three movies in a row really got me into that director. So I fantasize about another 12-year-old girl or boy, 20 years after I'm dead, seeing one of my movies, liking it. 'Who the hell did that?' Seeing another movie, and then whatever they choose from the pile — 'cause they don't know what's good and what's bad, all right? — I have to keep their d**k hard! I have to keep them wanting to go back for more.
So what does Tarantino think is his worst movie so far? "Death Proof has got to be the worst movie I ever make," Tarantino admitted. "And for a left-handed movie, that wasn't so bad, all right? — So if that's the worst I ever get, I'm good."
