Earlier this week the trailer for controversial director Quentin Tarantino’s new film ‘Django Unchained’ was released and greeted with various responses. The film, which is centered around a slave that is freed and goes across the country with a bounty hunter to search for his wife. The role of Django, played by Jamie Foxx, stirred controversy for the film because before he chose it Will Smith, Chris Brown, Idris Elba, Cuba Gooding, Jr. and more were rumored to have turned down the part. Some feel that Tarantino is racist and wonder if the film will be an attempt to get away with blatant racism in a socially acceptable manner. I think that Tarantino’s an amazing filmmaker, so I definitely plan on seeing it. But what do you think? If you haven’t seen the trailer, watch below and vote in the poll/leave a comment!
