Guns Blaze and Blood Sprays in the International Trailer for ‘Django Unchained’


Quentin Tarantino is known for both labored dialogue and extreme, sudden violence.  Those two elements have always been his main calling cards.  One thing that he has never been associated with is nonstop action.  Though his movies contain their fair share of bloodletting, they aren’t particularly fast moving.  His characters often spend way more time talking to each other than they do shooting at each other.  Nevertheless, the international trailer for Django Unchained shows both the title character and his white liberator to be very trigger happy.

Book Review: Frank C. Matthews - Below the Radar


On July 16th 2011, all Hell suddenly breaks across the five boroughs.  In Queens, a gang leader finds himself on the run from the cops.  In Brooklyn, a young woman narrowly escapes being taken down in a drug bust.  In the South Bronx, a young man flees the scene of a dogfight after engaging in a shootout.  In Staten Island, a successful hustler narrowly escapes being murdered in his own home, only to find himself in a much worse predicament soon after.  In the Bronx, a hooker breaks free of her brutal pimp while carrying his personal fortune in tow.  Finally, things go horribly wrong when an armed robber in Yonkers turns what was supposed to be a routine job into a bloodbath.
