Get this post on your screen, let’s watch the Django Unchained trailer! It’s Tarantino and Leo! (And Jamie Foxx… whatever).
Watch the trailer, then we’ll talk:
Looks awesome, right?
So last week, I wrote a status update about how I needed to get out of retail before Django Unchained gets released on Blu-Ray/DVD, because I can’t handle people’s mispronunciations. If you’ve never worked at a cinema, video store, or sold DVD’s to people, let me run you through a little experience called ‘that time Burlesque got released.’ You would not believe how many people don’t know how to pronounce that word.
Firstly, I generally assume that when people are purchasing new release DVD’s that they’ve already seen the film at the cinema. So I don’t actually understand how they missed the fact that they say the word ‘burlesque’ all the goddamn time throughout the film, and it’s mentioned in pretty much every song. Here are just some of the mispronunciations:
Bass (like the fish)-a-lisk
I don’t know what letters these people were looking at, but they sure as fuck weren’t the ones on the cover. You know what I like to do? Replace the word ‘burlesque’ with those mispronunciations in the songs on the soundtrack:
Get your hands up, show me how you burr-sah-leek!
Welcome to bass-a-lisk!
Anyway, basically what I’m saying is that while I’m glad that Tarantino put in the part in the trailer where he goes ‘Django. The J is silent,’ I’d still be willing to bet that when it gets released there’ll be a whole lot of ‘Hi, do youse have Duh-Jango/Dee-jango/Djungo/any other combination of letters anywhere nearby.’ That’s the end of my rant for the day. Tell your friends about this blog so I can make money off it and you can save my sanity.
About the trailer, though. I’m pretty excited about it, although I’m probably more excited about the Great Gatsby trailer, which surprises me. I was expecting it to be the other way round, but the heart wants what it wants, and it really wants to see that 20’s party scene that looks like the party scene from Romeo + Juliet.
That being said, I’m interested to see Leo be the villain, because I feel like that never happens.
What do you think? Are you excited about Django Unchained? Are you more excited for this or Gatsby? Both? Neither? Let me know!
