    synopsis: With the help of his mentor, a slave-turned-bounty hunter sets out to rescue his wife from a brutal Mississippi plantation owner.

    here's the trailer
    [video=youtube;eUdM9vrCbow]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eUdM9vrCbow[/video]

    i had an argument the other day with a Leonardo DiCaprio fan. i told her that it wouldn't do as well as inglourious basterds because of the political environment in the states. With a black president, affirmative action and the rise of white unemployment, i just don't think a revenge film against Mr evil whitey is going to do well in middle America.

    to be honest, i didn't think inglourious basterds was going to do as well as it did because of a similar argument, yet it made $300 mil. i think this time is different though due to what American media focuses on.

    pulpfiction is one of the best films ever made. tarantino is one of the best directors out there, his only film i didn't really like was kill bill 2. i have no doubt that this film will be awesome, but do you think the nature of the film will hurt it at the box office ?

    Disagree. Tanantino films are never blockbusters. They all pretty much do the same in the theaters.

    He has a hardcore fan base that will see anything he does.

    Almost looks too stylized. I'll see it unless the reviews are just awful.

    I was pretty disappointed with Inglorious Basterds... but I'll still watch this new one.

    99% chance it wont be at the theater though.

    made a mistake with inglorious basterds. it was 300mil worldwide, not domestically.

    Total Lifetime Grosses

    [TABLE]
    [TR]
    [TD="width: 40%"]Domestic:[/TD]
    [TD="width: 35%, align: right"] $120,540,719[/TD]
    [TD="width: 25%, align: right"] 37.5%[/TD]

    [TD="width: 25%"] [/TD]
    [/TR]
    [/TABLE]

    still, $120 mil is pretty good for a non superhero film

    it looks like he swapped German with white and Jew with black. i think if you liked basterds, this will be about the same.

    I cannot get over how horrible that trailer was.

    The Johnny Cash and 70s music? The light-hearted theme where this looks like some PG movie? Leonardo is the number 1 star on the planet and this trailer makes him look like a faggot.

    It should have a serious, hardcore theme - you know, what you'd expect in a film about slavery, bounties, revenge, etc?

    Hated Inglorious Basterds. This looks like he just replaced the characters with shittier actors.
