Featuring fast cars, fast girls and possibly cinema’s first use of Kurt Russell Eyebrow-cam, this Grindhouse effort was another big, brassy statement of intent from the director, impeccably true to its low-budget, 1970s genre ancestors down to the film stock and typefaces. Once Russell’s maniac motorist puts pedal to metal it’s basically a whirlwind of wheelspins, handbreak turns and car smashes, and boasts more donuts than Chief Wiggum’s top drawer. “Don’t expect plot,” this trailer might be saying – if you could hear it above the din. Do expect Kurt Russell in the coolest jacket this side of Drive and the most irresponsible driving this side of, well, Drive.

Dunno what you are all on about. Do yourselves a favour an install ad-block for chrome/firefox (whatever your using) and never have to watch ads on videos again.
I'd love to have the same BBC style ad-free set up I have at home, but I can't do it on my work computer where I'm watching these :( Still, I'll just have to muddle through the absurdly irritating and ] Ill Manors spot over and over again to get to sweet, gooey Tarantino filling lol. More

Love the look of Django. I just cringe every time i hear Jamie Foxx say "I like the way you die boyy".
e-owners used to call black slaves "boys", so my guess is that Django is just repeating what the redneck said to him. The scene is taken out of context. More

Leo DiCaprio looks like he's having the time of his life in that role. "He is a rambunctious sort aint he?" haha More

It's fairly straight forward, mute computer, press play, read article, by the time you've read the article, promo is over, watch trailer, stop whining. Great article EMPIRE. I've come to the conclusion that I prefer the look of his lower budget stuff. Having said that, the trailer for Inglorious Basterds does it all the justice is deserves, and Death Proof, too much. Can't wait for Django Unchained, it looks immense! Some people have their reservations about Jamie Foxx, I reckon as long as he doesn't have a song on the soundtrack, we'll be laughing! More

While this is a nice conceit for an article,
I bailed out 5 seconds into the second viewing of the trailer for The Pact. If I have to watch a trailer to watch a trailer 8 times, at least it could be 8 different trailers. More

Anyone else noticed that all of Tarantino's titles consist of two words? I wonder if that's a concious choice. More

"Faggot" doesn't appear in this Reservoir Dogs trailer
Three stars for Prometheus, not watching the media they put up. Come on Empire, get it together. More

All I know is that after watching those 8 trailers, I NEVER wanna see or hear about The Pact ever again. More

Unless it's been a really long day and I am suffering the effects of said long day - isn't that the wrong trailer for Jackie Brown as opposed to the one you are referencing in the article? More
