Christmas day can’t come soon enough at this point, but what I take away from this trailer is how diabolically evil Leonardo DiCaprio’s performance looks to be. What I like about his career, and despite his legit movie star status, is a feeling that he’s a character actor at heart. Looking back on films like What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, Catch Me If You Can, Blood Diamond, even Total Eclipse, shows an actor always game for inhabiting characters with accents, tics and mannerisms far removed from his own. And it makes me especially excited to see what he does with Jay Gatsby next year. The thought of DiCaprio’s sleazy Calvin Candie holding Django’s wife prisoner at a plantation he’s named Candieland? It’ll be fun watching Django punish him.
But I digress, this trailer is balls out:
