The first trailer is now online and can be seen below.Jamie Foxx stars as Django, a slave who is rescued from a chain gang by German bounty hunter Dr King Schultz (Christoph Waltz).

Country Music Television (Cmt) is taking aim at another obsession of “country” culture: Law-enforcement. Sheriffs and bounty hunters are joining the ranks of Stetson-wearing crooners in a pair of new shows, set to begin debuting late this year.
But you know how the tastes of the mainstream run: They like the same old shit, just a bit different. Cmt will oblige.
The three main stars of the upcoming line-up will be faces all-too-familiar to the self-parody that country culture has become. Give a guess – it ain’t that hard.
Did you say Larry the Cable Guy, Jeff Foxworthy and Bill Engvall? Well congratulations, you just stated the obvious, and you’re damn right. The voices for the animated series, creatively called Bounty Hunters, are redneck comedy’s top talents.
Bounty Hunters will premiere in 2013. I don’t know the plot, but it doesn’t take a media guru to figure it out. »

The action movie. It’s my bread and butter. Give me 90 minutes of arse-kicking over the latest critically acclaimed drama any day. But between the constant stream of new action flicks coming out of Hollywood via for your attention alongside a barrage of straight to DVD releases it can be hard to find the really Good action movies these days – you can’t even rely on the big name action stars to provide solid action entertainment these days!

Let me start by saying that if I had to be tracked down and nabbed by some fortune-seeking mercenary, I wouldn’t mind if my pursuer was seven-time WWE Women’s Champion Trish Stratus as seen in her action movie debut Bounty Hunters.
Originally entitled Bail Enforcers, the 2011 film finds a group of down-on-their-luck bounty hunters, led by Jules Taylor (Stratus), hitting the jackpot one night when they pick up an informant with $100,000 on his head. But their world is quickly turned upside down when a gangland boss (Joe Rafla) offers them a million dollars in exchange for their bounty.

Hot chicks kicking a large amount of cinematic behind — that’s the sort of tasty recipe that goes down well in my neck of the proverbial woods. Director Patrick McBrearty’s “Bail Enforcers” has been magically transformed into “Bounty Hunters” for its upcoming DVD release, which will arrive here in the States towards the tail end of February. The film looks like a delirious amount of fun, particularly for those of us who don’t mind a little skin with their ass kickery. Behold, mortals, the official synopsis: A group of down-on-their-luck bounty hunters hit the jackpot one night when they pick up an informant with a hundred thousand dollar bounty on his head. But their world is turned upside down when a mob boss offers them one million dollars in exchange for the informant. When they refuse, the mafia unleashes a trio of assassins on them who use all »
