Sukiyaki Western Django clip featuring Tarantino

Auteur Japanese director Takashi Miike has his new film Sukiyaki Western Django coming out soon in the US (August 29th), after playing the festival circuit. Now thanks to our friends over at we have a clip featuring Mr Quentin Tarantino (an odd casting choice if I ever saw one). Check it out below:

Now as a loyal fan of both director Takashi Miike and Quentin Tarantino, obviously to see them two work together in any way, shape or form makes me extremely happy. But I will admit Tarantino looks out of place here, I think he hasn’t got it through his head yet that he isn’t an actor…he’s a writer/director, and a damn good one at that. With the exception of his adequate performance in From Dusk Till Dawn (which he wrote the screenplay for, so it was hardly a stretch to pull off his own character) he has proven himself to not have any acting skills. Having said that having heard details about Sukiyaki Western Django, perhaps this odd casting choice suits the loppy feel of the film.

The clip has me even more excited to see this thing, as out of place as Tarantino looks, that 38 seconds looks badass I must say. What do you make of it?
