Set in the South two years before the Civil War, "Django Unchained" stars Academy Award®-winner Jamie Foxx as Django, a slave whose brutal history with his former owners lands him face-to-face with German-born bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz (Academy Award®-winner Christoph Waltz). Schultz is on the trail of the murderous Brittle brothers, and only Django can lead him to his bounty. The unorthodox Schultz acquires Django with a promise to free him upon the capture of the Brittles – dead or alive.

Success leads Schultz to free Django, though the two men choose not to go their separate ways. Instead, Schultz seeks out the South’s most wanted criminals with Django by his side. Honing vital hunting skills, Django remains focused on one goal: finding and rescuing Broomhilda (Kerry Washington), the wife he lost to the slave trade long ago.

Django and Schultz’s search ultimately leads them to Calvin Candie (Academy Award®-nominee Leonardo DiCaprio), the proprietor of “Candyland,” an infamous plantation where slaves are groomed by trainer Ace Woody (Kurt Russell) to battle each other for sport. Exploring the compound under false pretenses, Django and Schultz arouse the suspicion of Stephen (Academy Award®-nominee Samuel L. Jackson), Candie’s trusted house slave. Their moves are marked, and a treacherous organization closes in on them. If Django and Schultz are to escape with Broomhilda, they must choose between independence and solidarity, between sacrifice and survival...



Thanks to LucasXmen for the heads up. Django Unchained hits theaters 25th December, 2012 (US) January 18th, 2013 (UK), and has a comic book adaptation due out soon also.

Sweet movie looks cool
MisterNiceGuy - 8/23/2012, 10:17 AM
i just hate how is movies start off great and then just begin to get really farfetched and rediculous. ill see it for the cast

I certainly hope it's good. I wasn't the biggest fan of Inglorious Basterds, but I think that was because I really wanted Adam Sandler to be the Bear-Jew like he originally was going to do, instead of that terrible movie "Funny People".

Whether you like Tarantino's movies or not, he cannot be described as a hack. A hack is someone who gets paid to do a job they are not good at, he is VERY good at what he does, even if you, as I said, don't happen to appreciate it.

Ingloroious Basterds didn't do it for me either, although there were some good performances in it.

A western from Tarantino... I'm interested in taking a look I'll admit. I'm curious to see what he's been up to recently creatively, I guess this will showcase whether He's 'still got it'.
RorMachine - 8/23/2012, 10:36 AM
I loved it, but I can see why some wouldn't.
THEBAMF - 8/23/2012, 10:58 AM
Hack??? WTF are you guys talking about? Tarantino is anything but a hack.
ChiefJudge - 8/23/2012, 11:01 AM
Loved Inglorious - Gotta get me one of them big pipes!
PapaII - 8/23/2012, 11:09 AM
Loved 'Inglorious'! Tarantino: love him or leave him!
MisterNiceGuy - 8/23/2012, 11:22 AM
BURN!

Tarantino is the shit. Pulp Fiction or Reservoir Dogs, anyone? Grindhouse was awesome. can't remember which one he did. the point is he makes films for filmmakers, not really the general audience. hence why a lot of people hate his work.
OnLeatherWings - 8/23/2012, 11:32 AM
If ya don't like his style don't watch em and leave.
OnLeatherWings - 8/23/2012, 11:36 AM
I can safely say pulp fiction is one of my favorite movies. Inglorious Bastard is another one. I watch his films for the dialogue and cinematography. He does such a good job of building suspence
RorMachine - 8/23/2012, 11:38 AM
Nomis, he never shied away from the fact that he takes heavy influence from a number of movies..he embraces it. But they are not "rip offs". Have you actually seen any of those older movies you referenced? I mean he called his homage to "The Inglorious Bastards" "Inglorious Basterds". Does that sound like he's hiding behind a rip off artist's facade to you?
SHHH - 8/23/2012, 12:10 PM
Inglorious Bastards Had Too Much Talking For Most... Not ColorFul Enough..
I Loved That Shit...
RorMachine - 8/23/2012, 12:24 PM
Puyguy, lay off the insults, you can put your point across without name-calling I assume?
Natetrix79 - 8/23/2012, 12:38 PM
Damn people bitch about everything!!!! If your not gonna go see it then shut up about it, if you don't like the guys movies then don't click on the story about him or his movies to bitch about them! I don't watch Sex in the City so I wouldn't go on their website to bitch about how bad it is or how much I don't like it cause that would be [frick]ING STUPID!!!
UrbanKnight - 8/23/2012, 2:08 PM
Ha ha. Why does the black man have to be strapped while the white guys look like gentlemen, even THE bad guy? j/k.

When are these "film critics" in here gonna finally realize NO film or filmmaker is utterly and completely original!! *facepalm*
No matter how great they are! Its a fact.

I like how Jamie Foxx is the main character, yet Leo gets the front position. Why such aesthetic choices when considering black characters? It happens all the time.

@eDubya72

I know, right? That was the first thing I noticed, the second being my very active disinterest in Leonardo DiCaprio.

My only real problem with Tarantino is that a lot of his recent work has felt stale and recycled. Everything from the script, to the direction, to the soundtrack. Of course, I've enjoyed the actors involved (i.e. Christoph Waltz in IB), but, much like Burton, Tarantino has fallen into a comfort zone he can't seem to get out of.



Quite honestly, I'm going to see Django just see Walton Goggins inwhatever small role he has in the film.

QT being a "hack" is the dumbest thing I've read all day.

Inglourious Basterds kicked ass & Django will too.
UncleDrew - 8/23/2012, 7:33 PM
Can't wait to see this movie. Got my favorite actor in Leonardo DiCaprio and one of my favorite directors Quentin Tarantino.
TrueRedBlue - 8/23/2012, 8:01 PM
UGH It'll be SO good!!
DocManhattan - 8/23/2012, 8:06 PM
@ eDubya72

DiCaprio is the biggest box office draw out of the 3 actors. They would have put him at the front in order to sell more magazines.
lapress - 8/23/2012, 8:57 PM
can't wait till tarintino pops pops out of nowhere just to say the n word
Feud - 8/23/2012, 9:47 PM
@Nomis are you Intruder's brother or what? If you think Quentin Tarantino is a bad director you're an idiot. I know everyone has opinions, but yours is stupid and based on blind fanboyism.
