There was a false alarm earlier today when the trailer for Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained was released ahead of schedule. The Weinstein Company pulled it down across the web until it's official release, which is right now!
The movie looks absolutely fantastic, and everything I would expect to see from Tarantino in a western. It's really interesting to see Leonardo DiCaprio play a villainous character like this, this looks like a great role for him, and I'm glad that he ended up taking it to work with Tarantino. Everyone in the film looks great, and I can't wait to see how the full story plays out on the big screen.
The movie hit theaters on December 25th. Check out the trailer below and let us know what your intial thoughts are on Tarantino's latest flick.
The film stars Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, and Leonardo Dicaprio who all look great in the film! It also stars Kerry Washington, Samuel L. Jackson, James Remar, Don Johnson, Franco Nero, Walton Goggins, Bruce Dern, M.C. Gainey, RZA, Tom Savini, Michael Bacall, Dennis Christopher, and Laura Cayouette.
Here's the Synopsis:
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...
