This talented director is known for his famous movies such as his awarding winning movie: Pulp Fiction, Inglorious Basterds, Kill Bill 1 and 2. He is now brewing a new movie that will once again captivate the curiosity of movie goers and fans of Quentin Tarantino. Django Unchained is a cowboy movie but don’t even think that this is something that you’ve come across before. Because in this Tarantino film the setting does not take place in the Old West but instead it is in the pre-Civil War of the South. There is much to look for in Django Unchained, so let’s take a look at what’s in store for us this year.
In this new movie, Django is actually a slave residing in the Deep South and he became separated from his wife. Django is played by Jamie Foxx and his wife is the talented actress Kerry Washington. When Django (Foxx) was bought in a slave auction by Ace Speck (James Remar), Dr. King Schultz (played by Chritoph Waltz,) a bounty hunter frees Django from enslavement. Dr. Schultz then gives him a proposition to hunt and kill the Brittle Brothers who are ruthless killers who was only seen by Django. If he do this bidding, Schultz will free Django from slavery completely and he promises to help rescue his wife Broomhilda who is currently owned by Calvin Candie (played by Leonardo DiCaprio), a francophile. The main cast will also be joined by other noted actors like: Samuel L. Jackson, Dennis Christopher, Tom Savini and Laura Cayouette.
Django Unchained is produced by Super Cool Man Shoe Too, Brown 26 Productions, Columbia Pictures, Double Features and The Weinstein Company. Django Unchained is written by Quentin Tarantino who had a whole new vision to the world of cowboys. This new movie is set to premiere in theaters on Christmas day, December 25th 2012 and The Weinstein Company is tasked when it comes to the movie’s theatrical release in the United States. The first trailer of Django Unchained was made available on the web last June 6th 2012 and it definitely stirred some buzz from critics and audiences alike. Let’s take a look at some of the initial reviews for the trailer of Django Unchained:
Perhaps the biggest attention grabber of this whole affair is former teen heartthrob Leonardo DiCaprio as an egotistical plantation owner. For all his great roles, DiCaprio has never played such a clear-cut villain, and it’s clear he’s having one hell of a time in the role of Calvin Candie, who owns slaves and uses them for prize fights to the death. Yeah, that doesn’t sound like the Leo we know, and that’s exactly why we can’t wait. – MTV.com
Needless to say: this looks to be a Tarantino creation, in every meaning of the term. – Screenrant
The sneak peek was highly praised for presenting a mixture of sharp humor and brutal violence. Empire magazine sang praises, “Harvey Weinstein just presented 7 mins of Django Unchained. Looks ace. We’re tipping Fritz the nodding horse to be a breakout star,” – Ace Showbiz
