Quentin Tarantino fans have known about Django Unchained for a while now and they’ve been not so patiently waiting for any kind of trailer for the auteurs next film.
Django Unchained is set in 1859, two years before the start of the American Civil War, and stars Jamie Foxx as Django, a slave whose violent history with his former owners lands him in the hands of German-born bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz (Christopher Waltz). Schultz is hunting down the murderous Brittle Brothers, who cover their faces when they commit their violent crimes, and only Django has actually seen their likenesses. The bounty promises Django’s freedom if he helps him capture the Brittles, dead or alive.
During their journey, they find themselves on the plantation of Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio), dubiously called “Candyland.” On the infamous estate, slaves are groomed by trainer Ace Woody (Kurt Russell) to battle each other for sport. Django and Schultz find themselves enmeshed in Candie’s violent and disturbing world while trying to find Django’s wife, who was sold years ago.
The film also stars Samuel L. Jackson, Anthony LaPaglia, RZA, James Remar, and Todd Allen.
Django Unchained is set for a Christmas release this year on December 25.
