The first official poster was revealed today for Quentin Tarantino's next project, “Django Unchained”. The Weinstein Company released the poster via Yahoo Movies.
The spaghetti western style film follows Django, a freed slave (Jamie Foxx), who with the help of a German bounty hunter (Christoph Waltz), becomes a bounty hunter himself. The two form a partnership, where Django helps Waltz's character take down some bad guys for money, and Waltz helps Django track down his wife, who was enslaved by a ruthless plantation owner (Leonardo DiCaprio).
The all-star cast also features the likes of Kurt Russell, Samuel L. Jackson, Sacha Baron Cohen, Don Johnson, and Anthony LaPaglia. The film is slated to be released on Christmas day of this year.
The poster doesn’t exactly give much away, but its not like that’s really necessary. The revenge plot and star-studded cast are more than enough to spike my interest. Count this among the films I’m looking forward to the most this year.
