Tarantino’s Django Unchained – First Pictures27.04.12 # News # 2 Comments
Still a long ol’ while to wait for Quentin Tarantino’s newie, revenge western Django Unchained – it’s not due to saunter into cinemas till 25 December this year. Probably a good thing then that the Weinstein Company is whetting the appetites of the Tarantacolytes out there by keeping up a steady drip of Django-tastic publicity materials; the newest such offering is the first two official pictures.
It was a fortnight ago that the first teaser poster was revealed for Django Unchained, but although some papped on-shot shots of the movie’s principals have previously surfaced, these are the first official shots of stars Jamie Foxx (as the eponymous freed slave Django) and Christoph Waltz (as German bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz)…
…as well as Leonardo DiCaprio as slave-mongering gitsack Calvin Candie.
Foxx has also been speaking a little about the movie, describing his character as Richard Roundtree meets Clint Eastwood. The Collateral actor has also elucidated his view of Django’s relationship with Waltz’s sharpshooter:
Christoph’s character is a little aloof to what slavery is. He’s not familiar with everything, and when he sees atrocities, it’s Greek to him. But Django lets him know this is the way the world is and we got to get used to it.
Are you looking forward to Django Unchained? Has Tarantino still got it, in your opinion? Let us know!
