Another day, another reason to be excited about “Django Unchained.”
Today’s reason comes courtesy of The Playlist, who has posted a brand new image from Quentin Tarantino’s latest film. In it, we see Jamie Foxx as the titular Django wearing his token green pea coat and wielding a six-shooter. What more can we ask for on the Friday before a long holiday weekend?
We’re still months away from “Django Unchained” hitting theaters, but it’s definitely one of our top movies of the year. Everything we’ve heard about the project has given us cause for excitement, and all the trailers and photos released — yes, even ones as spoiler-free as this — seem to add to that. If you don’t believe us, check out the most recent trailer for the project.
“Django Unchained” follows Django (Foxx) as he seeks to rescue his wife Broomhilda (Kerry Washington) from the men who captured her. He teams up with Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz), a bounty hunter who enlists him to help him catch his quarry before they go on to find Django’s wife. Their hunt leads them to a plantation called “Candyland,” run by the delightfully villainous Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio). Based on what we know about the project, things spiral quickly out of control from that point onwards. The film is due in theaters on Christmas Day.
