New Django Unchained Poster Proclaims Unalienable Rights of Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Vengeance
Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained is certainly one of the most anticipated films of the holiday and awards season. As we approach the film’s release, expect a lot more news to surface as The Weinstein Company turns up their marketing campaign for the film. Today, via Yahoo! Movies, we are treated to the latest theatrical poster featuring Django, Dr. King Schultz, and Monsieur Calvin Candie. Hit the jump to take a look at the full image.
Django Unchained’s all star cast features Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio, Samuel L. Jackson, Kerry Washington, Dennis Christopher, Gerald McRaney, Don Johnson, RZA, Anthony LaPaglia, Tom Wopat, James Remar, James Russo, Todd Allen, and Jonah Hill and hits theaters on Christmas day.
Set in the South two years before the Civil War, Django Unchained stars Foxx as Django, a slave whose brutal history with his former owners lands him face-to-face with German-born bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz (Waltz). Schultz is on the trail of the murderous Brittle brothers, and only Django can lead him to his bounty. The unorthodox Schultz acquires Django with a promise to free him upon the capture of the Brittles – dead or alive.
Success leads Schultz to free Django, though the two men choose not to go their separate ways. Instead, Schultz seeks out the South’s most wanted criminals with Django by his side. Honing vital hunting skills, Django remains focused on one goal: finding and rescuing Broomhilda (Washington), the wife he lost to the slave trade long ago.
Django and Schultz’s search ultimately leads them to Calvin Candie (DiCaprio), the proprietor of “Candyland,” an infamous plantation where slaves are groomed by trainer Ace Woody to battle each other for sport. Exploring the compound under false pretenses, Django and Schultz arouse the suspicion of Stephen (Academy Award nominee Jackson), Candie’s trusted house slave. Their moves are marked, and a treacherous organization closes in on them. If Django and Schultz are to escape with Broomhilda, they must choose between independence and solidarity, between sacrifice and survival.
