New Character Banners for Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained – Along With a 60 Second Preview
After the release of a brand new Django Unchained poster yesterday via Yahoo! Movies, the film’s official website has released eight brand new character banners featuring some new looks at the lead characters, as well as Tarantino himself. Along with the character banners is a quick 60 second clip from the film featuring virtually no new footage, so it’s nothing to get extremely excited about. With all of the hype surrounding the film already, it looks like Tarantino and The Weinstein Company don’t plan on slowing down the marketing campaign. Hit the jump to check out the clip and images.
Django Unchained stars Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kerry Washington, and Samuel L. Jackson and is right around the corner as it 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.
