Six new images from “Django Unchained” have been released, with the buzz the movie created at Cannes still fresh in everyone’s mind. The images put Christoph Waltz and Jamie Foxx front and center, while still teasing the tense relationship with Leonardo DiCaprio’s villainous plantation owner.
You can see all six images below, but our favorite is definitely the one of Waltz firing a pistol at some unlucky gentleman. We knew that this was going to be director Quentin Tarantino’s take on a Western, but it wasn’t until we saw this image that we really realized how much fun that will be.
“Django Unchained” focuses on the partnership of Foxx’s Django and Waltz’s bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz. Schultz purchases Django with plans to free him upon catching his quarry, but Django’s primary goal is rescuing his wife Broomhilda, played by Kerry Washington. Their hunt leads them to “Candyland,” a plantation where slaves are forced to fight one another for sport by their owner, Calvin Candie, played by DiCaprio.
Tarantino’s latest stars Foxx, Waltz, Washington and DiCaprio, RZA, Samuel L. Jackson, Walton Goggins, and some “surprise costars.” It’s due in theaters on Christmas Day.
