The Weinstein Company has revealed the very first official artwork from Quentin Tarantino’s next film, Django Unchained.
The minimalist design manages to sum up the spaghetti western tone of the December 25, 2012 release.
In the film, the title character Django (Jamie Foxx) is a freed slave, who under the tutelage of a German bounty hunter (Christoph Waltz) becomes a badass bounty hunter himself. After assisting Waltz on taking down some bad guys for profit, he is in turn assisted by Waltz in tracking down his slave wife and liberating her from an evil plantation owner. The film deals with racism, while it’s 100 percent pure popcorn and revenge flick, it takes on the evil slave owning south.
Django Unchained also stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Samuel L. Jackson, Sacha Baron Cohen, Gerald McRaney, Dennis Christopher, Kurt Russell, Laura Cayouette, M.C. Gainey, Don Johnson, Kerry Washington, Anthony LaPaglia, RZA, Tom Wopat, James Remar, James Russo and Todd Allen.
The poster also includes a link to the film’s official site, www.unchainedmovie.com which will be populated soon.
