First Look at Christoph Waltz, Jamie Foxx, and Leonardo DiCaprio in Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained!

Posted by Max Lalanne on April 26, 2012

The Weinstein Co. released first images today from their upcoming December 25 release Django Unchained, showing Jamie Foxx and Christoph Waltz getting their Western swagger on in full costume and apparent badass attitude (above), as well as a look at a bearded, cigarette-chomping, hammer-wielding Leonardo DiCaprio (below).

In the epic slave drama, Foxx plays Django, a slave who turns avenging gunslinger after he meets a German bounty hunter named Dr. King Schultz (Waltz). After buying Django his freedom – to initially make him a deputy bounty hunter –  King trains him and helps track down and rescue his beloved wife (Kerry Washington) who’s been sold to cruel plantation owner Calvin Caddie (Leonardo DiCaprio).

If that doesn’t sound like a winning film, you also have Samuel L. Jackson, Sacha Baron Cohen, and Justified‘s Walton Goggins rounding up a stellar cast – plus the fact that that just in case you somehow didn’t know, Django Unchained is written and directed by none other that Quentin Tarantino. Sounds very promising.

Tarantino’s last film, 2009’s Inglourious Basterds, won the famed filmmaker Oscar nominations for Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Original Screenplay, as well as an actual golden statuette. That was for one of the film’s stars, which was none other than Waltz.

Django Unchained‘s early Oscar chances? I would tentatively put my money on pretty much all the noms Inglourious Basterds received three years ago.
