With the festive season rapidly approaching, I’m sure that a number of you will be sprucing up your homes with a few decorations. Well, with a Christmas Day international release set, it’s only right that Django Unchained comes bearing gifts of just such decoration for your computer desktops.

Except, the theme is not so much “holiday cheer” as it “super cool, gunslinging, cigar smoking badasses”. Which coincidentally is my family’s Christmas theme every year.

The wallpapers all come courtesy of the newly unveiled official Django Unchained website, which I highly recommend you go explore as it’s pretty cool with a lot of fun bells and whistles.

And in case you’ve forgotten what all the fuss is about, here’s the synopsis to remind you:

Set in the South two years before the Civil War, “Django Unchained” stars Academy Award®-winner Jamie 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 (Academy Award®-winner Christoph 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 (Kerry Washington), the wife he lost to the slave trade long ago.

Django and Schultz’s search ultimately leads them to Calvin Candie (Academy Award®-nominee Leonardo 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 Samuel L. 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…
