Time to start riding, shooting, drinking and glaring in these new images from DJANGO UNCHAINED

1 min read

Fresh off earning heaps of praise at last week’s Cannes Film Festival, Quentin Tarantino’s spaghetti western/slave epic, Django Unchained, moseys on back into town with some new still images.

The images seem to be running the full gamut of what makes up a cowboy’s life: riding horses, shooting people, drinking cheap liquor and then staring at other people in a menacing way. It’s like somebody just picked them with the help of a checklist drawn up by the Sergio Leone Fan Club!

While Jamie Foxx is certainly no Man With No Name – he’d have to spend about another decade staring straight into the sun to get that look down – I do like his character’s look, and if early reports hold true that he’s sort of melded Richard Roundtree with Clint Eastwood for this, then we’re certainly in for an experience. Christmas can’t come soon enough!

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.

    Crap. Just noticed that Foxx is sporting some man-camel toe in that last picture. What has been seen cannot be unseen.

      That doesn’t mean you should point it out…

    I have my doubts about it being a true blue Spaghetti Western. The popular image of the Spaghetti Western, to my knowledge has never had snow in it. At least none that I’ve seen.

    Though there have been Westerns with snow (Unforgiven, Silverado, Pale Rider, etc) I can’t remember a SPAGHETTI Western with snow, though feel free to correct me if I’m wrong

      Well, QT is doing what he always does and borrowing from the various genres he loves. So while it may not be a true blue example of it, it will have spaghetti western elements.
