    Cool image--I didn't know he had a new movie in the works. Sounds cool from the IMDB page.

    And quite the cast which includes Jamie Foxx, Leonardo DiCaprio, Christoph Waltz, Kerry Washington, Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Sacha Baron Cohen. Joseph Gordon-Levitt was also attached but couldn't do it due to prior scheduling for his directorial debut film.

    Yeah, I was noticing the great cast. That's something I've come to expect from QT though, of course. Glad to be seeing Waltz again.

    synopsis:

    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 (Kurt Russell) 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.

    The script was unbelievable, I'm a fan of the 60s spaghetti westerns and this pne will rock. I can't wait to see it!! Next to Prometheus my favourite movie this year! :)

    Kurt Russell and Sacha Baron Cohen have dropped out. No explanation why yet.

    Seems like Quentin is having a hard time getting this movie made. I know he was trying to get Will Smith, Kevin Costner, Jonah Hill, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt but they couldn't because of scheduling conflicts.

    I hope he can still pull it together and make a good movie.

    Actually he's already shooting it. It's getting made. Walton Coggins is "absorbing" Russells dialogue into his role, and apparently a replacement for Cohen's role is a done deal, they just haven't announced it yet.

    While I'd love to see Russell in another western, I'm kind of glad this happened since I think Coggins is pretty * great too.

    Leo looks like he'll make a good evil *******. I liked the shot of the plantation owner's blood spraying the cotton.

    That trailer looks awesome!

    What do I go see on Xmas Day? Django Unchained or The Great Gatsby?!

    And the Hobbit comes out the week before. Should be a great holiday season!

    I enjoy Tarantino and while I can't say that I think the guy is a genius, I do think this looks like a LOT of fun. DiCaprio looks like he's having the time of his life in this role. I'd be game to catch this in the theater when it gets released. I think it'd likely be far better than Prometheus. While that one was visually fun to watch, I wasn't thrilled by it either.

    I really like that Franco Nero cameo. Looks like the first Tarantino movie I'll buy a ticket for since Pulp Fiction. Might even go with my dad who grew up with spaghetti westerns and whose all time favorite movie is "Once upon a time in the West", which he saw several times in cinema back then.

    Django Unchained

    Anxiously awaiting this one.

    I've been overwhelmingly a fan of Quentin's past films (Inglorious Basterds and Pulp Fiction both make my top 20), and I would love to see what he has in store for this installment.

    Tarantino seems to have always had a major passion for the spaghetti western. Now that he has his chance to indulge fully in that passion...well, I would expect some greatness.

    “I kill white people and get paid for it. What's not to like?”

    Yeah, it's ok say racist comments in movie trailers now.

    I found that sort of a turnoff as well.

    As it is it won't do a thing. But picture if it were replaced with "black". We'd have a global crisis on our hands.

    Things like that don't apply to period pieces that take place in times where there was no such thing as a "racist comment". You can't apply today's values to everything and expect it to stick.

    Yes, but when it is done in a film made now, it is just gratuitous.

    As far as the cast goes, I will watch Christoph Waltz in anything. He is my number one actor right now. His off-hand attitude to almost any situation is just great.

    Saw the Crew screening of Django Unchained....

    It was AWESOME!! Christoph Waltz, shines in this movie. Hell everyone is good from Jaime Foxx on down does a fantastic performance.

    There are loads of laughs and rivers of blood.


    I am so happy to have had a small hand in this film. I worked as a set dresser, with a fantastic crew. Made loads of new friends, and got to hang out with the KNB crew, and others.

    Quentin was a gem. As long as you did what he asked( as with any job), he was easy to work for. He had music between takes. Just make sure you don't have a cell phone with you. lol

    I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did.

    Nah. It's a fictional character. It isn't Fox saying it, it isn't the director or the writer or the producer saying it. It's the character of a former abused slave feeling understandably a bit bitter about his former situation. If that's what his character is in the film (or in part of it, if he has an arc), then why not show us? Isn't that what trailers are supposed to do?

    yea, maybe its just me, but it seems perfectly understandable for a slave that just gets freed to bge a little bitter towards the very people who enslaved him.

    I'm in the same boat. He has made me avoid pretty much everything he is in.

    I wasn't planning to see the next Spider-Man movie in theatres, and his addition to the cast sealed that one for me as well.

    2 hours and 45 minutes? wow, i wasnt expecting it to be that long, i went to go see it tonight before the big glizzard hits tomorrow, and found the movie theater PACKED, with a line out the door, me and the girlfriend had never been to a movie on christmas day, so we had no idea to expect it to be so packed. we wouldnt have had time to find seats/get tickets and drinks, so we just came back home... oh well theres always this weekend.

    Just got back from seeing it. Loved it. QT knocked another one out of the park for me. So many great performances. I'd be shocked if there aren't multiple Oscar nominations for this film.

    It's already up for 5 Golden Globes.

    That scene with Leo at the dinner table was real. Don't want to give too much away so if I can figure out the spoiler tags I will use em

    Such a great film. The movie had great dialogue and there were so many times where I was killing myself laughing. I had also forgotten how much QT likes his violence.

    I was in tears during the part with Don Johnson where everyone is arguing about the masks. Just Hilarious.

    Did anyone else notice that Tom Savini, Zoe Bell, and Robert Carradine were part of Candies Tracker guys? As soon as I saw her eyes, I knew if was Zoe Bell :p

    The last time I could put up with him was back when he was on In Living Color with the Wayne's brothers and i think that was only because of their writing.
