The last thing we heard about Quentin Tarantino’s followup to Inglourious Basterds, the Western Django Unchained, was that actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt had to drop out due to scheduling conflicts. Today we have something happier to display, courtesy of Yahoo Movies: the new poster from the Weinstein Company/Columbia Pictures production, set to open Dec. 25.
If you follow the web address at the bottom of the poster, UnchainedMovie.com, you see a page sporting the same image — it curiously doesn’t include the film’s title, but instead says simply “The new film by Quentin Tarantino” — with a Saul Bass-inspired loading screen.
Django Unchained stars Jamie Foxx as a former slave who’s been separated from his wife (Kerry Washington). Now a bounty hunter, Django has made it his mission to find his wife and get revenge against his former master as well as the sadistic people who work for him. The movie also stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Christoph Waltz, Samuel L. Jackson, Sacha Baron Cohen and a host of others.
