Django Unchained DVD

Vengeance has a new name in the Oscar®-winning, global box office hit Django Unchained, riding in on Blu-ray and DVD with UltraViolet May 20th from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

This epic, action-packed Spaghetti Western from writer/director Quentin Tarantino (Inglourious Basterds) was nominated for five 2012 Academy Awards® (Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay, Best Supporting Actor, Best Cinematography and Best Editing), taking home awards for Best Original Screenplay (Tarantino) and Best Supporting Actor (Waltz).

Django Unchained is a classic Tarantino revenge story about a slave (Foxx) who, with the help of a German bounty hunter (Waltz), rises up from the brutality of his former life to exact his own brand of personal justice in his quest to free his slave wife (Washington) from an evil plantation owner (DiCaprio).  

The film, with US theatrical rights held by The Weinstein Company, has grossed more than $400 million globally and features a stellar cast, including Academy Award® winner Jamie Foxx (Best Actor, Ray, 2005), two-time Academy Award® winner Christoph Waltz (Best Supporting Actor, Django Unchained, 2012 and Best Supporting Actor, Inglourious Basterds, 2010), Academy Award® nominee Leonardo DiCaprio (Inception), Kerry Washington (Ray, TV’s Scandal) and Academy Award® nominee Samuel L. Jackson (Best Supporting Actor, Pulp Fiction, 1994; The Avengers).  

The Blu-ray comes with two exclusive featurettes: 'Reimagining the Spaghetti Western: The Horses & Stunts of Django Unchained,' giving viewers a look at the making of the film.

'The Costume Designs of Sharen Davis' chronicles the costume choices of designer Sharen Davis, who imagined, designed and created every article of clothing and accessory featured in the film, from Django’s first outfit as a free man in vibrant blue to Calvin Candie’s three piece suits.

Both the Blu-ray and DVD come with the featurette 'Remembering J. Michael Riva: The Production Design of Django Unchained,' giving viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the selection of settings and style that Riva, who was the driving force behind the set design, used to visually tell Django’s story. The Blu-ray and DVD also come with the 'Django Unchained Soundtrack Promo'.   

Django Unchained was produced by Stacey Sher (Pulp Fiction), Reginald Hudlin (TV’s The Boondocks) and Pilar Savone (Inglourious Basterds). Executive producers are Bob Weinstein (Inglourious Basterds), Harvey Weinstein (Inglourious Basterds), Michael Shamberg (Pulp Fiction), Shannon McIntosh (Death Proof) and James W.
