Django Unchained

Django Unchained

It was back in 2009 when Inglourious Basterds hit the big screen - a movie that gave Quentin Tarantino his biggest commercial hit; not to mention that it was nominated for Best Picture.

Almost four years later the director is back with his new movie Django Unchained and it is a movie that could bring him even more success than his previous project.

There is always excitement surrounding a Quentin Tarantino directed movie as you are never quite sure what you are going to get but this time around he is bringing us a Western.

The director himself was influenced by the likes of Sergio Leone and now, for the first time, he tackles the genre that enthralled him as a child.

As well as being in the director’s chair Tarantino has also penned the screenplay - not to mention he has brought together a great cast.

Early 2013 sees great casts being assembled left, right and centre and Django Unchained is no different.

Oscar winner Jamie Foxx takes on central character Django while Christoph Waltz is working with Tarantino for a second time after the success of Inglourious Basterds.

Leonardo DiCaprio, Samuel L. Jackson and Kerry Washington make up the exciting cast list for what promises to be a fantastic movie.

Set in the South two years before the Civil War, Django Unchained follows Django, a slave whose brutal history with his former owners lands him face-to-face with German-born bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz (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.

Like a lot of movies that are released this time of year Django Unchained could well be an Oscar contender when the nominations are announced 10th January.

Django Unchained is released 18th January
