Today may be Halloween but I’m already looking ahead to Christmas. The family gatherings, the joy of giving, the religious celebration… it’s all important. But this year, there’s also Tarantino. Quentin Tarantino‘s latest film, Django Unchained, opens on December 25 and brings with it the kind of excitement generated by a filmmaker whose previous releases have been almost universally stellar. Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, Kill Bill, Inglourious Basterds and now the story of a slave (Jamie Foxx) trained by a bounty hunter (Christoph Waltz) to kill some evil brothers (including Leonardo DiCaprio) to save the slave’s wife (Kerry Washington).

Tarantino recently revealed, like is the case with many of his films, Django is going to have ties to his previous movie and that makes this new batch of images even more interesting. Besides new shots of several of the stars, we meet secondary characters played by Don Johnson and Walton Goggins. Most of the Tarantino movie connections are tangential so it’s possible these guys are more important than they seem. And if they’re not, it’s still a new look at the latest Tarantino film. Check out all the images after the jump. Read More »

At this point, it feels like we’ve seen more trailers for December’s Django Unchained than we have for a lot of October and November releases. Not that I’d think of complaining, when they’re all this much fun.

The latest international trailer remixes some of the same footage we’ve already seen, but offers enough new scenes to give us a fresh angle on the personalities and motivations of the main players — Django (Jamie Foxx), Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz), Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio), and Broomhilda (Kerry Washington). And of course, there’s more than enough wit, style, and violence to remind you that this is a Quentin Tarantino movie. Watch the new trailer after the jump.

Don’t hide your excitement about having a new Quentin Tarantino movie to discuss in about two months. That movie, Django Unchained, follows a slave (Jamie Foxx) freed by a bounty hunter (Christoph Waltz) with the two then teaming up to search for the slave’s wife (Kerry Washington) who is under the control of a plantation owner (Leonardo DiCaprio). I describe the film in these basic terms because a new set of character posters has done the same. They put the actors in these complex roles front and center. Simple and clean.

The film will be released on December 25 but you can look at the posters right now.

December has more than its fair share of highly anticipated titles, but somehow we suspect Quentin Tarantino‘s Django Unchained will have no trouble setting itself apart from the pack. The second full-length domestic trailer for the “Southern-fried Western” offers plenty of juicy new footage, including better looks at stars Kerry Washington, Samuel L. Jackson, and Jonah Hill. Even better, it does a bang-up job of showing off Tarantino’s twisted sense of humor and kinetic style. Watch it after the jump.

A new international trailer has just hit for Quentin Tarantino‘s “Southern-fried Western” Django Unchained. While the new video hits most of the same beats, explaining how bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz) comes to join forces with slave Django (Jamie Foxx) to track down the murderous Brittler brothers and rescue Django’s wife (Kerry Washington), the new video offers some fresh new footage and dialogue along the way. Watch it after the jump.

Kerry Washington is Broomhilda in ‘Django Unchained’

And there you have it, folks. For the past several months we’ve watched as Quentin Tarantino filled seemingly every single role in his Django Unchained except the key character of Django’s wife Broomhilda — but the part remains empty no more. Kerry Washington has landed the female lead in the “Southern-fried spaghetti Western,” in which she’ll star opposite Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio, and many others. More details after the jump.

We don’t have full confirmation from Quentin Tarantino or The Weinstein Company, but at this point it looks like Jamie Foxx will play the lead in Quentin Tarantino’s new film Django Unchained, which he’ll shoot in the next few months.

UPDATE: Variety and other outlets confirm the casting. Variety also says that Kerry Washington is one of several actresses to meet about the role of Django’s wife Broomhilda. Read More »

UPDATE: Late Tuesday night, The Weinstein Company officially picked up The Details.

When the Sundance Film Festival first announced their out of competition films, one I was particularly excited for, based solely on its description, was The Details. Written and directed by Jacob Aaron Estes (Mean Creek), The Details stars Tobey Maguire, Elizabeth Banks, Laura Linney, Ray Liotta, Kerry Washington and Dennis Haysbert in a dark comedy about a snowball of suburban drama set off by worm-hungry raccoons. Surprisingly, the film actually lives up to that wild one-sentence description providing laughs, shocks and a very well-balanced film considering it makes light of death, infidelity and more.
