First Look at DC Rebirth Designs For Bizarro, Red Robin, Batman Beyond & More
At this point, we’ve seen about four trailers for Quentin Tarantino’s revenge Western Django Unchained, but they’ve mostly been variations on the original. Now we have a brand-new version that not only features new footage, but also actors Samuel L. Jackson and Jonah Hill. Of course, stars Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio and Kerry Washington also have prominent roles.
Django Unchained follows Dr. Schultz (Waltz) and freed slave Django (Foxx) as they go on a mutually beneficial mission of revenge that brings them in contact with characters played by Hill, Jackson, DiCaprio, Washington, Don Johnson and others. The film open Dec. 25.
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.

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 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…
