Django Unchained Movie Preview

 
 

Django Unchained

Theatrical Release Date: December 25, 2012 / Expected Rating: R / Studio: Weinstein

Writer/Director: Quentin Tarantino

Cast: Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kerry Washington, Samuel L. Jackson, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Sacha Baron Cohen, Kurt Russell, Walton Goggins, Laura Cayouette, James Remar, Don Johnson, Anthony LaPaglia, M.C. Gainey, Tom Wopat, RZA, Tom Savini

Plot: A freed slave turned bounty hunter (Foxx) sets out with his mentor (Waltz) to rescue his wife (Washington) from a sadistic Mississippi plantation owner (DiCaprio).

Domestic Box Office Prediction: $110 million

Many of Tarantino's movies seem too indulgent to care about, but Inglourious Basterds was one of the best of his career and I'm hopeful but skeptical that he can maintain that winning blend of substance and style in this spaghetti western. Foxx was cast in the title role after Will Smith rumors fell through. Too bad for Smith; this sounds like it would have been a good chance for him to stretch himself. Kevin Costner will also miss out an opportunity to reinvent; he dropped out and was replaced by Russell.

Outlook: Promising
