VIDEO: Jamie Foxx Plays Slave "Django" In New Quentin Tarantino Film; Check Out The Trailer


Following his past Academy Award-winning and nominated films like Reservoir Dogs, Jackie Brown, Pulp FictionKill Bill and Inglorious Basterds, director Quentin Tarantino returns this Christmas with his brand new film, Django Unchained.

Django, which stars Jamie Foxx as a freed slave accompanying a bounty hunter on a quest to kill as many plantation and slave owners as possible, looks like the kind of film that will serve both as a social commentary and on a larger scale, all-around entertainment for all film fans this holiday season.

Check out the trailer and official plot synopsis for Django Unchained below:

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. 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.

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 (Kurt Russell) 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…

Django Unchained hits theatres on Christmas Day.
