Django Unchained PosterQuentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained will be unleashed on US audiences on Christmas Day, and the anticipation couldn’t be higher.

With an all-star cast, led by Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, and Leonardo DiCaprio, we’ve seen plenty from the film already to suggest it will be one of the year’s best – last month treated us to a fantastic new international trailer – and now Yahoo Movies have debuted a new poster for the film, along with the US variants of the full set of character posters we saw last month.

“Set in the South two years before the Civil War, DJANGO UNCHAINED stars Academy Award(R)-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(R)-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.”

Foxx, Waltz, and DiCaprio are joined by Kerry Washington, Samuel L. Jackson, Jonah Hill, Don Johnson, and Walton Goggins starring alongside.

Tarantino is naturally once more directing from his own script, reuniting with executive producers Bob and Harvey Weinstein.

Django Unchained will be released in the US on Christmas Day, and will be arriving slightly later in the UK on 18th January. I can’t wait. It looks like another instant classic from one of the best writer-directors in the industry.
