First Official Teaser Poster for Tarantino's 'Django Unchained' Arrives
Próximamente! The internet is abuzz with a glimpse at what is supposedly the first official poster for Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained, which has been filming in Louisiana for the last few months. The poster is a very minimalistic teaser, entirely in Spanish, featuring some cool artwork, but not much else. My speculation comes from the Tumblr gallery of Django Unchained fan art posters, which look quite similar to this. But it is a fantastic poster, and if it is real all the better, let's finally start the buzz for this movie. But then again this is from Spain, so I'm not sure it reflects any US marketing just yet. See it below!
Update: Turns out it definitely IS real, and The Weinstein Co. has released an English version on Yahoo.
Django Unchained is written and directed by Quentin Tarantino, who last brought us Inglourious Basterds. In the film, the Django (Jamie Foxx) is a freed slave, who under the tutelage of a German bounty hunter (Christoph Waltz) becomes a bounty hunter himself, and together they track down his slave wife (Kerry Washington) and liberate her from the evil plantation owner (Leonardo DiCaprio). The cast includes Samuel L. Jackson, Sacha Baron Cohen, Dennis Christopher, Kurt Russell, M.C. Gainey, Don Johnson, Anthony LaPaglia, RZA, James Remar, James Russo and Todd Allen. Filming is now underway and The Weinstein Company currently has this scheduled for release on December 25th, Christmas Day, the end of this year.
