Leonardo DiCaprio and Quentin Tarantino fans just got their first proper glimpse of their next film Django Unchained. The new stills of the film feature DiCaprio as the rustic Calvin Candie and Jamie Foxx as Django.
The story is about Django (Jamie Foxx), who, with the help of his mentor, a slave-turned-bounty hunter Dr King Schultz (Waltz) sets out to rescue his wife from a brutal Mississippi plantation owner (DiCaprio).
Two stills of the film were released by Sony Pictures. In one, Christoph Waltz (who won a best supporting actor Oscar for his role as a Jew-hunting Nazi in Inglourious Basterds) and Jamie Foxx (who won the best actor Oscar for his role as Ray Charles in Ray) stroll through a classic 19th century Western town.
The second image shows Leonardo DiCaprio as the evil plantation owner Calvin Candie.
Weinstein Company had also released a minimalistic teaser poster of the film on Yahoo! Movies last week. The poster shows two silhouettes outlined against a red backdrop with a black chain hanging over them, the poster confirms that the film will be out by the end of 2012.
The silhouettes, we now know, belong to Django and Dr Schultz.
In this film, Tarantino gives his own spin to the legendary 1966 Spaghetti Western original., although he has referred to the film as a 'Southern' rather than a 'Western' because of its setting.
The film is scheduled to release in USA on December 25.
