In two new images from Quentin Tarantino’s latest, which also stars Kerry Washington, Kurt Russell and Samuel L. Jackson, the actors showcase costumes authentic to the film’s Southern locale.
Quentin Tarantino fans eager to see the filmmaker’s take on spaghetti westerns got their first look Thursday at what he calls his “Southern.” The Weinstein Company released two images from Django Unchained, one featuring Leonardo DiCaprio and the other Jamie Foxx and Christoph Waltz, both of which highlight the period details in Tarantino’s depiction of the antebellum American South.
Django Unchained stars Jamie Foxx as Django, a slave who strikes a tenuous deal with bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz (played by Waltz) in exchange for help finding his kidnapped wife Broomhilda (Kerry Washington). DiCaprio plays a plantation owner named Calvin Candie, who grooms slaves to battle each other for sport. Kurt Russell plays Candie’s slave trainer, and Samuel L. Jackson plays a house slave named Stephen who becomes suspicious of Django and Schultz after they begin to investigate Candie’s “Candyland” plantation complex.
