A former slave and a German bounty hunter become unlikely allies in the battle against a tyrannical plantation owner in this \western} from visionary director Quentin Tarantino. Two years before the Civil War pits brother-against-brother, German-born fugitive hunter Dr. King Schultz (Academy Award-winner Christoph Waltz) arrives in America determined to capture the outlaw Brittle Brothers dead or alive. In the midst of his search, Dr. Schultz crosses paths with Django (Academy Award-winner Jamie Foxx), a freed slave and skilled tracker who seeks to rescue his beloved wife Broomhilda (Kerry Washington) from ruthless plantation owner Calvin Candie (Academy Award-nominee Leonardo DiCaprio). Once Django has aided Dr. Schultz in capturing the Brittle Brothers, the two team up to capture some of the most wanted men in the South. Meanwhile, Django never loses sight of his mission to free Broomhilda from the treacherous lave trade before it’s too late. Upon arriving at Candie’s nefarious plantation, dubbed Candyland, Django and Dr. Schultz discover that slaves are being groomed for gladiator-like competitions by Candie’s malevolent right-hand man Billy Crash (Walton Goggins), and skillfully work their way onto the compound for a closer look. But just as Django and his partner locate Broomhilda and plot a daring escape, Candie’s house slave Stephen (Academy Award-nominee Samuel L. Jackson) catches wind of their plan, and informs his master of the betrayal. Now, as a clandestine organization attempts to back them into a corner, Django and Dr. Schultz will have to come out pistols blazing if they ever hope to free Broomhilda from Candyland and the clutches of its vile proprietor.
Yo, you want some Jay-Z with your classic English literature? How about some blazing hip hop beatz in a Jazz Age drama? Inspired mashup or potential disaster? The jury is still out on Baz Luhrmann‘s “The Great Gatsby” but there is no doubt that on a visual level, this film will be nothing short of a knockout.
A small batch of new images have arrived, giving us a better look at the impossibly good-looking cast led by Leonardo DiCaprio as Jay Gatsby, Carey Mulligan as Daisy Buchanan, and Tobey Maguire as Nick Carraway. As HeyUGuys notes, the image above shows Jay and Nick being served at The Angry Diamond, which is sly reference to this line from the third chapter of F. Scott Fitzgerald‘s novel: “… at intervals she appeared suddenly at his side like an angry diamond, and hissed: ‘You promised!’ into his ear.” We have to admit, it’s a pretty nice little touch and there will likely be more nods throughout the movie for literature heads to pick up on.
Featuring Joel Edgerton, Isla Fisher, Jason Clarke, Amitabh Bachchan, Callan MacAuliffe and more, “The Great Gatsby” arrives in 3D on Christmas Day.
