The official Django Unchained plot synopsis is fairly detailed and has minor spoilers

04.13.2012by:

The official synopsis for DJANGO UNCHAINED reveals our most detailed information about Quentin Tarantino's new film. For most people, the name Quentin Tarantino would be enough to sell tickets, but for those not sold by the amazing minimalist poster will surely be enticed by the plotline for the film.

Fair warning: While this is a synopsis, if you do not want to know what happens in this film, avoid this article.

Set in the South two years before the Civil War, DJANGO UNCHAINED stars Academy AwardŽ-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 AwardŽ-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.

Success leads Schultz to free Django, though the two men choose not to go their separate ways. Instead, Schultz seeks out the South's most wanted criminals with Django by his side. Honing vital hunting skills, Django remains focused on one goal: finding and rescuing Broomhilda (Kerry Washington), the wife he lost to the slave trade long ago.

Django andSchultz's search ultimately leads them to Calvin Candie (Academy AwardŽ-nominee Leonardo DiCaprio), the proprietor of "Candyland," an infamous plantation where slaves are groomed by trainer Ace Woody (Kurt Russell) to battle each other for sport. Exploring the compound under false pretenses, Django and Schultz arouse the suspicion of Stephen (Academy AwardŽ-nominee Samuel L. Jackson), Candie's trusted house slave. Their moves are marked, and a treacherous organization closes in on them. If Django and Schultz are to escape with Broomhilda, they must choose between independence and solidarity, between sacrifice and survival...

Written and directed by Academy AwardŽ-winner Quentin Tarantino, DJANGO UNCHAINED is produced by Stacey Sher, Reginald Hudlin and Pilar Savone. The executive producers are Harvey and Bob Weinstein, Michael Shamberg, Shannon McIntosh, and James Skotchdopole. DJANGO UNCHAINED will be released in the U.S. on December 25, 2012, and internationally by Sony Pictures.

That sounds pretty awesome to me.  On top of this, the recent addition of Walton Goggins (THE SHIELD, JUSTIFIED) to the cast just makes it seem even better.

The question being asked now is, will the movie be done in time for the Christmas Day opening?  Tarantino is still in the midst of filming and is almost assuredly going to miss any film festival premieres for this movie.  I have no doubt that Tarantino will churn out another great movie.  Hopefully, we get to see a teaser with actual footage at some point this summer.

Until then, here is an image of Broomhilda herself, the lovely Kerry Washington.

- Christoph Waltz, Jamie Foxx, Leonardo DiCaprio, Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell?
- freeing slaves/killing amoral jerks?

I'm not really blown away from the synopsis but I'm not willing to pass judgement so soon either. I see the potential though, I cant wait to see a teaser, trailer, teaser to a trailer, anything.

You don't like plots, we get it.

I see the potential for this film, and it may be his best film yet.

I love how Christoph Waltz is playing a German Bounty Hunter. Would be cool if this was a prequel to his inglorious Basterds character. Very Cool.

Sigh, another random flame not backed up with any debate. Why is he "not that good" in your opinion. You don't have to like him, he's not for everybody, but your snobbish comment is just stupid. But thanks for taking enough time out from watching fabulous films like The Three Stooges long enough to join in.

let me guess, you really like when things explode and movies that are just as good with the sound off.

I've read the script twice! It's EXCELLENT! in my mind QT's Best screenplay yet! this could very well be his best movie yet. I know there's going to be some stiff competition for the oscars. But i am seriously willing to bet that this movie will win best picture at next years oscars. This is Quentin's "Masterpiece"

I remember the day she died, everybody was texting me because I had lunch with her exactly a year prior. She was a very sweet person, and has a tribute at New Beverly Cinema (Tarantino's Theater).

I wanted Wesley instead of Jamie. Too bad Wesley is in actual chains right now. If Tarantino had just waited for him to get out, it would have been the greatest method performance of all time.
