Django Unchained behind the scenes exclusive
It's finally here and it sure was worth the wait pilgrim! Just as we'd hoped, it's another jaw-dropping fusion of dexterous dialogue and balls to the wall action from the bloke whose first job in the film industry was manning the counter in a video shop! See the master at work in this behind the scenes on set exclusive...
Watching all those gangster flicks and westerns clearly paid off for Quentin Tarantino and Django Unchained sees the king of the mash up movie back on top form inspired by the spaghetti westerns of Sergio Corbucci (Django) and Sergio Leone (The Good, The Bad and The Ugly).
Set in America in 1858, two years before the civil war, Jamie Foxx plays the slave Django who escapes his shackles to hook up with fast-talking bounty hunter Dutch King Schultz (Christoph Waltz from Inglourious Basterds). Gunning for revenge and on a mission to rescue his woman Broomhilda (Kerry Washington) from evil plantation owner Calvin Candie (Leonardo Di Caprio) Django is one mean mutha. On their epic journey to 'Candie Land' it's a bounty hunter bromance as the pair take on gunslinging desperados and a bumbling clan of redneck racists (look out for a cameo from Jonah Hill). It might be nearly three hours long but you'll be hooked for the final face off with Candie and his scheming right hand man, and slave master, Stephen (Samuel L. Jackson in his best role since Pulp Fiction).
It's a pistol-packing opera of awesomeness so saddle up for a killer ride! *****
