Leonardo DiCaprio

Gee Leonardo DiCaprio, what are you going to use that hammer for? Just in case you are wondering that’s Dicaprio here above as Calvin Candie, owner of the Candie Land slave plantation that will be seen in Quentin Tarantino’s new film Django Unchained (full image here below). So I think that hammer will be used for more nefarious things rather than what its actually intended for.

Following the release of the magnificent first poster for Django Unchained, we got our first looks at DiCaprio as Candie, and Christoph Waltz and Jamie Foxx as the German dentist turned bounty hunter and freed slave (second image here below).

Fox describes Django as Shaft’s “Richard Roundtree meets Clint Eastwood.” He also describes Christoph’s character as “little aloof to what slavery actually is” and one that is “not familiar with everything, and when he sees atrocities, it’s Greek to him.”

Basically they will teach each other necessary things in order to move forward towards their goals. According to Fox, Dr King Schultz (Waltz) will teach Django “certain things he needs to become a whole man, and [Django] also teaches Christoph that when life deals you these cards, here’s what you’ve got to do.”

“But Django lets him know this is the way the world is and we got to get used to it. He teaches Django certain things he needs to become a whole man, and [Django] also teaches Christoph that when life deals you these cards, here’s what you’ve got to do.”

This is what Foxx had to say about Tarantino’s take on the issues of slavery:

There’s a beautiful way [Tarantino] found for the characters to talk to each other. It’s mindblowing. You’ve never heard it this way. You’ve seen movies deal with slavery — or westerns that never dealt with slavery – do it the safe way. This way is like … wow.

Well Tarantino has been known to create magnificent dialogue in his movies, but to see it address the issues of slavery will be something we have never seen from the director. And considering this is coming from Tarantino, Django Unchained will truly be something special.

The film also stars Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, M.C. Gainey, Garrett Dillahunt, Dennis Christopher, Gerald McRaney, Laura Cayouette, Don Johnson, Tom Savini, and Sacha Baron Cohen. Django Unchained opens December 25th.
