New official pictures from Django Unchained

Empire magazine has published some pictures from their visit of the Django Unchained set from a few weeks back. They’re quoting Jamie Foxx about his character saying “This is a love story. He’s not trying to stop slavery. He’s not trying to do anything but find the love of his life – which is like trying to find a needle in a world of haystacks.” To read the full text you’ll have to pick up the next issue of the magazine, but we found some more pictures and larger versions released by Sony Pictures on a different website.

Interesting trivia: The saloon Dr. Schultz is standing in front of, is called  Minnesota Clay, which is the title of a spaghetti western.

We’ll be back with more Django Unchained news shortly, make sure you follow us on the social channels. As was circulated yesterday, the teaser trailer will most likely be attached to Ridley Scott’s Prometheus. So if you were not sure whether to see that or not, now there’s an additional reason to do so.

UPDATE: We found another still, showing FRANCO NERO!

Set in the South two years before the Civil War, DJANGO UNCHAINED stars Academy Award®-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 Award®-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 and Schultz’s search ultimately leads them to Calvin Candie (Academy Award®-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 Award®-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…
