The first teaser poster has arrived for writer-director Quentin Tarantino's upcoming Django Unchained and it looks, well, pretty familiar. Just as Tarantino's Spaghetti Western-inspired movie started to take off last year, a fan-made poster of a silhouetted gunman on a horse shooting the chains of a shackled man appeared. The new teaser poster, released by The Weinstein Company, uses a similar red background and chain, and features two silhouetted figures at the bottom, presumably the freed slave Django (Jamie Foxx) and bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz).
The studio has also released an official synopsis, which offers a detailed description of the movie, to the point of seeming spoilerish. While the movie was known to be about Django and his attempts to rescue his wife from a sadistic slave owner (Leonardo DiCaprio), Tarantino has plenty more in store for audiences, which should come as no surprise after having to split Kill Bill into two movies. read the synopsis and see the full poster >>
