UPDATED: First 'Django Unchained' Poster Arrives

UPDATE: The domestic poster has also now debuted (via the official website) and it's exactly the same just in a different language.

The first poster for Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained has arrived online in the form of the Spanish-language teaser you see below (via Sony Pictures International who will be handling foreign distribution), conjuring thoughts of Saul Bass artwork meets imagery from the Coen brothers' No Country for Old Men.

Django Unchained is set to hit theaters on December 25 and centers on a freed slave (Jamie Foxx) who seeks to reunite with Broomhilda (Kerry Washington), his slave wife, a journey which will see him team up with Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz), a German bounty hunter, to take down Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio), an evil plantation owner.

Additional members of the stacked cast include Samuel L. Jackson, Gerald McRaney, Dennis Christopher, Kurt Russell, M.C. Gainey, Don Johnson, Tom Savini, Anthony LaPaglia, RZA, Misty Upham, James Remar, Rex Linn, James Russo, Tom Wopat and Sacha Baron Cohen.

Check out the poster below and for a larger look click here.

If you're wondering about the website URL at the bottom of the poster, it points to the official Spanish website where the film will be called Django Desencadenado.

    Oh I hope the American version is the same and/or similar! Movie posters needs to be back to being art work as well promotional material... this is a great example of that... I hope all the promotional materials on this film can be in this same category...

    Desencadenado means unchained, not triggered.

    A slave narrative? lawd ham mercy. Quentin is going to go overboard with the "N" word on this one.

    This is what fIlm posters are supposed to look like. This is pop-art that should be admired and framed. Where can I purchase one of these beauty's?

    Thems the facts

    • Jimmy Diamies

    Cool Poster ....its a keeper & one which i wud like to buy asap.....The fact that Tarantino is as much a fanboy as anybody else is the reason we always get such works of art for his movies, another case in point, the poster for Death proof....

    Is this movie Tarantino's version of MANDINGO?

    Tarantino has cited MANDINGO on several occasions throughout his career, especially in the '90s when he argued it was the greatest exploitation flick ever made by a Hollywood studio.

    The thing is MANDINGO is a shocking movie. I saw it recently and my jaw fell to the floor. Paramount Pictures must have been on LSD when they gave the greenlight to make MANDINGO. The level of racism, sexual violence and nastiness in that film is overwhelming.

    I have a nasty feeling that Tarantino will be channelling the ghost of MANDINGO in DJANGO UNCHAINED. The poster above already makes this project look like a '70s ‘slavesploitation’ movie. Not sure that audiences nowadays will tolerate the tone of such a movie. Furthermore, Tarantino has never gotten a bad performance from an actor yet, meaning the end product will perhaps be one of the most controversial, confrontational and challenging movie of recent years.
