Quentin Tarantino and co were all on hand yesterday to offer an extended sneak peak at his upcoming western DJANGO UNCHAINED, giving fans an 8-minute look at "just the first half" of the film.
The film, for those of you who have yet to see any snippets, is set in the South of slavery-era America and stars Jamie Foxx as Django, a slave who's promised freedom by Christoph Waltz's bounty hunter character, Dr. King Schultz. Kerry Washington plays Foxx's wife, who's still enslaved to Leonardo Dicaprio's plantation owner, Calvin Candie
Although the villainous DiCaprio was unable to make the panel, Foxx, Washington, Waltz and co-stars WALTER GOGGINS and Don Johnson, were all on hand to speak about the film along with the film's mastermind Tarantino.
The film will contain all the QT hallmarks of blood and guts on the screen and in the script, with the movie rumoured to use the N-word more than a 100 times - something the eight minutes of previewing did not skimp on.
The topic of race and racism was rife at the panel, with Foxx bringing up how he had long been on the receiving end of racial abuse, having grown up in Texas. Meanwhile Waltz admitted that this is something he was hardly familiar with prior to recording the film, having grown up in Vienna.
