Argentinian Django Unchained Poster Paints Leonardo DiCaprio Blood Red
Ever since winning the Palme d'Or with Pulp Fiction at the 1994 Cannes Film Festival, international sales for every one of Quentin Tarantino's subsequent films has doubled the domestic numbers. As big a star-director as they come, his films are not only going to deliver bigger returns across the globe but the marketing also often outshines what's found at home.
The international trailer for Django Unchained released just the other day might be the best yet, and this new Argentinian poster also gives any of the American one-sheets a run for their money. Cine 1 shared the new look and in case you're wondering, "Tomaron su libertad, ahora él tomará el control" loosely translates (I say loosely because no hablo Español) to "They took his freedom, now he takes control."
A simple but effective design at once reminiscent of the Spaghetti Westerns that Tarantino will be (at least partially) trying to emulate and also painting a pretty bleak picture. The cold, concrete grey behind our heroes, Academy Award winners Jamie Foxx and Christoph Waltz, contrasts nicely with Leonardo DiCaprio's devilish villain soaked in red. It also obviously invokes ideas of a gun shot/bullet hole (and blood splatter) but I can't help but think of the rising (or setting) sun as well. Pretty rad.
Django Unchained opens Tuesday, December 25, and the massive cast also includes Kerry Washington, Walton Goggins, Don Johnson and many more. For more images and information about the film, you can click here. Enjoy taking your family to this blood-soaked revenge drama on Christmas Day!
