It took 130 days of principal photography, but Django Unchained has finally wrapped that segment of the film’s development. Post-production is set to begin shortly for the Jamie Foxx, Leonardo DiCaprio-starrer validating the notion that Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds follow-up would certainly be able to make it out the door in time for a Christmas release.
The film is not exactly a stranger to audiences as the trailers have been out there. Many are suggesting this could be one of his best efforts to date as the promos we have seen so far had a lot of Tarantino fans very excited for its unique plot and loaded ensemble. Django Unchained tells the story a German bounty hunter (Christoph Waltz) teaming with a slave (Jamie Foxx) to seek out vengeance across the south and ultimately free Djanjo’s wife (Kerry Washington) from the vicious Cavlin Candy (Leonardo DiCaprio.)
General consensus is that Django Unchained will ultimately be the top box office draw of Tarantino’s directorial career, beating Inglourious Basterds which grossed $120 million domestically. Global totals might be tougher to pass though as Basterds banked another $201 million from foreign markets alone.
Django Unchained releases into theaters nationwide on December 25.
