Django Unchained is the epic, action-packed Spaghetti Western from writer/director Quentin Tarantino which was nominated for five 2012 Academy Awards, taking home awards for Best Original Screenplay (for Tarantino) and Best Supporting Actor (the second time Christoph Waltz has won for appearing in a Tarantino film).
The film is a classic Tarantino revenge story about a slave, played by Jamie Foxx, who, with the help of a German bounty hunter, Waltz, rises up from the brutality of his former life to exact his own brand of personal justice in his quest to free his slave wife, Kerry Washington, from an evil plantation owner, Leonardo DiCaprio.
The Blu-ray comes with two exclusive featurettes: Reimagining the Spaghetti Western: The Horses & Stunts of Django Unchained, giving viewers a look at the making of the film. The Costume Designs of Sharen Davis chronicles the costume choices of designer Sharen Davis, who imagined, designed and created every article of clothing and accessory featured in the film, from Django’s first outfit as a free man in vibrant blue to Calvin Candie’s three piece suits. Both the Blu-ray and DVD come with the featurette Remembering J. Michael Riva: The Production Design of Django Unchained, giving viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the selection of settings and style that Riva, who was the driving force behind the set design, used to visually tell Django’s story. The Blu-ray and DVD also come with the Django Unchained Soundtrack Promo.
