Blu-ray Release: Django Unchained

April 16, 2013

Django Unchained Blu-Ray ImageToday, eOne (formally Alliance), released Django Unchained on Blu-ray and DVD.  The film was nominated for five Academy Awards including Best Picture, and deservingly won two, for Best Screenplay and Supporting Actor (Christoph Waltz).

Django Unchained tells the story of Django (Jamie Foxx), a slave in 1800s Southern USA, who teams up with Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz), a German bounty hunter who promises to give Django his freedom in exchange for helping him hunt down a notorious criminal running a slave trading operation.  Django agrees – if only to fulfill his own goal of finding his wife who was sold to one of these traders years ago.  What follows is a film with fascinating depth even if the violence in the final act goes quite hard to watch.

You can read John C.’s full thoughts on the film in his article here.

The Blu-ray includes the following special features (En Anglais Seulement):

• Re-Imagining the Spaghetti Western: The Horses + Stunts of Django Unchained

• Remembering J. Michael Riva: The Production Design of Django Unchained

• The Costume Designs of Sharen Davis

• 20 Years in the Making: The Tarantino XX Blu-ray Collection
