In an interview with the entire cast of Django Unchained, Samuel Jackson asks the interviewer to say the N-word

Skip to 13:56 for the headline of this post, Samuel Jackson just does what he always does and does it perfectly; he gets people out of their comfort zone. If you’re a film fanatic like myself, watch the rest of the interview. Not only do you get a very candid Quentin Tarantino, as only Jake Hamilton (the interviewer) could ascertain, but you get to hear about Jamie Foxx’s past and see Christoph Waltz with a shaved head and no beard, which is off-putting at first. There are also some great scenes from the movie if you haven’t seen it yet, you know, just to get you amped up.

Quentin Taratino says that Django Unchained and Inglorious Basterds may be two pieces of a three piece set

Tarantino, when it comes to his films, is an absolute master. Although his ideas may seem outlandish and at times just absurd, he somehow manages to pull it off in an astonishing manner. He has always talked about the inter-connectivity of his films and just this week he mentioned that his two newest films, Django Unchained and Inglorious Basterds, may very well be connected.

Quentin Tarantino is well-known by fans as a guy who likes to construct inter-connected narratives. His characters and their relatives pass from one film to another, to the point where he’s got two “universes,” describing the real life of his general character set, and the films those people might go see. There are even a few characters (such as Harvey Keitel’s Winston Wolf, from Pulp Fiction) who can cross between universes.

So it isn’t a surprise to hear that Tarantino is thinking of his two most recent films, Inglourious Basterds and the upcoming Django Unchained, as two thirds of a loosely connected trilogy. But what does that mean for us?

Tarantino told Total Film,

Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained bespeak a trilogy. As different as they are, there is a companion piece quality. There might very well be a third one. I just don’t know what it is yet.

In addition to sharing Christoph Waltz as a major player, the two films both offer Tarantino’s own take on history, with World War II and slavery in the United States offering the films their respective historical background.

Tarantino has talked of making a ’30s gangster film, and so it’s easy to assume that might end up being the third film. (As The Playlist, which passed along the quotes, guesses.) Or we could see something entirely different from the director. He’s been working at a slightly faster pace recently than he did for some time, so lets hope this burst of inspiration continues to allow him to close the trilogy with similar speed.

SPOILER ALERT: Tarantino releases the synopsis of ‘Django Unchained’ and it sounds incredibly awesome.



A few days ago Quentin Tarantino released the synopsis for his new movie ‘Django Unchained’ which has been building up quite a bit of hype being that Tarantino is amazing and it’s been a while since his last film. After doing some research and reading the synopsis they released, the plot seems like it will be absolutely incredible, and the cast will only make it that much more unfathomably amazing; Leo DiCaprio, Christopher Waltz, Samuel L Jackson, and Kurt Russell just to name a few. The movie is coming out on Christmas day and should be a pretty decent present for everybody on planet Earth. Read the synopsis underneath the ONLY picture that has been released from the set; It’s of Christopher Waltz looking reading to kick some arse. And again, SPOILERS ARE INCLUDED.

Set in the South two years before the Civil War, DJANGO UNCHAINED stars Academy Award®-winner Jamie Foxx as Django, a slave whose brutal history with his former owners lands him face-to-face with German-born bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz (Academy Award®-winner Christoph Waltz).  Schultz is on the trail of the murderous Brittle brothers, and only Django can lead him to his bounty.  The unorthodox Schultz acquires Django with a promise to free him upon the capture of the Brittles – dead or alive.

Success leads Schultz to free Django, though the two men choose not to go their separate ways.  Instead, Schultz seeks out the South’s most wanted criminals with Django by his side.  Honing vital hunting skills, Django remains focused on one goal: finding and rescuing Broomhilda (Kerry Washington), the wife he lost to the slave trade long ago.

Django and Schultz’s search ultimately leads them to Calvin Candie (Academy Award®-nominee Leonardo DiCaprio), the proprietor of “Candyland,” an infamous plantation where slaves are groomed by trainer Ace Woody (Kurt Russell) to battle each other for sport.  Exploring the compound under false pretenses, Django and Schultz arouse the suspicion of Stephen (Academy Award®-nominee Samuel L. Jackson), Candie’s trusted house slave.  Their moves are marked, and a treacherous organization closes in on them.  If Django and Schultz are to escape with Broomhilda, they must choose between independence and solidarity, between sacrifice and survival…

Written and directed by Academy Award®-winner Quentin Tarantino, DJANGO UNCHAINED is produced by Stacey Sher, Reginald Hudlin and Pilar Savone.  The executive producers are Harvey and Bob Weinstein, Michael Shamberg, Shannon McIntosh, and James Skotchdopole.  DJANGO UNCHAINED will be released in the U.S. on December 25, 2012, and internationally by Sony Pictures.
