The spaghetti western namesake of Quentin Tarantino’s new movie is booked into select theaters, including the New Beverly in Los Angeles and Film Forum in New York, a few days ahead of Django Unchained, which debuts December 25th. Sergio Corbucci’s 1966 Django opens December 21st via Rialto Pictures. Franco Nero plays the title character — “a coffin-dragging gunslinger” caught between the KKK and a gang of Mexican bandits. Jamie Foxx plays Django — “the D is silent” — in Tarantino’s tale of a slave who teams with a bounty hunter (Christolph Waltz) to save his wife (Kerry Washington) from the clutches of a wicked plantation owner (Leonardo DiCaprio).
