R | | Drama, Western
With the help of a German bounty hunter, a freed slave sets out to rescue his wife from a brutal Mississippi plantation owner.
Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz) reminds Monsieur Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio) that his slave D'Artagnan (Ato Essandoh) is named for the hero of Alexandre Dumas' novels, and that Dumas was one-quarter Black. Waltz and DiCaprio have appeared in adaptations of those novels: Waltz played Cardinal Richelieu in The Three Musketeers (2011) and DiCaprio played King Louis XIV and his identical twin brother Phillippe in The Man in the Iron Mask (1998).
Who's that stumblin' around in the dark? State your business or prepare to get winged!
As Calvin Candie rides in the carriage towards his house the smoke from his cigarette blows away to his right. When the carriage then parks up for him to introduce Schultz and Django to Stephen the smoke is blowing across in front of the house, i.e. in the opposite direction.
The font used in the opening credits is the same font as in the original Django's credits.
