'Django Unchained'

<b>Release date:</b> Dec. 25
<br><br>
<b>Blockbuster, Oscar bait or something else?</b> Oscar bait (maybe)
<br><br>
There's still a lot we don't know about Quentin Tarantino's latest. But we do know that Jamie Foxx plays a freed slave who teams with a bounty hunter (Christoph Waltz) to rescue his true love (Kerry Washington) from an evil plantation owner (Leonardo DiCaprio). And we also know that a longer than expected production schedule, including various script and casting changes, left Tarantino racing to make sure the movie is finished by its target Christmas Day release. Whether that results in a broad hit like "Inglourious Basterds" or a cult favorite like "Jackie Brown," Tarantino has proven every film he makes is a must-see.
