Tarantino's Django Unchained Looks Finger Lickin' Good.

Not every highly-anticipated film this year involves spandex-clad muscle-men saving the world by punching each other in the face. Let's not forget that Sir Quentin Tarantino also has a new movie releasing in 2012: Django Unchained, his riff on classic westerns.

Those gadabouts at Entertainment Weekly seem to somehow have beaten us to the scoop by scoring the first official shots of the three main characters in costume. Check out Jamie Foxx as the titular character Django at the link, as well as Christoph Waltz as some kind of wild west hairy galoot. But the image that really surprised me was to learn that dreamy Leonardo DiCaprio appears to be playing the young Colonel Sanders:
I'm a big fan of your chicken.
I can only assume that this film is largely about the young Colonel's quest to gather 11 secret herbs and spices with the aid of his trusty hammer. It's exhausting work and it also results in the invention of the refresher towelette. Which basically changed the way we view the world today. I'm a huge fan of designer facial hair in films - especially on villains - and this appears to be some fine work from Leo. I may cosplay as him in the future.

If Tarantino manages to entertainment even half as much as Inglorious Bastards then this will be one to look out for. Assuming modern audiences are still capable of sitting through a film which doesn't contain a Hulk.
