The much anticipated Blu-ray and DVD release of Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained has been moved forward from June.
Available to pre-order from Amazon.co.uk, the title will now be released on May 20th.
The film stars Jamie Foxx as a slave whose brutal history with his former owners lands him face-to-face with German-born bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz).
Schultz is on the trail of the murderous Brittle brothers, and only Django (Foxx) 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 (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 (Samuel L. Jackson), Candie’s trusted house slave. Their moves are marked, and a treacherous organisation closes in on them.
If Django and Schultz are to escape with Broomhilda, they must choose between independence and solidarity, between sacrifice and survival…
Sony Pictures Home Entertainment will release a DVD, Blu-ray with UltraViolet Digital Copy and Blu-ray with UltraViolet Digital Copy Steelbook edition on May 20th.
All three are available for pre-order here.
