Trilogy! Hollywood loves everything in threes and this week seems to be no exception. Of course, there’s the announcement today of the new “Star Wars” trilogy coming for your wallet starting in 2015, and just yesterday, Quentin Tarantino revealed his upcoming “Django Unchained” might be the middle part of trilogy sandwich starting with “Inglorious Basterds.” Well, until we find out if that will actually happen or will be a continual question mark like “Kill Bill 3,” some new pics from “Django Unchained” have dropped.
Among the highlights are new looks at Walton Goggins and Don Johnson. Goggins plays Billy Crash, one of Calvin Candie’s slave wranglers while Johnson plays slave owner Spencer “Big Daddy” Bennett who employs the men that sold Django and Broomhilda into slavery. The latter in particular impressed with some potentially scene stealing charm in the footage we saw at Cannes, so we’ll just say keep an eye out for his performance. As for the rest of the pics, we get more eyefuls of Jamie Foxx, Kerry Washington, Christoph Waltz and more.
A sizzle reel lands at Lucca later this week, followed a possible Rome premiere in November following the Rome Film Festival but as always, we’ll see. But one thing is certain, “Django Unchained” gets opened on Christmas Day in theaters across the country. [Quentin Tarantino Archives]
