The minimalist teaser poster for Django Unchained, Quentin Tarantino's new movie starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Jamie Foxx, has just been released.
Showing a broken chain over the silhouette of two gun-toting men – one who sports broken chains – and simply stating "The New Film by Quentin Tarantino – Christmas," the poster channels the style of the late great Saul Bass (whose memorable black-on-red movie poster imagery elevated such titles as Vertigo, West Side Story and Spartacus).
Tarantino's follow-up to Inglourious Basterds follows a former slave-turned-bounty hunter who sets out to rescue his wife from a ruthless plantation owner with the help of his mentor.
Christoph Waltz, Kerry Washington, Samuel L. Jackson, Sacha Baron Cohen, Don Johnson and Kurt Russell also star in the period Western, which Tarantino is calling a "Southern."
Django Unchained arrives in theaters December 25, 2012.
