Movies have been great for the last couple weeks. We’ve gotten The Master, Looper, Argo, and shortly we’ll be getting Cloud Atlas. These are films to talk about and think about for days. But this is an awesome year for movies, because in a couple weeks we’ll also be getting Django Unchained. And that’s pretty awesome. Now there’s some character posters for the film’s five leads.

So let’s start with Leonardo DiCaprio. This is likely the film that will win him an Academy Award if he plays his cards right. A flashy role that shows he’s got a sense of humor and can play against type is just what the doctor ordered.

Here’s the one for Samuel L. Jackson, who probably won’t get nominated, but deserves an Academy Award at this point for being awesome.

And here’s Kerry Washington. It’s hard to know how plum a role Broomhilda is, but if the Academy loves this film, it’s possible she could get nominated and/or win.

Here’s Christoph Waltz in a role that was specifically written for him. That’s pretty awesome.

And here’s Django himself, Jamie Foxx.

The Quentin Tarantino film opens this Christmas (December 25), and even though movies have been pretty great lately, this is still our most anticipated film of the year.

Are you stoked for Django Unchained?
