Anchor Bay Entertainment and The Weinstein Company announced today the Blu-ray™ Combo Pack with UltraViolet and DVD release of the critically acclaimed film, DJANGO UNCHAINED, from writer and director Academy Award®-winner Quentin Tarantino (Inglorious Basterds, Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill Vol. I and Kill Bill Vol. 2).

Set in the South two years before the Civil War, DJANGO UNCHAINED stars Academy Award®-winner Jamie Foxx as Django, a slave whose brutal history with his former owners lands him face-to-face with German-born bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz (Academy Award®-winner Christoph Waltz). Schultz is on the trail of the murderous Brittle brothers, and only Django 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. 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 organization closes in on them. If Django and Schultz are to escape with Broomhilda, they must choose between independence and solidarity, between sacrifice and survival.

DJANGO UNCHAINED recently won 2 Academy Awards® for Best Writing for an Original Screenplay for Quentin Tarantino and Best Actor in a Supporting Role for Christoph Waltz. The film was nominated for a total of 5 Academy Awards® including Best Picture, Best Cinematography and Best Sound Editing. Additionally, DJANGO UNCHAINED won 2 Golden Globe awards for Best Screenplay for Quentin Tarantino and Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role for Christoph Waltz. The film was nominated for a total of 5 Golden Globe Awards including Best Motion Picture – Drama, Quentin Tarantino for Best Director and Leonardo DiCaprio for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role.

DJANGO UNCHAINED heads to retail on April 16, 2013 for an SRP of $39.99 for the Blu-ray™ Combo Pack with UltraViolet and $29.98 for the DVD.

The DJANGO UNCHAINED Blu-ray™ Combo Pack with UltraViolet and exclusive special features.

Much prefer the images in Ronald's post (the cover and poster art in the Amazon link) to the "official" covers.
