The first image of Leonardo DiCaprio in "Django Unchained" has arrived online courtesy of EW.com, and it looks positively devilish
No, seriously: like the Devil. From the red jacket to the Tony Stark-y goatee to the pointy eyebrows, DiCaprio is all bad-business as the villainous plantation owner who kidnaps Broomhilda (Kerry Washington), the wife of Jamie Foxx's title character. With the help of a bounty hunter (Christoph Waltz), Django must infiltrate Candie's ranch, fittingly called Candyland, and exact revenge.
“All Django wants to do is get his wife,” Foxx told EW's Anthony Breznican about the new Quentin Tarantino film. “He’s not trying to cure or solve slavery. He just wants to get his life back.”
Foxx said that Tarantino's tackles slavery in a way that few Westerns have ever attempted.
"There’s a beautiful way [Tarantino] found for the characters to talk to each other," he said. "It’s mindblowing."

"Django Unchained" is out in theaters on Christmas Day.
