Django Unchained

Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kerry Washington and Samuel L. Jackson star in writer/director Quentin Tarantino's brutal, blood-soaked revenge fantasy set in the pre-Civil War South. Django is a slave whose brutal history with his former owners lands him face-to-face with German-born bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz. The two men form an unlikely partnership, seeking out the South's most wanted criminals, while forging ahead towards one dangerous goal: finding and rescuing Broomhilda, the wife Django lost to the slave trade long ago.

Donnie Yen and Takeshi Kaneshiro star in an action-packed martial arts tale. Liu Jin-xi is a village craftsman whose quiet life is irrevocably shattered by the arrival of two notorious gangsters in the local general store.

Convinced that Liu's martial arts mastery belies a hidden history of training by one of the region's vicious clans, Xu doggedly pursues the shy hero -- and draws the attention of China's criminal underworld in the process.
