It was a star-studded night at New York's Ziegfield Theater Tuesday December 11, for the premiere of director Quentin Tarantino's new film Django Unchained.
Tarantino, who was there with Uma Thurman talked about how movie came about.
"I had an idea for a long time of a slave who becomes a bounty hunter and goes out looking for white guys that used to be [plantation] overseers. But that wasn't a story, that was just an idea," Tarantino said while on the red carpet. "So for eight years or so that idea just fermented. And then about a year and a half ago the story came to me."
The film's stars Leonardo Dicaprio, Samuel L. Jackson and Jamie Foxx, who plays Django, were also in attendance. For Foxx, accepting the lead role was an easy decision.
"First before I read the script it was Quentin Tarantino," Foxx said. "Being able to work with someone like that you're all in."
Others stars who attended the premiere included 50 Cent, Olivia Wilde, Christoph Waltz, Don Johnson, Zoe Kravitz, Zach Braff, Sharon Osbourne, Liv Tyler, Q-Tip and John Legend.
Django Unchained opens nationwide on December 25.
