Ahead of its world premiere at the Rome Film Festival this October, Sky and CANAL+ have shared the first trailer for the upcoming western drama series Django.
Loosely based on Sergio Corbucci’s classic Spaghetti Western, the series stars Matthias Schoenaerts in the title role made famous by Franco Nero and follows Django’s efforts to reconnect with his estranged daughter Sarah (Lisa Vicari) and her husband John (Nicholas Pinnock), which brings him into conflict with the ruthless Elizabeth Thurman (Noomi Rapace).
Set in Texas in the late 1800s, Django is a jaded cowboy in search of the daughter he thought he’d lost. In following her trail, he comes upon New Babylon, a town at the bottom of a crater, where all outcasts are welcome and where everyone is equal and free. Here, Django discovers that his 20-year-old daughter Sarah is alive and set to marry John Ellis, the founder of New Babylon.
Sarah – who blames her father for the death of their family, massacred many years earlier while he was at war – wants Django to leave. But he refuses to give up and does everything in his power to get a second chance with her, becoming a valuable ally for Ellis, who must defend the town from Elizabeth Thurman’s attacks. Unbeknownst to them, Django, John, and Sarah are linked by a web of secrets and a dark past bound to resurface.
Django is coming soon to Sky and NOW TV.
