Django Unchained vs. Les Miserables
Quentin Tarantino’s Christmas Day flick, Django Unchained, is set in the Deep South and was filmed in and around New Orleans. It follows freed slave Django (played by Jamie Foxx) as he treks across America with a bounty hunter. Leonardo DiCaprio plays plantation owner Calvin Candie, with Samuel L. Jackson as one of his slaves. Competing with the movie on its opening day is the remake of Les Miserables starring Anne Hathaway as Fantine. Either way, you won’t leave the theater filled with the spirit of Christmas, but a new video from Funny or Die starring Hathaway and Jackson in a “sadoff” helps determine which movie will be more depressing.
Jackon: You try being a black man in the South in the 1800s.
Hathaway: My character works in a factory, everyone is mean to her, she loses her job …
And here are the movie trailers in case you’re not sure which is sadder yet:
