Much like 'Inglourious Basterds,' Quentin Tarantino's 'Django Unchained' makes frequent (and wonderful) use of anachronistic songs, placing modern songs over events taking place in the 1860s and somehow making it all work. Although the final soundtrack contains songs by singers as diverse as John Legend, James Brown and Jim Croce, an original track performed by Frank Ocean ended up on the cutting room floor...but you can listen to it below!
We're mere days away from the release of 'Django Unchained' on December 25, so we're surprised there's a new trailer for the film. Then again, so many trailers released now aren't intended to play before movies, but get online audiences interested and stoked for the film.
'Django Unchained' is a very good movie (read our full review here) and a Golden Globe nominee but one thing we never thought it was, is an inspiration for toys. Something about a super bloody slavery revenge thriller doesn't seem to lend itself to a toy line but apparently someone thought it did and a new set of action figures are on their way. Just in time for Christmas!
This Christmas season, two very different movies hit theaters: 'Les Miserables' and 'Django Unchained.' Yet for all their differences, the two are like in one major way: they're both pretty bleak. So stars Anne Hathaway and Samuel L. Jackson got themselves in a spirited debate (and by spirited we mean lots of curse words) in what Funny or Die is calling a "Sad Off" and you haven't lived until you've seen Anne Hathaway call Sam Jackson a motherf---er.
We've got a little while to wait until we can all bask in Quentin Tarantino's latest ode to badass cinema, 'Django Unchained', but today you can get closer to the film by listening to the entire soundtrack. And you can do that right here...for free!
'Django Unchained' hasn't even hit theaters yet (that comes on December 25) but writer/director Quentin Tarantino is already talking about the potential of an extended cut of the film. It's strange to think a 165-minute movie would get an extended cut but it looks like it might happen.
'Django Unchained' hasn't even debuted to the masses yet but we already know it's a cinematic force to be reckoned with as it's been nominated for five categories in the 2013 Golden Globes, including Best Picture and Best Director. Also gettings noms for Quentin Tarantino's latest are Leonardo DiCaprio and Christoph Waltz for Best Supporting Actors, and now you can sample a bit of their award-worthy performances in the latest clip.
The 2013 Golden Globes nominations were announced this morning when Jessica Alba, Megan Fox and Ed Helms took the press stage. Predictably, Steven Spielberg's 'Lincoln,' Kathryn Bigelow's 'Zero Dark Thirty' and Tom Hooper's 'Les Miserables' all went home happy with their respective noms, but an unexpected surprise was the inclusion of 'Django Unchained' in a total of five categories, including one for Best Picture! But who are the film's main competitors?
His name is Django and as he's quick to point out, the D is silent. It's just about the only quiet part of Quentin Tarantino's 'Django Unchained,' a boisterous, bloody blaxploitation/Western hybrid. What else would you expect from Tarantino, the modern master of genre pastiche, flavorful dialogue, and grossly exaggerated violence? Whatever 'Django''s issues -- and it has a couple -- failing to deliver on its promises isn't one of them. If anything, the issue is the exact opposite.
It's no secret that we're incredibly excited to see 'Django Unchained' and we won't beat around the bush: we're pretty jealous of everyone who got to see the first screening of the finished film last night! Although it was technically a DGA screening (appropriate since this is Quentin Tarantino's first film as a member of that guild), plenty of press-types managed to get in too. When the screening was over, phones came out of pockets, Twitter apps were fired up and opinions were shared. What did everyone think?
