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?
Django Unchained - Page 4
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?
We're pretty sure that 'Django Unchained' is going to be awesome. After all, it's Quentin Tarantino making a racially charged western -- what could possibly go wrong? Like all of Tarantino's films, this one looks like it'll have a lot going on, so much that you can sell the film in a dozen different ways to a dozen different audiences and ultimately please them all. Much like how the latest trailer was completely different than the previous two, the latest TV spots are completely different than any of the others.
A lot of negativity surrounds Quentin Tarantino lately. Along with repeated warnings regarding his impending retirement from film, we've heard word of editing problems plaguing his upcoming 'Django Unchained' which threaten to undermine the film's...
Even with all the word of last minute tweaks, it looks like we're less than a month away from Quentin Tarantino's 'Django Unchained,' and now there's a new trailer that offers a lot of shooting, and a smattering of new footage.
Quentin Tarantino is serious about this retirement business. The 'Django Unchained' director hinted that he might only have a few movies left in him and he's not just talking to hear himself talk. In a new interview, Tarantino insists he's almost ready to hang it up and talks about plans he has for the future.
'Django Unchained' is set to hit theaters in less than a month with the first press screenings scheduled to take place in about two weeks. But writer/director Quentin Tarantino is still hard at work and, after an early screening of the film, going back to the editing room to try and fix the film.
Quentin Tarantino films are often noted for their spectacular soundtracks but up until now, has never had an original song in one of his movies. That looks to change with 'Django Unchained' which looks to have a soundtrack filled with a number of popular hip-hop and R&B artists. So who's in?
For the build up to the December 25 release of 'Django Unchained,' Quentin Tarantino has started to do interviews, and in one of his latest he listed the actors who might have been his Django were it not for Jamie Foxx. That list? Idris Elba, Chris Tucker, Terrence Howard, Michael K. Williams, Tyrese Gibson and Will Smith.
