Though they may have taken a long time in finishing their shoot, it looks like Quentin Tarantino's latest 'Django Unchained' will be hitting theaters just in time for Christmas (release date: December 25), and though we haven't heard much about the film recently, we've just gotten a new 'Django Unchained' trailer.
Despite having "comic" in its title, much of the attention lavished on Comic Con these days has to do with the various movie and TV panels, not comic books. Ironically, it takes the involvement of one of the most admired filmmakers working today to get comics back into the headlines. For the record, that headline is "Quentin Tarantino Will Be Making His Comic Writing Debut By Adapting 'Django Unchained' Into A Five-Part Miniseries For DC Comics."
Looks like Quentin Tarantino's upcoming 'Django Unchained' is big enough to get its own own panel inside Comic-Con 2012's Hall H, which previously housed large panels by Disney, Sony and 'The Walking Dead,' to name just a few. Well, when you add names like Leonardo DiCaprio, Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz and Samuel L. Jackson to Tarantino, it's bound to get some special attention.
We hope you've got your nerdy overnight bags packed and ready to go because Comic-Con 2012 is fast approaching. We've given you the full rundown on TV panels, but what about all those amazing movie panels? Read on for a full schedule of movie panels and what to expect from the big studios this year.
'Django Unchained' is already ramping up its marketing campaign despite not hitting theaters until Christmas. Last night during the BET Awards, Quentin Tarantino and The Weinstein Co. debuted an extended :60 TV spot for the film with some new footage (including new looks at Leonardo DiCaprio and Samuel L. Jackson).
The trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Django Unchained’ showed us something we haven’t seen before: A sadistic side of Leonardo DiCaprio. Oh, we’ve see DiCaprio unhinged before. Scorsese taps into an animalistic side of the Oscar-nominated actor at regular intervals. (Rent ‘Shutter Island’ or ‘Gangs of New York’ for examples.) But the Leo on display in Tarantino’s film is … different. He’s crazy. And he’s loving it.
