'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.
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.
Quentin Tarantino's latest film - 'Django Unchained' - hasn't even hit theaters yet (you'll have to wait until Christmas Day for that) but talk has already turned to what his next film might be. It seems early to speculate on another film but when a director as good as Tarantino talks retirement, you need to enjoy what few movies you may have left. So what's Tarantino got up his sleeve for his next project?
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.
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?
New on DVD, Blu-ray and streaming this week, old-pro action with 'The Expendables 2,' Quentin Tarantino goes over-the-top, and some gret overlooked movies arrive on streaming.
