AICN has a rundown of what was shown in the short Django Unchained tpreview in Cannes. Its spoiler-filled, so be wary if you dont want to know plot and character details. http://www.aintitcool.com/node/55901
The Django Unchained trailer will appear in theaters June 8th attached to the new Ridley Scott film, Prometheus. http://m.complex.com/pop-culture/2012/05/first-djano-unchained-trailer-to-play-with-prometheus
Some more talk about how all Tarantino’s fils take place in the same universe. Interesting that this discussion would be happening now – guess the Django Unchained anticipation has people thinking. http://kottke.org/12/05/the-unified-theory-of-quentin-tarantinos-movie-universe
Some more images from Django Unchained have been released:
More after the jump.
Reddit has a pretty good breakdown of how all the Tarantino films take place in the same universe. Be interested to see how the Django Unchained characters are connected. http://www.reddit.com/r/AskReddit/comments/ubaqq/what_fan_theories_have_blown_your_mind_with_their/c4tzvnn
The 7 minute teaser for Django Unchained that I mentioned earlier this week was played at Cannes and there are several reactions from folks that got to see it:
Awards Daily: “The Tarantino film looks like the most fun of the bunch”
Shadow & Act: ” DJANGO gets the most whoops. Plenty of blood, plenty of laughs. Looks like it will be the Cristophe Waltz show”
Total Film: “Leonardo is going bad to the bone” “This is the coolest Foxx has ever been”
Anybody make it to the Django Unchained chat at the UNO Film Festival this weekend?
…but not to the public. Sorry to disappoint.
Something to keep an eye out for: there is apparently a 10 minute scene from Django Unchained on the loose meant for international buyers. Since everything ends up on the internet these days, maybe we’ll get lucky with this scene.
The Weinstein Company are showing off a 10-minute scene from Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained” to prospective international buyers. It sounds feasible. ‘Django’ has been lensing since early in the year, and what appears to be the last leg of the shoot is happening now-ish in New Orleans.
Sad to see that Kurt Russell and Sasha Baron Cohen have both dropped out of Django Unchained. I dont recall what Cohen’s role was (I’ve seen it described as a cameo), but Russell’s was fairly small – a single scene.
