Django is Off the Chain According to Those at Early Screenings


Quentin Tarantino has put out great film after great film.  It’s been three years since his amazing take on Nazi-occupied France, Inglourious Basterds, hit the screen.  Basterds rousing success has built an unbelievable amount of anticipation around Django Unchained.  Django Unchained is set to hit theaters on Christmas day, but reactions from early screenings over the past weekend are in, and it appears as if Tarantino has done it again.  We won’t be seeing full reviews until we get a little closer to the film’s release, so some quick reactions to the film will have to suffice.  Many in attendance have highlighted the film’s violence, sense of humor, and standout performances.  The Exhibitor Relations Twitter page has revealed that Django is the longest Tarantino film, checking in at 2 hours 45 minutes and 11 seconds.  Hit the jump to see what some in attendance have had to say so far!

Django Unchained’s all star cast features Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio, Samuel L. Jackson, Kerry Washington, Dennis Christopher, Gerald McRaney, Don Johnson, RZA, Anthony LaPaglia, Tom Wopat, James Remar, James Russo, Todd Allen, and Jonah Hill and hits theaters on Christmas day.

Jeff Goldsmith (@yogoldsmith) – “As for performances all were on par with what you want from a QT film = fantastic!”

Looper director Rian Johnson (@rcjohnso) – “Django was terrific. DiCaprio blows the roof off the joint.”
