‘Django Unchained’ Still Editing At The Last Minute

'Django Unchained' Still Editing At The Last Minute

Right now, as you’re reading this, there’s some pretty fierce last minute editing going on for Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained , in order to get it ready for Academy and film critics award screenings, starting on December 5th.

Kris Tapley of HitFlix reported that, as late as two weeks ago, the film’s running time ran a whopping 192 minutes, which was most likely the same cut that was screened to Sony Pictures executives that I reported about just a few weeks ago (HERE).

And according to him, “they’ve experimented with it since, even re-ordering some scenes.”

However, there have been some hush-hush private screenings already for the film, and those who saw it say that the version they saw ran around 165 minutes. And I have heard from a very reliable source that there is an advance screening scheduled for next Monday in Detroit, but for whom I do not know.

However, the film is still on track for its December 25th Christmas Day opening, and even the British film magazine Empire, for their latest issue, has the film as the cover story, issuing two different covers.

Though the one above is the one I like the most.

Martin Scorsese was still editing Hugo in 3D well into autumn, yet it released in December. I would be shocked if Django is shown Christmas Day. MLK Jr weekend would be received better, given the content. Time will tell.
