Now that three trailers and a slew of character posters have accumulated, anticipation for Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained” is at a high. The press is chomping at the bit for the film’s official junket days, announced by the Weinstein Company as December 15 and 16.
The New York Film Critics Circle recently set its voting date back to its usual time frame, December 3, but Weinstein reps assure us that despite the mid-month junket dates for “Django,” the NYFCC, LAFCA, HPFA, National Board of Review et al will see the film in time for their voting deadlines. That’s what DCPs are for!
The most recent trailer for “Django Unchained,” which stars Jamie Foxx, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kerry Washington, Christoph Waltz and Samuel L. Jackson, is here. The film releases wide on December 25.
