There’s only five days left until Quentin Tarantino’s DJANGO UNCHAINED is finally unleashed into theaters nationwide! But, since it comes out on Christmas Day, you’ll have to wait just a bit longer to unwrap QT’s gift to movie lovers.
Easily the year’s most anticipated movie, DJANGO UNCHAINED stars Jamie Foxx as a freed slave turned bounty hunter out on a ruthless mission to save the woman he loves. The film also stars Christoph Waltz, Jonah Hill, Samuel L. Jackson and Leonardo DiCaprio as a villainous plantation owner. In classic Tarantino style he’s using his previous tried and true acting staples (Waltz & Jackson) and teaming them up with other top tier talent.
And if you’ve seen the trailer (of course you have) you know this depraved southern epic is an almost guaranteed masterpiece full of blood, brutality and laughs, probably all in the same scenes. And just to make sure your expectations are at an all-time high critics are chiming in with unadulterated praise:
"Mr. Tarantino lives up to his reputation as an independent thinker and a dispenser of vibrant, thrilling ideas." – Rex Reed, New York Observer
“Like all of the best pop art, Tarantino's film is both seriously entertaining and seriously thoughtful.” –Scott Foundas, Village Voice
And not to get all serious, but I think it’s worth noting that this is a film, like Tarantino’s last effort INGLORIOUS BASTERDS, has something very pertinent and very serious to say. One could almost call it a companion piece (or drunk Uncle) to Spielberg’s LINCOLN. So not matter if you come just to have a bloody good time or a deeply felt cinematic experience DJANGO UNCHAINED is sure to deliver the goods.
Also, in anticipation for the release of DJANGO UNCHAINED, we’ll be screening KILL BILL VOL. 1 and KILL BILL VOL. 2, both in 35mm, at the Ritz starting December 23rd, 29th and 30th.
Tickets are now on sale for DJANGO UNCHAINED at various Alamo Drafthouse locations! (R.J. LaForce)
