I’m okay with admitting that I wish to G-d I had the funds and resources to attend Cannes Film Festival every year with my wife, but I don’t right now. So in the mean time I check my favorite movie blogs for whatever bit of juicy info I can get from France. Today we have been blessed with a doozy. Collider reports today that those in attendance at Canne’s were treated by The Weinstein Company to seven minutes of unseen footage from Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained starring Christoph Waltz (Inglorious Bastards), Jamie Foxx (Ray) and Leonardo DiCaprio (The Departed). WTF! Okay…got that out of the way…this is amazing news! Fears had begun to creep up my spine about production problems after hearing about the Kirk Russell/Sacha Baron Cohen debacle, but this news is music to my ears and says without a doubt that things are still moving forward. So far the reviews about the clip are stellar and I wouldn’t expect nothing else. What rings loud and you’ll read it too, is that everyone seems to be having so much fun in the clips. The mood is completely QT, from Jamie Foxx blasting away with his six gun to James Brown’s “The Big Payback” to Leonardo DiCaprio peppering the screen with the word “NIGGER” ( to black to type N bombs). Just a lot of cinematic fun fodder to be had here. I can’t wait for a trailer. Django Unchained releases this Christmas. You can check out the whole story and tweet reviews at Collider.
