Django Unchained Featurette Goes Deep Behind The Scenes Of Tarantino's Epic
Quentin Tarantino is one of those filmmakers fans canít get enough of. Every time he puts a new movie out, they scour the Internet seeking insight from the director, his cast, his crew and beyond to learn more about the production, and Tarantinoís process. The work Tarantino puts into his handwritten screenplays is of particular interest to up-and-coming filmmakers and writers. And this feature, shared by the Weinstein Company, is going to be like an early Christmas gift for Tarantino and Django Unchained fanatics.
Thereís no confirmation as to where this clip is supposed to air, but it feels like a supplement on an upcoming Django Blu-ray or DVD. Itís loaded with cast interviews as they rave about Tarantinoís dialogue. Some of the clips, like Leonardo DiCaprioís answers, were taken from the Django press day. The rest of the cast takes time to talk about their process while filming on set. Whatís missing? Insight from Tarantino himself. You get snippets of him working on set. But the normally verbose director is in short supply here, and thatís a shame.
Against all odds, Tarantinoís violent drama, centered around vengeance and slavery, has become the director's highest-grossing film. It has earned $151 million in the States, and an additional $158M overseas. The movie courted controversy, but that seemed to boost its attendance. And it will look to add an Oscar or two to its conquests at the Academy Awards, where it is nominated for Cinematography, Sound Editing, Screenplay, Supporting Actor (Christoph Waltz) and Best Picture of the Year.
