I'm sure he will. Waltz and Sam Jackson are his "lucky charms" if you will.

'Django Unchained' Becomes First Quentin Tarantino Movie Released in China


"China meet Quentin.

"Django Unchained" will premiere in the People's Republic of China on April 11, Sony Pictures said Wednesday. The antebellum revenge thriller will be the first Quentin Tarantino movie ever to debut in China.

That means the Chinese are in for a whole lot of Blaxploitation and Spaghetti Western references along with a healthy dollop of the old ultra-violence. The film has grossed $402 million worldwide so far, $80 million more than Tarantino's next highest grossing film, "Inglourious Basterds." It also earned a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for star Christoph Waltz.

Sony Pictures has handled the international rollout of the hit film, which is a co-production between The Weinstein Company and Sony Pictures."

Ennio Morricone on working with Tarantino:

Quote:
“I wouldn’t like to work with him again, on anything,” Morricone told students in a music, film and television class at Rome’s LUISS University, according to Italian media reports Friday. “He said last year he wanted to work with me again ever since Inglourious Basterds, but I told him I couldn't, because he didn’t give me enough time. So he just used a song I had written previously.”

Tarantino is frustrating to work with, Morricone said, observing that the two-time Oscar winner “places music in his films without coherence" and "you can't do anything with someone like that."

Morricone said he saw Django Unchained but was not impressed: "To tell the truth, I didn't care for it," he said. "Too much blood."

That article doesn't make much sense. They claim "Morricone and Tarantino actively worked together on Inglourious Basterds, Tarantino’s 2009 reinterpretation of the end of World War II, and on both installments of the Kill Bill franchise." As far as I know, some Morricone stuff from the 60s was re-used for Kill Bill and Tarantino wanted him to do the score for Basterds but he wasn't available. I wouldn't call that "actively working together".

Morricone recently clarified some of his statements:

Quote:
What I read about my statements on Quentin Tarantino is a partial writing of my thoughts which has deprived the true meaning of what I said, isolating a part from the rest. In this way my statement sounds shocking, penalizing me and bothering me a lot.

I have a great respect for Tarantino, as I have stated several times, I am glad he chooses my music, a sign of artistic brotherhood and I am happy to have met him in Rome recently. In my opinion, the fact that Tarantino chooses different pieces of music from a work in a film makes the pieces not to be always consistent with the entire work.

The risk for me, when I compose, is not to be consistent with the film work and my desire is that the director accepts my consistency.

Tarantino proposed me to work for Inglorious Basterds, which I consider a masterpiece, but I could only had two months to work since I had to compose the soundtrack for “Baaria” directed by Giuseppe Tornatore and it was not possible.

Regarding Django, the thing is that I cannot see too much blood in a movie due to my character, is how I feel and impress me especially with a film that is made very well and where the blood is well shot. But this has nothing to do with my respect for that Tarantino which remains great.

I watched this movie on Saturday and I am impressed by it. I really enjoyed the acting of Leonardo DiCaprio and especially Christoph Waltz. A very unique and interesting story. I was surprised to see
[Show spoiler]Jonah Hill and Samuel Jackson
in the movie.
I voted 5 stars.

this is really lame:


China pulls 'Django Unchained' on day of premiere

By DIDI TANG | Associated Press – 5 hours ago

"BEIJING (AP) — "Django Unchained" became "Django Unscreened" on Thursday as Quentin Tarantino's violent slave-revenge saga was pulled from Chinese theaters on its opening day, with the importer blaming an unspecified technical problem.
The rare suspension order by China Film Group Corp. was confirmed by theater employees throughout China, and has led to speculation that the Hollywood film could have run afoul of Chinese censors despite weeks of promotion in the country.
Calls to the importer and to China's regulatory agency, the State Administration of Radio Film and Television, were unanswered. The China office of Sony Pictures, which released the film, refused to comment.
"Django Unchained" reportedly cut some violent scenes and had already been cleared by China's rigorous censors, who generally remove violence, sex and politically edgy content. With such an exacting system, suspension on a film's premiere date is unusual.
Tian Zaixing, general manager of the Beichen Fortune Center movie theater in the southern city of Kunming, said he could not recall any other imported film being halted on the opening day. The order from China Film Group came in a phone call around 10 a.m., he said.
"We were excited about the film yesterday," he said. "We had had high expectations for this film's box office."
Tian said he had hoped the movie would bring about one-tenth of the monthly box office, or about 150,000 yuan ($24,000), to his six-screen theater in April. Now, he must scramble to fill newly opened slots for screening.
"This means we might not be able to meet our box-office goal for the year," Tian said.
The cited technical reason might only be a ruse, said Tian, who was unable to provide an alternative explanation.
He dismissed speculation that a nude scene was the offending culprit.
"The censors have sharper eyes than we do," Tian said. "Shouldn't they have already spotted it?" He added the scene was not lewd at all but powerful in making the audience sympathetic toward one character.
The film stars actors well known to the Chinese audience: Leonardo DiCaprio as a plantation owner and Jamie Foxx as a freed slave who trains to become a bounty hunter and demands his wife's freedom.
It made more than $160 million at the North American box office and has proved successful overseas as well. China has risen to the second-biggest movie market with sales of $2.7 billion last year, according to the Motion Picture Association of America.
A man who is on the official promotional team for the film but refused to give his name because of the perceived sensibility of the issue said there had been no prior warning about the suspension and that the film's midnight premiere was unaffected.
Photographer Xue Yutao said he was about one minute into the movie at a Beijing theater Thursday morning when a couple of theater employees walked in and told the audience that the screening would be postponed. The announcer did not give a reason or say when the movie would be re-shown, Xue said.
"It was so sudden. I was very shocked," Xue said. "How could this be possible? Something like this has never happened before."
Xue said he resorted to a pirated copy of the film and did not see anything that would have offended Chinese censors.
"I'm not a noble man," the photographer said of his viewing of pirated movies. "I would still prefer to see it in the theater."

Yes, but will it take at least two hours to read it?
