Django Unchained Blog is Now on Pinterest

Check out the new Django Unchained Blog Pinterest account. Not only will you find images and posters from our website, but we’ve also got some extras like a board full of Quentin Tarantino-inspired art. Now I’m admittedly a Pinterest noob and still learning the ropes, so feel free to leave me some Pinterest tips in the comments. Or at least tell me which film-related boards I should check out.

If you’re not on Pinterest, but are interested in an invite, then send me an email. I’ll happily share my Pinterest invites with you.

P.S. If Pinterest isn’t your thing, then we’ve still got a Twitter feed you can follow, too.

Samuel L. Jackson Reflects on His Life, Career, and Politics

samuel l. jackson django unchained

The Telegraph recently published a long article about Samuel L. Jackson. It’s an interesting read that’s mostly about his life rather than his upcoming projects. Throughout the article, Jackson speaks candidly on subjects such as his upbringing, past drug abuse, and politics. I recommend reading it if you want to learn more about the man; he has certainly lived an interesting life.

The article was light on the usual upcoming project plugs, but Jackson did offer a few quick words about Django Unchained:

I ask Jackson if it is emotional playing a slave. “It’s an eerie sort of thing. When I went to the set for the first time we pulled up to this huge cotton field and there were extras picking cotton and white guys sitting on horses. It was such a stark picture.” He won’t go into details about the plot but it’s reportedly violent and shocking. “Hopefully people will see past [that] and understand they’re watching a movie about heroism and redemption.” How, I wonder, will Jackson’s friend Spike Lee view the movie? The director has criticised white film-makers in the past for interpreting the black experience. “I’m sure he’ll have some outcry,” he laughs.

UPDATE:  Just found another excellent Samuel L. Jackson article that was published yesterday in the New York Times. Worth reading if you’re a fan.

Django Unchained First Look: Two Official Movie Stills

Entertainment Weekly just published these two exclusive Django Unchained first look pictures. In addition to the pictures, they included a few choice quotes from Jamie Foxx, who describes his character as “Richard Roundtree meets Clint Eastwood”:

“There’s a beautiful way [Tarantino] found for the characters to talk to each other. It’s mind-blowing. You’ve never heard it this way,” the actor says. “You’ve seen movies deal with slavery — or westerns that never dealt with slavery — do it the safe way. This way is like…wow.”

Quick piece of trivia: The set used in the above picture with Waltz and Foxx is the same set where Deadwood used to be filmed.
