December 21, 2012
Christmas is just three days away, and coming with the holiday will be the theatrical releases of the musical Les Miserables and Quentin Tarantino's western Django Unchained. Both will likely be in serious contention for Best Picture, but first we'll have to see if they get nominated on January 10th. The Academy has been proven to love musicals and Quentin Tarantino, so they both have a good chance (plus Samuel L. Jackson and Anne Hathaway just fought over whose movie was actually more sad). Now the final trailers for each film, wrangling the last few audience members who aren't convinced to see them, have arrived. Watch!
Here's the final trailer for Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained from Yahoo:
Django Unchained is written and directed by Quentin Tarantino, who last brought us Inglourious Basterds. In the film, the Django (Jamie Foxx) is a freed slave, who under the tutelage of a German bounty hunter (Christoph Waltz) becomes a bounty hunter himself, and together they track down his slave wife (Kerry Washington) and liberate her from the evil plantation owner (Leonardo DiCaprio). The cast includes Jonah Hill, Amber Tamblyn, Dennis Christopher, Walton Goggins, M.C. Gainey, Don Johnson, Anthony LaPaglia, Zoe Bell, James Russo, James Remar, Todd Allen and Franco Nero. The Weinstein Company has the film scheduled for wide release starting on December 25th, Christmas Day, the end of this year. Can you dig?
And here is the final trailer for Tom Hooper's Les Miserables from Apple:
Tom Hooper (The King's Speech) is directing Les Miserables, an adaptation of the successful stage musical based on Victor Hugo's classic novel set in 19th-century France, in which a paroled prisoner named Jean Valjean (Hugh Jackman) seeks his redemption. Alain Boublil adapted his own work with Claude-Michel Schonberg, who also wrote the stage musical, Herbert Kretzmer and William Nicholson. The film also stars Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, Helena Bonham Carter, Sacha Baron Cohen and Eddie Redmayne and will hit theaters everywhere on December 25th, Christmas Day. Bring your whole family!
