QUENTIN IS COMING TO OZ!
Sony Pictures Releasing is thrilled to announce that Academy Award®-winner Quentin Tarantino will visit Sydney next month to attend the Premiere of his critically acclaimed new film Django Unchained. The Premiere will be held on the evening of Monday, January 21st at the State Theatre, Sydney.
Stephen Basil-Jones, EVP of Sony Pictures Australia says, “Quentin loves Australia and we’re so pleased he’s making the trip, especially as he’ll be heading our way in the middle of the U.S. Awards season where Django is featuring heavily. The film is extraordinary and we’re honoured to have him present it in Sydney.”
Written and directed by Quentin Tarantino, Django Unchained is set in the South two years before the Civil War. Academy Award®-winner Jamie Foxx as Django, a slave whose brutal history with his former owners lands him face-to-face with German-born bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz (Academy Award®-winner Christoph Waltz). Schultz is on the trail of the murderous Brittle brothers, and only Django can lead him to his bounty. The unorthodox Schultz acquires Django with a promise to free him upon the capture of the Brittles – dead or alive.
With an all star cast including Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Leonard DiCaprio, Kerry Washington, Samuel L. Jackson, John Jarratt, Don Johnson, Walton Goggins and Jonah Hill, Django Unchained will release in Australian cinemas on January 24, 2013.
