DJANGO UNCHAINED (4/16) Full Press Release

Anchor Bay Entertainment and The Weinstein Company announced today the Blu-ray™ Combo Pack with UltraViolet and DVD release of the critically acclaimed film

DJANGO UNCHAINED
from writer and director Academy Award®-winner Quentin Tarantino (Inglorious Basterds, Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill Vol. I and Kill Bill Vol. 2).[/b]



Set in the South two years before the Civil War, DJANGO UNCHAINED stars 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. Success leads Schultz to free Django, though the two men choose not to go their separate ways. Instead, Schultz seeks out the South’s most wanted criminals with Django by his side. Honing vital hunting skills, Django remains focused on one goal: finding and rescuing Broomhilda (Kerry Washington), the wife he lost to the slave trade long ago. Django and Schultz’s search ultimately leads them to Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio), the proprietor of Candyland, an infamous plantation. Exploring the compound under false pretenses, Django and Schultz arouse the suspicion of Stephen (Samuel L. Jackson), Candie’s trusted house slave. Their moves are marked, and a treacherous organization closes in on them. If Django and Schultz are to escape with Broomhilda, they must choose between independence and solidarity, between sacrifice and survival.

DJANGO UNCHAINED recently won 2 Academy Awards® for Best Writing for an Original Screenplay for Quentin Tarantino and Best Actor in a Supporting Role for Christoph Waltz. The film was nominated for a total of 5 Academy Awards® including Best Picture, Best Cinematography and Best Sound Editing. Additionally, DJANGO UNCHAINED won 2 Golden Globe awards for Best Screenplay for Quentin Tarantino and Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role for Christoph Waltz. The film was nominated for a total of 5 Golden Globe Awards including Best Motion Picture – Drama, Quentin Tarantino for Best Director and Leonardo DiCaprio for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role.

DJANGO UNCHAINED heads to retail on April 16, 2013 for an SRP of $39.99 for the Blu-ray™ Combo Pack with UltraViolet and $29.98 for the DVD.

The DJANGO UNCHAINED Blu-ray™ Combo Pack with UltraViolet and exclusive special features.

So far there is no steelbook exclusive for Django Unchained as far as im concered. Just because FutureShop gets it doesnt necessarily mean that BestBuy will get it. A good example is the Remake of 'Total Recall'. FutureShop that a steelbook and WALMART got the steelbook instead even though [if my memory serves correct] Best Buy owns FutureShop. BestBuy.ca has no listing if a steelbook

The Bluray that appears on Bby is special.. If you PREOREDER the Bluray. It will say this as the as the summery:

Django Unchained - 2 Pack - Blu-ray Disc Rating: R

my guess is; That this IS NOT A STEELBOOK but 'Django Unchained Bluray' packaged with the original 1966 ' Django' .
That's just my guess. I'll do more research on this as im excited to see what this product is...
Of course the "2 pack" could be a typo and this product could be the much talked about [in forums] Steelbook.

There was that CINEMA NOW thing for 'Django Unchained' that I saw.....

I saw next weeks ad for Best Buy and in it they have a spot saying that they start taking pre orders for Django on March 12, and that they will have exclusive packaging and exclusive bonus content... whenever you know what that packaging is, please let us know (not that I had to ask, cuz you are always on top of it, but seeing the ad piqued my interest, as I am a sucker for collectable packaging!)

Thanks dude

I enjoyed the film, but not nearly as much as Basterds...I'll add it to my collection though once I can grab it for under $10 on Blu-Ray.

Well, The official Bluray cover has Django wearing sunglasses. In the theatrical poster.. Django was not wearing glasses. Anchor Bay added sunglasses for the bluray release. Whatever image is on the BBY PREORDER card is most likely the "BBY cover image". I also believe that the image that I posted above of the preorder maybe the Cover for BBY. I wont know until Tuesday when i go into Best Buy to get the preorder.

BTW: Here is the 2nd trade ad

[more info]

Select footage accompanying the home entertainment release of double Oscar winner Django Unchained will be available
March 12 to consumers who pre-order the film’s Blu-ray Combo Pack in Best Buy stores or at www.Bestbuy.com/DJU.

The Weinstein Co. movie, which won Best Supporting Actor (Christoph Walz) and Best Original Screenplay (director Quentin
Tarantino), is available digitally April 2 at CinemaNow. The BD Combo Pack streets April 16.

CinemaNow is among a collection of digital delivery channels such as Apple iTunes, Sony PlayStation, Walmart’s Vudu.com,
Fox’s Digital HD, Warner’s Flixster.com and Microsoft Xbox Live, among others, offering access to new and
catalog releases (some with UltraViolet functionality) on or before street date.

Best Buy is upping CinemaNow’s profile as it downsizes shelf-space in stores for packaged media,
notably DVD releases. CEO Hubert Joly announced the change in strategy during the consumer
electronics retailer’s most recent fiscal call with analysts.

Best Buy is in the midst of internal restructuring aimed at increasing its ecommerce presence
while maintaining same-store sales at smaller footprint retail locations.

BTW I found something VERY ODD on Blu-ray.com:

Django Unchained Gift Set Blu-ray [USA]
SteelBook / Blu-ray + CD
Sony Pictures | 2012 | May 22, 2013 (2 Months)

As u can see from the BOLD. Blu-ray.com is saying that Sony will release a gift Set of the film in the states.
This is odd because Sony has OVERSEAS home video distribution and NOT US distribution..
I think they ment to say "FRANCE"..LOL

[update]
The "Gift Set" IS FOR Sweden ! and not the USA
info was found/confirmed HERE

SKYNET: BestBuy.ca shows postcards with their version....

The item in question was found on Best Buy CANADA. This item could just be for Canadians [im not sure].

Bestbuy.com (thats USA) still has not release ANY new info besides the small thumbnail that I posted in a previous thread.

[Note/update]: IF the cover posted below IS infact the Best Buy exclusive [for the USA]..than that mean that the bluray
will come in a "picture frame type" slip-sleeve that is made to look like metal.

The postcards are most likely for just CANADA. As for BestBuy (USA)..
when u preorder the film you do get excess to special content via Cinemanow.
I mentioned it here: http://www.joblo.com/forums/showpost...80&postcount=6

I just found this image in the forums section of Bestbuy.com.

Theys sound almost sound the same

ya i went with the Target STeelbook.. As i simply can not turn down a steel book! This one is particularly nice, just the artwork and feel of it.

I actually woke up early so I could get this exclusive, went to the store at 8am when they opened, there were 4 of us already there, they couldnt find the books, so they took our names n numbers and 3 of the dudes left while I stuck around and asked if the lady would call the other target in my area and see if they had any of the books, as she was on the phone someone radio'd her from the back and said he had found them!

Of course, I was in a Target 2 hours ago, and they still had a ton of these Steelbooks... guess I didnt have to wake up early!
