Django Unchained becomes Quentin Tarantino's highest grossing film

The Weinstein Company is pretty proud of Quentin Tarantino’s latest effort, Django Unchained. Aside from the two Golden Globe wins for Best Supporting Actor (Christoph Waltz) and Best Screenplay (Quentin Tarantino), and along with the five Oscar nominations the film received (including Best Picture), Django Unchained has officially become Tarantino’s highest grossing film to date (domestically). Have a look at The Weinstein Company’s official release after the jump.

New York, NY – January 17, 2013 – The Weinstein Company (TWC) is thrilled to announce that DJANGO UNCHAINED has just become Quentin Tarantino’s highest-grossing film to date in the domestic marketplace, with a cumulative gross nearing $130 Million. The movie, starring Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kerry Washington, and Samuel L. Jackson, was released wide on Christmas Day 2012. Tarantino’s previous record was set by INGLORIOUS BASTERDS which grossed over $120.5 Million in the U.S.

Fresh off this weekend’s two Golden Globe® wins for Best Supporting Actor (Christoph Waltz) and Best Screenplay (Quentin Tarantino), and celebrating the movie’s five Oscar® nominations including Best Picture, DJANGO UNCHAINED is continuing to gather steam in the awards race, and continues to receive critical and popular acclaim. Some of the many supporters include the Reverend Jesse L. Jackson, who released this statement, “ [DJANGO UNCHAINED] captures the cultural, physical and psychological pain heaped upon the lives of men and women of African descent-expressing in dramatic terms the existential nightmare endured by so many for so long. By this measure, the scar of violence, exploitation and subrogation made evident—and the focus of this film—is not just a picture of random violence, but portrays America at its lowest moment as a nation. The violence that we see portrayed in this drama might well renew our focus on the 256 years of racial violence that continues to be an indelible chapter in the history that is America.”

“Bob and I have had the most extraordinary filmmaker relationship with Quentin Tarantino and we are proud to be here for this incredible milestone. We also appreciate working with Amy Pascal, Michael Lynton, and the incredible Sony team on this project. They have been great partners internationally,” said Harvey Weinstein, Co-Chairman of The Weinstein Company.

What's your favorite Tarantino movie ?

I'm actually working my way through QT's filmography right now! I love Inglourious Basterds, I saw Django with a friend a few days ago, and I watched Reservoir Dogs today. Which one should I watch next, ONTD?
twenty21one 17th-Jan-2013 07:47 pm (UTC)
Kill Bill 1!

I really like Jackie Brown, but I would just go with release year.
lovelyeli 17th-Jan-2013 07:48 pm (UTC)
Get on that Kill Bill 1&2
queenbathory 17th-Jan-2013 07:49 pm (UTC)
guuuuuurl (apologies if you are a guy) If you do not watch Pulp Fiction right away I will judge the fuck out of you it's an absolute must when dealing with Tarantino!!!
grotesque_xxx 17th-Jan-2013 07:51 pm (UTC)
Pulp Fiction or Kill Bill
spankmypirate 17th-Jan-2013 07:53 pm (UTC)
Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill, in that order!!!
bees_beads 17th-Jan-2013 08:18 pm (UTC)
Pulp Fiction, for sure - there's a reason why it's basically the go-to Tarantino movie. After that watch Kill Bill 1 and 2.
wheresandrae 17th-Jan-2013 08:27 pm (UTC)
Jackie Brown is his best IMO
jungsoo 17th-Jan-2013 08:40 pm (UTC)
Pulp fiction and jackie brown. Kill Bill is boring tbh.
ladywilde80 17th-Jan-2013 09:15 pm (UTC)
Kill Bill 1 and 2 - best to watch them together. They're my personal favorites but I'm also the biggest Uma Thurman stan ever, soooo my opinion is pretty biased.
grotesque_xxx 17th-Jan-2013 07:46 pm (UTC)

Django , IB , KB 1 and PF

Django was good, but not great. Easily my least favorite. Jackie Brown is definitely my favorite movie of his.
twenty21one 17th-Jan-2013 07:46 pm (UTC)
Pulp Fiction then Kill Bill 1
grotesque_xxx 17th-Jan-2013 07:52 pm (UTC)
yes <3
ladywilde80 17th-Jan-2013 10:09 pm (UTC)
oh yes
la_petite_singe 17th-Jan-2013 07:48 pm (UTC)
Hmmm...I really don't know what my fave is. I love Kill Bill, esp. part 2, but there's not a single scene in Inglourious Basterds that I don't like (unlike KB, which has a few that go on too long, imo). Same with Pulp Fiction. Hard to say. But it might be IB.
briknowsbest 17th-Jan-2013 07:49 pm (UTC)
King Leo, his power tbh

spankmypirate 17th-Jan-2013 07:51 pm (UTC)
My faves are probably Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs and Kill Bill

But I adored both Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained.
zimraphel 17th-Jan-2013 07:54 pm (UTC)
Kill Bill for sure. I only recently began to understand how unique it is in its portrayal of strong female leads. Plus, the cinematography, music, story... I love everything about it, both 1&2 equally.
ladywilde80 17th-Jan-2013 10:10 pm (UTC)
Yep - its QT's love letter to both every film genre he's ever loved and Uma Thurman.

It's glorious.

Inglourious Basterds because it brought Christoph Waltz into my life.

grotesque_xxx 17th-Jan-2013 08:05 pm (UTC)

[albo this movie brought Fassbender ;p ]

Same. I discovered so many fantastic foreign actors through Inglourious Basterds.
