  1. The movie is bad ass and in typical Tarantino style. The casting of the actors was perfect, Christopher Waltz, Leonardo Di Caprio, Jamie Foxx and Samuel L. Jackson. All of them have done a great job.

    Will missed the opportunity to be in such a great movie, let's see how After Earth will do this summer.

  2. Movie getting great reviews so far.


    Christmas Report: Great Debuts for 'Les Mis,' 'Django'

    December 26, 2012

    As expected, the 2012 Holiday movies audiences were really excited for came out on Christmas Day, not the weekend before: Les Miserables and Django Unchainedboth got off to fantastic starts on the holiday, whileParental Guidance had a very solid debut as well.

    Les Miserables led all movies with $18.1 million, which is the top opening day ever for a musical ahead of High School Musical 3: Senior Year ($17 million). It also ranks as the second-highest Christmas Day launch behindSherlock Holmes ($24.6 million), and fourth among all Christmas Day grosses behind Sherlock, Avatar ($23.1 million) and Meet the Fockers ($19.5 million). All three of those movies ultimately went on to earn over $200 million at the domestic box office. Les Miserables's audience skewed a bit female (56 percent), and gave it a great "A" CinemaScore.

    In second place, Django Unchained debuted to just over $15 million. That's fifth all-time for Christmas Day (third among debuts), and is also writer-director Quentin Tarantino's highest start ever ahead of Inglourious Basterds ($14.4 million). This opening is particularly impressive considering the challenges of selling violent R-rated material around this time of year: for example, it took The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo four days to get past $15 million last year.

    With good word-of-mouth on Les Miserables and Django Unchained, and considering how well movies usually hold at this time of year, it's practically a foregone conclusion that both titles wind up with well over $100 million by the end of their runs.

    The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey had to settle for third place on Christmas Day with an estimated $11.3 million. Through 12 days, the first part of a prequel trilogy has netted $168.3 million.

    Billy Crystal-Bette Midler family comedy Parental Guidance wasn't nearly as strong as Les Mis or Django, but it still tallied a very nice $6.4 million on opening day. That's almost double what Fox's Gulliver's Travels made on Christmas Day two years ago; more importantly, it's only a bit off from Cheaper by the Dozen's $7.8 million Christmas opening in 2003. Parental Guidance's release is clearly modeled off Cheaper, and if it holds as well (which is possible, but highly unlikely) it will wind up with over $110 million.

  3. on another note after "lost and found" i think most of these pop rappers would be scared to diss will but lately i've been kinda hoping that one of them does so he could come back hungry again like on that album so that he'll be running off the set of his next movie to beat down sucka mcs, lol

    I don't think Will would react, because he is not a battle rapper (anymore). It took 5 years to say basically "I don't give a ****" to Eminem. :D

  4. I think it should be mix of old and new skool artists, otherwise its hard to sell some records. In general it is difficult now for rap artists.

    My choices:
    LL Cool J or Ice Cube
    Nas or Jay Z
    Lupe Fiasco
    Bruno Mars
    Rihannna or Janelle Monae

    Kanye West

    Probably Willow & Jaden will also have a track on the album, maybe Kyle too.

  5. Enemy of State was great and one of the reasons for this was the cast and director. Same with BB2. His last great movie was POH.

    I think Jamie is a great choice, because he is able to play dramatic roles (Ray, The Soloist, etc.) ...the other candidates like Will or Chris Tucker have a more comedic appeal. My favourite choices from the beginning were Will and Idris Elba, because they would have benefit the most from such a career changing role. I am pretty sure that Leo di Caprio's credibility as an actor will rise with playing an villain on this project.

    I don't know about Will's movie tastes...but QT makes in my opinion cinema master pieces. I guess i am not the only one on the planet according to imdb.com ratings. :-)

    # (9.00) - Pulp Fiction (1994)
    # (8.40) - Reservoir Dogs - Wilde Hunde (1992)
    # (8.40) - Inglourious Basterds (2009)
    # (8.20) - Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003)
    # (8.00) - Kill Bill: Vol. 2 (2004)
    # (7.60) - Jackie Brown (1997)

    In comparison to Wills movies with the highest ratings:
    # (7.80) - Pursuit of Happiness (2006)
    # (7.60) - Seven Pounds (2008)
    # (7.20) - Enemy of State (1998)
    # (7.10) - I Am Legend (2007)
    # (7.00) - I, Robot (2004)
    # (7.00) - Men in Black (1997)

  6. Congrats to Jaimee ... Lets see what comes after MIB3. I still want to know, what Will's reason for rejecting the project is? If its for family reasons, its ok. But some sources even mention that the reason is that the Weinstein company is creating an Scientology critical movie... If thats the real reason, it would be more than sad...i want definately a statement from Will or QT on this one.

  7. This is a bigger career mistake than Wild Wild West. This movie role could have been a turning point in his career...from movie star to serious actor. I wonder what Will's lame excuse will be to not take this project. Another question will be, what comes after MIB3? Is it the rumoured Wacholwski movie Hood? If that movie flops commercially and critically...the comeback will be even harder. Anyway, this decision is a huge disappointment...i am pretty sure Jaimee will do a great job and hope he gets his next oscar! :-)

  8. I saw this one coming...if this is true, this a bigger mistake than WWW. How can you blow up an life-time opportunity to work with QT + great cast Leo Di Caprio, Christopher Waltz + Samuel L. Jackson? Such a project can bring you to the next level and can be turning point in an actors career... Anyway Di Caprio's development as an actor is incredible, he is one of the best nowadays with Johnny Depp and Christian Bale. If Will does not want to play Django, i hope Idris Elba gets the role...he is mad talented. His performance as Stringer Bell in The Wire was amazing.

  9. Will is still shoting MIB3. As far I know Tarantino plans to shot Dijango in the fall this year. I think that's a solid reason for Will to quit this project. Jada is working on Hawthorne right now too. We all know Will is a family guy. He may just want to spend some quality time with the fam. He does have 3 kids at home you know...

    Aww come on, thats a lame excuse...I think QT is also aware of MIB3. Brad Pitt, Denzel Washington, Idris ELba, Johnny Depp etc. are also family guys, lets not act like he is the only one in hollywood with a family. His last movie came out in 2008, so he had 4 years of quality time with his family.

  10. Reading a lot of the comments about the movie indicates that people don't actually want Will for this part. I have seen a lot of love for Idris Elba for this role

    Die Hard QT fans, are against Will because they think he is not good enough as an actor and his image is too soft/commercial. But this has been said about Brad Pitt also. They prefer newcomers like C. Waltz than major stars like Brad Pitt or Will Smith. Actually this happens before every Will movie and especially after Ali he proved all critics to be wrong. Nonetheless Idris Elba is really talented and one of the rising and "new" afro-american stars.

  11. Come on guys, if he passes on it you dont know the reason why, u cant hate on him for it. It could be timing or they dont think hes right for the part, dont give up on him just bcoz of this project.

    Give me some solid reasons why he should pass on this project. I have read the script and i think its brilliant.

    - great homage to the spaghetti westerns

    - many N and F bombs

    - rasicm main subject

    - revenge flick

    - character development of django from innocent to bad ass

    - Christopher Waltz has more lines than Will and my impression was that he is the secret star of the movie (he outshined Brad Pitt on Inglorious Bastards)

    - Samuel L. Jackson as an house negro

    - the only bad thing i want to say is that broomhilda, the female lead...has not substance at all and has just sex/naked and exploited scenes in the plot, but which is typical for western flicks

    This is not the typical July4th or i want to win an oscar Will Smith movie...this could be Will's step as an actor in another league. As the content of the movie is controversial, this movie can be commercially risky ... but thats one more reason that Will should take it. He is the only one who can guarantee box office numbers. Its not that you get everyday the chance to work with one of the best directors like QT, i would be very disappointed if he rejects this one. He got the chance to turn something negative (WWW) to something positive. Lets be real...Will is a good actor, not great. Even Denzel as one of the best, did take controversial roles and delivered his best performances as an actor.

  12. Quentin Tarantino + Will Smith + Christopher Waltz = Dream Cast

    This could be Will's chance to step in another league with an bad ass role like Clint Eastwood in Dirrty Harry. Quentin Tarantino is the perfect director for such a project. Plus Christopher Waltz, he is one of the best actors nowadays...I hope he does not reject this one...If you look back, his best role as an actor was in Ali, the main reason for this was surely Michael Mann.
