As already noted, the marketing machine has officially begun for Quentin Tarantino's hgihly-anticipated slavery revenge tale Django Unchained - a film that I've already predicted will be another one of those heavily polarizing films when it's eventually released on X-mas day this year and after.

Indeed it is a good time to be in the CodeBlack Entertainment business as AMCi (AMC's relatively new independent film release initiative) confirmed over the weekend that the black-owned and operated film production/distribution company run by Jeff Clanagan, holds the top two highest grossing films in AMCi program history: 1) Laugh At My Pain, which shocked the world when it was released last fall, making an impressive $7 million (grossing around 10 times its budget, making it one of the most profitable films of 2011); and 2) Woman Thou Art Loosed! On The 7th Day, which opened in limited release this weekend, on 102 screens in the USA, grossing just about $650,000; and, by the way, held the highest per screen average of all films in commercial theatrical release this past weekend (yes, even higher than The Hunger Games, The Cabin In The Woods, and other top-grossing studio films).
