THR reveals that the Lucca Movie event in Italy will unveil an eight-minute extended trailer for the movie this Friday. Whether or not this will be all-new footage, or the same sizzle reel The Weinstein Company dropped at the Cannes Film Festival this spring (read our report here) is anyone's guess. Frankly, we would be surprised if it's the latter. And as for that much-talked-about potential premiere at the Rome Film Festival which kicks off in just over a week?
Well, the latest news is that 'Django' will screen after the festival, though now reports say that the legendary Franco Nero -- star of the original "Django" -- will make some kind of announcement during the fest about the premiere. If it happens. Though at this rate, it seems like a lot of hopeful optimism rather than anything concrete. So, in short, we'll see.
And for everyone else, "Django Unchained" gets unboxed on Christmas Day.
