"Django Unchained" has become director Quentin Tarantino's highest grossing film to date within the domestic market, having accumulated nearly $130 million sinces its Christmas day release. Tarantino's second-highest grossing film is 2009's "Inglourious Basterds," with $120.5 million. "Basterds" was nominted for eight Oscars, including Best Picture, Director, Screenplay, Cinematography and Editing. It won Best Supporting Actor for Christoph Waltz's unforgettable turn as Col. Hans Landa. At this year's Oscars "Django" will be competing for five Oscars: Best Picture, Screenplay, Cinematography, Sound Editing and Supporting Actor--again for Waltz.

We also appreciate working with Amy Pascal, Michael Lynton, and the incredible Sony team on this project. They have been great partners internationally."
