China meet Quentin.
"Django Unchained" will premiere in the People's Republic of China on April 11, Sony Pictures said Wednesday. The antebellum revenge thriller will be the first Quentin Tarantino movie ever to debut in China.
That means the Chinese are in for a whole lot of Blaxploitation and Spaghetti Western references along with a healthy dollop of the old ultra-violence. The film has grossed $402 million worldwide so far, $80 million more than Tarantino's next highest grossing film, "Inglourious Basterds." It also earned a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for star Christoph Waltz.
Sony Pictures has handled the international rollout of the hit film, which is a co-production between The Weinstein Company and Sony Pictures.
