Last night (Jan 10th) Cut The Cap slicked back the hair, grab their leading lady and braved the cold to walk the white carpet at the Django Unchained Premiere at the Empire Leicester Square.
Held back by barriers, crowds of fans jostled to catch a glimpse of the stars of the hotly anticipated Tarantino western, released last year in the United States to critical acclaim.
One of the biggest roars was reserved for cult figure Tarantino himself, who arrived on the white carpet about 6.30pm amid screaming fans and loud music.
Once inside the cinema Tarantino came to life and introduced the cast to the excited audience… its hard to put into words to vibe as he was doing this but hopefully this video will help show what a special moment it was!

For those of you living under a rock Django Unchained is the American western film written and directed by Quentin Tarantino. The film stars a stella cast of Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kerry Washington, and Samuel L. Jackson.
Quentin Tarantino’s latest blood-fest is set in the antebellum era of the Deep South and Old West with the backdrop of slavery and the American Civil War. The film follows Jamie Foxx’s title character, Django, a freed slave who treks across America with a wandering German dentist and bounty hunter (Waltz) on a mission to rescue his wife (Washington) from a cruel and charismatic plantation owner (DiCaprio). Unsurprisingly and to Cut The Cap’s delight the to two embarking on a killing spree typical of the Pulp Fiction director…
Just before the premiere news was released that the Austrian actor Christoph Waltz had received another Oscar nomination to add to his previously nod for his role as Col Hans Landa in Tarantino film Inglourious Basterds.
In fact since its release over the pond at the end of last year the film received acclaim from critics. Django Unchained went on to be nominated for five Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor (Christoph Waltz) and Best Original Screenplay (Quentin Tarantino) and it was clear to see everyone involved with the film welcomed the Oscar buzz.
If you were in a quandary as to whether to see the film or not the main man of the night, Mr Quentin Tarantino, was quoted as saying it’s a film for people who like cowboy movies – so if that puts a tick in your box saddle up and get the the cinema on January 18th!
