django unchained premiere canceled sandy hook elementary tragedy quentin tarantino jamie foxx leonardo dicaprio

In the wake of such an unthinkable national tragedy, some of us find ourselves wondering what precisely we can do to help!

Director Quentin Tarantino and producer Harvey Weinstein may be thousands of miles away from the victims and their families, but they feel the least they can do is cancel Tuesday's premiere of their violent film Django Unchained.

The much-anticipated Jamie Foxx and Leonardo DiCaprio flick will still open wide on Christmas Day, but they rightfully feel there's no need to celebrate the film's violence in an ultra-decadent fashion while so many families are still mourning the massacre of teachers and young children.

Tom Cruise's Jack Reacher and Billy Crystal's Parental Guidance also canceled premieres and modified their trailers out of respect for the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary shootings.

Hollywood is often a money-first town — it's nice to be reminded that even the biggest movie moguls are human beings too.

    Really? The least they can do? Because Tarantino's exact quote regarding the postponement was: “I just think there’s violence in the world. Tragedies happen,” he said on Saturday. “[Django] is a western. Give me a break.”

    They did the same thing with Batman, and the movie still made a lot of money… quietly. I think the massacre and the shootings this year have really put a damper on the year as a whole.
    .
    Tarantino is right. This is a violent world. The movies don't create the violent; they merely reflect it.

    Tarantinos latest bloody film is sure to resonate with his many fans and butt kissers. Simply just another irresponsible job of filmmaking by a guy whose main contribution to motion pictures was showing how "cool" it is to kill. A reflection of culture? Seems to me he was one of the first directors to really hammer this home. He has probably inspired hundreds of med induced psychos to be in the u.s.a.yet all the critics love him because he is a money making machine and idiots like Christopher Waltz actually believe ultra violent movies are not a part of this country's obsession with violence? Very sad how people sell their souls for the almighty buck

    Re: Common sense – Violence has been entertainment for thousands of years. To each their own.
