The Weinstein Company, Quentin Tarantino and Loma Vista Recordings today announced the release of QUENTIN TARANTINO’S DJANGO UNCHAINED ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK. DJANGO UNCHAINED marks the first time that Academy Award®-winning and Grammy® Award nominated director Quentin Tarantino has collaborated with artists to create original music for use in the film and original motion picture soundtrack. The soundtrack will be in stores and at all digital retailers on Tuesday, December 18th. The film release of DJANGO UNCHAINED will be on December 25, 2012 by The Weinstein Company in the U.S. and by Sony Pictures internationally. Pre-orders for QUENTIN TARANTINO’S DJANGO UNCHAINED ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK are available starting today HERE.
QUENTIN TARANTINO’S DJANGO UNCHAINED ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK features new and exclusive original music and compositions from of the most prominent figures in film and music today including, Rick Ross’ “100 Black Coffins” produced by and featuring Jamie Foxx, John Legend’s soulful offering “Who Did That To You?,” “Ancora Qui” by Honorary Academy Award Winner Ennio Morricone and Elisa, and Anthony Hamilton and Elayna Boynton’s poignant duet “Freedom.” The complete tracklisting for QUENTIN TARANTINO’S DJANGO UNCHAINED ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK can be found below.
“I want to thank all the artists who contributed original songs (a first for me) to the picture. Most of these contributions came out of the artists’ own inspiration and their illustration of the film’s soul is invaluable,” said Quentin Tarantino. “In addition to the new original songs I am also using a lot of older recordings on the soundtrack – many of which came from my personal vinyl collection. Instead of having the record companies give me new digitally cleaned up versions of these recordings from the 60’s and 70’s, I wanted to use the vinyl I’ve been listening to for years – complete with all the pops and cracks. I even kept the sound of the needle being put down on the record. Basically because I wanted people’s experience to be the same as mine when they hear this soundtrack for the first time.”
“We’re thrilled to be working with Quentin on this release,” said Loma Vista Recording Company’s founder Tom Whalley. “His films have always reaffirmed the important relationship between cinema and music and it’s exciting to work together on a soundtrack featuring completely original material written specifically for the film.”
The official trailer for DJANGO UNCHAINED, featuring music from Rick Ross, premiered on the homepage of Yahoo! today.
Written and directed by Academy Award®-winner Quentin Tarantino, DJANGO UNCHAINED is produced by Stacey Sher, Reginald Hudlin and Pilar Savone. The executive producers are Harvey and Bob Weinstein, Michael Shamberg, Shannon McIntosh, and James Skotchdopole.

Horror Hotel Returns for Second Season
Horror and lodging have quite a history together. Dracula. Psycho. 1408. The Tower of Terror. Needless to say, come Halloween time, you think about showering while holding the curtain taut when you stay somewhere. Or you might do that at home anyway. Chocolate syrup can’t be any good for the septic system.
The filmmakers of the award-winning Horror Hotel know this association well and are thrilled to announce that they are heading into a second season. Filmed in Atlanta, Georgia, Horror Hotel is a web anthology series that hearkens back to the trailblazers of the format like The Twilight Zone, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, Tales from the Darkside and Night Gallery.
Read on for updates on the season in production and be sure to check out (or check in to!) TBB’s interview with producer Debbie Jo Hess. You can catch Horror Hotel on several streaming platforms, including Hulu, AT&T Uverse, xfinity, and MSN.
Turndown service offered along with clones, aliens, and brain-snatching.

“Musical Chairs” Returns to HBO all through April
Best Picture and Best Director winner at the Massachusetts Independent Film Festival, Susan Seidelman’s Musical Chairs will air through all of April on HBO and its multiplex channels HBO Latino and HBO Signature, and is also available for streaming on HBO GO.
Seidelman, best known for her new-wave masterpiece Desperately Seeking Susan, once again sets foot in New York bohemia for this romantic drama about star-crossed lovers who find each other through a shared love of competitive ballroom dancing.
From the website, “Musical Chairs is a romantic tale of two New Yorkers, Armando Ortiz from the Bronx and Mia Franklin from the Upper East Side, who come together through their love of ballroom dancing.
Mia and Armando meet at a midtown Manhattan dance studio where Mia is an instructor and Armando is a part-time handyman who exchanges his janitorial duties for dance lessons. Despite their differences, there is clearly a spark between them that is ignited one night when they find themselves alone practicing in the studio. But before their relationship has a chance to grow, a tragic accident changes Mia’s life forever. True to his nature, Armando dedicates himself to helping Mia overcome the everyday challenges that follow.”
The film stars newcomers Leah Pipes and E.J. Bonilla as Mia and Armando and features a tremendous supporting cast: Laverne Cox of Orange is the New Black and Mass IFF Best Supporting Actress nominee, Tony-award winner Priscilla Lopez, Auti Angel, Jaime Tirelli, Nelson Landrieu, Angelic Zambrana, and more.
