In recent weeks, rumors were flying that Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained was sporting a running time of over three hours and that the editing process was still ongoing, despite the fact that the movie will be hitting theaters in less than a month. Well now the Exhibitor Relations Twitter account tweeted out the official runtime, which should calm some fears about the film. Check it out below.
DJANGO UNCHAINED's official running time: 2hrs 45mins 11secs. Merry Christmas QT fans.— Exhibitor Relations (@ERCboxoffice) December 1, 2012
At just a bit under three hours, Django Unchained is Tarantino’s longest film. We’re all for long epics, but anything over three hours might have been on the excessive side, so we're glad to see something manageable here. We’re just hoping that Tarantino didn’t cut out too much, but at this point the dude knows what he's doing.
Django Unchained will hit theaters on Christmas Day.
