Handling of Django Unchained Trailer Leak Ticks Off Fandango’s Erik Davis

Although movies.com managing editor and Fandango contributing editor Erik Davis tweeted that he was not surprised the Django Unchained trailer was leaked ahead of an exclusive debut scheduled tonight for his two sites, he was less than thrilled with the way Indiewire blog The Playlist handled the matter.

Indiewire quickly tweeted Davis that nothing had been posted at the main website end. The Playlist’s Kevin Jagernauth meanwhile seemed to feel there was no reason to apologize:

The Weinstein Co. was scrambling today to get all traces of this on-the-QT trailer peak removed. To paraphrase the Tarantino character portrayed previously by Django star Christoph Waltz – That’s a no-no!
