i still didnt understand, it could have still played in december, django unchained is a pretty cool movie but it probably has a diffrent target market of viewers like hobbit and les miserables. so i dont know if avoiding the competition would do this film a benefit. christmas season is the season in which eventual oscar nominated movies are produced and i heard rumors that this movie is great.
