Perhaps aware that a spaghetti western -- even if directed by Quentin Tarantino, who is a brand name director now -- centered around the subject of slavery might be a tricky sell, The Weinstein Company are getting the marketing campaign out early for the film that won't be arriving until Christmas. But that means even for all the advertising, the footage for now will remain the same until the movie is closer to completion (or until Comic-Con where Tarantino will be making an appearance).

While it may seem like a no-brainer on paper, The Weinstein Company are rolling the dice a bit on "Django Unchained," the new film by Quentin Tarantino. A spaghetti western, tackling a controversial subject that isn't exactly one that's guaranteed to light up the box office, and that will be released right at the height of the Christmas season....we guess you either go big, or go home. And the new international trailer for the film serves up another look at the movie that, if nothing else, promises to be nothing like the competition when it hits theaters.

The biggest story of the last week, by a mile, was the debut of the first trailer for Quentin Tarantino's sure-to-be-controversial Western "Django Unchained." Starring Jamie Foxx as the title character, a slave out to rescue his wife Broomhilda (Kerry Washington), with Christoph Waltz as his companion, Dr. King Schultz and Leonardo DiCaprio as one of the villains, Calvin Candie, it was one of the most anticipated films of the year before hand, but the excellent teaser clip has certainly raised expectations even further.

Looks like the rumors are true. Just over a week ago word began to surface that the first trailer for Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" would be playing in front of "Prometheus," and with the trailer now set to drop in full online tomorrow, it looks like that will be the case. But you don't have to until Wednesday or this weekend to get a glimpse of the footage, as ET has a preview of what you can expect.

Even though it's not coming out until Christmas, and is still shooting, The Weinstein Company are getting the ball rolling very early on Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained." And it's easy to see why. While the director may be a name brand at this point, his latest, a slavery-centered spaghetti western, could be his most controversial yet. However, with early footage screened at the Cannes Film Festival that delivered everything fans now expect from the director, and with rumors of a teaser trailer unspooling in front of "Prometheus," buzz is building for the film and it looks like the audiences will soon get a taste of what Tarantino is brewing.

Capping off The Weinstein Company press presentation this evening was what was arguably the longest look of the trio of films they unveiled, Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained." And for better or worse, it's pure Tarantino through and through. Longtime fans of the director are going to be thrilled, and for anyone hoping he's changed his visual approach, or swapped out his longstanding influences for something different, they might be advised to skip this one entirely, even though it will be their loss.

We already know that Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" is going to be something special. Centering on slavery and vengeance, but delivering through the conventions of a spaghetti western in a way that only Tarantino knows how, there are few films this year taking as big a risk. And if these first official images from the film indicate anything, it's that the pay off could be something truly memorable.

Well, it was bound to happen sooner or later. With filming underway on Quentin Tarantino's slavery/spaghetti wester/vengeance tale "Django Unchained" the production has been keeping everything surrounding the film tightly under wraps, with little leaking out. Until now.

Memo to the Academy: Next year, you might want to get the writing staff of "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" to write jokes for the show, because this nine-minute bit is funnier than anything that happened at the Oscars last night.

Although Christoph Waltz has been working as an actor since the early 1980’s, he was relatively unknown to American audiences before his Academy Award-winning performance as Hans Landa in Quentin Tarantino’s “Inglorious Basterds.” Waltz’s elevated status catapulted him into a string of Hollywood releases in 2011 that including “The Green Hornet,” “Water for Elephants” and “The Three Musketeers.” But it is Waltz’s smallest role, as Alan Cowan in Roman Polanski’s “Carnage,” for which the actor is drawing his greatest acclaim since ‘Basterds.’
