Trilogy! Hollywood loves everything in threes and this week seems to be no exception. Of course, there's the announcement today of the new "Star Wars" trilogy coming for your wallet starting in 2015, and just yesterday, Quentin Tarantino revealed his upcoming "Django Unchained" might be the middle part of trilogy sandwich starting with "Inglorious Basterds." Well, until we find out if that will actually happen or will be a continual question mark like "Kill Bill 3," some new pics from "Django Unchained" have dropped.

This writer is probably one of the few who didn't care for the latest domestic trailer for "Django Unchained" when it landed a week or so ago, but after watching this brand new international trailer, that opinion could very much be turning around.

The tale of Ken Jeong is a pretty awesome one. He was working as a doctor while honing his comedy chops at stand-up clubs, and eventually moved to L.A. and started pursuing a career in showbiz full time. He worked the comedy circuit, did guest stints on a bunch of shows, eventually fell in with the Apatow gang, and came to much bigger attention after his turn as the asshole doctor in "Knocked Up." From there came "The Hangover," then "Community" and the rest, as they say, is history. Now he's stepping up into bigger and better things.

An American thriller film by Roland Emmerich, the guy who directed super-sized blockbusters like "Independence Day, " "Godzilla" and "2012" and starring Channing Tatum, "White House Down" might just be the movie of summer 2013 if you're into loud spectacle. Tatum, who has arguably had the best 2012 of any male contemporary thanks to three over-$100 million dollar grossers ("The Vow," "21 Jump Street" and "Magic Mike") stars as a United States Secret Service agent who must rescue the President of the United States (Jamie Foxx) from a paramilitary group that has taken over the White House. Let's guess, he's new and unexperienced (first day on the job?), but somehow he "Die Hard"s it and against all odds and saves the day.

It has been seven years since writer Stephen Gaghan got behind the camera and delivered "Syriana," and while he has kicked around a variety of projects since, lined up various producing and writing gigs (including doing a polish on M. Night Shymalan's upcoming "After Earth"), there hasn't been much word on a directorial outing. But now comes news of a project bubbling forth, with two heavyweight names eyeing the lead roles.

Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" made its way to the Comic-Con faithful over the weekend, and by all accounts, including our own, it blew the lid off the place. The film has seen a number of casting changes and additions as it has rolled on its production, which started late last year. But one of the of the biggest What Would Have Been bits of casting involves the lead role itself. Over a year ago, it was revealed that Will Smith was in contention for part of Django. Indeed the actor himself confirmed this last month, saying, "I came really close, it was one of the most amazing screenplays I had ever ever seen. I was in the middle of 'Men In Black 3' and [Tarantino] was ready to go, and I just couldn't sit with him and get through the issues, so I didn't want to hold him up. That thing's going to be ridiculous. It is a genius screenplay." But according to Tarantino, it was Jamie Foxx he ultimately wanted.

While the films of Quentin Tarantino may not exactly be comic book movies, the world he has created over his highly decorated tenure at the top of the film game is so heavily steeped in popular culture that it seems a perfect fit for the writer/director to be debuting footage from his spaghetti western, “Django Unchained,” at Comic-Con. After all, pop culture guru Tarantino is a comic fan himself, having referenced characters from the pages now and again, such as in the somewhat awkward but totally Tarantino rewrites of “Crimson Tide” in which Denzel Washington stumbles through a monologue about the Silver Surfer. But I digress.

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).

Chris Rock, Jamie Foxx & Idris Elba Reportedly In The Mix For Paul Feig's Remake Of French Hit 'Intouchables'

A smash hit in its native France, an arthouse sensation on this side of the ocean, and nominated for 9 Cesar awards, it's not a shock that The Weinstein Company (who distributed the original stateside) are eager to remake "Intouchables" for what they hope is an awards season contender. "Bridesmaids" director Paul Feig and Colin Firth are already set to team up on the movie -- titled "Untouchable" en anglais -- about a wealthy quadriplegic who finds a new reason to live thanks to a plucky urban caretaker. That latter role is the one that landed Omar Sy a Best Actor Cesar over favored nominee Jean Dujardin for "The Artist." And now, a trio of actors are hoping they can duplicate that success in English.
