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.

There's probably a really clever joke to be made about going from a freed slave in "Django Unchained" to becoming President in "White House Down" but we're tired and we'll let you figure out that one for yourselves. But yes, Jamie Foxx is going to become the leader of the free world, if everything goes according to plan.

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.

Update: Several sources, including the L.A. Times, Variety and Deadline are now calling this a fait accompli. It looks like all that needs to happen is some signing of contracts.

Leonardo DiCaprio Locked In?Arguably the most sought-after job vacancy in Hollywood right now is the titular slave-turned-bounty-hunter in Quentin Tarantino's neo-Western "Django Unchained." And while we might have fatigue over the same old lily-white shortlist of 18-35 year old men that come up for every superhero gig or tentpole actioner, this has been a little more refreshing, if only for the fact that it's allowed the African-American acting community to go through the rumor mill in a way that, shamefully, they generally don't get to for big projects.

Jamie Foxx & Chris Tucker Also In The Running For The LeadWhile Deadline is trumping exclusive, they were (kind of) beat to the story a week ago so let's rewind a bit. Last week, former Creative Screenwriting magazine Senior Editor Jeff Goldsmith tweeted, “Casting Rumor: Leonardo DiCaprio WILL play villain Calvin Candie in [Quentin] Tarantino‘s “Django Unchained”! QT wanted him for I.B. & now has him!” Well, it looks like it's just a matter of working out deal points right now.
