While we can debate what the best movie of December is, there is no arguing that Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" is the bloodiest. Using more ketchup packets than a weekend at the world's busiest McDonalds, the red stuff explodes all over this picture. And these vicious new pictures from the film graphically put that on display.

"Django Unchained” is an insane mess in several ways, showing one of our great filmmakers unfocused and chaotic, attempting racial and political insight while also satiating his own cinephilia. This is the most flat-out entertaining film of 2012. "Django Unchained" might be called a love story or a comedy, but it’s not particularly funny or moving and it's terribly self-indulgent.

Had things gone the way they were supposed to, Leonardo DiCaprio would be pulling double duty this December, starring not only in Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained," but also in Baz Luhrmann's "The Great Gatsby." But alas, additional shooting pushed the movie back from a previously scheduled Christmas Day release to a date next spring. So until then, we'll just have to look at gorgeous people being gorgeous.

Perhaps the only thing that's been more divisive than 48fps this December is the reaction to Quentin Tarantino's highly anticipated spaghetti western slavery flick, "Django Unchained." It certainly divided the staff here enough that we ran three reviews taking on the movie, from praise to pointed criticism. But the fact of the matter is, the majority of the public still has to wait to weigh in with their verdict, and The Weinstein Company still has to sell a difficult picture for any time of year, particularly the holiday season.

Films by Quentin Tarantino aren't exactly Halley's Comet, but for a while there, they didn't come as often as some filmgoers would have liked. And while the filmmaker seems to be back at his pace of delivering a film every two or three years, the arrival of a new Tarantino picture generally makes the cinema world sit up and take notice. And as always, opinions on his films vary wildly from film to film, from cinephile to cinephile.

Awards season continues on apace, and if things keep on the way things have been going this week, Kathryn Bigelow may need to enlarge her trophy cabinet. Her follow-up to the awards-laden "The Hurt Locker," Bin Laden-hunt picture "Zero Dark Thirty" hasn't even opened in theaters yet, but it already won the Best Film (along with Director and Cinematography) prize from the New York Film Critics' Circle on Monday, and now the National Board of Review (the somewhat nebulous organization who traditionally kicked off awards season, before the NYFCC moved their dates up last year) have followed suit.

It has been a good week for those eagerly anticipating Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" as a new trailer and soundtrack details dropped for the film (check out our breakdown of what movies those tracks were sourced from). But that's not all, Tarantino himself came out of the editing bay for THR's directors' roundtable chat and dropped all kinds of nuggets, including his assertion that "Death Proof" is his worst film and that even he doesn't want to see a three-hour "Django Unchained." And with the film set to unspool for critics on the weekend, another little treat has landed online.

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.
