As we begin a new week of examining of the possible pros and cons of this fall's award-contending pictures (following "Lincoln," "Flight," "Skyfall" and "Wreck-It Ralph"), it seems like the next natural choice is to go with "Django Unchained," which is sure to be one of the most controversial movies of the season.

A new trailer for the "Quentin Tarantino XX" Blu-ray box set has debuted, and while it might look great on the outside, promising 5 hours of bonus features and more, what becomes clear is that this package is a bit of a missed opportunity with some odd choices of what to include.

Wrapping earlier this summer, after a reported 130 day shoot, Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" went through quite a few cast changes as it rolled in front of cameras. Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Kevin Costner, Sacha Baron Cohen, Kurt Russell and Anthony LaPaglia all exited the picture at various points, and while replacements were found, it seems Tarantino had the brainstorm to put himself in the movie too.

As "Django Unchained" made its way in front of cameras, Quentin Tarantino saw both the cast and script for his upcoming slavery/western/vengeance pic change as production moved along. Joseph Gordon-Levitt had to bail on his small role in the film, Kevin Costner couldn't commit to his role either, Sacha Baron Cohen had to bow out, and Kurt Russell also exited the picture (and while Jonah Hill did initially turn down the movie due to scheduling, he was able to join later on, albeit in a different role). And it looks like yet another actor left the project over timing.

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.

Devotees at San Diego Comic-Con 2012 were in for a rude awakening on Saturday morning. Despite fans camping out at 7 a.m. for an 11:30 a.m. Hall H presentation for Quentin Tarantino's upcoming slavery-drama-cum-revenge-thriller "Django Unchained," the lines for the panel were unprecedented and several thousand fans who thought they were early, were left out of luck.

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.
