We have to admit, we toyed around with alternate headlines, and nearly went with: "Poster For 'Django' Is 'Unchained'!" But at any rate, here we are, and let the drooling begin as the Spanish poster for Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" has been unveiled with a pretty big and not too surprising nod to the classic western one sheets of yore, all with a little contemporary minimalist modern design sauce thrown in the mix.

The one sheet comes courtesy (and randomly) from Sony Spain's Twitter account (and good heads up by ScreenCrush). Anyway, you already known the story so we won't recount it here, but instead, we'll provide you with a bit of a casting update. Did you know "Justified" star Walton Goggins was in this? We didn't either and we either missed the announcement, or he was quietly added, like a handful of folks in the last few weeks. We had tipped Goggins in our casting piece way back when for the role of Mr. Stonesiper -- one of Calvin Candie's two slave wranglers -- but he got the other one, Billy Crash, instead. And he chatted with GQ about his experience on the film.

"This movie is radical. It's like a kid walking into a candy store, to use a trite, overused metaphor. I can't believe it. I just started work this week, and my very first day, I'm looking up, and there's Quentin. I'm in Quentin's world, in his imagination," Goggins enthused. "His cinematic acumen is unparalleled, and he's able to draw from all these resources, which are all the movies that have ever been made. He's seen most, if not all of them, and he really is an auteur. He's a savant auteur who is as passionate and as playful as any artist I've ever worked with. His enthusiasm is infectious, and the story is a movie that only Quentin Tarantino could make."

So yes, he's excited, and dammit so are we. "Django Unchained" lands on Christmas Day. Full poster below. [Update: North American version now added courtesy of Yahoo].

    These have similiar design to the fan made one from last year. Maybe the chap who did that one was hired to do these.

    Is it now called Unchained? Where's the "Django" part of the poster and the website/facebook page are both titled "Unchained"... what is going onnnnnnnnn

    These looks like fan-made posters you see people make and post on Tumblr for movies they love.

    Has Gatsby been moved? I can't imagine two of Leo's films going head to head on the same day. He is probably going to opt out of heavily promoting one of them... though he is arguably the biggest name in both films.

    Anyway, Leo already had 2 films open in the same week at Xmas 2002, Catch Me If You Can and Gangs of New York. They were aimed at different audiences and both did fine.

  • James | April 12, 2012 1:30 PM

    Yeah, but Spielberg opening two films within a week didn't work out so well for either one. Granted those two were aimed at almost the exact same audience, while this and Gatsby are not.

  • Tal | April 11, 2012 11:51 PM

    But these two are opening on the same day. He's had a few films that have opened within the same month or close to it, so I don't see that as being a problem but the same day is cutting it really really close.

    Yeah that's true but DiCaprio is not a director he's an actor. Different set of rules for promotion

  • Kevin | April 11, 2012 10:37 PM

    If Spielberg can have two movies open in December, so can DiCapricot.

    More excited for this than Prometheus. I can't wait to see DiCatchahoe as a villain!
