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.

Way back at the beginning of the year, there was a bit of excitement and confusion when legendary Italian actor Franco Nero said he was making a spaghetti western with Quentin Tarantino titled "The Angel, the Brute and the Wise." Many assumed the latter was directing the film -- which Nero said would also star Keith Carradine and Treat Williams -- however it soon transpired that Tarantino was directing a spaghetti western of sorts, "Django Unchained," and that "The Angel, the Brute and the Wise" was something else entirely. Anyway, as talk of Tarantino's slavery vengeance pic heated up, everyone pretty much forgot about Nero's project but he still insists it's happening and that Tarantino will play a small role in it.
