As we mentioned in this weekend’s Comic Con panel coverage, director Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Django Unchained’ is already stirring up a great amount of interest. The film follows Django (Jamie Foxx), a slave in the American South living two...

Despite having "comic" in its title, much of the attention lavished on Comic Con these days has to do with the various movie and TV panels, not comic books. Ironically, it takes the involvement of one of the most admired filmmakers working today to get comics back into the headlines. For the record, that headline is "Quentin Tarantino Will Be Making His Comic Writing Debut By Adapting 'Django Unchained' Into A Five-Part Miniseries For DC Comics."
Looks like Quentin Tarantino's upcoming 'Django Unchained' is big enough to get its own own panel inside Comic-Con 2012's Hall H, which previously housed large panels by Disney, Sony and 'The Walking Dead,' to name just a few. Well, when you add names like Leonardo DiCaprio, Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz and Samuel L. Jackson to Tarantino, it's bound to get some special attention.
We hope you've got your nerdy overnight bags packed and ready to go because Comic-Con 2012 is fast approaching. We've given you the full rundown on TV panels, but what about all those amazing movie panels? Read on for a full schedule of movie panels and what to expect from the big studios this year.
'Django Unchained' is already ramping up its marketing campaign despite not hitting theaters until Christmas. Last night during the BET Awards, Quentin Tarantino and The Weinstein Co. debuted an extended :60 TV spot for the film with some new footage (including new looks at Leonardo DiCaprio and Samuel L. Jackson).
The trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Django Unchained’ showed us something we haven’t seen before: A sadistic side of Leonardo DiCaprio. Oh, we’ve see DiCaprio unhinged before. Scorsese taps into an animalistic side of the Oscar-nominated actor at regular intervals. (Rent ‘Shutter Island’ or ‘Gangs of New York’ for examples.) But the Leo on display in Tarantino’s film is … different. He’s crazy. And he’s loving it.
Back in November, Jonah Hill revealed he had to turn down a role in Quentin Tarantino's 'Django Unchained' because of a commitment to the upcoming Ben Stiller comedy 'The Watch.' Well, as luck would have it, a good eight months later, Hill's schedule has cleared up and he's back in 'Django' for a supporting role. As it turns out he won't be playing the character Tarantino originally had in mind for him, so what will he be doing?
Back when Quentin Tarantino was sprinting through the casting process on his upcoming ‘Django Unchained,’ an unconventional name was attached to the lead role of a vengeful slave seeking to free his wife from a vicious plantation owner. That name was Will Smith, Mr. “Getting Jiggy With It,” who was rumored to be willing to tarnish his clean-cut image to get down and dirty with Tarantino for the benefit of a potentially controversial project. Smith eventually passed, though, and the part went to Jamie Foxx.
Today, Smith explains why.

'Django Unchained' has a new international trailer and after watching this, if you're like us, then Christmas can't get here fast enough. Not because of what Santa's going to put under our trees, no, what we want is 'Django' (which opens on Christmas Day).
The trailer for 'Django Unchained' is magnificent. Any film by Quentin Tarantino is a reason for movie fans to celebrate, but a Quentin Tarantino movie about a freed slave turned bounty hunter who goes after the scumbags who stole his wife? Let's get in line right now. Seriously. Let's do it. Since we're so impatient for a film that's still six months away, we took a frame-by-frame look through the trailer.
