Leo vs. Leo

As the villainous "Calvin Caddie" 
Leonardo Dicaprio will be duelling himself come Christmas Day 2012, as he has two highly anticipated films opening that day. Both are period pieces helmed by markedly diverging directors.

In Quentin Tarantino's stylized Western Django Unchained, set primarily in the pre-Civil War South, a slave-turned-bounty hunter (Jamie Foxx)-- with the help of his mentor (Christoph Walz)-- sets out to rescue his wife (Kerry Washington) from a brutal Mississippi plantation owner (Dicaprio). The films also features Samuel L. Jackson, Sasha Baron Cohen, and Kurt Russell.

Promising to be far less violent but no less dramatic is Baz Lurhmann's upcoming 3-D adaptation of The Great Gatsby. Set in New York and Long Island in 1922, the movie is anchored by Dicaprio in the titular role with Carey Mulligan as "Daisy Buchanan" and Toby McGuire as "Nick Carraway". This promises to be a stylish and gorgeous production.
