Even though it's not coming out until Christmas, and is still shooting, The Weinstein Company are getting the ball rolling very early on Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained." And it's easy to see why. While the director may be a name brand at this point, his latest, a slavery-centered spaghetti western, could be his most controversial yet. However, with early footage screened at the Cannes Film Festival that delivered everything fans now expect from the director, and with rumors of a teaser trailer unspooling in front of "Prometheus," buzz is building for the film and it looks like the audiences will soon get a taste of what Tarantino is brewing.

Even though it's not coming out until Christmas, and is still shooting, The Weinstein Company are getting the ball rolling very early on Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained." And it's easy to see why. While the director may be a name brand at this point, his latest, a slavery-centered spaghetti western, could be his most controversial yet. However, with early footage screened at the Cannes Film Festival that delivered everything fans now expect from the director, and with rumors of a teaser trailer unspooling in front of "Prometheus," buzz is building for the film and it looks like the audiences will soon get a taste of what Tarantino is brewing.

Until then, a batch of new images featuring the leads Christoph Waltz, Jamie Foxx and Leonardo DiCaprio will have to suffice as a pretty decent look at what is coming in the film. The images are a mix of stills from the footage we saw from Cannes along with a few new peeks, but they do capture the sort of outlandish spirit being brought to the forthcoming film. Yes, the costuming is much more colorful that your standard Sergio Leone flick, and we can tell you the violence is pretty brutal from what we've seen, but it all retains Tarantino's signature spark for dialogue and wit.

"When this movie's done, there's gonna be some hot button issues but, given my background, I think I'll be able to get some points across. The one thing that stuck out to me in the script was that Django was married. Back then, to be married was taboo. This is a love story. He's not trying to stop slavery. He's not trying to do anything but find the love of his life - which is like trying to find a needle in a world of haystacks," Foxx told Empire

The Weinstein Company will unwrap "Django Unchained" on Christmas Day. Take a look below. [CinemaTeaser]
