Perhaps the only thing that's been more divisive than 48fps this December is the reaction to Quentin Tarantino's highly anticipated spaghetti western slavery flick, "Django Unchained." It certainly divided the staff here enough that we ran three reviews taking on the movie, from praise to pointed criticism. But the fact of the matter is, the majority of the public still has to wait to weigh in with their verdict, and The Weinstein Company still has to sell a difficult picture for any time of year, particularly the holiday season.

Perhaps the only thing that's been more divisive than 48fps this December is the reaction to Quentin Tarantino's highly anticipated spaghetti western slavery flick, "Django Unchained." It certainly divided the staff here enough that we ran three reviews taking on the movie, from praise to pointed criticism. But the fact of the matter is, the majority of the public still has to wait to weigh in with their verdict, and The Weinstein Company still has to sell a difficult picture for any time of year, particularly the holiday season.

So the campaign continues with two clips, three TV spots and a couple of new pics, all offering up bits and pieces of new footage and scenes from the movie. You know what it's all about by now, so we don't have to tell you all over again, but even if this is your first rodeo, the cast of Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio, Samuel L. Jackson, Kerry Washington, Don Johnson and many, many, many more should be reason enough for you to buy a ticket. The glimpses of the film below show the brutality, humor and audaciousness of Tarantino's entire undertaking.
