Two New Official Photos from Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds
Two new photos from Quentin Tarantino's highly anticipated Inglourious Basterds have popped up on Filmz.ru. It's been rather quiet ever since Tarantino started shooting in Europe a few months ago and now we're all just waiting patiently for more photos like this and eventually a trailer. Below you'll see another shot of Brad Pitt as Lt. Aldo Raine complimenting the grittier photo we saw of Pitt back in October. Seen in the second photo is Diane Kruger as Bridget von Hammersmark, an undercover agent and German actress who helps the Basterds. I'm glad to see that we've at least got a few more photos to keep us patient.
Neither of these really make me that excited, but in the long run, it won't matter. Because by the time we get an actual trailer, both of these photos will be completely forgotten. What do you think of them?
During World War II a group of Jewish-American soldiers known as "the Basterds" are chosen specifically to spread fear throughout the Third Reich by scalping and brutally killing Nazis. The Basterds soon cross paths with a French-Jewish teenage girl who runs a movie theater in Paris which is targeted by the soldiers.
Inglourious Basterds is both written and directed by the infamous Quentin Tarantino, of everything from Reservoir Dogs to Pulp Fiction to Kill Bill to Death Proof. The Weinstein Company and Universal have partnered to bring us Tarantino's WWII film in all of its glory. Inglourious Basterds does not have a theatrical release date set yet, but we can expect to see it in sometime in the later half of 2009.
