Badass Set of Posters for Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds
Hot on the heels of the new teaser trailer for Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds, a set of three new teaser posters have hit the web, and they are very badass. It goes without question that Universal and The Weinstein Company are going to really try and capture the "badass-ness" of Inglourious Basterds in all of the marketing. So far so good, I'd say! Thanks to Empire, we've got our first look at the three of them. And just to mention, they're labeled as international posters, because I'm sure that's the only way they could get away with so much blood and implied violence on them, since they're definitely not MPAA approved.
I've featured my favorite of the three in full-size below, with the other two smaller beneath it. Click any of them to head over to Empire for high res versions of each of the posters. Which is your favorite?
During World War II, a group of Jewish-American soldiers known as "the Basterds" are chosen to spread fear throughout the Third Reich by scalping and brutally killing Nazis. The Basterds soon cross paths with a young French girl named Shosanna who runs a movie theater in Paris that is frequented by 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 previously. The Weinstein Company and Universal have partnered to bring us Tarantino's WWII masterpiece in all of its brilliant glory. After first debuting at the Cannes Film Festival, Inglourious Basterds will now hit theaters worldwide on August 21st this year.

This is going to suck.

11...have you seen tarantino movies? just wanted to ask, my favorite is the knife but the baseball bat is a very close second

I think the rifle one might be my favorite, mostly because of the bloody fingernails. They make for a really cool visual. Tarantino's a geniusman, man.
Da Man on Feb 20, 2009
Very cool and I like how Brad Pitt's name isn't plastered all over it.
Ryan on Feb 20, 2009
I agree...the bat is the best one.
Kevin on Feb 20, 2009
The Best looking one to me is the Base bat one.
Fisherr on Feb 20, 2009
they cant even spell bastard right
johnny on Feb 21, 2009
did anyone else noticed that it is Tarantino´s handwriting at the rifle? compare this with the cover of his script that was seen (also here at FS). that was very well thought by the designers, just amazing.
felipe on Feb 21, 2009
they look fucking great can't wait.
zetsu on Feb 21, 2009
The best one is the baseball bat poster, plus i have a feeling that the scene with that item is going to be so amazing.

WTF is wrong with you guys?? you keep "electing" your favorites based on typical and empty "badasness" when this is a TARANTINO movie, there´s much more than that, if you want badass then go see GI JOE, because with Tarantino you will need to think a little more than you´re used to, difficult, right? yeah and that´s what makes him awesome and you should give some props to that. only a few people noticed the director´s handwritting on the rifle and when that was pointed out it got ignored by the same empty comments as before. I really was hoping this to generate some discussion, but apparently everyone is interested on the no-brainer....if so, then why bother coming here? it´s just sad. and #19, I really hope that you´re joking, because otherwise you just happen to be the dumbest person that ever dared to post a comment on a Tarantino related article, you´ll make me sick if that´s true.

OMG! Tarantino is a freakin' genius. Like, oh my GOD. he is totally like the best director EVEEER.
Roberto Dinamite on Feb 22, 2009
Quentin Tarantino made this? oooh I'm going to avoid this like the plague. In regards rated R movies its usually the sex & swearing that bugs me first. Violence isn't usually the first thing to bug me. But the amount of fake blood in his movies makes my skin crawl.
