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.
