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.

  • ohmygod! the one with the knife basically says what the whole bloody movie is about! although im pretty sure they could do these better, not that i don't like them but still it's quentin tarantino. his posters usually are among the best.
  • Andrew
    My favorite is the baseball bat, definitely.
  • xerxerxex
    The rifle in the one.
  • tzarinna

  • nate
    I love these posters. More than any posters ever. More than I will ever love any posters to come.
  • bassbin
    is this a true story-i dont know, there was a division of soldiers from new zealand that scalped and ate some germans in ww2, without a doubt from what ive seen this wud be a future classic
  • dave13
    yeah, the bat and helmet is my favorite too.
  • andrew
    man i love all of these. i guess if i had to pick i'd go with the bat - baseball fan here. they really get the point across really well.
  • Very cool.
  • jackson pollack
    lame... this is gonna be a 2 hour bloodbath... way too much implied violence for me
  • Janny
    i'm with #2 the baseball bat one is awsome
  • Cinemassiv
    This is going to suck.
  • Movieraider321
    11...have you seen tarantino movies? just wanted to ask, my favorite is the knife but the baseball bat is a very close second
  • Da Man
    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.
  • Very cool and I like how Brad Pitt's name isn't plastered all over it.
  • Kevin
    I agree...the bat is the best one.
  • Fisherr
    The Best looking one to me is the Base bat one.
  • johnny
    they cant even spell bastard right
  • felipe
    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.
  • zetsu
    they look fucking great can't wait.
  • Nikhil Hariharan
    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.
  • Jonathan Allen
    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.
  • Roberto Dinamite
    OMG! Tarantino is a freakin' genius. Like, oh my GOD. he is totally like the best director EVEEER.
  • 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.
