Great New Inglourious Basterds Photos

There is nothing that I am more excited to see right now than Inglourious Basterds, but that may be because I'm at Cannes and I get to see it in less than a week. I'm also trying not to even think about it, to keep my expectations in check, so I can go in and be blown away. I was trying not to post much from it (besides new posters), but then these new photos hit on CineMovies (via The Playlist) and I couldn't help it - they all look great. I'm a sucker for great photographer, and not only are these photos just that, but they feature some more of the obscure characters from Quentin Tarantino's film that we haven't seen yet.

Inglourious Basterds

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.

Al on May 13, 2009


@#3 Exactly. lol Bernie I guess was somehow transported by the blast into Inglorious Basterds.

Craig on May 13, 2009


Michael Fassbender in the picture you didn't know..

Jordan Raup on May 13, 2009


Guh, so ridiculously excited!

Garrett on May 13, 2009


Daniel Bruhl is in this? I had no idea! This movie just jumped up 3000 points in my book.

Josiah on May 13, 2009


Alex, I wouldn't go in expecting this to be non-stop, gory, action, or "Kill Bill Vol 1" with guns if I were you (judging by what your movie tastes appear to be, and how excited you are, I'm guessing you're expecting something along those lines... I could be wrong though). Also, that seems to be the way they are (innaccurately) promoting the film. I read the screenplay and, unless they change a ton of it, it's not going to be anything along those lines, but if it is as great to watch as it was to read you SHOULDbe "blown away"...... that is, if you are an admirer of his '90s work, as I very much am.

Til Schweiger sucks...but you have to put him in the film if you want some German cash to finance this movie.

pipo on May 13, 2009


Still the only who doesn't care about this, I see.

Ian @ MovieViral on May 13, 2009


Production looks fantastic!

Nick Sears on May 13, 2009


Can't wait!

Mister_Bubbles on May 13, 2009


If what 9 says is true Ill be disappointed. Want this to be a gory nazi killin fest.

Cody on May 13, 2009


13, i think you and 9 are both a way. I read the screenplay as well, and see it as a mix of both. There are moments of dialog heavy(only) scenes, yet at the same time there are parts that make me think Tim Roth circa Reservoir Dogs, although that isnt really action....more or less violence. In either case, expect a hell of a good film.

Al on May 13, 2009


haha Daniel Brühl looks like Toby

Silver on May 13, 2009


This looks absolutely incredible!

#15 stole my thunder

L on May 13, 2009


I want it NOW!!!! I've been dieing to see this since the first utterance of it by Tarantino.

Brandon on May 13, 2009


I read the script too and I have to agree. Mostly cause I don't like movies with subtitles especially when you see the trailer it only shows the parts with english. However, I did think that the script was pretty descent, But that's how Tarintino's movies are, there are scenes with long heavy dialogue and then there are scenes that are the opposite. Plus I only liked the scenes with Brad Pitt and his Basterds are in cause those were the only entertaining parts of the script for me at least.

The_Phantom on May 13, 2009


I have a bad feeling that Tarantino fucked this up somehow...Nothing about it yet seems right, or even points to it being a great film. I dont think it will hold up to his other films, and will not be the "masterpiece" he wanted.

Derek on May 13, 2009


Can anyone explain to me what they are excited about exactly? These photos are simple head shots. And as for the two that show the sets, they look cheap (especially the last). I'm not saying that this will suck. I'm just saying that I still haven't seen anything (including the above photos and the trailer) to convince me that this will be a great movie.

Jacob on May 14, 2009


I want another Jackie Brown. The rest of his stuff I never much cared for.

sleepykid on May 14, 2009


Dude, number 5 totally beat me to the Watchmen joke. Like by a mile.

Da Man on May 14, 2009


I am looking forward to this movie.
