New Inglourious Basterds Poster - Eli Roth is a Basterd
Hell yes! The newest Inglourious Basterds character poster has been revealed - and this time Eli Roth is the Basterd. Last week we featured the Brad Pitt poster, which looked quite awesome. And ironically I wrote about how "I really hope they make a series of eight of these, because I'd love to see the poster that says 'Eli Roth is a Basterd.'" My wish has been granted (thanks to QTArchives), and it only took two days! I have a feeling that bat he's carrying around is going to become legendary. We've already seen him use it in the trailer, but just wait until they don't cut away right when it's about to hit. Damn, he is a bastard!
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.
