"Because we love making movies!" Is this all a big joke? Nope, apparently Quentin Tarantino did actually appear on "American Idol" last night, and he apparently did show this bit of footage from Inglourious Basterds, which is all a bit odd because what fans of "American Idol" would event want to see this? Oh, right, probably all of them, because they're all in love with Brad Pitt. Anyway, The Weinstein Company has sent over this newest bit of footage from Inglourious Basterds that aired yesterday during "American Idol." Word is this footage below is the "too-hot-for-TV" version though, including Mike Myers, so check it out!
Watch the "American Idol" footage of Quentin Tarantino's 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.
