Vanity Fair's Gorgeous Inglourious Basterds Basterds Photos

On the same day that it's confirmed that Inglourious Basterds will premiere at Cannes, Vanity Fair has posted a beautiful selection of their own new photos from the film. Vanity Fair has consistently taken great photos, and this time it's no exception, giving us a glimpse at the more glorious side of Tarantino's gritty WWII epic. Included below is our very first look at Mélanie Laurent as Shosanna Dreyfus (top left photo below), the woman who at the start flees to Paris and helps run a movie theater and is essentially who the story is about. Read on for a few more of these photos and head over to Vanity Fair to see the rest!

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.
