Check These Out: The Lost Art of Inglourious Basterds Posters

SA Studios Global's Film Marketing Division has teamed up with Quentin Tarantino, Upper Playground and The Weinstein Company to present The Lost Art of Inglourious Basterds. A new art gallery is being opened in downtown Los Angeles as a fundraiser for The American Red Cross to help the victims of the Haiti Earthquake. We received an email today with a link to Upper Playground where they have over 14 shots of some the different artwork that's being sold and it's seriously AWESOME stuff. I thought it couldn't get any better than that unused James Goodridge poster from last year, but these are the absolute cream of the crop.
I've picked a few of my favorites which you can see below - head to Upper Playground to see a few more.
The gallery's creative team has assembled the following select group of accomplished artists: David Choe, Sam Flores, Estevan Oriol, Grotesk, Jeremy Fish, Patrick Martinez, Alex Pardee, Munk One, Dora Drimalas, N8 Van Dyke, Rene Alamanza, Morning Breath and Skinner Davis, to create their own poster art based off their interpretation of the Oscar Nominated film, Inglourious Basterds artwork. Only six of each poster is being made and each one will be numbered and signed by Quentin Tarantino. They sell for $300 a piece. If you think you can afford one, head to the Upper Playground Art Gallery in LA on February 18th from 6PM to 9PM to try and buy one. I'd love to get one, but I don't have that much money!

1st... Man these are some kick ass posters. I thought the same thing, that last one just couldn't be topped, but alas, these come out. Love it. Love them. Love the movie. Masterpiece. Everything Tarantino does, masterpiece. ('cept Jackie Brown)

I like third one on the top. The first on the second row, and uhh...Screw it, I like them all! But the best is the third on the top row!

They are nice and everything, but don't really match up with the movie in terms of tone. Just my opinion.
