Four Ass Kickin' Character Posters for Inglourious Basterds

This just keeps getting better! When I featured that gorgeous Italian poster for Inglourious Basterds a few weeks ago, I didn't expect we'd ever see an English version of it. But lo and behold, not only is there an English version, but we have four individual character posters based off that same design! Great character choices (glad to see both Mélanie Laurent and Christoph Waltz featured in this series), great quotes for each of them, this marketing campaign is kickin' some ass. I've got to say one thing though - screw Diane Kruger, the quirky French beauty Mélanie Laurent is my favorite actress from this. She's awesome, trust me!
Thanks to our friends across the pond at Empire for providing us with these beauties today. Take a look!
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.
I'm scared the marketing will turn out better than the movie, just because the marketing has been so great.

This is lookin' really good! I'm sure Quentin will deliver the goods! Alex, you should know better than to rag on Diane Kruger. She's awesome too and just as hot as Melanie Laurent!

im not so sure its cool to put up posters that say jew hunter on them. thats just my opinion though

Yeah see your point #9 but it evens out with Lt. Aldos poster, Nazi killer>Jew hunter plus its no different than having them say it in a trailer. Also dont take the above comparison the wrong way which I know some of you will.
