Gorgeous Italian Poster for Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds

Although all of those "is a Basterd" posters we saw during Cannes were awesome - this new one definitely kicks their ass. A new Italian poster for Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds has popped up online and it's gorgeous. I absolutely love this poster. It reminds me of the old hand-painted James Bond posters with the main cast posing in front and a montage of other actors in the background. To top it off, my excitement for Inglourious Basterds is growing by the minute, as I have a feeling it's going to be huge when August rolls around. I just hope we get a US version of this poster or I'll be flying to Italy to get one myself!
Thanks to our Italian friends over at BadTaste.it for putting up this awesome poster today! Check it out:
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.
Sweet, I absolutely have to get this poster. Must... Resist... Urge... To... Type... FIRST...

Infamous?? please explain

Stop it with the 'first' shit Ajax. Were (mostly) all adults here. Grow up.

Infamous because his films usually have a lot of adult language, dark humor, and violence? That would be my guess. However Tarantino himself is not infamous, no. On topic, this poster looks good. I'm just hoping this movie isn't boring... for some reason there's something in the back of my mind telling me this is going to bore me. I really hope that thing is wrong, because I want this to kick my ass.

Whats the other classic???
mordok on Jun 17, 2009
the other classic, Pulp Fiction perhaps. Hell I'd even say Reservoir Dogs...or is the question sarcastic. I can never tell these days! Nah I don't mean that!

One of the best posters I've seen a looong while! Great work! Reminds me of them ole days.

That is what movie posters are supposed to look like. I have to get my hands on one of these.
RC on Jun 17, 2009
I'd say that Tarantino has yet to make a movie that ISN'T a classic. Then again, I'm a Tarantino groupie (I won't lie).

Definitely my favorite of the IB posters.

Bastardi Senza Gloria - That sounds as cool as Inglorious Basterds itself
