Inglourious Basterds Trailer

It was way back in February when we saw the first teaser trailer for Inglourious Basterds. Now Quentin Tarantino is back to present the second official trailer (via TheMovieBox) for his new WWII extravaganza. There's a different feeling this time, though, since the film already had its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival. Now it has a bit more buzz, both positive and negative. And we know that Christoph Waltz as the Nazi villain Col. Hans Landa and Mélanie Laurent as Shosanna Dreyfus are the stand outs. Yet again, this trailer focuses more on the Basterds, who are only a minor part of the story. But this still looks great!

You can catch my review of Inglourious Basterds from Cannes right here if you haven't already. Excited?

Watch the second trailer for Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds:

[flv: 596 256]

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.

good to see some shit kicking for once.

Allen Reeve on Jun 22, 2009


Looking awesome but what troubles me is we now for a fact that Brad's group are in the film for only a small percentage of time compared to other parts. People are going to get totally the wrong idea!

Marcus on Jun 22, 2009


Holy Shit! This looks fantastic!

Jack on Jun 22, 2009


I cannot wait to see this when this comes out!

Nick Sears on Jun 22, 2009


Not yet rated? C'mon now.

Delvis on Jun 22, 2009


Mike Myers?

toonfed on Jun 22, 2009


Mike Myers?? Nein nein nein, yes yes yes?? Eli Roth punching nazis in the head?? Brad Pitt's forced accent?? Mmmm, I'm not sure about any of this...

Leiner on Jun 22, 2009


The film will be cut to more basterds, less anything else, I assume...

Narf on Jun 22, 2009


This can either totally fuckin work or it could be one big mess.

Daniel on Jun 22, 2009


Hells to the yes!!! 🙂

Terry the Saint on Jun 22, 2009


Hmmm.... Parts of it looked really good, other part not so. After this trailer I have more questions than answers. Can´t wait for a great Tarantino flick. Last time it was Kill Bill. I have been waiting to fucking long for his comeback.

Peter on Jun 22, 2009


They may be only a minor part of the story, but they are the big actors in the film, that is why the trailer is cut that way, $$$...and I wouldn't go so far as to say they are a minor part of the story, they are the title characters, they are a just a part of a much bigger tapestry of characters worth mention, that's all.

LINKFX on Jun 22, 2009


#12 His comeback? Really? What Tarantino movie has ever really been a total flop? I mean, he started out as a 'cult' hit. His move to the spotlight is actually pretty recent. He can't make a comeback, he hasn't really faded out yet. Keeping his movies spaced out like he does is what keeps him from burning out. People don't get sick of you if you're not in the headlines everyday... Michael Bay...

nate on Jun 22, 2009


I hope that this movie isn't too light with Basterds content. I understand the need for plot, I guess, but for me this movie would work with just the Basterds doing their thing for 100 minutes.

Andrew on Jun 22, 2009


Does anyone else think Eli Roth looks a little like Zach Quinto (Sylar) from Heroes?

CD on Jun 22, 2009


Looks like a Nazi killing good time!

Brandon on Jun 22, 2009


#14, i think #12 was talking about grindhouse seeing as thats the only movie that he made between Kill Bill and Inglorious Basterds. but i agree with 14. making one bad movie doesn't wreck your career (i.e. Michael Mann-Miami Vice). so why do you call it a comeback?

Jim on Jun 22, 2009


Death Proof had some of the best car chase sequences every captured on film. The only flaw present was the rough pacing at the beginning. To call it "bad" would just be foolish.

Anonymous on Jun 22, 2009


getting tired of that nein nein nein scene :[ lol

danielvutran on Jun 22, 2009


What 4 said I wanted this to be a nazi killing fest and thats just not what this is people are going to expect one thing and get something totally different and I get the feeling its for the worse.

Cody on Jun 22, 2009


Now that I think of it the ad campaign for this movie is incredibly misleading.

Cody on Jun 22, 2009


I think this one will be great!! With all the crappy movies coming out these days we need something Kickass!!!!

tankmaster on Jun 22, 2009


Ryan get out of WWII and get back to the Office!

Corey on Jun 22, 2009


Damn that looks great.

Sancle on Jun 22, 2009


Oh dear, when did it all start going wrong for Tarantino - this'll get slated for the dialogue and the piss poor accents alone, something I thought he used to be good at choosing for his movies. I was hoping this would be more of an R rated Kelly's Heroes remake, both these trailers still promote a movie that doesn't know what its meant to be.

CHACK on Jun 22, 2009


Tarantino trailers are like the trailers to Pixar movies...they are usually OK but nothing to write home about. But then you see the movie and you are blown away (there was nothing in the Up and Wall-E trailers that made me want to see those movies, but both films were excellent...QT's trailer for Kill Bill Vol. 1 sucked balls but the movie kicked ass). Tarantino has yet to make a bad movie and I'm sure this will not disappoint.

Kevin on Jun 22, 2009


im excited as hell for this.

Lacey on Jun 22, 2009


Okay, seriously, Mike Myers? They just had to have him in this movie? AND in the trailer? Ugh...

Alyx on Jun 22, 2009


#27, if i remember correctly, kill bill vol1 had one of the coolest trailers i can remember. that insanely awesome music with closeups, etc. very freaking cool.

mcgruff on Jun 22, 2009


Quentin Tarantino movies rock will be FRONT and Center for this.....................

SHANEDAV on Jun 22, 2009


This is the movie that Tarantino wanted to make, but put on hold to make the Kill Bill movies. People shouldn't take him so seriously, and expect some sort of serious movie from him. Simply because that just isn't going to happen. He likes to have a bit of fun, through some blood and guts in, and finally some good tunes for the soundtrack. I expect nothing different from him in this one. That doesn't mean it's going to be a bad movie. Infact personaly I think it will be up there with his previous movies, and will not dissapoint.

Marty on Jun 22, 2009


its seems like most of the first half of the final script is in there! it reads great, I dont care what the wienersteins had to bitch about, Tarantinos great! F**CK Giant robots and bad popcorn flics, Im dying to see this movie!

lando on Jun 22, 2009


well said #13

Conrad on Jun 22, 2009


This is gonna be ridiculous. Ridiculously awesome. Everyone who takes ANY of Tarantino's movies seriously, needs a wake-up call. His movies never carry any important messages or morales (other than maybe "bad guys are fucking badass!"), and they're always either full of crazy random dialogues, over the top violence or unexpected plot twists, and sometimes all of the aforementioned. They all have one thing in common. His distinct sense of humor and the intention to just plain entertain for 2 hours or more. Some like it, others hate it. This one looks like some kind of crazy cartoon, but live action. I can't wait.

SuicidalOptimist on Jun 22, 2009


Alex, word around the web is this is not the second official trailer, but just an extended special tv trailer.

Al on Jun 22, 2009


Anything that has to do with killing Nazi's has me pretty much sold.

xerxex on Jun 22, 2009


Wow that was one hell of a ride.

Fisherr on Jun 22, 2009


I know, I saw that update on Twitter... I'll be posting that one too I guess?

Alex Billington on Jun 22, 2009


Lets show the bat to the head scene one more time so everyone gets it

Frank Booth on Jun 22, 2009


Death Proof was fucking great, and i honestly am baffled by some of these comments. It's a Tarantino movie, people. This film has it's tongue planted firmly in it's cheek, no matter how 'serious' or 'bad-ass' it may appear to be. @ Frank, yeah, how dare they re-use a shot that was already in an earlier trailer. This is the first time this has ever happened, and they should be tarred and feathered for it. Fuck's sake, people, if you're going to try to bitch about a movie, at least try to think of something that has some merit. Bitching about the accents or the fact that you saw a shot in a previous trailer? @CHACK: Nothing has started going wrong for Tarantino. Tarantino makes movies he wants to see, not movies he thinks you want to see, or audiences in general want to see. If he thought like that he'd end up like Bay or Emmerich, and that's exactly the reason those two make such popular yet horribly made, paper thin and mindlessly stupid films. It's the reason studios take a great film like Blade Runner and cut it to shreds when some test audience of retards can't follow the plot for more than ten minutes before their ADHD kicks in and they get lost. Tarantino has made nothing but rock solid films, and I dare anyone to call any one of his films "bad". You might not LIKE them, because maybe they're not what you personally envisioned those films should be like from Tarantino, but not liking something is an opinion, where saying something is BAD is to challenge the abilities of the film maker. A bad film maker makes bad films. A good filmmaker will make a solid film that you maybe didn't like. There's a difference.

Squiggly on Jun 22, 2009


can not wait it when it comes out .

led panel on Jun 23, 2009


@41 - How about his Four Rooms (1995) segment "The Man from Hollywood". That was goddamn awful.

snickers on Jun 23, 2009


This movie would have to be out-fricking-standing to make up for the dialogue-diarrhea dreck that was Death Proof. Looking at the trailer(s), I'm guessing it's not going to be.

normf on Jun 23, 2009


I'm happy to be wrong about this movie, but if it's more talk talk talk and not enough action, this is going to be another (maybe) rental.

snickers on Jun 23, 2009


omg wtf is this shit ?

M on Jun 23, 2009


As a hater of all things Tarantino except that CSI episode, I don't ride on that bandwagon of worshiping that worthless hack filmmaker. BUT These IB Trailers got me goin' and I really wants to see it BAD.

DAVE ID on Jun 23, 2009


@ Squiggly - correct, that's my opinion, but why bother using test audiences if directors are making movies they themselves want to see? And WTF who said anything about challenging his abilities as a film maker? - he's not rock solid and your judging that on 6 films in 15 years since Dogs came out ( Jackie Brown anyone?) he'll make films that'll flop alongside truly awesome films that coin in Box office its just the way it is - movies are an investment not a directors hobby, Grindhouse took $25 Million domestic against a $70 Million budget. Both Death proof and Planet terror were playing to empty film houses with a 19% BO drop on the Friday to Saturday it came out, at 3 hours long, 6 months late and with limited appeal Tarantino needs to be careful. I hope Basterds is a good film all I'm saying is he perhaps needs to consider the appeal of the movie as a form of storytelling against what HE thinks is a good movie because its got OTT dialogue and schlock horror violence. Loved Dogs, Loved pulp Fiction because they had rock solid story and characters.

CHACK on Jun 24, 2009


Is that Mike Myers at 1.32? It looks like him in disguise........

You people really need to stop bashing this film from a trailer. These trailers you are seeing are nothing compared to the actual film. What you see in the trailer is only a quarter of the actual story and the trailer isn't bad at all. This Quentin's movie, he has been wanting to make this movie for 10 years and he put so much time and research into it. Don't compare this to deathproof, when deathproof wasn't something he was dying to do and put a lot of time into making. Trust me, I have read the "Inglourious Basterds" script last year and as soon as I started i couldn't put it down. Quentin knows how to make movies and he knows how to seep into our minds and take what we want to see and bring it to life. Just wait until August, then you can come on here and judge the film. Don't just bash it without knowing...or at least go check out the reviews for it when it played at cannes. For the people saying that you won't see a lot of basterds, they are sort of wrong. The trailer is alittle misleading cause it only shows the basterds and not the other story but There are some pretty classic tarantino scenes with the basterds. Either way the story is original from any other nazi film and coming from someone who makes movies and writes scripts and from someone who has read the script last year, I say this is going to be a classic Tarantino film. No one will be dissapointed from this. Just wait until August and you will find out.

Lui on Jun 26, 2009


Anybody know the music that starts at 1:17? Just curious.

Delvis on Jun 29, 2009


Saw an advanced showing last night - best movie i've seen all year

Don on Aug 16, 2009


One of the best flicks that I have seen in long time...and am gonna watch it tonight again..IB is up there with Pulp Fiction but not that awesome..but still it rocks...

Raj on Oct 9, 2009


#16 CD - Yes, I thought so too when I saw the film. Eli Roth looks a lot like Zach Quinto from heroes. I thought it was him for a moment, till my bf showed me otherwise. Good movie, True to the Tarantino style.

Roch on Nov 7, 2009


For all those who didn't get the chance to see this masterpiece in a cinema, you can do it here:
