New Inglourious Basterds Poster - Brad Pitt is a Basterd
Brad Pitt is a Basterd! The Weinstein Company and Universal have co-debuted (via Ain't It Cool News) a brand new character poster for Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds. As you might've guessed, it only features Brad Pitt as Lt. Aldo Raine (and his huge neck scar), with the tagline mentioned above. I really hope they make a series of eight of these, because I'd love to see the poster that says "Eli Roth is a Basterd" and every other Basterd from this as well. Word is that these will start showing up around Cannes soon, which is where I'll be located starting May 10th onwards. Check this out in all of its full-size glory below.
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.

somewhat bland but i'm neither excited nor dissappointed. trailer looked sweet and Reservoir Dogs is one of my favorite movies ever so i'm excited from that. poster really doesn't do it for me though like the first set of posters did.

Brad Pitt is GORGEOUS!!! As he gets older, I'm appreciating him more and more. I cant wait to see this movie! I'd reeeeeally like a shot at inspecting that scar more thoroughly...lol! Lucky lucky luck ANGELINA!

The Ingorious Basterds poster is great. They really know how to sell their movie. Anything Brad Pitt does, I'll see. He's already done a myriad of roles, 90% of which were interesting and blew me away. He really knows how to pick em. I am so glad he pulled out of STATE OF PLAY because that movie sucked! No one wants to see Russell Crowe and Ben Affleck anymore....and the way the studio projected to the public that Brad had done something wrong, when he was just honoring the Writers Strike at the time was very manipulative. I am sooooo glad the studio lost money on that one, and that STATE OF PLAY is doing HORRIBLE at the box office right now! Back to Inglorious Basterds....I will be the first one in the theatre opening day!!!!!! Go Brad!

This is such a talentless and Stu-Pitt looking guy, who made him an "actor"...what a misunderstading...

Tarantino's films have always been a hit-miss for me. I loved his earlier stuff and Kill Bill was cool but I did not like Jackie Brown or Death Proof. Hopefully this will be Tarantino at his best.

I agree. Pitt is soooooo overrated. He only got to where he is because of his looks and making smart role choices. I mean really, we all know he's not that great an actor, but he can open a film. He makes money at the box office and that's really all that matters.

#10in the words of a great man: "You're fucking High!" Pitt is an extremely gifited actor.

Pitt is really good when it comes to crazy roles like Fight Club or 12 Monkeys. Other than that he's not all that great. In Troy I have to say he over-acted way too much, it didn't look as natural as Russell Crowe engaged his role in Gladiator.

Some people are just jealous of Brad Pitt's good looks.
AbercrombieAndBitch on May 2, 2009
Man fuck you guys, hes has been in fucking everything, he has some of the widest spread out genre roles of like any actor and he never dissappoints...now thats all that really matter. But his knife is fucking sweet. Wait also #10 isnt picking the right roles one of the biggest thing an actor needs to be a good actor, your logic is retarded i think you are stoned.
Cody on May 2, 2009
I guessing it will be as bad or worse than "Death Proof."

Brad picks the right roles and he always has thus far delivered in them. Every great star has a detractor, but the is no stealing what this man has consistantly done for Hollywood and humanity on the side. This is one of the few big actor types we all need to respect, he's great in movies and doing the right thing when he's not. Oh yeah, he has a rather attractive wife, too. 🙂

I love Bard Pitt and i absolutely agree with #11 In Ben Button he made an outstanding performance,i hate Quentin Tarintino but i'll watch the movie just for Pitt.
Fisherr on May 3, 2009
why cant they spell bastard right?
perry on May 3, 2009
"No one wants to see Russell Crowe and Ben Affleck anymore" What? Are you a 12 year old girl? State of Play wasn't the greatest movie but Russel Crowe never fails.
Ryderup on May 3, 2009
I can't believe no one is talking about that huge scar he has across his neck. Did someone try to slit his throat? I haven't noticed it until now.
Tom Brazelton on May 3, 2009
#18, the misspelling of bastard is on purpose. And I'm gonna guess the scar, is for the movie... Not real. I do like the deer antler hunting knife... Adds a primal touch to it.
nate on May 3, 2009
Guessing some Nazi almost hung him therefore his motivation for revenge and such. Cause the scar looks almost like noose was a around his neck and he was hangin. Probably wrong though
Cody on May 3, 2009
@ Cody #22.... I like that guess actually. I can totally see a Tarintino style flashback... or "uncomfortable hunk of metal" dialog going on to tell that story.
dRailer on May 3, 2009
#22 Actually there is no hint as to how he got the scar in the script so . . . its just there to make him look more like a Badass Basterd I guess #6 State of Play is doing alright at the box office last time I checked and Russell Crowe is awesome #8 and #10 Brad is a rather entertaining fellow in movies which is the whole point of watching movies right? Sure he isn't the Daniel Day-Lewis calibre melting into characters type, but heck I like watching him.

First movie Brad Pitt looked like a future star in was Thelma & Louise (1991).
avoidz on May 4, 2009
I'm psyched for this movie. Finally Tarantino returns to the cinema.
aaron on May 4, 2009
Pitt can only be somewhat tolerable in films set in "contemporary" time. Only then is he able to tap into his modern sensibilities and therefore comes across as believable in the role. That is why Fight Club and 12 Monkeys are great films for Pitt. Even the Oceans films work because of this fact. However, he cannot do "period" films. He simply cannot translate the pathos of a time he has not himself experienced, so therefore he really is a poor actor. Sorry peeps, he stuck out like a sore thumb in Troy, 7 years in Tibet and Benjamin Button. He maybe could be great, but his lack of formal/classical training is real. and it shows. He sure is purdy though.

I love the subtle throat cut on his neck
