New Inglourious Basterds Poster - Eli Roth is a Basterd
Hell yes! The newest Inglourious Basterds character poster has been revealed - and this time Eli Roth is the Basterd. Last week we featured the Brad Pitt poster, which looked quite awesome. And ironically I wrote about how "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.'" My wish has been granted (thanks to QTArchives), and it only took two days! I have a feeling that bat he's carrying around is going to become legendary. We've already seen him use it in the trailer, but just wait until they don't cut away right when it's about to hit. Damn, he is a bastard!
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.

This is so strange and I can't really tell you why, but everytime I look at the poster I think "Indiana Jones is up to no good"...

It's the smirk: Makes him look like a dumbass.

I already hate this movie.

@ Widescreen Wonderland I totally see that. He's got the same sort of smile that Harrison Ford has and the leather jacket only seals the deal. Good observation.

Wow badass...a sawn off shotgun and a bat I mean the epitome of badassery

Not one seat will be filled by anyone at the theater dying to see that smirking dipshit. Tarantino's shot his wad. Seriously, who gives a crap about this disaster? T hasn't made even a decent flick since Reservoir Dogs, and Roth's the poster-boy for has-beens. Yargh, I say--even the preview sucked.

I think you're the one that shot your wad Chad. Tarantino hasn't made a good movie since Reservoir Dogs? Suck a dick, douchebag.

So is this film going to be The Dirty Dozen for 14-yr old boys who've just discovered jerking off or what? And Roth here gives me the creeps - but not in a good way. If you saw him hanging around the local playground you'd call the fucking cops right away. That stare -ewww!

I'm kinda starting out not liking Roth's character, because of Roth. Hated Hostel, I'm all for blood and gore, but those movies were just sickly sadistic. The only other acting performance I've seen him in is Death Proof, and he played a real creepo in that one. Just something about Inglourious that I haven't necessarily latched onto...

Eli Roth always looked like a dude version of Sarah Silverman to me.

Methinks I'm in love.

I'm psyched for this mess. I'm not crazy for Eli Roth's movies, but the trailer for Thanksgiving was so freaking hilarious I can't not like him just a little bit. And If this movie is even half as cool as the trailers make it look it's gonna rock. Will it rival Pulp Fiction? Probably not, but I would love to be proven wrong about that.

This movie is going to be CUCKING FRAZY!

Roth is a talentless Jew who got to where he was because he's been sucking on QT's dick for years now.
Drax on May 4, 2009
ladies will love that man carpet!

As much as I love seeing Roth and Pitt being called "basterds", I would prefer the posters to look more drawn like they were in the sixties. Here's an example: http://www.impawards.com/1967/dirty_dozen.html

Is it me or do Him and Zacary Quinto look almost exactly the same?

#21 & #22, back in the uk that Dirty Dozen poster was free with a film magazine called Neon. It was a full size front sheet. Best poster ever to be given free in a magazine. It's got pride and place on my living room wall.
