Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds Confirmed for Cannes!

At the Cannes Film Festival last year, Quentin Tarantino boldly stated that he would be back "next year" with Inglourious Basterds in hand. Of course, we all took that statement as his word that he would actually make the movie, which did happen. But I always thought that was a bit of a crazy thing to say, unless he had someone inside that had already guaranteed him his admittance before he had even shot the film or finished the script. Whether it was actually BS or not, Variety has confirmed that Inglourious Basterds did indeed make it into Cannes, and will be premiering "in competition" during the fest.

Tarantino won a Palme d'Or at Cannes in 1994 for Pulp Fiction, but hasn't won any awards since then, however he has been invited back as a member of the jury multiple times. Pixar's Up was announced was the opening night film a few weeks ago. The remainder of this year's Cannes line-up will be announced on April 23rd. I have been confirmed and will be attending Cannes in May. This makes me quite excited, as two of my most anticipated movies are now premiering there, so look forward to my reviews. Universal and The Weinstein Company will debut Inglourious Basterds in theaters officially in the US on August 21st.

I read the script and I was kind of dissapointed that most of the movie is going to be in subtitles. The trailer threw me off. Only like chapter 2, 4 and some of 5 are in english. the scenes with Brad Pitt and his crew. Brad Pitt's gots some pretty good lines though. And some funny scenes.

Sorry, The_Phantom, but subtitles don't warrant disappointment, especially for a movie taking place in Nazi-occupied France.....I mean, you do know that WWII wasn't all in English, right?

The two films of recent i've seen with subtitles, Valentine and The Orphanage, were the most refreshing films i've seen in a while. On a different note, I really hope this is the Cannes year for me. Just Up and Basterds is all i need.

Um yeah I know that WWII wasn't all in English. I'm just saying that it might throw off some people cause the trailer was all in english. Go read the script for you self at Simplyscripts.com.
