Inglourious Basterds Movie Trailer

Inglourious Basterds movieThe first official movie trailer of Inglourious Basterds is finally available:


Once upon a time in Nazi-occupied France:

Activate, Infiltrate, Exterminate.

You haven't seen war until you've seen it through the eyes of Quentin Tarantino!

There are no crimes behind enemy lines!

That's a real Quentin Tarantino movie for sure, but besides elements inspired by Italian director Enzo Castellari's 1978 movie Inglorious Bastards, there seems to be some influence from Charlie Chaplin (the way the crazy German dictator is portrayed)!

Inglourious Basterds Teaser Preview

A sneak preview of the teaser trailer of Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds is running on Entertainment Weekly:

Brad Pitt looks quite good in the role of the basterd Lt. Aldo Raine aka Aldo the Apache.

Impatient to see the full trailer of this World War II action epic movie tomorrow: Quentin Tarantino is going to surprise us one more time with Inglourious Basterds!

The movie Inglourious Basterds, set In Nazi-occupied France during World War II, is about a group of Jewish-American soldiers known as "The Basterds" who are chosen specifically to spread fear throughout the Third Reich by scalping and brutally killing Nazis. The Basterds soon cross paths with a French-Jewish teenage girl who runs a movie theater in Paris which is targeted by the soldiers.

Inglorious Basterds Cast

The movie Inglourious Basterds has the largest cast of characters (with speaking roles) of any Tarantino film to date. Just take a look to this list:

The Allies

The Basterds

- Brad Pitt as Lt. Aldo Raine aka "Aldo the Apache": An illiterate hillbilly from the mountains of Tennessee, who puts together a team of eight Jewish-American soldiers. He bears a rope burn on his neck, which will never be mentioned in the film (the script hints that he might have survived a lynching). One of the film´s main protagonists: the character has been described as "a voluble, freewheeling outlaw" similar to Jules Winnfield from Tarantino's Pulp Fiction.

- Eli Roth as Sgt. Donnie Donowitz: "A baseball bat-swinging Nazi hunter" who is known as "The Bear Jew" among Nazis. Some of them seem to believe that Donowitz is in fact, a vengeful golem.

- B. J. Novak as PFC Utivich aka "The Little One"

- Til Schweiger as Sgt. Hugo Stiglitz: A German-born psychopath recruited by Aldo Raine to kill Nazis.

- Samm Levine as PFC Hirschberg

- Omar Doom as PFC Ulmer

- Michael Bacall as Zimmerman

- Gedeon Burkhard as CPL. Wilhelm Wicki: An Austrian Jew.

- Paul Rust as an unnamed Basterd

The British

- Michael Fassbender as Lt. Archie Hicox: A "snappy and handsome British Lieutenant" and movie buff. He is described in the script as a "young George Sanders type". One of the film's main protagonists, albeit introduced later in the movie.

- Mike Myers as Gen. Ed Fenech: A British "military mastermind" who provides a plot to kill Nazi leadership.

- Rod Taylor as Winston Churchill: The then Prime Minister of the United Kingdom

The Jews (in Occupied France)

- Melanie Laurent as Shoshanna Dreyfus: A young Jewish girl on the run. One of the film's main protoganists

- Lea Seydoux as Young Shoshanna

- Cloris Leachman as Mrs. Himmelstein

The Axis Powers

The Nazis

- Christoph Waltz as Col. Hans Landa: A charming yet sinister pipe-smoking Nazi officer nicknamed the "Jew Hunter" in reference to his keen ability to locate Jews hiding throughout France. The primary antagonist of the film.

- Daniel Bruhl as Frederick Zoller: A German war hero starring in Joseph Goebbels newest Propaganda Film (entitled "Stolz der Nation") which is actually directed by Eli Roth.

- August Diehl as Major Deiter Hellstrom

- Sonke Mohring as Private Butz

- Richard Sammel as Sgt. Werner Rachtman

- Sylvester Groth as Joseph Goebbels

- Martin Wuttke as Adolf Hitler

Other Roles

- Samuel L. Jackson as The Narrator

- Diane Kruger as Bridget von Hammersmark: A popular film star in Nazi Germany and a spy for the Allies.

- Julie Dreyfus as Francesca Mondino: Joseph Goebbel's mistress.

- Maggie Cheung as Madame Mimeux: A beautiful French woman who owns a cinema in Paris.

- Ludger Pistor as Wolfgang, a role Tarantino added specifically for him.

- Christian Berkel as Eric: The Barkeeper

- Jacky Ido as Marcel: Shosanna's beloved and a projectionist at Mimeux's cinema

- Denis Menochet as Perrier LaPadite

- Jana Pallaske as an unconfirmed character

- Enzo G. Castellari has said that Tarantino "wrote him a small part in the script." He has been seen walking around the set wearing a Nazi costume.

That's indeed a large cast. But I'm confident in Quentin Tarantino's ability to manage all the actors and produce an incredible movie. The Inglorious Basterds will be awesome!

Inglourious Basterds Poster

Here below a first teaser poster for Inglourious Basterds, Quentin Tarantino's latest movie:
(Click on the poster to enlarge it.)
Tarantino's fame must overshadow Brad Pitt's fame, because we see only his name on this teaser poster, or maybe that's because of Tarantino's ego? Joking! Actually the Inglourious Basterds teaser poster above is just a title treatment, hence the scarce details.

Official movie posters of Inglourious Basterds have been unveiled:

The New Film by Quentin Tarantino


Those gruesome posters are somewhat in contrast with the trailer of Inglourious Basterds: those Inglourious Basterds movie posters let us think that there could much more violence than expected. Is that a marketing trick from Quentin Tarantino?

A basterd's work is never done.

If Brad Pitt is a basterd then we are all basterds!

Inglourious Basterds Movie by Quentin Tarantino

Director Quentin Tarantino is helming Inglourious Basterds, an upcoming World War II movie based on a script he wrote. The story is inspired by Italian director Enzo Castellari's 1978 movie Inglorious Bastards: but Quentin Tarantino is bringing his magic touch to transform the whole thing in something new. The movie Inglourious Basterds is gathering a large cast besides Brad Pitt and Melanie Laurent.

The production team is striving to complete the movie in time for release at the Cannes Film Festival in May 2009, but the movie is slated for an official U.S. release on August 21, 2009.

Here below a first look at Brad Pitt as Lt. Aldo Raine aka "Aldo the Apache" in the movie Inglourious Basterds:
(Click on the picture to enlarge it.)
Plot - Synopsis:
"Inglourious Basterds begins in German-occupied France, where Shoshanna Dreyfus (Mélanie Laurent) witnesses the execution of her family at the hand of Nazi Colonel Hans Landa (Christoph Waltz). Shosanna narrowly escapes and flees to Paris, where she forges a new identity as the owner and operator of a cinema.
Elsewhere in Europe, Lieutenant Aldo Raine (Brad Pitt) organizes a group of Jewish soldiers to engage in targeted acts of retribution. Known to their enemy as "The Basterds," Raine's squad joins German actress and undercover agent Bridget Von Hammersmark (Diane Kruger) on a mission to take down the leaders of The Third Reich. Fates converge under a cinema marquee, where Shosanna is poised to carry out a revenge plan of her own..."

The film will be divided into five chapters:

- Chapter One: Once Upon a Time in Nazi Occupied France
- Chapter Two: Inglourious Basterds
- Chapter Three: German Night in Paris (filmed in "French New Wave Black and White")
- Chapter Four: Operation Kino (you may translate by Operation Movie Theater)
- Chapter Five: Revenge of the Giant Face

If you're wondering about the title's spelling (it should indeed be Inglorious Bastards): that's no mistake! Frolicsome Quentin Tarentino definitely chose to write it this way! Is it because Brad Pitt is playing as an illiterate lieutenant? Or maybe because Tarantino is dislexic and wants to poke fun of himself? Any guess? Do the misspellings in the title Inglourious Basterds bother you?
