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 French-Jewish teenage girl who runs a movie theater in Paris that is targeted 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. Inglourious Basterds will officially hit theaters worldwide on August 21st later this year after its world premiere at Cannes.
