‘Inglourious Basterds’ defies summer wisdom

Tuesday, Aug 25, 2009

During a season when studios have become all but convinced that audiences are losing interest in big-name movie stars and R-rated adult fare, perhaps it was appropriate that the end of summer would offer a surprise hit that embodied both those qualities.

“Inglourious Basterds,” featuring Brad Pitt among an ensemble cast, earned $38 million at the box office this weekend in the U.S. and Canada, according to domestic distributor Weinstein Co., far exceeding expectations by drawing a fairly diverse audience without alienating director Quentin Tarantino’s core fan base of men in their 20s and early 30s.

The same occurred overseas, where Universal Pictures opened the film in 22 territories, including Germany, France, Britain and Australia, to a strong $27.5 million.

It’s not the only movie this summer to open significantly stronger than pre-release polling had indicated. That list includes Warner Bros.’ June release “The Hangover” and last weekend’s “District 9” from Sony Pictures. But “Inglourious Basterds” certainly had the most at stake — around $70 million in production spending split between Weinstein Co., which hasn’t had a major release since December’s “The Reader,” and Universal, which has had a string of box-office underperformers this summer, including “Land of the Lost” and “Funny People.”

The opening weekend numbers provided an unexpected ending to a months-long marketing campaign. Since the movie premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in May to a mixed response, speculation has run rampant in Hollywood as to whether the movie would resemble Tarantino’s 1994 breakout hit “Pulp Fiction,” which earned $108 million domestically, or his 1997 follow-up “Jackie Brown,” which grossed under $40 million.

Quentin Tarantino: Brad Pitt Is My Robert Redford

Friday, Aug 21, 2009

This one’s for Brad.

“For a long time I’ve thought, ‘One of these days I hope I can write a character that would be terrific for Brad Pitt and we can have a collaboration that will be like a Babe Ruth home run.’ So as I was writing the character of the leader of the Inglourious Basterds, I was like, ‘OK, this is the one for Brad.’ But then I started getting nervous. I was like, ‘What if he doesn’t like it, what am I gonna do?’ I sent him the script and we had a meeting and, after a long night of talking a about movies and a few bottles of wine, he was ready to sign on.”

Why he hearts Brad.

“Brad is a wonderful actor, but what I also got was a terrific movie star at the zenith of his iconic status. We’ve been around about the same amount of time as far as the business is concerned — he came out with Thelma and Louise in ’91, I came out with Reservoir Dogs in ’92 – and I’ve loved watching him do his thing over the years. There were moments when I was framing him up in the view finder, that I was like, ‘God, I feel I’m experiencing what Sydney Pollack must have felt shooting Jeremiah Johnson and looking at Robert Redford. Brad has that same quality that just shines through on camera. He’s just the man right now.

Pitt, Tarantino alter WWII history with `Basterds’

Wednesday, May 20, 2009

Quentin Tarantino and Brad Pitt have spun some revisionist history on how World War II ended. Their war saga “Inglourious Basterds” premiered Wednesday at the Cannes Film Festival, presenting a band of Jewish Allied soldiers led by Pitt who play a pivotal role in taking down the Third Reich with a strategic strike against the top Nazi brass. “It was definitely outrageous, which I’m always game for,” Pitt said of Tarantino’s rewrite of the history books. The band’s exploits culminate in a bloodbath at the premiere of a Nazi propaganda film in Paris as Pitt’s commandos exact savage revenge for Adolf Hitler’s genocide against the Jews.
