A faux trailer has been released for Nation’s Pride, which is the movie-within-the-movie from Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming WWII revenge flick, Inglourious Basterds. Directed by Eli Roth (Hostel, Cabin Fever), Nation’s Pride tells the story of German War hero, Fredrick Zoller (played by Daniel Brühl). Within Basterds universe, the faux film serves as the propaganda tool of Joseph Goebbels’ (Hitler’s Minister of Propaganda).
Those who have seen Inglourious Basterds already say that Nation’s Pride can be seen scattered throughout the film. It seems a bit late in the game for The Weinstein’s to be releasing viral marketing trailers, since it’s so close to the release date of Basterds. When they worked with Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez on Grindhouse (which flopped, by the way), they released all sorts of marketing stuff months before the film hit theaters.
While it might be hard to fully appreciate Nation’s Pride out of context, it’s a cool thing to watch nonetheless. Check it out:
