Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds was at one point just an idea for a project that he always said he’d do, but never quite seemed to get to. Then, suddenly, the project picked up steam and before we knew it, Inglourious Basterds was finished and premiering at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival. The marketing for Basterds has been in full speed for a few months now, with posters, images and trailers galore.
Today we have a new poster for Inglourious Basterds, along with the news that the soundtrack will go on sale close to the film’s theatrical release. But before we get onto the soundtrack info, take a look at the 14th poster for Inglourious Basterds (yep, there’s been that many). Is it just me, or does Brad Pitt look sort of… odd? Check it out:

The soundtracks to Tarantino’s movies are always the highlights – Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, Jackie Brown, Kill Bill Vol. 1 and 2 and Death Proof soundtracks (all of which I own) are just fantastic, and logically we shouldn’t expect anything less from the soundtrack to Inglourious Basterds.
The Basterds soundtrack has gotten a release date of August 18th this year, just three days before the film’s release. Although no track listing has been released officially yet, a lot of track list was leaked while the film was playing at Cannes (you can read the French-language version of the list here). We already know Ennio Morricone, David Bowie and 70s Brit pop band, The Arrows, are all included on the soundtrack. But just recently, Tarantino revealed he has added additional music cues to the movie, notably the main theme from the film Dark of the Sun.
Screen Rant will let you know when the official soundtrack listing gets released, but for now, how do you think the soundtrack is shaping up?
The Inglourious Basterds soundtrack is set to be released on August 18, 2009. The film itself will hit theaters three days later, on August 21st.
