We have a new promotional poster from Universal for Quentin Tarantino’s World War II exploitation flick, Inglourious Basterds. It looks like nothing more than an introduction to the look of the film, and I think we can safely expect the rest of the film’s major players such as Diane Kruger, Eli Roth, Samm Levine, etc., to get their own preview poster before the official one-sheet arrives.

As Tarantino’s first film since 2007’s Grindhouse segment, Deathproof, Basterds should provide an interesting reception at the box office. It remains to be seen if audiences are ready to accept Tarantino’s smart-mouthed, anti-hero take on the holocaust and Nazi atrocities.

Take a look at the poster and see what you think:

Of course, it’s not the first holocaust revenge fantasy to hit the screen, but it’s a safe bet it’ll pack more f-bombs than its predecessors.

Are you ready for this — or even looking forward to it?
