Pitt Looks Like A Total Basterd In Tarantino’s New Poster

Published 6 years ago by , Updated May 2nd, 2009 at 2:57 pm,

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?

Inglourious Basterds hits theaters August 21, 2009.

  1. I am definitly looking forward to this one. I am a big fan of Tarantino and he has assembled a pretty solid cast. I hope that this one is a lot of fun.

  2. Brad Pitt can’t act. What was tarantino thinking?

  3. As long as theirs some sort of warning or hint of a finger or toe that’s about to go through some pain beforehand i’m all for this movie. I mean i’m going to watch it regardless… but the warning would be nice for me…

  4. Does it look like Pitt’s character has a scar across his throat like somebody once tried to slit it with a knife at some point?

  5. I HATE Tarantino films. The guy is so pretentious and it comes through in his films. I have not seen ONE film of his that I liked. There is NO chance in HELL of me seeing this movie, although I do like Pitt.

  6. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Brad Pitt. I will be at this film on opening day in August! Quentin Tarentino is kind of creepy and arrogant, but he does make good films. I love the poster of Brad. He seems to have gotten better looking, smarter, wiser, and more interesting with age. Cant wait to see him and his beautiful baby-mamma Angelina Jolie at Cannes!!

  7. Brad Pitt is a great actor. If you have any question about that, just take a look at all the different types of roles he’s played. I refer anyone to LEGENDS OF THE FALL, FIGHT CLUB, BURN AFTER READING, OCEANS 11, BABEL, SNATCH,SE7EN, MR. & MRS. SMITH, JESSIE JAMES, TRUE ROMANCE,and of course, BENJAMIN BUTTON. When you take chances like that, you’re bound to loose a couple of times, but I admire his guts in taking a chance on different film characters. They are rarely a miss. I cant wait to see Inglorious Basterds.

  8. Quentin Tarantino makes AWSOME movies, and Brad Pitt is even MORE GORGEOUS with age and a scar around his neck! I cant wait for this movie to come out in the United States in August, and to beautiful Angie at Cannes! Brad Pitt is good at picking film projects. He never lets me down!

  9. Not to mention it probably would have also cut through his internal and external jugular veins and his right and left carotid arteries so he would have bled out in under two minutes regardless of pressure placed on these vessels to stop the bleeding.(how do you put pressure on both carotid arteries? Doing so would mean you would stop all blood flow to the brain and cause brain death anyway so if the laceration didn’t kill you the cure would…Just a dumb poster to me…

    His character survived a lynching, hence the noose scar. So take a chill pill.

  11. No interest at all. I know a great many people are excited about this flick, and I don’t understand for the life of me.

  12. Where do you buy “chill pills” dude? Supposed to be a realistic movie concept grounded in reality but it has already shown that it will require a lot of suspension of belief to make it work for me..I’ll pass…No Thanks!!

    Don’t like the poster or the movie concept of revenge and bloody disgusting visuals to sell a product that can’t make it with a good story…

    Don’t like it and it’s just an opinion.

  13. @greenknight – Seriously man if you are looking for a documentary on the Holocaust try the History channel. This has nothing to do with reality. I’m sure Tarantino is very upset about loses his credibility with you as a viewer based on nothing more than a picture. Do you also look at books and think to yourself “This title sucks and the artwork is poor. I refuse to read this ‘Gone with the Wind’ “.

    I like Tarantino, except Jackie Brown and Kill Bill 2, both were too slow for me and even Deathproof took too long to get going, and I like Kurt Russell films. I’m interested to see how BJ Novak does in this because I’ve only ever seen him in comedy and that’s all he’s ever written from what I can tell.

  14. The premise of this movie doesn’t interest me in the slightest. Its intentional misspelling in the title kind of makes it seem pretentious.

    Then again the only Tarantino movie I’ve ever watched in full was Kill Bill which was a great parody of martial arts films with some really great fight scenes.

  15. @greenknight – I was by no means trying to “show you”. Just find it kind of ignorant to judge an entire movie by the very first poster it puts out. You don’t like Tarantino there’s nothing wrong with that, I have already said I didn’t enjoy at least 2 of his films but that won’t stop me from seeing them.

    I like books too, but more of a Ted Dekker fan myself. His book to movie haven’t gone so well though. Thr3e was not very good, great book horrible movie and House was merely OK.

  16. @greenknight – You may be right in regards to Eli Roth and Tarantino. The Circle series , imho, is fantastic. They even turned it into a graphic novel that was very well done. The Showdown is another good one as is House. Frank Peretti wrote that with him, and I just happen to enjoy both authors.

  17. I agree withe an earlier comment. Pitt is a bad. Meet joe black, 7 years in Tibet, Troy, the mexican, th devils own to name a few. even his “good” performances aren’t great or believable enough to call him a consistently good actor.
