Last week, Screen Rant reported on the second full trailer for the upcoming Quentin Tarantino film, Inglourious Basterds, and it was excellent.
That teaser emphasized the style of the film and revealed a brief outline of what the film’s plot may lead up to. Today’s international trailer does much more of the same and is just as good.
Inglourious Basterds (intentionally misspelled) is the long-awaited Quentin Tarantino project set during World War II in Nazi-occupied France about a group of Jewish-American soldiers (the “Basterds”) selected to terrorize Nazis throughout the Third Reich. If you've not seen any footage from the movie as of yet, this trailer will quickly give you an idea of what the movie's all about.
Watch and see what you think:

Mike Myers’ character, General Ed Fenech, really stands out in this one with a lot of screen time and I find it a little hard to buy into his character. It feels too much like some of his Austin Powers personalities from the short bits we see here but it is a little funny and maybe that’s the point. I just hope I don’t get pulled out of the film too much because of him.
The other accent that’s still not settling well with me is Brad Pitt’s. Is it just me, or does it seem that he’s impersonating too much? It doesn’t sound right to me and I’ll have to get used to that.
I’m excited for this film and I think it’ll be one of the best of the year. I’m never disappointed by Tarantino’s work and I don’t expect to be with this one either. I'll even go as far as to say that I'm already looking forward to the prequel that's being discussed already.
Is this a movie you’ll be looking out for later this summer?
Inglourious Basterds opens August 21, 2009 and I’ll be there.
