Forget what those negative nancies that penned negative reviews about Quentin Tarantino‘s Inglourious Basterds after seeing at the Cannes Film Festival have said. Slap yourself in the face if you’re a film snob (or wannabe snob) who enjoys bringing Tarantino down a notch simply because it makes you look like a rebel (without a clue, mind you). And don’t mind my bias towards Tarantino’s name, earned by consistently wowing me with his filmography.
Inglourious Basterds is going to kick ass, overly-dialogue-heavy or not. Yes, I’ve convinced myself as much. Wanna fight about it?
This new, louder, faster, nuttier trailer goes down like a Berry-Cherry Vitamin Water on a hot summer’s afternoon. Everything I love about the script is represented in some shape or form, big reveal or missable tease. The image from the page that lept out the strongest into my mind and has remained since is seen here, though I won’t divulge which it is, in fear that it’d spoil way too much if I blabbed. Much less stone-faced than the first trailer, this one is guaranteed to jack you up for the Basterds, even if the headbanger music is a bit hokey and the film itself isn’t as nonstop action as this may lead you to believe.
Watch it, love it, or just continue to condemn this project for making Brad Pitt look and sound goofy, and for turning World War II into some R-rated comic book come to life. You’ll be a lame if you do so, but that’s the way your sour cookie crumbles, then. [New, awesome Inglourious Basterds trailer, after the jump]:
