With Quentin Tarantino’s new movie “Inglourious Basterds” set to invade theaters August 21st, the Weinstein Company has released 9 movie clips and about 10 minutes of behind the scenes footage from when they were filming the movie. If you want to be spoiler free, this is not the article for you. But if you’re looking for a taste of the new Tarantino movie right now, you’ve come to the right place.
I saw a screening yesterday and have to say…it’s great. The film takes tons of surprising left and right turns, and if you’re a cinefile, there are tons of movie references you’ll appreciate. But with this being a Tarantino movie, would you expect anything less? Also, while all the performances were top notch, Christoph Waltz as Col. Hans Landa is a whole other level. You’ll see what I mean in a few weeks. Until then, watch the clips after the jump:
And one thing before getting to the clips:
I’m going to try something new with this film clips article. Due to Collider running pre-roll before all the videos you have to watch (it pays for all the bandwidth we use), I’m going to post all 9 movie clips we were provided for Quentin Tarantino’s “Inglourious Basterds” in one video. What that means is, once you push play, you’ll probably have to sit through one pre-roll and then all nine clips will play one after each other. Also, I’ve left the titles in before each clip plays, so you’ll know what they are called as you’re watching them.
And if you’re looking for behind the scenes footage of when they were filming, a bit further down is the B-Roll. Take a look:
Here’s the synopsis:
In the first year of the German occupation of France, Shosanna Dreyfus (Mélanie Laurent) witnesses the execution of her family at the hand of Nazi Colonel Hans Landa (Christoph Waltz). Shosanna narrowly escapes and flees to Paris where she forges a new identity as the owner and operator of a cinema.
Elsewhere in Europe, Lieutenant Aldo Raine (Brad Pitt) organizes a group of Jewish American soldiers to perform swift, shocking acts of retribution. Later known to their enemy as “the basterds,” Raine’s squad joins German actress and undercover agent Bridget von Hammersmark (Diane Kruger) on a mission to take down the leaders of the Third Reich. Fates converge under a cinema marquis, where Shosanna is poised to carry out a revenge plan of her own….
Employing pulp and propaganda in equal measure, Quentin Tarantino’s INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS weaves together the infamous, oppressed, real and larger-than-life stories of WWII.
