The Weinstein Company have decided that they would start 2009 by announcing when Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds will be released. The film starring Brad Pitt, Diane Kruger and Christoph Waltz will be released on August 21, 2009. This puts the movie up against Final Destination: Death Trip 3D and comedy The Goods: The Don Ready Story (therefore there will be no competition).
Pitt plays Lt. Aldo Raine, who leads a group of Jewish-American soldiers during WWII called ‘The Basterds’. For these men, their job is to track down and viciously murder Nazis in an attempt to provoke fear in the Third Reich.
