We finally have some footage from Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds in the form of a teaser trailer, and as with most of Tarantino’s stuff it looks cool, however it is a little underwhelming. Brad Pitt seems to be playing a few characters with accents recently, and this is just another one of them. It takes you out of the movie a little.
Anyhow, watch it below!
Inglourious Basterds begins in German-occupied France, where 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 soldiers to engage in targeted acts of retribution. 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 marquee, where Shosanna is poised to carry out a revenge plan of her own.
