Inglourious Basterds Teaser Trailer12.02.09 # Trailers # 3 Comments
The Inglourious Basterds teaser trailer has arrived, giving us our first look at the performances and tone of Tarantino’s WWII adventure story.
The first striking thing is that Eli Roth (director of Cabin Fever & Hostel) seems to have a huge acting part in this, as he’s forefront of every scene that flashes past. Mike Myers, by contrast, is nowhere to be seen.
Brad Pitt looks like he’s having fun and, well, does the scene with Hitler at the end not remind you of a Mel Brooks film? Is that a good thing?
My main issue with Quentin Tarantino is a simple one – when he’s off the boil his scenes always run a minute longer than they need to. In the case of Death Proof it was about 5 minutes longer than they needed to. How excited you are for this will depend on what you thought of Death Proof. Personally that’s when I jumped off the Tarantino train.
