When it comes to posters, there have been some pretty bad ones released lately, from poor photoshopping to a complete lack of creativity, they have all been less than decent. But finally, a poster has come along for a film that looks to be a little more than decent. I’m talking about the new Italian poster for Quentin Tarantino’s Iglorious Basterds.
For those not aware, Basterds is about a group of Jewish-American soldiers during World War II known as “The Basterds”, led by Lt. Aldo Raine (Brad Pitt), who are chosen specifically to spread fear throughout the Third Reich by scalping and brutally killing Nazis. The Basterds soon cross paths with a French-Jewish teenage girl who runs a movie theater in Paris which is targeted by the soldiers.
The poster shows off Pitt doing his “nat-zee scalp hunting” face, along with Eli Roth (left), Christoph Waltz (right) and Diane Kruger (top). We’ve already seen a few clips from the film and heard about the astounding reaction from Cannes, now we have a cool-looking poster to hold us over until the film’s release on August 21.
Check out the larger sized poster after the jump.
