As you may have heard - INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS is a hell of a lot of fun. We're so used to turning off our brains and enjoying big loud summer movies that it's nice to leave our brains on for once. Hyper-stylish, incredibly violent and funny in the truest Tarantino sense, INGLORIOUS BASTERDS will have you walking down the street cheering afterwards.

"May be the most fun you'll have at the movies this summer. - Lou Lemenick, NY Post

"A fairy tale about the infinite power of film, it boasts all [Tarantino's] swaggering trademarks: rapid-fire dialogue, gleeful violence, endless cultural references. But it's the sharp-eyed deliberation that makes the greatest impact." - Elizabeth Weitzman - NY Daily News

"Energetic, inventive, swaggering fun, a consummate Hollywood entertainment -- rich in fantasy and blithely amoral." - J. Hoberman, Village Voice

"Once upon a nazi-occupied France," Shosanna Dreyfus (Melanie 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 killing-squad joins forces with 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.

This is movie maniac Tarantino's ten-years-in-the-making tribute to Italian director Enzo Castellari's INGLORIOUS BASTARDS, and looks to serve up all possible goods in the name of violent, macho warfare, with Brad Pitt in the swastika-hatin' lead. Yo, Hitler...SIT ON IT!!!
