Inglourious Basterds Trailer!

Update: Here's the official trailer. That means longer and better quality.

The first teaser for Quentin Tarantino's new movie, Inglourious Basterds [sic], aired on Entertainment Tonight. Thanks to youtube, we can take a look:

It's hard to think of three more disparate movie elements than Tarantino, Brad Pitt, and World War II. It only gets weirder when Mike Myers and BJ Novak (The Office's Ryan) are thrown into the mix. But at least in the trailer, it seems to be working. The Tarantino dialogue is still there, but doesn't seem out of place. Brad Pitt is actually acting, so maybe we'll get something more Twelve Monkeys than Benjamin Button. Basterds looks like the movie Valkyrie should have been - a campy action movie about taking down Nazis. I'm definitely excited, but is everyone else ready to forgive Tarantino for Death Proof?
