Another new Inglourious Basterds poster. I’m liking these retro style posters.
Thanks to Fabien for the heads up.
UPDATE: This poster actually originates from Tarantino.info. They have a few more up here – go take a look.
Quentin Tarantino versus Sylvester Stallone is being called,
“The Gunfight at the Has-Been Corral”
They are basically talking about Stallone’s The Expendables versus QT’s Inglourious Basterds. Yikes. This is one of the harshest mainstream press articles I’ve ever seen about Quentin. Get a load of this.
Tarantino’s insistence on making his film became something of a joke. A journalist for The Irish Times quipped: “Inglorious Bastards, a war movie that may eventually resemble The irty Dozen merged with Cross of Iron, has been predicted more often than the second coming of the Lord.”
The film is finally in production, with a cast that includes Brad Pitt and Samuel L Jackson, but already there are ructions because Tarantino wants to make it into two three-hour movies. After the Grindhouse fiasco, however, he is facing strong studio opposition.
Since I still get a few emails a week asking about it – QT is still promising to deliver on Kill Bill – The Whole Bloody Affair. I’m not holding my breath.
Another violent crime in Europe, another comparison to Tarantino.
“They pointed a stun gun at a waiter and demanded the cash from the till, but the staff grabbed kitchen knives and charged at the men,” a customer in the busy restaurant said. “It was like a moment from Tarantino’s ‘Kill Bill‘ films.
Note: This is a continuation of a theme I noticed some time ago.
