Basterds gets date!

12.31.2008

We all kinda knew that Quentin Tarantino's INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS would premiere at the Cannes Film Festival next year (seeing as how he boldly proclaimed that before filming even started), but we were never sure when the rest of us would get to see it. Now we know. The Weinstein Co. and Universal Pictures have announced an August 21st release date for the film. It's a surprising date for a couple reasons: 1) If they were going for summer, why go for such a late date? Why not something with a higher profile?, and 2) If you're positioning this for Oscar success, why not later in the fall when it'll be more fresh in Oscar voters minds? Kinda strange but then again I've given up trying to predict what the Weinsteins are going to do with their schedule (ZACK AND MIRI on Halloween??). TWC is handling the domestic distribution of the film while Uni is taking on international territories (an international date hasn't been set yet). Now I wonder when we'll get ourselves a first glimpse of the film through trailer?

excellent

Pulp Fiction was more than the script. I don't know about you, but I can't wait for the performances we get in this one.

I'm just fucking relieved to get a release date for this thing. Late August really doesn't seem like a terrible idea to me. Look at what it did for Tropic Thunder: most of the studios dump their shitty movies at the end of the summer, but the good ones really stick out. Plus it'll be nice to have something to look forward to after the glut of blockbusters.

I read the script

and it's pretty good. I don't think that it'll live up to Pulp Fiction status but its like Resovoir Dogs meets Kill Bill. It'll be badass

I'm looking forward to this movie, but like Balboa6, I'm more excited for THE EXPENDABLES. When is that being released??

I'm sure it'll be good and everything, but personally I'm far more excited about The Expendables.

Wow. I'm pretty sure QT's attempt at being clever(?) with the title is just going to make people dumber. If the movie is wildly successful it'll probably end up in future dictionaries as an 'alternate spelling.' Evolution of language be damned.

Basterds

Aug 21! Amazing!!! That's pretty quick turnaround seeing as they're still filming. I like the 'botched' spelling... probably a good reason for it too.

Ehh...I dunno about this. Isn't late August reserved for crap like Disaster Movie? I'm still anticipating this but I'm a little worried about what the date will do for its box office or if it is a sign of the quality.

Damn that's a long wait!

And should we ever be surprised about The Weinsteins and dates? I still can't forget that stupid choice to release Grindhouse on Easter weekend.
