I'm a documented fan of Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds, but I also think folks should be prepared for a film that is less about Brad Pitt and more about dialogue and lesser-known European actors. This new trailer for the film does a better job of illustrating that, but it's still way off. Instead, you actually see 98% of Pitt and company's presence in the film. There's little left that isn't in this trailer. The rest of the film is Melanie Laurent and Christoph Waltz (who appear briefly in this preview). Anyway, here's the new trailer. Again, it's a film I like, but this isn't exactly the film you're signing up for:

    This trailer has got me pumped for the lot more insight in to how the actual film is going to be than the first one - I couldn’t be more excited. The fact that you say it doesn't feature as much Brad Pitt is even more news to my ears, as his whole Brad Pitt-ness sometimes gets to be too much (ala Tom Cruise in Valkyrie).

    I think the so far polarizing reviews have come from the fact that its becoming 'cool' to hate on Tarantino films...too many critics just wants him to be the indie film underdog, and now that he's big they all wanna tear him down.

    I also thought it was great that they used “Comin Home” by Murder By Death in the second half of this trailer. It has this modern punk Johnny Cash vibe to it that really sets the mood for some Spaghetti-western style violence…hope its featured in the actual film, too.
