Inglorious Basterds has a Release Date

Coming Soon.net is reporting that the new Quentin Tarantino film has a release date. Inglorious Basterds will be arriving in theaters around the nation on August 21, 2009. It is a date that cannot come to soon, although I have to wonder if it will hold up.

I am a fan of Tarantino's work and do not believe that he has made a bad film yet, I just wish he was a little bit more prolific. Of course, I guess I should not complain, it is quite likely that if he were more productive the overall quality of his films would go down.

In any case, his next film has a release date meaning the countdown can begin. It is a tale set during World War II. A group of Jewish soldiers stage acts of retribution against the Third Reich and their path eventually crosses paths with a woman who runs a movie theater.

This is one of those movies that I plan on avoiding much spoiler type information. I look forward to watching it unfold in its glory before me. I also hope not to be disappointed.

Tarantino has collected a cast that includes Brad Pitt, Diane Kruger, Eli Roth, Samm Levine, BJ Novak, Samuel L. Jackson. Mike Myers, Cloris Leachman, Maggie Cheung, and someone with the great name of Omar Doom.

I wonder if the date will hold as it seems to be an odd time to release a film that is sure to be highly anticipated as this. I suspect it may get pushed back a bit in order to garner more Oscar consideration.

In any case, I am really looking forward to this.
