Inglourious Basterds Trailer Hits the Web

For those eagerly anticipating Quentin Tarantino’s blood-soaked World War II revenge flick, Inglourious Basterds, Yahoo! Movies has premiered its teaser trailer.

The trailer doesn’t give all that much away, aside from hints of gruesome, stylized violence and glimpses of the ragtag band of Jewish-American soldiers who, behind enemy lines, go on a Nazi killing spree. The trailer also features an impassioned speech by their commanding officer, Lt. Aldo Raine, played by a mustachioed Brad Pitt.

“We are going to be doing one thing and one thing only: Killing Nazis,” he tells his troops. "We will be cruel to the German. And through our cruelty they will know who we are. They will find the evidence of our cruelty in the disemboweled, dismembered and disfigured bodies of their brothers we leave behind us." Bring the kids!

Inglourious Basterds is scheduled to hit U.S. theaters on August 21.

The WWII genre has been lacking movies about scalping Nazis... I can't wait!
