Here's the press release from TWC annoucing a war movie that has the potential to be THE GREATEST WAR FLICK OF ALL TIME!.. too much? Have I already over-hyped? Sorry, here's the info ...
December 31, 2008 – The Weinstein Company (TWC) and Universal Pictures announced today that Academy Award-winning director Quentin Tarantino’s World War II epic, Inglourious Basterds, starring Brad Pitt, will open domestically August 21, 2009. The announcement was made by Harvey Weinstein, co-chairman of TWC and David Linde, co-chairman of Universal Pictures who are partners in the film. TWC and Universal are co-financing and co-presenting the film with TWC handling domestic distribution and Universal handling international distribution. International release dates will be announced shortly.
Can you believe it? That's a typo in my title, Tarantino is spelling Basterds with an "e."
As we reported yesterday, Watchmen is still on schedule to open in theaters (and IMAX) on March 6, despite the court case between Fox and Warner Bros. Now myspace.com has a brand new, behind-the-scenes featurette to keep fans salivating until then. Zack Synder talks about the original graphic novel from Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons, as well as casting decisions.
