War. What is it good for? Well, if you're Quentin Tarantino, it's excellent fodder for one of the most hotly anticipated movies of the year; Inglourious Basterds.
And thank goodness that Brad Pitt's bizarre 'tache at the BAFTAs in February wasn't a personal style choice, rather essential plumage for his role as Lt. Aldo Raine. He's one of a group of Jewish-American soldiers known as The Basterds, who are based in Nazi-occupied France during World War II. Given the task of spreading abject fear throughout the Third Reich by brutally maiming, murdering and scalping Nazis, the Basterds soon cross paths with a French-Jewish teenage girl who runs a cinema in Paris.
Also starring Diane Kruger, Eli Roth, BJ Novak and Mike Myers, Inglourious Basterds is released on August 27, 2009. If you can't wait that long, check out the awesome trailer right here, right now...
