Brad Pitt, Inglourious Basterds

François Duhamel

The Basterds are coming.

Quentin Tarantino's Brad Pitt-starring, spell-check-eschewing, controversial WWII-era epic Inglourious Basterds has received a release date courtesy of distributor The Weinstein Co., with the Nazi-hunting drama set to open Aug. 21.

The film, Tarantino's first solo directorial effort in more than four years, went into production in Germany back in October.

In addition to Pitt, Diane Kruger, B.J. Novak, Mike Myers and the Rose Queen herself, Cloris Leachman star in the film, which follows a band of Jewish-American soldiers as they hunt down and gorily dispatch their German counterparts in France.

If that doesn't scream summer blockbuster, nothing does.
