Movie Con II Preview: Inglourious Basterds

Tarantino's hotly anticipated new flic makes its way to us in this very special Movie Con II Preview. Set in war ravaged, Nazi-occupied France during WWII, US Lt. Aldo Raine (Pitt) has assembled a Jewish-American guerrilla unit charged with the sole task of murdering Nazis. Meanwhile, in Paris Shosanna Dreyfus, manager of a cinema, plots revenge for her murdered Jewish family. When it is decided that a new Nazi propaganda film's premier is to be in Dreyfus' cinema, the perfect opportunity to wipe out the Nazi top brass is seized upon by both murderous bands. With a show stealing performance from new-comer Christoph Waltz as SS Colonel Hans Landa, Basterds presents Tarantino's ever uncompromising, stylised and visceral dialogue on cinema.
