Inglourious Basterds trailer explodes here

The first official trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s war epic Inglourious Basterds has been shoved online.

Starring Brad Pitt as Lt Aldo Raine, the leader of a group of Nazi-slaughtering soldiers aiming to boot the boot to Hitler’s lot, it’s filled with trademark QT touches.

So if you’re expecting a subtle meditation on how war changes people, look elsewhere.

We’re talking explosions, blood, guts and Pitt cranking out a Southern accent and plenty of vengeful swagger.

Lucky people headed to Cannes will see it there, but we’ll have to wait until August to check it out.
