That lucky basterd over at the Tarantino Archives managed to snag a visit to the set of Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds. In doing so, he acquired some exclusive imagery from the upcoming film. On the left, the likeness of Diane Kruger appears as Bridget von Hammersmarck, “A Tarantinoesque version of Marlene Dietrich, a femme fatale of sorts, a beautiful celebrity and also… a spy.” Then, actor Daniel Brühl appears in promotional materials for Stolz der Nation, the film-within-a-film directed by Eli Motherfucking Roth. More details come from the Tarantino Archives as well:
As you may know, the movie reverts in part around the premiere of a Nazi propaganda film called Stolz der Nation (Pride of the Nation), which stars Fredrick Zoller, a German sniper, played by Daniel Brühl. This movie within the movie was of directed by Eli Roth, who pulled all sorts of filmmaking tricks on this little movie. Some of the Youtube videos that leaked late last year were from that set. He told the Tarantino Archives that it would be a “totally over the top” propaganda film. The art department pulled a real hat trick and produced a whole series of posters, lobby cards and program invitations for this, many of which can be seen in the movie.
Currently, Inglourious Basterds is in the midst of its final filming leg, so I suppose it’s just gonna turn into Nazi porn world around here real soon. In other words, it’ll be more of what you’re already used to, mates.
