“That’s a Bingo!”
Uh, is this a comedy?
Wow. That looks absolutely horrible.
Not so subtle use of the typeface used in Pulp Fiction (wishful thinking on someone’s part). Has a similar plasticy look. Like an episode of Get Smart.
I’m not a Tarantino fan but it looks damn fun.
Meh. Looks OK. I just don’t see the non QT fanboys responding to the Grindhouse style trailer.
And frankly Mike Myers doing a cameo as Austin Powers’ father is going to turn more people off than on.
Tonally, this film still feels all over the place.
Basically this is just a super violent remake of “Top Secret” featuring Brad Pitt is doing an impression of Carey Grant doing an impression of Foghorn Leghorn.
It’s looking to be more and more fun with each new trailer, I loved the poke and headbutt back bit.
Weak, wack, corny.
I have loved Tarantino’s films from Reservoir Dogs on through Kill Bill 2. He’s a talented and clearly passionate filmmaker but from the looks of this trailer it may be that he’s just, well, over…
Brad Pitt’s accent sounds terrible (not sure what sort of accent it’s even supposed to be), and the dialogue they chose for this trailer make it seem more like it was written by some fourteen year old kid with no idea how people actually speak or at the least no ear for the rhythm or pacing that Tarantino’s dialogue usually has. Even the campiness of it just feels cheap and joyless. And the cinematography — yikes.
Okay so this is just a trailer, but in light of how badly off TWC is these days (couldn’t happen to a better guy than Harvey), I can’t imagine crowd’s flocking to see this dog, based on this trailer.
I can’t wait to see this movie. Still bummed we didn’t get it and I usally get over these things fairly quickly…
What’s with the spelling of basterd – poetic license? – one known as an illegitmate, always so known.
Is that Mike Meyers in the trailer? Why?!
It’s bad enough Tarantino gave that hack Roth a job.
Is that the guy from “The Office” ?
I’m really tired of Brad Pitt. He’s just like George Clooney… can we ban both of them from ever making movies again? ugh!
I can’t wait to see it. I read the script and the trailer doesn’t do it any justice. It looks like they are trying to market it as some sort of action comedy, but it has a lot more going for it than that.
I saw this at Cannes. It’s amazing. Don’t listen to the haters! Tarantino is back!
This is a joke right? This looks like one of the fake trailers from Tropic Thunder.
Brad Pitt channeling Foghorn Leghorn, Mike Meyers, and BJ Novack from The Office? Are you serious? Really? Way to kill an idea. What, was Webster unavailable? sheesh
i like it much better than the previous trailer. more spunky and hip. other one was just full of dialogue that wasn’t great.
Its official: this is the biggest misdirection in film marketing history. People are going to be PISSED when they see this movie. Hopefully it will make enough in its first weekend to get TWC out of its hole, because the drop-off is going to be brutal.
Many years on…
It looks like you were wrong.
But you’re used to that, right?
So tired of seeing the same ugly faces over and over again. And so tired of Quentin Tarantino’s obsessions being played over and over again. I’ve had bowel movements that were more exciting than this trailer. Dreadful.
I don’t know…I’m getting this sinking feeling from it. Doesn’t feel right. At best I’ll catch a matinee…if that.
Boring…so much for the hype.
Pitt is over the hills, just like Clooney and the likes. (they were never THAT good in the 1st place anyways)
Lets see how the B.O performance for this one shall we? I will be very surprise if the final gross reaches the 9 digits numbers. Opening 20M wknd and fizzles at around 50-60M. Overseas will recoup the cost tho’ but do we really care then ?
“Overseas will recoup the cost tho’ but do we really care then ?”
Yes, “we” do.
Pretty soon domestic will be irrelevant, much like your opinion.
OK, so they used cheap needle drop music in a trailer like this? Man they must be scrounging for change at this point. pathetic. it feels like a home video trailer. It’s amazing how bad trailers are getting. Absolutely no reason this trailer should be this bad. with that cast and enough action… whoever cut that and whoever approved it should be sent packing. gents… if you want to make money you have to spend it. otherwise don’t play in the big leagues.
