About the Movie

Inglourious Basterds is a 2009 war film written and directed by Quentin Tarantino and starring Brad Pitt, Christoph Waltz, Eli Roth, Diane Kruger and Mélanie Laurent. The film tells the story of two plots to assassinate the Nazi Germany political leadership, one planned by a young French Jewish cinema proprietor (Laurent), and the other by a team of Jewish Allied soldiers led by Lieutenant Aldo Raine (Pitt).

Development on Inglourious Basterds began in 1998, when Tarantino wrote the script for the film. Tarantino struggled with the ending and chose to hold off filming and moved on to direct the two-part movie Kill Bill. After directing a part of the 2007 film, Grindhouse, Tarantino returned to work on Inglourious Basterds. The film went into production in October 2008 and was filmed in Germany with a production budget of $70 million. Inglourious Basterds premiered on May 20, 2009 at the 62nd Cannes Film Festival, where it competed for the prestigious Palme d’Or. It was widely released in theaters in the United States and Europe in August 2009 by The Weinstein Company and Universal Studios.

The film was successful at the box office, grossing $320,351,773 in theaters worldwide, making it Tarantino’s highest-grossing film to date. It has received multiple awards and nominations, including eight Academy Award nominations. For his portrayal of Hans Landa, Christoph Waltz won the Best Actor Award at the Cannes Film Festival, the BAFTA Award and the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor.
