VIDEO: American Idol's Basterds Footage...

Yeah, I watched American Idol last night. However, it was for good reason. First, the contestants were doing songs from the movies. Hell, one of them even did personal favorite of mine, Falling Slowly, from the film, Once. Second, and most interesting, the mentor for the episode was a cinematic God of mine, Quentin Tarantino. Now, while the show sucked, they did show some interesting footage from Inglourious Basterds, and First Showing has the to-hot-for-tv version of that footage. Check it out HERE. I'll embed a copy when one is available, that actually fits here.

(UPDATE: I changed the blog layout, so here is the footage!)

During World War II, a group of Jewish-American soldiers known as "the Basterds" are chosen to spread fear throughout the Third Reich by scalping and brutally killing Nazis. The Basterds soon cross paths with a French-Jewish teenage girl who runs a movie theater in Paris that is targeted by soldiers.

Inglourious Basterds is both written and directed by the infamous Quentin Tarantino, of everything from Reservoir Dogs to Pulp Fiction to Kill Bill to Death Proof previously. The Weinstein Company and Universal have partnered to bring us Tarantino's WWII masterpiece in all of its brilliant glory. Inglourious Basterds will officially hit theaters worldwide on August 21st later this year after its world premiere at Cannes.

Go see something good!
