The second official trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds has just been released and it’s bloodier than ever! The film focuses on a group of Jewish-American soldiers under the command of Lt. Aldo Raine (Brad Pitt), who exact revenge on the Nazi regime during it’s occupation of WWII France. Basterds is written and directed by Tarantino, and is produced by the Weinstein Company.

So far Inglourious Basterds has been on the receiving end of some mixed reviews. It’s also been criticized by it’s own studio and producers over it’s length. The film’s estimated run time clocks in at 2 hours and 40 minutes, and insiders are saying that Tarantino is being pressed to drop the extra 40. I guess we’ll find out whether or not that happens when the film debuts in theaters on August 21.
