Japanese Basterds

Inglourious Basterds has finally hit Japan, and it hit hard. Here are a few pictures from the premiere. Click here also for posters. The film premiered in the capital Tokyo with Quentin Tarantino, Melanie Laurent, Julie Dreyfus and a raggedy-bearded Brad Pitt in attendance. According to Boxofficemojo.com, the movie has made quite an enormous amount of box-office box internationally, yet their tally of numbers seems far from complete. The Weinstein Company and Universal Pictures are rolling out the movie on home video already in early December to harness the powers of christmas shopping and to make the movie widely available for Academy Award judges and stakeholders.

Update: Here are a few more pictures.
