Christmas Basterds News Ambush

So it’s almost christmas, you Inglourious Basterds out there, and this glourious year is coming to an end. I’ve been a bit slow in my news posting, so here’s another round-up of things that happened since the last one. This will be the last post before the new year probably, so make sure you follow us closely on Twitter ( as I will update that more regularly than the Frontpage here. Also join our Community and check out our Facebook group. Nothing beats nice chats with fellow Tarantino fans on a merry christmas evening with your computer on your lap under the christmas tree, right?

  • Cool things first! Via our friend Rama I hear that our man Quentin Tarantino spoke to Vulture mag about what might be coming next. That’s pretty exciting stuff. He sais he already wrote about 40 pages of a Basterds sequel, but that something smaller would be first, and in a totally different genre. That gets me excited because that’s something I really would like to see.
  • Some time ago Quentin (who received the London film critics’ highest honor recently) presented the achievement award at the Academy’s Governor’s awards show to legendary filmmaker Roger Corman, and you can now see Quentin’s marvellous speech at their website in two parts: One | Two
  • Not sure if I posted this already, but there are some clips form a director’s roundtable on this page, very interesting to watch: HERE and if you missed out on Monsieur Tarantino on Jay Leno’s show, click here to watch it on YouTube.
  • If you want to win the German translation of the Inglourious Basterds paperback screenplay, follow us on Twitter today, we’re giving away one copy (must be a resident of Germany or Austria to win)!
  • And if you’re looking for yet another manly christmas gift (a late one), Hell Ride is slowly conquering more DVD markets, so check it out.
  • Lastly, we want to point out that as a special christmas gift, we’re letting you know that in time for the new year, with a delay of about 3 years, we’ll be launching the internet’s yet only and premiere Robert Rodriguez news blog. Stay tuned! You can already follow on Twitter @RodriguezNews !
  • You got money or gift certificates for christmas? Our sister sites the SWDB and the GCDB have little shopping guides waiting for you: SWDB shopping list | Grindhouse shopping list
  • We’re working on filling our Basterds Bluray and DVD overview pages with all the information you need to decide which one to get, but feel free to send us emails if we’re missing information or a version/edition of the DVD or BluRay we haven’t listed.
