Most of you were probably impatient like myself and watched the shaky-cam bootleg Entertainment Tonight version of the Inglourious Basterds teaser trailer. But you haven’t seen War, until you’ve seen it through the eyes… of Quentin Tarantino. That’s right, the full trailer has been released on Yahoo. No more having to listen to that annoying E.T. announcer do voice over while Nazis are being killed on screen. You can watch it embedded below. As always, please leave your thoughts in the comments below.

I don’t know what I was expecting, but its clear that this film was shot more traditionally. Notice the lack of moving camera shots. When I first saw this trailer, I was a bit underwhelmed with the lack of style. But I’m excited to see what a Quentin Tarantino WWII movie will be like. The grin that Eli Roth gives after Pitt’s character talks about skinning Nazis is beyond creepy. Some people have been complaining about Pitt’s voice/linereading, but it seems fine to me. This teaser doesn’t show enough and leaves you wanting more (like any good teaser should).
Watch the trailer in High Definition on Yahoo. Inglourious Basterds hits theaters on August 21st 2009.
