Around two weeks before "Inglourious Basterds" opens wide in theaters, The Weinstein Company has presented the epic movie to selected audience through its Los Angeles premiere. On Monday, August 10, red carpet was rolled down in front of the Grauman's Chinese Theater in Hollywood to greet those attending the special screening.

Many of the cast members were spotted joining director Quentin Tarantino and producer Lawrence Bender for the special event. Brad Pitt, Diane Kruger, Melanie Laurent, Michael Fassbender, Samuel L. Jackson, Christoph Waltz, B.J. Novak and Eli Roth were only some of them. Pitt who takes the role of Lieutenant Aldo Raine didn't come alone. He was accompanied by his longtime partner, actress Angelina Jolie.

Though glittered by the star-studded cast ensemble, the premiere also saw many other celebrity guests from the legendary actor Sidney Poitier to comedienne Sarah Silverman to extreme sport athlete Tony Hawk. Filmmaker Brett Ratner and actresses Carla Gugino, Jessica Lowndes and Christina Ricci, were among them as well.

"Inglourious Basterds" is an ensemble war film set in Nazi-occupied France. It begins when Shosanna Dreyfus witnesses the execution of her family at the hand of Nazi Colonel Hans Landa. Narrowly escaping the brutal murder, Shosanna flees to Paris, changes her identity and plans a revenge.

Elsewhere, Lieutenant Aldo Raine assembles a group of Jewish soldiers known as The Basterds to take down the leaders of The Third Reich. This World War II film will be debuted in theaters across the U.S. on August 21.

Who wants to go see a movie where the director can't spell "bastards" correctly?

Not one good review for this thing at all, and do you blame the reviewers? Anti-American, racist, dumb, gore-infested, an incapable lie of society that never happened and never could. What causes anyone to make such biologically, socially and culturally impossible, inept and fictitious crap? LSD? KGB? It must be. What a mess and what a money loser. I'm glad I didn't invest in this nonsense. It has lost so much money, it's ridiculous!! 8O
