It's hard to believe, but after the thriller's Cannes Film Festival debut last month, Quentin Tarantino's "Inglourious Basterds" is only two months away from opening here in the U.S.  There has been scuttlebutt that Tarantino will edit the movie after its so-so reaction from critics at the festival, but in the meantime the film's marketing campaign is starting to move into high gear.

The Weinstein Company debuted a new poster today for the movie focusing solely on the film's most bankable star, Brad Pitt.  A safe bet for commercial prospects stateside, but a more intriguing Italian poster featuring more of the cast also made it's way online. You can check both out below.

"Inglourious Basterds" opens nationwide on August 21.
