Little bit surprised there seems to be no thread about the new Tarantino-movie, so let's open one  ;D

A few years have passed and now Quentin had the time to make his World War 2 movie. Plot seems to be:

"Two story lines... converge: One follows a group of prisoners-turned-soldiers whose mission is to take down a group of Nazis, and the other follows a young Jewish woman who seeks to avenge the death of her parents by this Nazi group." The US-Release Date is August 21 and I'm really looking forward to it, the actors involved are also pretty good, here a list (taken of wikipedia, so if it isn't correct it's wikis fault ;-)):

The Allies

The Basterds
Brad Pitt as Lt. Aldo Raine, an illiterate hillbilly from the mountains of Tennessee, who puts together a team of eight Jewish-American soldiers. He bears a rope burn on his neck, which will never be mentioned in the film (the script hints that he might have survived a lynching). One of the film´s main protagonists: the character has been described as "a voluble, freewheeling outlaw" similar to Jules Winnfield from Tarantino's Pulp Fiction.
Eli Roth as Sgt. Donnie Donowitz: "a baseball bat-swinging Nazi hunter". Known as "The Bear Jew" among Nazis. Some of them seem to believe that Donowitz is in fact, a vengeful golem. It is rumored that the role was originally conceived for Adam Sandler, who was in talks with Tarantino before declining due to schedule conflicts with the film Funny People.
B. J. Novak as PFC Utivich aka "The Little One"
Til Schweiger as Sgt. Hugo Stiglitz: A German-born psychopath recruited by Aldo Raine to kill Nazis.
Samm Levine as PFC Hirschberg
Omar Doom as PFC Ulmer
Michael Bacall as Zimmerman
Gedeon Burkhard as CPL. Wilhelm Wicki, an Austrian Jew
Paul Rust as an unnamed Basterd

The British
Michael Fassbender as Lt. Archie Hicox, a "snappy and handsome British Lieutenant" and movie buff. He is described in the script as a "young George Sanders type". One of the film´s main protagonists, albeit introduced later in the movie.
Mike Myers as Gen. Ed Fenech: A British "military mastermind" who provides a plot to kill Nazi leadership.
Rod Taylor as Winston Churchill, the then Prime Minister of the United Kingdom

The Jews (Occupied French)
Mélanie Laurent as Shoshanna Dreyfus: A young Jewish girl on the run. One of the film´s main protoganists.
Léa Seydoux as Young Shoshanna
Cloris Leachman as Mrs. Himmelstein

The Axis Powers

The Nazis
Christoph Waltz as Col. Hans Landa: A charming and sinister, pipe-smoking Nazi officer nicknamed the "Jew Hunter" in reference to his keen ability to locate Jews hiding throughout France. He is the primary antagonist of the film.
Daniel Brühl as Frederick Zoller, A German War Hero starring in Joseph Goebbels newest Propaganda Film
August Diehl as Major Deiter Hellstrom
Sönke Möhring as Private Butz
Richard Sammel as Sgt. Werner Rachtman
Sylvester Groth as Joseph Goebbels
Martin Wuttke as Adolf Hitler

Other Roles
Samuel L. Jackson as The Narrator
Diane Kruger as Bridget von Hammersmark, a well-known German actress working for the Allies.
Julie Dreyfus as Francesca Mondino: Joseph Goebbel's mistress.
Maggie Cheung as Madame Mimeux, a beautiful French woman who owns a cinema in Paris.
Ludger Pistor as Wolfgang, a role Tarantino added specifically for him.
Christian Berkel as Eric, the Barkeeper
Jacky Ido as Marcel, Shosanna´s beloved and a projectionist at Mimeux´s cinema
Denis Menochet as Perrier LaPadite
Jana Pallaske as an unconfirmed character
Enzo G. Castellari has said that Tarantino "wrote him a small part in the script.

Also found some pictures, enjoy:

The trailer looks cool and even if I'm no fan of Tarantino I'm really looking forward to this movie. ^_^

I don't like WW2 themed movies, so I'll pass on this one.
For me Tarantino movies aren't what they used to be anymore. First that crappy Death Proof and now this...
