What’s new in Inglourious Basterds 4K release?

Inglourious Basterds (4K Ultra HD + Blu-ray)Just when Universal Pictures thought they couldn’t top their Special Blu-ray edition of Tarantinos’ Inglourious Basterds, they are tweaking their 4K release. Between this and an exclusive to HMV (UK), there’s also a Cine edition.

This region specific release includes:

  • Slipcase with Spot Gloss finish
  • 36-Page Photo booklet
  • 4 x Art Cards
  • 8 x Character Cards

It’s been twelve years since the release of the special edition, and this film is worth revisiting since it helped make Christoph Waltz the star. He plays Nazi Colonel Hans Landa, a ruthless interrogator whom Lieutenant Aldo “The Apache” Raine (Brad Pitt) and his team are after. Well, sort of. There’s actually two plots by different organizations trying to do away with the leadership as the war continues on. It’s tough to decide who is worse, and that’s part of the joy of why this film is considered quintessential Tarantino. 

The bonus material includes:

  • Extended & Alternate Scenes (Three in all)
  • Roundtable Discussion 
  • The New York Times Talk *new
  • Nation’s Pride
  • The Making of Nation’s Pride
  • The Original Inglorious Bastards 
  • A Conversation with Rod Taylor

  • Quentin Tarantino’s Camera Angel
