Out of fairness to Quentin, Harv, and the whole Basterds gang working so hard to bring you all the Nazi-scalping excellence you deserve, we bring you now the official HD Basterds trailer.

Right away, we found the absence of Mark Steines going, "Ooooh! This looks scaaaary! I HATE Nazis! Scalping? Is that like a dandruff thing? OMIGOD WHAT'S HE GONNA DO WITH THAT BASEBALL BAT?!" enhanced the tension so woefully missing from the ET preview. The blood-splat title cards were a nice touch, and the generic thrashmetal soundtrack (didn't they use the same music in 9?) neither hurts nor hinders the cause, though deserves points for slightly drowning out Pitt's accent. Thankfully, the critical Hitler line, "Nein, nein, nein, nein!" is still intact, a natural element around which TWC can start building their "Why So Serious?"-esque marketing campaign.
