Inglourious Basterds Final Cut Will Run 1 Minute Longer Than Cannes Version

inglouriousbasterds-070809Those expecting a radically different version of Quentin Tarantino’s WWII epic Inglourious Basterds from what was shown at the Cannes Film Festival will be disappointed.  The final version of the film is just one minute longer than what was presented at Cannes.

“The movie is actually a minute longer, in running time, than it was in Cannes. It was 2:28, without end credits, and now it’s 2:29, or 2:32 with end credits,” he told DealMemo.

As to what’s been added, well if you read Anne Thompson’s piece from May, it’s exactly what she reported:

“I added a sequence between where Mike Myers and Michael Fassbender discuss Operation Kino [the plot to blow up a theater as Joseph Goebbels and other Nazi brass watch a film], and the shootout scene in the basement tavern La Louisiane. In Cannes, we went from one to the other. I’d shot another scene, right before that, where Fassbender meets The Basterds, before they go to La Louisiane. That’s back.”

Another scene was re-inserted, which Tarantino calls a “laugh-out-loud funny moment that introduces Goebbels’s French translator, and cuts to a scene where she and Hitler’s minister of propaganda are having raucous sex.”  Other than a few cuts here and there to amp up the pace, there are no major changes.
