Cannes Is Overrun With Inglourious Basterds

By: Celebuzz / May 20, 2009

What Quentin Tarantino‘s new film Inglourious Basterds lacks in proper spelling, it more than makes up for with star power.

The World War II epic about a group of bounty hunters who track down and brutally kill Nazis had its premiere at the 62nd International Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday, drawing everyone and his brother—along with the world’s favorite vampire.

Stars Brad Pitt (along with his babymama Angelina Jolie), Diane Kruger and Melanie Laurent were on hand, along with Sharon Stone, Paris Hilton and Doug Reinhardt, Emile Hirsch, Joshua Jackson, Dita Von Teese, Joss Stone and—last, but totally not least—Robert Pattinson.

According to The Insider, the film’s debut was met with an 11-minute standing ovation. No wonder Tarantino felt compelled to bust out the dance moves on the red carpet.
