From the most original and beloved screenwriter of his generation, the complete Oscar-nominated screenplay of Quentin Tarantino’s World War II epic Inglorious Basterds. From the brilliant writer/director behind the iconic films Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill, and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, comes Tarantino’s most ambitious movie: a World War II epic starring Brad Pitt and filmed on location in Germany and France. The action tale follows the parallel story of a guerrilla-like squad of American soldiers called “The Basterds” and the French Jewish teenage girl Shosanna who find themselves behind enemy Nazi lines during the German occupation. When the Inglourious Basterds encounter Shosanna at a propaganda screening at the movie house she runs, they conspire to launch an unexpected plot to end the war. Pitt plays Lieutenant Aldo Raine — the leader of the Basterds. Raine is an illiterate hillbilly from the mountains of Tennessee who puts together a team of eight Jewish-American soldiers to hunt down the Nazis. Filled with Tarantino’s trademark electric dialogue and thrilling action sequences, Inglourious Basterds is one of the most celebrated films of the twenty-first century.

Academy Award-winning screenwriter Quentin Tarantino returns with his most infamous, most brilliant, most masterful screenplay yet… At the end of the Civil War, a stagecoach hurtles through the wintry Wyoming landscape. Bounty hunter John Ruth and his fugitive captive Daisy Domergue race toward the town of Red Rock, where Ruth will bring Domergue to justice. Along the road, they encounter Major Marquis Warren, a former Union soldier turned infamous bounty hunter; and Chris Mannix, a renegade who claims to be the town’s new sheriff. Lost in a blizzard, Ruth, Domergue, Warren, and Mannix seek refuge at Minnie’s Haberdashery, a stagecoach stopover. When they arrive, they are greeted by four unfamiliar faces: Bob, who takes care of Minnie’s in the owner’s absence; Oswaldo Mobray, the hangman of Red Rock; cow-puncher Joe Gage; and Confederate general Sanford Smithers. As the storm overtakes the mountainside, our eight travelers come to learn they may not make it to Red Rock after all … THE HATEFUL EIGHT is a Tarantino master class in tension-filled atmosphere, singular characters, and razor-sharp dialogue.

True Romance, directed by Tony Scott, is a hilarious, twisted road movie about which Interview raved, “A pop-crazy, instant B classic with A clout.” Alabama, a hooker, and Clarence, a comic-book store clerk, fall in love and hit the road in a purple Cadillac. They are going to Los Angeles to start a new life — with a suitcase full of cocaine accidentally stolen from Alabama’s defunct ex-pimp. Guided by the spirit of Elvis, Clarence attempts to sell the coke to a top Hollywood director, putting the young lovers in the middle of a standoff between the narcs and the Sicilian gangsters who rightfully own the cocaine. This publication of Tarantino’s first screenplay, written when he was still a video-store clerk, contains the original ending and Tarantino’s “answers first, questions later” structure, both of which were altered by Scott.

Oscar Award-winning writer/director and Django creator Quentin Tarantino teams with Eisner Award-winning comic book creator Matt Wagner to write the official Django Unchained sequel, uniting the gun-blazing Western hero with the legendary swordsman of literature, film, and comics: Zorro! Set several years after the events of Django Unchained, Django again pursues evil men in his role as a bounty hunter. Taking to the roads of the American Southwest, he encounters the aged and sophisticated Diego de la Vega by sheer chance. Django is fascinated by this unusual character, the first wealthy white man he’s met who seems totally unconcerned with the color of his skin… and who can hold his own in a fight. Django hires on as Diego’s bodyguard, and is soon drawn into a fight to free the local indigenous people from brutal servitude. Learning much from the older man (as he did from King Schultz), he discovers that slavery isn’t exclusive to his people, as he even dons the mask of Zorro in their mission of mercy!

Starring Samuel L. Jackson, John Travolta and Uma Thurman, Pulp Fiction exploded on to the screen in 1994 and transformed the direction of contemporary cinema. Nominated for seven Oscars and winner of the BAFTA award, this triplet of masterfully interwoven crime stories is witty, gritty and shamelessly violent, displaying Tarantino’s visceral approach to character and plot. Tarantino has spawned a whole host of wannabes in the wake of this, the defining movie of the 1990s. But none has demonstrated the elegant style and compassion that make Tarantino’s screenplays so compellingly readable. Nominated for seven Oscars, Pulp Fiction starred John Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Willis and Uma Thurman and won the US Oscar for Best Screenplay, the BAFTA and the prestigious Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival. Quentin Tarantino’s other films include Reservoir Dogs, Jackie Brown, From Dusk Till Dawn and most recently, Inglorious Basterds and Django Unchained.
