More and more media and acting types keep pouring into advance screenings of Quentin Tarantino’s “Inglourious Basterds.” It’s the must-see movie of the summer, apparently.

Last night, “X-Men” star Famke Janssen, her ex-husband director Tod Williams and his newish wife, Gretchen Mol, all made the showing, as well as hot actor Gael Garcia Bernal (pictured), Amy Irving, producer Ed Pressman, playwright and “Doubt” director John Patrick Shanley, ABC News vet Bob Jamieson, journalist Stanley Crouch, producer Jean Doumanian, fellow Fox escapee Bill McCuddy,’ famed New Yorker movie writer Lillian Ross, and Nielsen company’s own illustrious Gerry Byrne were in the audience.

“Basterds,” by the way, is tracking “through the roof.” This is lingo for “people want to see it.” And why not? It’s Tarantino’s best work since “Pulp Fiction.” And it’s full of hidden “Easter eggs” ‘ buried treasures of clues and hip references, even one to Tarantino’s own “Death Proof.”
