An early announcement to retailers indicates that, confirming earlier rumors, Vivendi Visual Entertainment is set to release the Weinstein Company production Grindhouse on a Special Edition Blu-ray on October 5 (perfect for a Halloween viewing party with friends). No release details are available at this moment, other than it will be a two-disc edition .
My question is, will it include the "clean version" of "Planet Terror" as included on its separate blu-ray release (which I was preparing to purchase).
I suspect it does not. Or how about the added scenes in "Death Proof"? Hmm.
October is going to be this year's version of Christmas from the looks of it. This, Psycho, Alien Anthology, Back To The Future. If this is just the initial releases being rereleased I'll be disappointed. Am I seeing things or is this now $13.99?
I saw Grindhouse in theatres with my wife (she dug Death Proof), bought the movies on DVD, then got them again on Blu-ray. And now, the theatrical release of Grindhouse on blu-ray is FINALLY being released in October??? I knew it was worth the wait. I mean, after all, three years wasn't that long... was it?
I don't care how much it costs. I'm picking it up the minute it's on the shelf.
