When Grindhouse opened in theaters across the country on April 6th of 2007, it didn't fare too well at the box office. Some blamed the film's length, and when it arrived on DVD and Blu-ray, it was released as two separate films: Death Proof [2 Discs] [Special Edition] [Extended and Unrated] and Planet Terror [2 Discs] [Special Edition] [Extended and Unrated]. Absent from these releases were the faux-trailers that ran during the film's intended intermission.
If we're to believe a new Twitter update from Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World director Edgar Wright, the release of Grindhouse in its uncut form, with all of the faux-trailers, scratches, and blemishes intact, including Wright's own hilarious trailer for the thriller Don't, could be coming very shortly. Giving this short hint, here's what the director told his fans:
"So, get this, tomorrow I am doing a commentary on 'Don't'. Some of you will know what that means is finally happening."
While we don't have actual release date information, or any further details regarding the release of this DVD, we will keep you updated as information comes in.
