Kill Bill Volume 2

We already know that Kill Bill Volume I is being released on October 10, 2003, but Miramax said today the Kill Bill Volume II is being released on February 20, 2004.

At least it's not going to be a six month wait like Miramax first said.

well at least, hopefully both volumes will be on the same dvd (or to save bit space, put each volume on a seperate disc.

Generally I'd agree, if Volume I is great, I won't want to wait for a set that includes both Volume I and Volume II.

anyone know for sure if this is R rated, and that no cuts (or significant cuts) had to be made to give this an R

Screw Miramax, greedy bastards!!! Most of all for creating a 5 month gap between volumes 1 and 2.

well I don't know if it would really burn them. The same people who would have seen a full Kill Bill, probably at least 90% of them will still see the first half, so Miramax will still get their money no matter if the first one sucks.

Although they still might take a slight hit by distributing a film that no one sees. But I really doubt that'll be the case.

Besides, I know TONS of people were disappointed with Reloaded, but most people are still going to see Revolutions.

So, meh.

Well, it's 133 days, right? I figure a "month" to be about 30.4372916666666666666666666666667 days. (That is, if we take a month to be one-twelfth of a solar year, which it isn't.) That comes to 4.36963976481700764550065366635049 months. Roughly.

I'm with you on that. Tell me why Miramax couldn't release it as one film. Oh yes, I forgot--it's because Harvey Weinstein is a money hungry producer who couldn't give a flying **** about his viewing audience. He only cares about getting his goddamn Oscar, which is one reason he is releasing Vol 2 next year: so that both films don't split the vote at the Oscars(if they're even nominated).

Interesting. From what I've read, Weinstein has been very open about the fact that he expects to lose money doing it this way, but he doesn't care, because he wants to do right by Tarantino.

A February release date for Vol. II (as opposed to say, a December one) tells me that Miramax is pretty happy with both films and expects part one to be in theaters at least through the Christmas holiday.

I heard that the damn thing was going to be incredibly long so they split it up in consideration for the viewer.. And honestly, i appreciate it. I typically only watch 1-2 movies a month at the theaters anyways so this is no big deal for me. I am, however hoping for one big dvd release so I don't feel like i'm spending too much money on that too

This doesn't really bother me. Apparently the movie is extremely long and long action movie's don't do well. No one wants to sit for three hours for a kung-fu masterpiece or what not... Not to mention, it gives me time to see the first a couple times..-shrugs-

Personally, I rather have them release each volume seperate on DVD and I expect them to.

this movie will be eligible twice if nominated. due to oscar rules, a movie must be in at least dec 31 to be consitered for oscar consiteration. since pt 2 will be released in feb, that means that part one and two could be nominated or win both years,.

I heard that the film was originally going to be four hours+ long and instead of splitting it into two flicks, QT decided he'd rather cut an hour out and make it three hours long instead, and that they (QT and Miramax) were going to release a three hour movie after they cut the hour out. And now, even after the cut, they are going to release it as two films. As long as the DVD release is both parts, I don't care that much.

Somebody wake me when the DVD comes out. Yeah, Weinstein is probably right, at least as far as I'm concerned... This went from a must see at the theater to I'll just buy the DVD(s)... I'm not going twice to see the same film.

i've been looking forward to this film for quite some time now...and when I heard it would be released as 2 films, I got a little upset. However, after thinking about it and reading about it, I feel that QT is just trying to re-invent cinema and bring new concepts to american cinema. This sort of thing has been done in france before, so I believe QT is just trying to bring a new level to his films...and not weinstein wanting to cash in...even though he is a greedy bastard. Just like with the 10 minute anime sequence in kill bill...i hate anime, but i feel in good hands with QT doing it...call me a sucker, but i'm really excited!!!

How is it the same film? I guess it's the same film in the way that each Lord of the Rings movie is the same film...

It's from one script, intended to be one film. Now, it's been cut in two because some dipstick thinks that I lack the attention required to sit through a 3 hour movie. Or rather, that the profits can be doubled by asking me to sit through two 1 1/2 hour films... No thanks. Stick it.

I fail to see how this has anything to do with LOTR... A planned series of movies, not an 11 hour film that has been cut to maximize ticket sales. How would you feel about Return Of The King Part 1, clocking in at 90 minutes, followed in June by Return Of The King Part 2?

Yeah, that's why I won't read the Lord of the Ring books, Tolkien wrote it as one book, but it got cut into three! Sure, I'm missing out on great literature, but that's ok.

I suppose I see your point. LOTR maybe isn't the best example.
But Jackson originally pitched LOTR as two movies, but still...
How about Back to the Future II & III?
That's a better example. Filmed simultaneously, relased a few months apart.
Same deal, right?
How about Godfather, Part II? Half of that movie was stuff from the orignial novel, The Godfather.
What a rip-off!
