I'd prefer an initial release that is quick to the market and has it presented as it was in the theaters. Probably would have to be two discs, so might as well throw a few special features on there like the rumored other trailers and missing reels.

Then separate 2 disc editions of each movie, with loads of special features and multiple commentaries.

The general consensus, as pasted together from Tarantino/Rodriguez interviews is:

Sometime later, there will be a first DVD release of the two movies -- not packaged as one, excluding retailer specials -- with some features. Tarantino's gets the trailers. The films will be presented as they were theatrically.

Then later there will be a set of SEs -- again not together -- with the films "digitally remastered" (no more pops, scratches and jumps and...at least ONE of the missing reels restored...). Hopefully this will be timed to co-incide with Machete on DVD (perhaps, if we're really lucky, also those Kill Bill SEs finally and perhaps FDTD anamorphic but that's just my own speculation).

Yeah, I look at Grindhouse as more of an anthology film like Creepshow or Twilight Zone: The Movie rather than consisting of separate films. If they're going to do an initial release and then another one later, I hope that at least the initial release will be the whole thing on one disc.

I agree with both scott1598 and Drexl. I would only buy Grindhouse. I have no interest in Planet Terror and Death Proff individually. I really enjoyed the Grindhouse experience but the movies seperately wouldn't do a thing for me.

First, I understand their thinking that "Grindhouse" is a recreation of a B-movie double bill in the theater and like any double feature, the films would get separate home video releases. Still, I don't agree with the idea of releasing the films "as is" (scratched up) and then re-released again as pristine special editions. To me, the scratches and such only work under the guise of the double bill they call "Grindhouse." To release them in such a state separately makes no sense other than a money grab. If you're going to release them individually, then make them finished films.

Well, due to box-office failure, will people know what the hell Planet Terror and Death Proof are when they're released seperately? Looks like the company's just gonna have to play it safe and release the theatrical cut first and then go for your mega-double dip.

I like this idea. Extended editions for the 2nd and 3rd disc. Wonder what the store exclusives will be...If there are any.

I agree, I just saw the film and feel the same way.

The way it's all set up in theaters, makes it not 'two movies', but one big gigantic film experiance. Which is what it's supposed to be. The fact that the two directors made 90 minute films instead of the originally planned 70 minute films. Is not the studios fault, the directors for getting carried away. Since it was planned as one big double feature tribute and not just 'separate' films.


We start with Dimension logo, a fake trailer, then the GRINDEHOUSE credit sequence which fades into Planet Terror,then more fake trailers,commercials for food/restaurants,then Death Proof,then one big credit sequence that credits both films and trailers.

I'd prefer it to stay that way,instead of being split up. At the very least, the first release should be "GRINDEHOUSE" and not the films separately. And I love the 'missing reels' and grimy scratchy burning spliced up print style. And would hate to see the film(s) all cleaned up and pretty looking. That would not be any fun at all.

It seems the majority of viewers loved one and hated the other, so it's a good idea to put them on separate DVD's.

Although ideally I'd like to have the complete Grindhouse feature, I'm fine with just having to buy Planet Terror. Death Proof was too long and boring to begin with that I can't imagine enjoying Tarantino's extended Cannes cut.

These would only be a rental anyway and Planet Terror is the only one worth watching again. No issues with a split for me.

That's not a bad idea, but I would prefer a single-disc release of Grindhouse as a whole, followed by a 3-disc set with each (extended) film on its own disc, along with the fake trailers, marketing materials, documentaries and other supplements on the third disc.

Here's hoping Rodriguez has a BBQ cooking lesson on there.

Yeah, I'd go for this and wouldn't mind double dipping. The two movies together with the trailers and everything kind of work together in a strange, cohesive way but as a fan of both directors I would love to see fleshed out editions focusing on their individual parts.

I'll take a 2-disk double feature set.

Disk 1: Machete trailer and Planet Terror plus PT bonus features.

Disk 2: rest of the trailers and Death Proof plus DP bonus features.

The movies are short enough to where there should be enough room for bonus material on each disk.

I wonder if QT/RR will add "From Dusk till Dawn", as part of the Grindhouse anthology?
that one also overdue for a new DVD release...

I thought I was crazy, but I noticed this too. The beginning had a lot of scraches and pops, but the last half looked very new. Anyone know why that is?

That sounds like a plan to me!

This was in today's Variety. It confirms 2 separate releases.


"Harvey Weinstein defended the decision to keep the two together Sunday, telling Daily Variety it was artistically the right move and that the movie will be a moneymaker thanks to its foreign sales as separate films and an upcoming DVD rollout, which also will release the films as two separate titles."
