Bleh. Doesn't seem like anything special. Has a History of violence feel to it, only without the good.

It's based on a great Elmore Leonard novel, so if the script does the book any justice I'm there. Tarantino bought the rights to four Leonard novels at the same time, saving "Rum Punch" to direct for himself (with a title change to "Jackie Brown").

It looks like the Weinstein Co. is distributing it. IMDb is showing a May release date.

So this movie will have been delayed nearly 2 years by the time it comes out, never a good sign.

Updated trailer link:

Though I haven't seen Killshot, the fact that the Weinsteins are involved in distributing it should really make any connections between the delays and its quality null and void. They've purchased the rights to numerous good, great and fantastic films only to inexplicably bury them for months or even years at a time. Any time there's a film festival, I cringe when they're mentioned in conjunction with the purchase of a picture...

November 7th now, though I wouldn't be surprised if they delay it again to try and cash-in on Mickey Rourke's potential oscar nom.

I was hoping this would kick ass, instead I have no confidence in it.

I was trying to find the Killshot thread but no luck.

Re: Killshot

Someone in that Wrestler thread said they thought the Brothers Weinstein might be waiting for an Oscar win to expand, but 5 theaters in AZ sounds like a contractual obligation run to me.

Re: Killshot

I guess the film made an estimated $10,060 ($2,012 per screen avg) for the three days.

I saw a sneak preview about a year and a half ago, back when they were still contemplating a theatrical release. The version I saw didn't have Johnny Knoxville.

I actually thought it was pretty good. It's a lot darker than what most people would think of as a typical Elmore Leonard flick (Get Shorty, Jackie Brown).

Re: Killshot

Well the Knoxville scenes were cut awhile ago so you don't have to worry about them....
Hopefully they atleast include them on the DVD as deleted scenes....

Re: Killshot

Bourne has forever ruined DVD covers. (I'm sure it didn't originate the look but damn if it wasn't the first time I noticed it, and its onslaught of clones).

Re: Killshot

This movie hits DVD today. Very mediocre reviews.

It's coming to me on Netflix, and should be here tomorrow.

Re: Killshot

^Same here. Mine shipped from Netflix today as well. I dont even know what cut of the movie is on the disk. I read the DVDtalk review but I dont think that was made clear. IS johnny KNoxville in this version? Rosario Dawson? Rosario Dawson nudity?
In any case I hope its one of the longer versions of the film and not the 80 minute version.
Ths has such a good cast and I rad the book a few years ago and thought it looked good so I hope for good things. The DVD sounds pretty terrible though. TWC and Genius usually put out good DVD's even for stuff like Fanboys and Outlander but this was given the shaft. John Madden usually does commentary tacks and wonder why he didnt do one for this release. Its not like he didnt have 3 or 4 years to record one LOL.
