Grindhouse DVD releases split
In the comments for the Filmstalker article about the Grindhouse UK release being stopped, Hap told us that the DVD release for Grindhouse was to be split as well as the cinema release. Not only did he provide us with a link to the story, but the very next day it popped up through another news source.
Unfortunately Teletext, the news source in question doesn't provide a source for their story, but they do say that U.S. DVD release is going its separate ways, that means Death Proof on the 18th of September and Planet Terror on the 16th of October as different DVD's.
What this means is that the Weinstein's are trying to make their money back from the failed cinema release by selling off the two films individually. My advice is not to bother buying these and hold off. We're bound to see a restored single version in the future, this is common practice galore to see a Special Edition DVD release.
Don't waste your money, save it for a Special Edition.
