Grindhouse comes to the UK
The UK has already seen Death Proof (Filmstalker review) released but not the sister film Planet Terror hasn't, and the full film spectacular, Grindhouse, wasn't even going to get a breath of fresh air. Until now.
Edgar Wright is going to present a special screening of the film in London's Prince Charles cinema in Leicester Square, and it's also showing at the Glasgow Film Festival.
Now I'm not sure if this means that we're going to see a full UK release just yet, but I caught this story somewhere other than The Hollywood News the other day – my apologies I can't remember where, I'm sure someone can point me in that direction – and it said that a limited release of the complete Grindhouse was coming in the UK.
However the release would be to few selected cinemas who wanted to carry the film. That could be good news for those in Edinburgh as the local Cameo cinema often carries such smaller release films. Elsewhere I'm not so sure.
I do hope we get to see a UK release, it's not only the fact that the two films are together but it's the fake trailers as well, the whole Grindhouse experience.
