They both mainly have new scenes added in. They sorta flesh out the story more.
I believe Death Proof had about 15-20 minutes put back in for the DVD and (based on no evidence whatsoever and pure speculation) I would imagine Planet Terror has about 10 minutes put back in.

It's speculation based on reading that both films were around the 90-95 minute mark for 'the full Grindhouse' when compared with their respective DVD running times.

Best line in Planet Terror. Earl McGraw "about as useless as a pecker on a Pope".
I never saw it, but I would venture to guess that it's longer and uncut.  Wink
I'm probably not going to get an answer anytime soon, but whatever.

My question is this: how exactly is 'Planet Terror' "Extended and Unrated"?
Supposedly there will be a limited cinema release of the full "Grindhouse" double bill in the UK!
On the Ten Minute Film School feature on the Planet Terror DVD, Robert Rodriguez does state that there will be a proper Grindhouse DVD coming out.
it might be a long time until we see the grindhouse double feature!  we still don't have the epic version of kill bill.
DVDWorldUSA.com have Planet Terror R1 in stock in case anyone's interested...
Woo!
A week ago tomorrow.
Dude, hae you posted my DooVDé yet?
And I've never heard of the slipcase like they have that I got at Best Buy for the Kill Bill movies.
Slipcase?
If anyone out there can get hold of one of those slipcases that you can fit both films into - I NEED one!! Please help!! Many thanks, VF...oh, I'm in Australia!!

Well like I said, I paid $5 more for this one. And for people without a whole bunch of money at the moment (like yours truly), yeah, the $5 would be kinda worth it. But I get your point.

I doubt any clerk would give me a discount like that anyways, they're not too bright here. I mean that as in, I'll explain the situation, and they'll be "Tarantini? Oh ok, so Plant Tear? We don't have that one in stock. Try the one downtown."

I'm just aggrivated because I paid the extra $5, thinking I would get it back for Planet Terror. You win some, you lose some, unfortunately, I always seem to be in the latter.

You could go plead your case and depending on the clerk you may get some kind of discount towards PT, but is doing all that and the time involved really worth $5? I was actually surprised to see the $5 coupon in the package to be honest since--unlike the regular edition--the Steelbooks do not explicitly say there is a coupon included.

Don't know about other retailers, but the Best Buy Steelbook version has a third disc, plus with either release there's a $5 off coupon for Planet Terror.

Ah, cool, thanks. It's Future Shop doing it up here, but they're essentially the same. Website is awful though, so it's impossible to know what the extras are (even for the regular edition.) Thanks, much appreciated.



Well I'm thoroughly pissed... There's no coupon with my DVD. Plus it semi-advertises four poster cards on the packaging (doesn't explicitly say they are included, but why would there be pictures of them?), and it's just empty on the inside.

Whatever, it's only $5, but it's the principle dammit... I paid $5 more for this one.

If I brought it back, saying it's supposed to have it (the coupon) in there, and show that the standard edition has it, do you think they'd give it to me? Or is it a lost cause and essentially another disadvantage of living in the glorious province that is Quebec?

And while joke/sarcastic answers are alwaus being spewed about lately, I'd really appreciate an actual answer, sooner rather than later. Thanks.
I could do it for you, Nic.  If you're interested, e-mail me and just mail franchise@ohmb.net with something in all caps.
Even though I hate QT movies I am curious about these...anyone fancy buying the Best Buy steelbook for me and I'll paypal them the money over?? (Seriously)

Anyone?

Just making sure: These releases are the EXTENDED VERSIONS right?
So... Anyone have an answer for me? (Non-sarcastic please, much appreciated.)
Saw QT on J Ross on Friday night... seems folk do not want double features any more, they just don't have the time and so the split.
Respect? Hm, I always thought it was just a group of over excited yanks whooping and hollering...like they always do?
:p

It's a sign of respect. Like staying after the credits to "acknowledge" the people who worked on the film.

and to whoever said "doesn't it defeat the purpose of a grindhouse?" no it doesn't because the grindhouse was usually AT the theater not at home. Wink

I agree.  I think it's a British thing.  Stiff upper lip and all that.  What what.

We saw the Death Proof one last night an a local premiere..
I though it was great! the whole room was packed and at the end all cheered and applaused Happy
Figured I'd resurrect this to ask my question.

Death Proof releases this Tuesday. I have decided that I am going to get it, and Planet Terror (when it comes out next month)

Now, I want to get the steelbook, but it's $5 more than the "standard edition" so far. Is there anything exclusive to the steelbook editions a la "The Departed" (postcards)? Or is it just $5 for the steelbook itself (which is a bloody ripoff because "Departed" and "300" cost the same no matter which edition it was)?
i saw those at the comic con verrrry cool
I know.. I'll wait for the double feature which WILL include the fake trailers as well !

I stumbled across the news of this release, here ya go...

Official GRINDHOUSE Page (Death Proof - 9/18; Planet Terror - 10/16) (FEATURES/COVERS)

Personally, I like both Steelbooks, but by releasing them seperately destroy the whole purpose of Grindhouse in the first place?!?!
