Grindhouse Split in the U.K.

The Weinstein Co. has announced that the Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriquez double feature Grindhouse will be released in the U.K. as two separate movies.

The move follows a similar plan already established for other non-US territories that the film will be shown at. Death Proof from Tarantino will premiere on September 21, with a premiere for Rodriquez’s Planet Terror set to follow sometime after, though no date has yet been set for it.

Because of a weak U.S. performance ($11.60M for its opening weekend, only $23.10M total gross thus far), the Weinstein Co. hopes reducing one of the negatives against it (the long 3hr+ running time) will spur box office receipts:
“Based on U.S. audience’s positive reactions to Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Death Proof’ and Robert Rodriguez’s ‘Planet Terror,’ combined with their resistance to the three-hour running time, we’ve revised our U.K. release plans to allow audiences the chance to see the films separately, like they will be shown in all international territories,” Weinstein said.

    this is ridiculous, titanic was 3 hours long get over it, i want to see them together and i want to see them now, today is the 1st june the day it was supposed to be released, should be watching it tonight and not god knows when! This is the kind of action that tempts audiences into piracy etc, wanting so desperately to see a film yet the makers do nothing but mess the public around changing release dates and grrr it just annoys me, sort it out!

    I was looking forward to this as one of the big cinema events of the summer. Not only did they push it back from the US release dates, now they are splitting the movies.

    To split the film is absolutely ridiculous and completely makes a mockery of what Tarantino and Rodriguez were trying to achieve. I have to say that I will not be going to the cinema to pay twice, as to line the movie companies pockets.

    What a joke

    I’ve waited from day one with excitement about this film and had planned to go to the cinema with a big group of friends to see it.
    For executives to literally ruin the entire film and the experience it was supposed to be is disgusting.
    There’s lots of “long” films that made millions at the box office such as lord of the rings etc and it just reflects how awful the film industry is when it comes to making money that they are prepared to rip apart people creativity.
    I bet if there was a 4 hour sequel to the Titanic that the studio heads would be right in there waving their cash in the air.
    Personally I’m appalled, angry and depressed that this can even happen.
    May the Executives of major studios all die in pain when the “big one” hits LA.
