One of the highlights of the recent "Hot Fuzztival" was a showing of Edgar's 'Don't' fake trailer from Grindhouse.
Now, for those that don't know, Grindhouse emulates 1970s exploitation double bills, with two 'feature presentations' by Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez plus several fake trailers ('Machete – he gets the women and kills the bad guys!' – what more do you need to know?) and ads.
It was released in the US in April, and didn't do particularly well commercially.
So in Europe, they're splitting it into two, releasing the films separately. And losing the trailers.
In the UK, the first one, Tarantino's Death Proof opens three days after its US DVD release.
Yeah, cutting the film into two and releasing the first bit after the US DVD release, that'll increase the UK audience. Yeah…
