I wouldn't mind if the film was cut in two, but I would prefer a three-and-a-half hour movie.  I had no problem sitting through The Two Towers.  I wish it were another three hours LONGER.

Just because 97% of critics suffer from premature ejaculation doesn't mean they should spoil the fun for the rest of us.

from aicn...

Quentin unveiled a great surprise after a few more questions. Apparently Quentin loves the trailer that has been out for the last few months, but his original idea was to cut a trailer that plays up the revenge/spaghetti western aspect of the film. Miramax loved it, but said that it played only to the people that love Tarantino films, not to everyone else that isn't automatically coming to this film. Miramax is cutting the second trailer right now... But for those of you lucky enough to have that great indie theatre or revival house in your area you'll get something special.  

Theatres like the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema (150 or so theatres in the US) will be getting this specialty trailer that Quentin and Co premiered earlier today. It is cut like a classic western trailer. The voice-over begins "In El Paso, Texas..." We see the wedding chapel... we get a glimpse of Buford Pusser as the preacher... We see Madsen, Hannah, Vivica Fox and Lucy Lui as they walk to the church. FLASH on a very quick black and white picture of Uma Thurman's face beaten to a pulp. Very disturbing, very violent looking even in the quick flash that we saw.

Michael Parks (FROM DUSK TILL DAWN) pops up as another Texas Ranger... same one from DUSK? And observes the wedding crime scene. There's an exchange in Japanese between Uma and Sonny Chiba. The subtitles read, "I need Japanese steel." "Why do you need Japanese steel?" "I need to kill some vermin."  

A total Ennio Morricone-ish Spaghetti Western score underscores the whole trailer, including the Aeon Flux-like animated sequences in the trailer. There's an extension to the scene with Vivica Fox we saw in the first trailer. She's chopping veggies and says, "I guess it's too late to say sorry, isn't it?" Then we see an extended version of the knife fight in the kitchen.  

Michael Madsen's Bud appears in profile. He says, "That woman deserves her revenge..." More flashes of some really violent animation and some new pieces of the House of Blue Leaves sequence including a really nifty sword move from Uma where she does this low jump, flipping in mid-air, avoiding one of the Katos and sending a vicious slice to the mid-section. The shot of Madsen returns and he finishes his line. "...we deserve to die." The whole trailer feels like a '70s and earlier trailer, down to the over large quotation marks around the title at the end... it was only missing the quick post-footage "Rated GP."  

The trailer kicks so much ass, but I can totally understand why they're not releasing it in 3000 plus theatres. Most people would look at this trailer and have no idea what's going on. It's light on the action, high on the revenge. I personally think it's a great idea to have the ass-kicking, mass audience trailers out to the mainstream market and have a completely different trailer cut for the art house or revival audience.

well, thats quite a bit different from this,

Quote from: Conflicting Information
Both movies will be longer than 2 hours, making the final product over 5 hours long


so now, i'm a little more upset.  a 3 hour 10 min epic is not that long.  two 90 min movies is bullshit.

What's shitty is going back and forth between two threads over the same subject.

It's okay, we'll just call the threads "Kill Bill" Volume One And Volume Two.

I think what happened was modernage posted new info in keeping this thread about the movie in general and the other one just about the split.

It's also aggravating that there are two different time lengths.  So each one will definitely be about 90 minutes???

I don't think there's a difference in time lengths at all.  No matter how you add them up, they equal RIP OFF.
