Full Details for "Death Proof" DVD

Death Proof DVD

Genius Products and The Weinstein Company have sent us the full specifications for the two-disc special edition of Quentin Tarantino's Death Proof, coming out September 18th, 2007. Death Proof, the second half of the retro double feature Grindhouse, follows a creepy stunt driver whose taste for stalking lovely young ladies gets him into big trouble when he tangles with the wrong gang of badass babes. Their confrontation escalates to an extended mano-a-mano car chase with one of the girls strapped to the hood of a thundering Dodge Challenger.

The set will feature:

  • The Unrated Extended cut, with nearly thirty minutes of additional footage (including the "missing reel")
  • Three Dolby 5.1 soundtracks: English, French, and Italian
  • English and Spanish subtitles
  • "Finding Quentin's Gals" featurette
  • "The Guys of Death Proof" featurette
  • "Kurt Russell as Stuntman Mike" featurette
  • "Introducing Zoe Bell" featurette
  • "Quentin's Greatest Collaborator: Editor Sally Menke" featurette
  • Double Dare fake trailer
  • International Poster gallery

Suggested retail price for Death Proof is set at $29.95, so expect to pay between $22 and $27 dollars at retail (preorder from Amazon.com).

I'm definitely holding out for the complete Grindhouse on this one. I can see why they split the movies--most people didn't care for Death Proof--but Grindhouse is supposed to be about the complete grindhouse double-bill with hilariously bad trailers experience. The least they could have done is put all the trailers on each DVD.

I agree

I agree that we should be getting a complete Grindhouse set (preferably with four discs). I'm not sure I'm going to be able to hold out on Planet Terror, however. I really loved that half.

"He went for a little walk! You should have seen his face!"

Don't forget the extra

Don't forget the extra revenue they'll get by doing this initial split release, too. While it may seem cynical to say that it's solely a money-making measure, they have a lot of revenue to make up, given Grindhouse's poor box office performance. I, sadly, will probably be feeding into this money making machine, given I'm one of the few folks who actually honestly enjoyed 'Death Proof'.
