Grind House Double Bill Coming To The UK After All?

There's a lot of talk about cinema releases these days being little more than loss-leading promotions for the DVD and in January, fingers crossed, we'll see a very happy example of this.

Momentum, the UK distributor of Death Proof and Planet Terror are planning on some new year engagements of the Grind House double bill, showcasing the shorter cuts and the full set of fake trailers, as per the initial US release. The only reason this won't happen is if the Weinstein side of the deal won't be haggled down to a less prohibitive asking price.

I can see Momentum coming out on top in these negotiations, however, so I'm pretty confident that the Werewolf Women of the SS and the merry monstrosities of Don't will get their shining moment on British silver screens.

I'd keep an eye on the Prince Charles Cinema as one likely venue, if I were you...

More on this as and when it bubbles up - and you can lend your support in the comments below to give Momentum the extra encouragement to keep bargaining.
