As you can probably see, I’ve started the process of redesigning the look of this website. Nearly everything is complete, but you’ll still run into the old design on some of the pages as I continue to try and integrate everything.
If you see anything that looks screwey or that you don’t like, please leave a comment to this post about it. Make sure to include what browser you are using if its a rendering issue.
The Japanese teaser trailer for Volume 2 is up at the official Japanese website (where else). There isn’t much too this teaser – just The Bride walking thru the desert, reflected in a samauri sword with the phrase “Kill Is Love” hovering in the corner.
Uma Thurman has been nominated for a Golden Globe Award (Best Actress-Drama) for her work in Kill Bill.
Digital Producer has a pretty long interview up with Tarantino that focuses much more on the technical aspects of Kill Bill – camera work, editing, directoral decisions.
Just to preface this – this film has been rumored for years, and Madsen seems to be its biggest supporter, so this could just be wishful thinking.
Once upon a time there was going to be a Vega Brothers movie and then as time went by Quentin decided that it was impossible. John and I are like 10 years older and so we couldn’t really make a prequel.
How could we make a story about two guys who before they are both killed were 10 years older.
So he told a big crowd of people in San Diego that there wasn’t going to be a Vega Brothers movie, but then he went off to Mexico for a couple of days and he called me right when he came back from there to tell me that he had came up with an idea and a concept that would make the characters work and I can’t tell you what it is but I can tell you that it is definitely back on his mind and I do think there is going to be a Vega Brothers movie.
Both of these have been available from the official Miramax store for about 2 weeks, but they are about half the price if you buy them at All Posters. Click on either of the posters below to go to All Posters and see a larger version.
Maxim Movies has a good sized article about the 2nd installment of Kill Bill, but only a little bit of it is online. I’ll try and pick up the magazine this weekend and get some of the info in it posted here.
Not suprisingly, its the Mr. Blonde ear slicing scene, made all the more creepy by the use of the Stealers Wheel song ‘Stuck in the Middle With You’.
Not really a suprise considering how popular it is, but the Kill Bill Soundtrack got nominated for a Grammy in the ‘Compilation Soundtrack Album for a Motion Picture, Television or Other Video Media’ category. I’d say the Chicago Soundtrack is probably the favorite. Here’s the other nominees:
Gangs of New York
Kill Bill — Vol. 1
A Mighty Wind
School of Rock
