Also, although I see nothing mentioned on the web anywhere, I just saw a new TV spot for Kill Bill Volume 2. Hopefully, something will appear online shortly.
UPDATE: The TV spot for Kill Bill Volume 2 can be seen here.
Just got an email from Dan letting me know that the official Warner Brothers press release for the Kill Bill 2 soundtrack has been posted:
Kill Bill Vol. 2, the highly anticipated follow-up to Quentin Tarantino’s box office hit Kill Bill Vol. 1, is set to hit U.K. cinemas nationwide on April 23rd. The soundtrack for Kill Bill Vol.2 will be released in the U.K. on April 19th on Maverick Records/WEA and will feature new cutting edge tracks from Johnny Cash, Malcolm McLaren, and Wu-Tang Clan.
After a hugely successful movie debut last October, Kill Bill Vol.1, which featured a range of classic tracks from Nancy Sinatra’s “Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)” to RZA’s “Ode to Oren Ishii”, the soundtrack was a sell out success in the U.K, debuting at Number 1 on the UK soundtrack chart and selling over 120,000 copies.
The soundtrack for Kill Bill Vol. 2 is set to carry on this success, with classic tracks from the multi-platinum selling Wu Tang Clan, the ‘God of Modern Movie’ music Ennio Morricone (“Il Tramonto”, “A Silhouette Of Doom”) and the rockability kitsch of Charlie Feathers (“Can’t Hardly Stand It”).
They also have a 1417 x 1417 version of the cover that would make a good desktop background with some cropping. You’ll also notice that the CD cover for the UK soundtrack in this press release has a slightly different cover than the US version posted her previously.
You can buy the Volume 2 soundtrack here.
There’s a brand new Thai Kill Bill poster available at AllPosters. I’ll assume that the actual poster isn’t as out of focus as the image they have up of it.
Not suprisingly, he likes it.
“The content, even the style, are very different. It’s not the juggernaut of fighting that the first one was, although there’s a lot of hot action in it. Everyone talks a lot — what people are used to with Quentin.’
“The heart of the movie is the stuff between me and Uma — wonderful stuff. I just saw the finished picture, and it’s beyond my expectations,’ adds Carradine of the feature opening April 16. “The second one is, I think, a better picture than the first.’
MSNBC also has a longer article about Carradine.
“Bill is more fun than anything,” Carradine said. “Bill has virtually no human problems. He
Kill Bill Volume I was nominated for a Saturn Award in the Best Action/Adventure/Thriller Film. Also nominated is Uma Thurman for Best Actress, Sonny Chiba for Best Supporting Actor and Lucy Liu for Best Supporting Actress. Quentin was also nominated for Best Director, and Best Writing.
AllPosters.com now has the official Kill Bill Volume 2 teaser poster up for sale.
From reader Joey:
Just thought you’d like to know that as I was checking out www.ComingSoon.net tonight, I noticed they added a link to a “new japanese trailer” for “…Volume 2″. Although I wouldn’t get too excited since there really isn’t anything “new”. It actually looks somewhat like a fan-created-trailer. Most of the footage is from Volume 1, and from the Volume 2 trailer…and additional V2 footage found in early Volume 1 trailers. There’s one new scene with a panoramic shot of The Bride driving on the road, but who’s to say it’s from the movie.
I actually like this trailer just fine. It keeps with the ‘Kill Is Love’ theme from the Japanese poster.
We’ve finally got a tracklist and cover art for the Kill Bill Volume 2 Soundtrack:
1 A FEW WORDS FROM THE BRIDE Uma Thurman
2 GOODNIGHT MOON Shivaree
3 IL TRAMONTO Ennio Morricone
4 CAN’T HARDLY STAND IT Charlie Feathers
