What kind of stuff would you like to see on the eventual super-deluxe Kill Bill Volume 1&2 edition (one of them, anyway)? Not sure if I would want Volumes 1 & 2 on seperate discs, or a slightly re-edited version of both volumes on one disc. Here's what I would want on the definitive Kill Bill DVD set (I could probably come up with some more stuff too):

-Japanese version of Volume 1 with additional gore, full-color Crazy 88 battle (maybe with the B&W version on a seperate angle), and a dedication to Kinji Fukasaku

-Great big trailer galleries for movies with David Carradine, Sonny Chiba, and Gordon Liu (I loved the Robert Forster and Pam Grier trailers on the second disc of the Jackie Brown set, I could just watch those all day. I'd love to see something similar on the bonus disc for the Kill Bill set.) For me, that alone would probably be worth the price of the set

-International trailer gallery with some beautiful Japanese posters (most movie posters these days are just crap, [if I ever get to make a real movie, I'm going to hire someone to do a beautiful 70s-style hand-painted poster for it], all of the Kill Bill posters I've seen stand out in some way)

-Interviews and commentaries from all of the major people, Tarantino, Thurman, Carradine, Chiba, Hannah, Gordon Liu, Michael Parks, Michael Madsen, Chiaki Kuriyama, cinematographer Robert Richardson, score composers RZA and Robert Rodriguez, production designers David Wasco and Yohei Taneda, martial arts adviser Yuen Woo-Ping, the KNB special effects team, the costume designers, etc.

-production and concept art gallery featuring artwork by Sharkskin Man and Peach Hip Girl director Katsuhito Ishii

-Interview with Tarantino & Thurman on the conception and development of the idea for Kill Bill

-isolated music and sound effects tracks

-ample "making-of" docs, including one covering V1's anime scene

-the screenplay available as a DVD-ROM feature

-trivia subtitle tracks like the Pulp Fiction and Jackie Brown special editions have

-documentaries about the many influences on Kill Bill (70s kung fu, spaghetti westerns, samurai movies, exploitation and horror cinema of the 70s, etc)

-Deleted scenes (if there are very many other than the one on the current V2 disc), alternate takes, and a blooper reel

-Footage from premieres of V1 & V2 (hopefully including the Tokyo premiere of V1)

Of course, I wouldn't hold my breath for the first combined Vol 1&2 release (there will probably be several) to be anything near that cool since this is Miramax we're talking about, but one can dream.

All of that would make for a pretty cool set! What I'd most like to see is how Tarantino would have edited the two movies as one film.

I have a feeling there are a lot of deleted scenes, I'd love to see as many of these as I could get.

I'd love a Tarantino commentary track also, but I don't think he does them for his own movies. The only one he's done that I know of, is the one for True Romance. (Which he wrote)

FROM DUSK TIL DAWN. The two-disc version, at least.

I would too, but I wonder how well it could fit on one disc, since both parts edited together would probably be about 4 hrs (a little shorter if you removed Vol. 1's end credits and a few other things). Maybe in a couple of years when we have those Blu-Ray discs or something else.

> I have a feeling there are a lot of deleted scenes, I'd love to see as many of these as I could get.

I have a feeling that there was probably more stuff with Bill and Beatrix in China that didn't make it into Vol. 2. In the current version, there really isn't a good place to put the Damoe fight scene, but there may have been if the China flashback had been a bit longer. I liked seeing that scene on the Vol. 2 DVD, it's pretty much the only time that we really get to see Bill in action (unless you count the anime sequence).

Rumor has it that in addition to current DVD releases of Kill Bill Vols. 1 and 2, Miramax is expected to release a Special Edition of each film, to be followed by an ultimate Collector's Edition. Among other things, I doubt there will be a separate music track, ColonelKong, but many of your wishes might come true though you'll have to buy all of the DVDs to make the package complete.

Oh yeah, I'm sure that Miramax is going to milk it for all it's worth. Some of the extras in my "dream" Kill Bill DVD set I could probably live without, like an isolated music track, but I really would like to see at least some of my ideas for extras to be used.

ColonelKong, you can always write to QT and personally harass him via his blog site, QT's Diary, though we haven't yet determined if it's for real or a put-on...

If it is a fake, whoever did it did his homework, but it seems a little dubious to me (I thought I had heard that QT didn't own a computer). I did get a pretty good laugh out of the angry email from "an anonymous mother".

A full length version of Kill Bill may be coming to theaters early next year according to this
USA Today article


Here's what QT says about extras on the subsequent DVD:
"it won't make these two (current DVDs) obsolete. We have put everything we could on volumes 1 and 2, but I have all this cool stuff we have from over the course of a year and a half making (the films)."

My question is if he put "everything" on Volumes 1 & 2, how is there any "cool stuff" left?

Like it matters to me anyhow. I'd be at the theater the first night for a full-length theatrical release and at the store the first day for the DVD release.

Looks like the rumors have started again.

Quentin Tarantino plans to release a merged version of both parts of Kill Bill in cinemas .

"I want to cut the whole movie together like one big epic with an intermission in the middle like a 60s film," explained the iconic director. "It'll be coming out in theatres."

"I've been holding off because I've been working on it for so long that I just wanted a year off from Kill Bill and then I'll do the big supplementary DVD package."

He is set to start work early next year and get the final product in cinemas late next year.

I'm crossing my fingers and hope they put in a supposed fight scene that was cut out, starring Michael Jai White.

Speaking of which, what about the Grindhouse set? They're releasing the two films (Death Proof; Planet Terror) separately, which makes sense from a rental standpoint, but it's interesting that they're not - at least to start - releasing them as a doublefeature box set. Maybe come holiday time. I saw them in the theater together, with the hilarious faux coming attractions, and it was a blast that way. Wonder how they'll play on their own.

You'll probably only see that box set if the two films sell well enough on their own for the studio to double dip. It's too bad they're probably going to hold the fake trailers for it.

I'll be interested to see what difference the "missing scenes" make to each of the films. My feeling is that "Death Proof" could benefit the most. There seemed to be more missing from it than from "Planet Terror".
