Tarantino sequel quickly hits shelves, set will follow
HOLLYWOOD — Miramax is releasing “Kill Bill Vol. 2” on DVD just four months after its theatrical preem, which itself was just three days after “Vol. 1” debuted on DVD.
The second part of Quentin Tarantino’s two-part saga arrives on DVD Aug. 10. “Vol. 2” has grossed about $58 million at U.S. theaters, down from the $70 million of the original, which was released theatrically last October.
Like the “Vol. 1” disc, the DVD for “Vol. 2” has few bonus features: a featurette, a clip featuring a performance by Robert Rodriguez’s band Chingon at the movie’s premiere and a deleted scene.
Tarantino and Miramax execs have said one or more special editions of each movie will come later, as will a DVD set with the two movies combined as one.
Disney’s Buena Vista Home Entertainment distributes Miramax DVDs.
