Default RUMOR: Grindhouse Theatrical Aug 18

Over at releaselists.com they've posted that there are some rumblings of a theatrical version of Grindhouse with a date of August 18th. Just a rumor at this point but releaselists typically have posted information before most. This would be pretty sweet as I know a lot of people have been wanting one package, myself included.

The real interesting part is who would be releasing it: Weinstein? Contracted out to Universal.

If this does get released I will be buying it day one. Buying the films individually just feels like someone is cheating me.

From The Weinsteins? No, not happening. They can't even manage to dump 3 DTVs out on Blu-ray in American and instead opted for Alliance to release them in Canada. It may have been their plan to release them in August....but I doubt anymore. Some studio just needs to buy up the Weinstein catalog so I can get a friggin Blu-ray release of Suspiria already.

I have managed to hold off on buying the stand alones...in hopes of seeing a rumor or news on its ''true'' release. I hope this rumor turns out to be true.

That would be badass, but weinstein can't even release Inglorious Basterds on right now.....

It would be awesome news, if Universal picked up the rights..

Weinsteins just teamed up with Universal for Basterds...not everything. H2 will be the movie which really define if Weinstein sinks or not. If it fails, they will likely have no choice but be merged into another studio. Considering Paramounts situation right now, Disney trying to offload Dimension etc. I think Lionsgate is the best bet since they are horror-oriented.

What is Paramount's situation right now? I figured they'd be doing good - Iron Man & Indy IV last year, Star Trek is the biggest hit of 2009 so far, and they have Transformers 2 just around the corner.

To read up on what Weinstein has coming out visit:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Weinstein_Company

Look at the movies they bought and sold the rights to. Look at their output in the next 2 years. Scream 4 is the only film they have besides H2 AND Basterds (which Uni will be handling). They are pretty much done.
