Why this has taken so long is beyond me, but it looks like we might be in for a treat as an early announcement to retailers indicates that Genius Products and The Weinstein Company are set to release Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino’s Grindhouse on Blu-ray on August 11, reports Blu-ray.com. No edition details are available, other than this would be a two-disc set, but it may well be the theatrical Grindhouse double feature. ‘Grindhouse’ was conceived, edited and shown theatrically (in the US) as a typical exploitation double-feature as one could attend at cheap theaters in the 1970s: it consisted of two features (‘Planet Terror’, by Robert Rodriguez, and ‘Death Proof’ by Quentin Tarantino), interspersed with fake trailers and bumpers.
