GrindhouseThe wait is over. After nearly a year of watching and wondering, after getting split releases for Death Proof and Planet Terror and after coming to the conclusion that it’d never happen, Golden Tomato-winning director Edgar Wright tells RT there’ll be a screening of the original cut of Grindhouse at the Prince Charles cinema in London ahead the print being made available to cinemas from March 28th.

The screening at the Prince Charles takes place on March 8th and Wright, whose fake trailer for a horror movie called Don’t was one of the casualties of the split and never made it outside of the USA, will be there to introduce the film and answer audience questions. The film’s UK distributors, Momentum, tell RT that it will also appear as part of Glasgow FrightFest on February 23rd.

They also tell us that this doesn’t mean the film is getting a full UK release. The print will be made available to cinemas from March 28th should they wish to book it for limited runs, late night or one-off engagements or events, but it will not be treated as a new release.

This is good news for fans of the separate parts and certainly bodes well for the possibility of an eventual DVD release. The film performed well with critics on its release but disappointing ticket sales forced the double bill to be split in two for release around the world.

For more information about the FrightFest engagement, click over to the FrightFest website. The Prince Charles tells us that booking isn’t currently open for the March 8th event with Edgar Wright, but from the end of the week you will be able to call them on 0870 811 2559 to secure tickets.
