They threw in everything but the kitchen sink into this one!
Features the full Planet Terror script--along with the "Machete" script/making of. Bonus feature has Eli Roth talking about his trailer along with the making of/script.
Tons of hot photos featuring the stars, and the actual "Grindhouse" posters. Tons of lobby card pics are here as well.
This is a great addition to your library.
I love this thing!!!!
The book details the hugh support network Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino had in putting out their "Grindhouse" experience. There are tons of interviews and many full page pictures detailing how certain things were accomplished in the back to back movies, "Planet Terror" and "Death Proof." Tarantino has a great introduction to the grindhouse movie theaters (drive ins were mentioned as well) experiences in the 70s and early 80s.
I am quite satisfied with this coffee table sized, behind the scenes look.
So for the film's fans who want a little extra bonus features this is a good buy. There is some film-making insight, but this is more of a glimpse, and some of it is in video form on the DVDs. It supports the involved, and since its box-office revenue was less than desired, I loved these films and the idea behind their conception and would love more of them. So please, if you love these films, buy this book, buy the DVDs, and hey even push your local niche-theaters to rerun Grindhouse come halloween! -SOB
There is a LOT of really interesting info in here - from the Planet Terror screenplay, to interviews with a lot of special effects guys, detailing many of the stunts and crashes, and how they were performed and filmed. There are also tons of images taken from the film and the development.
Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino talk a lot about their inspirations and thought processes behind the madcap action too.
If you're a fan of the movies, you will LOVE this book. Highly recommended.
