Grindhouse definitely to be two movies

The news from the top is that "the culture of grindhouses grinding out movies back to back is not familiar" to audiences in territories outside the US. As a result, Tarantino’s Death Proof will be released via Momentum Pictures/Dimension Films on 21 September 2007 with Robert Rodriguez’s Planet Terror released at a later date.

Harvey Weinstein stated, "Based on US audiences’ positive reactions to Quentin Tarantino's Death Proof and Robert Rodriguez's Planet Terror, combined with their resistance to the three-hour running time, we’ve revised our UK release plans to allow audiences the chance to see the films separately, like they will be shown in all international territories."
