"Grindhouse" Split Plan Aborted

Plans to split two segments of "Grindhouse" for a U.S. re-release in summer reportedly have been cancelled.

"Grindhouse" fans around the States really should cheer up by this time as it turns out that the double-feature flick will be kept as whole, according to JoBlo.

The site apparently has learned from an insider of The Weinstein Company that all plans to get the picture split for a summer re-release have been thrown away and so, it will continue to run as one film in U.S. theaters. The studio, however, did try to screen the two segments of movie, "Planet Terror" and "Death Proof", separately in some cinemas while keeping them together in other places with an intermission instead of the fake trailers.

Theatrically launched on Friday, April 6, 2007, "Grindhouse" features "Proof" as a rip-roaring slasher pic and "Terror" as a movie exploring an alien world eerily familiar to ours with several faux trailers being screened before both segments. While only finished on number four in its debut on the weekend box office, the flick sadly dropped to the tenth rank in its second spin on the chart after merely collecting $4.3 million.
