Grind House

Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino have teamed up once again!

Earlier they had started a joint project called as Grind House which is a throwback to the old school 70’s flicks that both of them had grown up on, two truncated films connected by a series of movie trailers that Rodriguez says will be for "movies that don't exist" (fake movie trailers in between both movies).

It was rumoured earlier to be an instalment of two short films, but now the news is out that it is to be two feature length pictures; Planet Terror and Death Proof slated to be released April 2007.

Some gyaan from Wiki:
Between the two segments will be trailers advertising fake films.

Tarantino has stated that fake trailers will be shot for a blaxploitation film, a kung fu film, a sexploitation movie and a Spaghetti Western film.

Tarantino confirmed that he will be directing the trailer for the sexploitation 'film' Cowgirls in Sweden.

Danny Trejo, the usual suspect from Rodriguez saddle will be in a fake trailer for a movie called They Call Him Machete, possibly a parody on the character of the same name that Trejo played in Spy Kids. Trejo's other characters in Rodriguez movies have also had names similar to knives, such as Razor Charlie in From Dusk Till Dawn.

In addition, Eli Roth and Edgar Wright have been confirmed to direct fake trailers.

Here's some more gyaan on Grind House from Wiki:
Grind House is a 2007 film that consists of two segments, of which both are feature-length attractions. One segment, Planet Terror, will be a zombie film written and directed by Robert Rodríguez.

The other segment, Death Proof, will be a slasher film written and directed by Quentin Tarantino. There will also be trailers advertising fake films between the segments. Grind House is expected to be released on April 6, 2007.

I came across these posters for Grind House recently, check them out. Click on the images for a larger display.

By the way gyaan is Sanskrit for Knowledge and has entered English dictionary and soon might stand next to already common guru, mantra, karma and all that stuff.

Parting Shot
Can you recognize the dudes below?
Both the images are of the same band from 1972 and 1974.
They are one of the greatest heavy metal bands on earth.
