Kill Bill on Blu-ray this week

From the Academy Award winning writer of Pulp Fiction (Best Original Screenplay, 1994), Reservoir Dogs and Jackie Brown, comes Quentin Tarantino’’s action-packed Kill Bill Volumes 1 and 2 to Blu-ray™, on Tuesday, September 9, 2008 from Miramax. This also marks the first time this wild cinematic rollercoaster ride of furious action, martial arts mayhem and good old fashioned revenge from these cult classics will be released to Blu-ray High-Definition.

Kill Bill was originally conceived as one film but released in two separate volumes due to its running time. The epic-length revenge drama, which heavily references earlier film genres, music and pop culture, won three MTV Movie Awards (“Best Fight,” Best Female Villain,” “Best Female Performance). Both volumes feature stellar Grammy-nominated soundtracks that are ideal for showcasing Blu-ray High-Definition’’s superior listening quality.

About Volume 1
Uma Thurman (“Pulp Fiction,” “Paycheck,” “Gattaca”) is The Bride (a former assassin named Black Mamba), ready for her big wedding day. But her boss Bill (David Carradine, TV’’s “Kung Fu”) has other plans and The Bride finds herself left for dead at the altar with a bullet in her head. When The Bride comes out of her four-year coma, she swears revenge on Bill and takes on his deadly squad of international assassins. KILL BILL Vol. 1 also stars Lucy Liu (“Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle,” “Chicago”), Vivica A. Fox (“Soul Food,” “Boat Trip”), Daryl Hannah (“Splash,” “A Walk To Remember”) and Michael Madsen (“Die Another Day”).

About Volume 2
After dispensing with former colleagues O-Ren Ishii (Lucy Liu) and Vernita Green (Vivica A. Fox) in “Kill Bill Volume 1,” the Bride (Uma Thurman, “Pulp Fiction,” “Paycheck”) goes out west to resume her quest for justice. She has two remaining foes on her ‘death list’ to pursue – Budd (Michael Madsen, “Die Another Day”) and Elle Driver (Daryl Hannah, “Splash,” “A Walk To Remember”). If she can survive these two assassins, she still has her ultimate goal to achieve – to kill Bill (David Carradine, TV’s “Kung Fu”). This adrenaline-fueled, wildly entertaining film brings together all the plot elements from “Kill Bill Volume 1” in a stunning finale.
