Poster and lobby cards for Tarantino and Rodriguez's Grindhouse.
30th Dec 06
Going for the classic 'dated' retro feel then I take it. To the left and below are the recently released poster artwork and lobby cards for Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez's Grindhouse (or Grind House if you live in the US), currently slated for an April 6th release in America, (no official date as yet for the UK).
There's been some online criticism over the look and feel of these cards / poster, but we kinda like them. Judge for yourself below (click on the images to see the full-res versions).

In the film, Tarantino and Rodriguez each direct a feature length horror tale.
In Tarantino’s Death Proof, Austin’s hottest DJ, Jungle Julia, sets out into the night to unwind with her two friends Shanna an Arlene. Covertly tracking their moves is Stuntman Mike, a scarred rebel leering from behind the wheel of his muscle car, revving just feet away.
In Rodriguez’s Planet Terror, two doctors find their graveyard shift inundated with townspeople ravaged by sores. Among the wounded is Cherry, a dancer whose leg was ripped from her body. As the invalids quickly become enraged aggressors, Cherry and her ex-boyfriend Wray lead a team of accidental warriors into the night.
Grindhouse will also include fake movie trailers in between both movies to be directed by Eli Roth and Edgar Wright (see our Interview with Eli Roth here).
The cast list is crammed with B-movie favourites such as Michael Biehn, Josh Brolin, Rosario Dawson, Jeff Fahey, Rose McGowan, the Black Eyed Peas' Stacy Ferguson, Tom Savini, Danny Trejo and Kurt Russell.
