The split was actually what they were going to do before the release, at least internationally, because the concept of a grindhouse double feature wouldn’t really translate overseas. But it looks like the concept didn’t even translate stateside. The Weinsteins would’ve been smarter to split the film here, but they didn’t. They decided to keep it’s integrity and lost a shitload of money. Remember how everyone freaked over the Kill Bill split? Looks like that was the right move.
Not in Australia, NZ and UK. Granted Europe was gearing up for the split beforehand, but we were expecting the double feature. Because it does translate. Europe may be different. But my dad remembers the days of double features. Plus, Australia used to make a shitload of cool exploitation films back in the day. But for some reason, no one would like to remember it, even those who were there.
