Cool for “Kill Bill”, but when is the Director’s Cut coming out?

‘Kill Bill Vol. 2’; ‘Hellboy,’ more Columbia; Warner Elvis box set
Quentin Tarantino’s bloody, bravura ode to Asian chop socky films concludes in Kill Bill Vol. 2, which will make its DVD debut on August 10th. Although Tarantino is planning a mega-set of both films for release sometime in the future, for now Buena Vista Home Entertainment will give the flick a fairly slim edition, complete with anamorphic widescreen transfer, Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1 tracks, “The Making of Kill Bill Vol. 2” featurette, premiere party footage, deleted scenes and trailers.

King of Rock
Conspiracy theorists will have plenty of new evidence to sift through on August 3rd, when The King will return – at least in newly remastered, digital form. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Rock ‘n’ Roll, Warner Home Video will release six of Elvis Aaron Presley’s most popular movies: It Happened at the World’s Fair, Double Trouble, Speedway, Spinout, Harum Scarum and The Trouble with Girls. Each is newly remastered in anamorphic widescreen and includes an Elvis Presley trailer gallery.
