Another GRINDHOUSE present - this time 6 Lobby Cards from Robert Rodriguez's PLANET TERROR!!!

Hey folks, Harry here - this time with 6 of the Robert Rodriguez portion of Grindhouse, called PLANET TERROR. It is amazing that these things are in as good a condition as they are, what with the type of theaters they've frequented. Not nearly enough tape stains and coffee spills. And I wonder if on the back, they're stamped by the various paper distribution houses that held onto these things between engagements - or the collectors that the Weinstein Company probably had to pay through the nose to get these for this big rerelease. Oh well, mine are in better condition, but I'm too lazy to bring them over to my scanner, so these will have to keep you satisfied for now. Here ya go... Activate Slobber Protection!

    The only good thing I can see is Rose McGowen.

    by nomihs

    She is red hot, whereas the idea is just simmering on the surface. All I have to say is more Q and A. Bring on the whores...As Pops would say. Dirty Work anyone?

    The film!!!!!

    by Zakari Paolon

    I love how scratched up the film is! It looks so fucking oldschool! I heard a rumor there was a reel missing from the movie, on purpose, to recreate the feel of going to see these movies no one took seriously and presented even if five minutes were missing due to the film having burnt while being projected, or scensorship or just bad maintenance. If they had the guts to do that, I praise them! I can honestly say that everything I've seen about this so far has me more and more thrilled.

    You guys really know what sucks about Grind House?

    by peterhengl

    The fact that internationally it's going to be released as TWO MOVIES. So - no double feature experience for people outside the US. That sucks.

  • Dec. 21, 2006, 2:39 a.m. CST

    Just watched the trailer!

    by Mace Tofu

    OH YEAH ! This looks crazy. Love the Machete clip lol and the fourth lobbycard down is now my new desktop ( sorry Standee )

  • Dec. 21, 2006, 2:44 a.m. CST

    What are the two missing cards then?

    by Uncapie

    Considering lobby cards were sets of eight.

    Lobby Cards

    by drew mcweeny

    Says it all. Either you are the type of person that enjoys the fact that there are FUCKING LOBBY CARDS for this film, or you're not. Love it. This is fetish as art, fellas, and done right, it's a beautiful thing. If you've ever been to a QT Fest, you can testify... his love of exploitation and grindhouse is true, not kitsch, and he's not making fun of the films he shows. Tarantino and Rodriguez doing grindhouse is akin to Warhol doing soup cans. It's culture as comment on culture, and it's the degree to which they carry the fetish that makes it even more fun. I want the standee in my living room. Now.

  • Dec. 21, 2006, 3:01 a.m. CST

    I think 8 more lobbycards are on the Standee

    by Mace Tofu

    Go to the standee post and you can see the misssing cards on the larger photo of the lobby standee. The trailer is up now at iKlipz

    I don't think I know ...

    by The Cosh

    ...what lobby cards actually are. I do know that this whole enterprise looks godawful.

  • Dec. 21, 2006, 5:04 a.m. CST

    How can you not be looking forward to grindhouse?

    by Judge Dredds Dirty Undies

    It looks awesome. Michael Biehn back in a proper film finally! And the other one has fucking Kurt Russell in it, awesome!

    Lobby Cards...the good ol' days!

    by Bob Cryptonight

    I've got a set from STAR WARS, SUPERMAN: THE MOVIE, and DOC SAVAGE: THE MAN OF BRONZE (and also a couple stray ones from the 1966 BATMAN flick). Good times...

    Leg of Death!


    You probably wouldn't want to give her a foot-massage.

    Word to the wise

    by Pandas

    You're going to have real problems getting let on a plane with that leg, love. And even if you do get on, you're going to have to ask for an aisle seat.

    by europeguy

    No Double-Feature Experience for Europe. They show "Planet Terror" in April an "Death Proof" in October. This suxxx! What about the Fake Trailers?

    Trailer Link Anyone?

    by BanAllFIRSTPosters

    YouTube took down the trailer that was shown back a month or two for copyright infringement. Does anybody have a mirror?

    by RenoNevada2000

    Lobby Cards

    by Spandau Belly

    I bought that collector's edition of Beyond The Valley of the Dolls and it came with reprinted lobby cards from the original release and they cracked me up. I'm too young to remember lobby cards actually existing, but I found it a cool thing to include in a DVD package.

  • Dec. 21, 2006, 8:04 a.m. CST

    These cards are bonerlicious

    by Doctor_Sin

    I love collecting old lobby cards (my faves are horror/sci fi films of the 50s and 60s) and the spirit of these is just fucking amazing. Damn.

  • Dec. 21, 2006, 8:10 a.m. CST

    I've seen lobby cards for almost every movie out there

    by dtpena

    but maybe it's just my fave theater, they love that stuff. I thought everyone did that.

  • Dec. 21, 2006, 9:49 a.m. CST

    i could not be more excited

    by visitor_q

    about this movie if i tried

    guy on left look like a wuss.

    by cooterbrown

    sorta ruins it all for me.

    Waaa, waaa, waaa, Moriarity.

    by Uncapie

    If they're going rip off the format they might as well do it right. And that's what they're doing; ripping it off. The ironic part is, they're making $20 million dollar A.I.P. movies that Sam and Jack did for $300,000. What their doing is called a ballyhoo. If they were smart, they'd create the whole pressbook format. Send it all out there. Widnow cards, 40x60's, 24 sheets, etc. You may have worked in a video store, and that's cool, but I grew up around all this at a drive-in theater my dad owned.

  • Dec. 22, 2006, 12:44 p.m. CST

    extremely cool, but...

    by treadwell

    ...a minor nit: There would not be film print scratches on publicity photos used to make the lobby cards. ;)
