The first was inspired by The Shaw Brother’s Kung Fu films, while Vol.2 has more of a Spaghetti Western theme, making them both stand alone Tarantino films. So will putting them together be worthwhile to see? In addition to them being cut together, The Crazy 88 battle with The Bride (Uma Thurman) will be in color, which was turned to black and white for an 18 rating, due to its blood content.

As many of you may know, director Quentin Tarantino's original version of Kill Bill was just one, extremely long film. The four-hour movie originally debuted at the Cannes Film Festival in 2003, before The Weinstein Company asked the filmmaker to cut it into Kill Bill Vol. 1 and Kill Bill Vol. 2.
Since its initial release over a decade ago, several fans have been wondering if the filmmaker's original version will ever see the light of day, which has since been dubbed Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair. Director Quentin Tarantino teased during his Comic-Con appearance yesterday that he has been in discussions with The Weinstein Company about a limited theatrical release sometime next year.

That caught the ear of several critics who vocalized their concern that, unlike ABC’s Black-ish, Cristela, and Fresh Off the Boat, CBS’s comedies all appeared “extremely white.” (For the record, that’s Mom, Mike & Molly, 2 Broke Girls, Two and a Half Men, The Millers, and The Big Bang Theory. »

Good thing news broke on Wednesday that the cast of "The Big Bang Theory" is still negotiating with CBS and Wbtv, because without that, there wouldn't have been much excitement to be expected from Thursday (July 17) morning's Television Critics Association press tour panel with CBS Entertainment Chairman Nina Tassler. So we've got that to look forward to. We can also probably expect some queries about Thursday Night Football, the early performance of Halle Berry's "Extant" and maybe CBS' difficulties launching midseason shows (but probably not).
