Trailer for Planet Terror - in UK cinemas November 9th
2nd Nov 07
We're a little excited, because we're just hours away now from the UK (preview) premiere of Robert Rodriguez's Planet Terror, one of the main events at FrightFest's ICA All-nighter tonight in London, (alongside George A Romero who will be there to introduce a screening of his new film Diary of the Dead, Frontiere(s), Inside and 80s film Savage Streets).
Rodriguez's half of the original double-feature Grindhouse project, alongside Quentin Tarrantino's Death Proof, is released nationwide in the UK by Momentum on November 9th, and it's a rollicking ride through true grindhouse nirvana, complete with zombies, stunts on motorbikes and a girl with a gun for a leg.
We're currently putting together a small mini-site for the film with assorted clips and images (www.eatmybrains.com/planetterror/), but to whet your appetites in advance, see below for the trailer links.
Robert Rodriguez, co-director of SIN CITY, brings you PLANET TERROR, a retro-futuristic vision of horror thatís been weathered, stripped, and aged to perfection.
In PLANET TERROR, married doctors William and Dakota Block (Josh Brolin and Marley Shelton) find their graveyard shift inundated with townspeople ravaged by gangrenous sores and a suspiciously vacant look in their eyes.
Among the wounded is Cherry (Rose McGowan), a go-go dancer whose leg was ripped from her body during a roadside attack. Wray (Freddy Rodriguez), her former significant other, is at her side and watching her back. Cherry may be down, but she hasnít danced her last number. As the invalids quickly become enraged aggressors, Cherry and Wray lead a team of accidental warriors into the night, hurtling towards a destiny that will leave millions infected, countless dead, and a lucky few struggling to find the last safe corner of PLANET TERROR.
PLANET TERROR also stars Michael Biehn, Jeff Fahey, Naveen Andrews, Stacy Ferguson and Michael Parks.
