Kill Bill 2 in February

08.29.2003

Miramax has announced the date for VOLUME 2 of KILL BILL and unfortunately it's not 6 weeks later like we'd hoped. The second film will unspool on February 20th of 2004, a good four months after the first film. Why the long wait in between? It seems as if Miramax has Oscar hopes for the film and releasing both volumes in one Oscar year could potentially split any nominations, ending up with nothing. So VOLUME 1 will be eligible for awards this year and VOLUME 2 will be eligible for awards next year. But, you ask, what about THE MATRIX films? Surely Warner Bros is looking for some Oscar consideration for those films and they were both released in the same Oscar season? True but the WB is only submitting one MATRIX film for consideration. REVOLUTION will the studios awards submission and RELOADED will have to be happy not winning one single award. There were some rumors that both the WB and Miramax lobbied the Academy to consider their two-part films as one but Warners denies those claims. Miramax didn't comment but the always crafty Harvey Weinstein may have looked into the possibility. Either way, it didn't work out and now we have to wait until February to see VOLUME 2. Worth the wait? I think so.
