Check out these wicked behind the scenes photos from Kill Bill Volume 1

Kill Bill Volume 1 blood splatter banner

The "Showdown at House of Blue Leaves" sequence in KILL BILL is one of the most well structured series of action scenes in recent cinematic history, with moment after moment of memorable encounters and cool moves and vicious deaths and gripping choreography and fantastic music composition.  It honestly has just about anything and everything one might hope for in an extended fight sequence.

Anyone who agrees with any part of the above statement should then much appreciate the fact that Mirimax, the production company behind KILL BILL (and most every other Tarantino flick), has now released ten behind the scenes pictures from the aforementioned epic fight sequence. 

They are a fascinating glimpse into the sort of work done by behind the scenes folks in order to craft those moments we as audience members find so very cool, and I couldn't be happier that Mirimax released these images so that we can fully appreciate the brilliant work the production people do.  Plus its just fun to have a glimpse of people resting and laughing between takes while surrounded by KILL BILL's hallmark blood and gore.

At first I want to say Vol 1. But Vol 2 has some great dialogue and character interactions, plus the Pai Mei training sequence, and the showdown with Bill. So Volume 2 for me

Tidbit. Preferred vol 1 only because I thought the music was far better than in vol 2.

The western fan in me is partial to Vol. 2, along with the more grounded fight scenes and more David Carradine. But there's no denying that the first one is loads of fun too.

This fight sequence *would* have been one of the greatest of all time had they not arbitrarily presented it in black-and-white. I still remember feeling cheated out of something great the moment I saw this go B&W, and my interest in it dropped significantly.

I'm more inclined to Vol. 1. simply because of the appearance of Kenji Ohba, one of my childhood hero from Space Sheriff Gavan.

The "Whole Bloody Affair" needs a release ASAP. Everytime I think about buying these movies, I don't b/c I have hope the expanded release will happen.

Hooray for practical gore effects! Also, I'd really like the "Whole Bloody Affair" on blu-ray now. I remember when some exec or producer bragged about how many times they'd double dip the Kill Bill movies and created such a backlash it pretty much stopped all planned releases (there was something like 5 in total just on DVD at the time). Give us the ultimate version now though; I'm ready to upgrade from my crappy bare bones DVDs.

I do love these photos! It really makes you appreciate all the small details that make up such a complex sequence.

I wonder though why these were released now. Perhaps there is other news on the horizon...

this was rumored to be a part of that "Whole Bloody Mess" edition QT promised 7 years ago. I guess we take what we can get.
Volume 1 please. Cant get enough of the Pussy Wagon.

Vol. 2, because Vol. 1 is godawful until she gets to Japan.

Very cool, if there's ever a book of images like these, count me in!

Wish there was some moments between Uma and Zoe Bell, that would have been fun to see. I enjoy the second film more than the first, but both are pretty terrific.
