Jackie Brown and Pulp Fiction coming to BluRay

Unbelievable, a news article not about Quentin Tarantino‘s new movie Django Unchained! I know you were expecting an update on the flick from the news source you trust. The thing is, there is not terribly much hard facts to report and we are not much into copying the rumors and tidbits that have been around the web already. For that, we have Twitter and Facebook and you’re totally invited to like our Facebook Page and follow us on Twitter. Having said that, one of the many other things Tarantino fans are waiting for (aside from Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair to come out on DVD) is to have all the QT movies on home video, and the high def nerds want it on BluRay. There are currently no BluRay releases of Quentin’s Jackie Brown and his Pulp Fiction, so it is cool to hear that Lionsgate (who has the Miramax catalog titles now, or something, can someone refresh my memory what happened there?) will be releasing the two movies this coming October.

According to Blu-ray.com and Highdefdigest.com the two discs with yet unknown specifications will arrive on October 4th. It was hinted at that Jackie Brown might get a prior run exclusively for Wal Mart, but we know that Amazon‘s tentacles are capable enough and the title will then soon be available rather widely. The previous special edition DVD releases (see: Pulp here, Jackie here) included quite a bit of special features, so it might be safe to assume that the extras might be carried over. There is not much new material to include (not many documentaries on the films that they could dig up) and since QT does not do audio commentaries on his own movies (and is busy prepping Django Unchained), it is safe to assume that they will not include an audio commentary either. I just hope they will otherwise be decent as opposed to the horrible as hell release of From Dusk Till Dawn that you might know is available.

This is of course US-specific news as both Jackie Brown and Pulp Fiction are already available in other countries to some extent. Click here for our over view page of Tarantino titles on BluRay (which desperately needs your input, please help us complete it). Please post below if you have more information or if you think this is bollocks because BluRay is for babies, or whatever. That’s it for now, we’ll be back shortly with Django Unchained news.

    I’m surprised you guys didn’t have them already. Here in Europe I’ve owned them for quite some time, and generally Europeans are the last ones to access this kind of things…

    This Tarantino Blog is such a fail. You’re not up to date on shit, miss out on major bits and revelations. I’m going to slashfilm.

    • Unlike the bigger news sites, we do not have a staff of contributors
      around the clock ready to post stuff the second it pops up. What we do
      have is good sources so our policy is not to post everything that
      comes up, for that we have Twitter and Facebook. We do not have the
      resources to type up blogposts full of non-info like many news blogs
      everytime something comes up. We’re working hard to giving you the
      inside scoop on Tarantinosphere, but seriously, if a site like
      slashfilm has the news, why should we just copy it? We’re not a
      business, we’re not like missing out on anything. And we’re not
      missing out on anything either. Like I said, we are on top of all
      things, just not wasting blog posts for every little rumor that comes

    Did you guys get the special edition release of True Romance on DVD?  QT does do audio commentary with a couple other guys.  And he did a commentary on Hostel.  Of course, he did not direct either of these, and maybe feels some distance from the material so that he can comment like that.  It would be fun for him to do audio tracks to other films as a kind of fan/edutainment, like when film scholars comment on criterion releases.  Or, the best of all time, Roger Ebert’s commentary on Citizen Kane – incredible.

  6. You guys are insane. You did exactly ONE news item about ‘Django’ before this.

     I think if you counted how many times I’ve seen each of Tarantino’s films, “Jackie” would be the clear winner.  It’s the emotional journey the film takes me on that I keep going back for.

    I just watched  Jackie  Brown yesterday what a “coincidence”  huh   “I didn’t know you liked the Delfontees”

    I was watching “Death Proof” and  I could of sworn I saw  Kurt Russell’s shirt from the movie  “Big Trouble in little China” hanging up on the wall in that bar where he was eating the Nacho’s so I paused it and kept looking frame by frame and sure enough there it was. At that point  I figured some one else must have noticed this so I looked it up and there it was  posted on some site”If you look close you can see  Kurt Russell’s shirt from the film B.T.I.L.C. hanging on the BAR ROOM wall in Q.T. movie
    “Death Proof” ” I wonder if it is still hanging at that bar?
