It’s shaping up to be a great holiday season for Quentin Tarentino fans now that Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction will be re-released on the big screen in celebration of the director’s 20 years in filmmaking.
Sadly both films will only have single-night runs, which means fans of the director will probably have to stand in line if they can’t secure advance tickets. Reservoir Dogs will have its single-night re-release on its 20 year anniversary, December 4, followed by Best Picture Academy Award nominee Pulp Fiction two days later on December 6.
Both Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction being re-released in theaters should increase the buzz surrounding the November 20 Miramax and Lionsgate Home Entertainment release of Tarantino XX: 8-Film Collection on Blu-ray. Containing eight films hand selected by the director himself, the set will highlight the first 20 years of Tarentino’s career. There are also two bonus discs which will contain seven hours of previously unreleased interviews and special features. The box-set is currently available for pre-order and features artwork by popular graphic artist Mondo.
Not only will Tarentino fans get to see his seminal works once again on the big screen, each showing will also feature a bonus documentary on his 20 years in filmmaking and several handpicked trailers of films that inspired the director to begin his own career.
All of this hype surrounding Tarentino’s 20 years of writing and directing culminates in the December 25 premiere of his latest film, Django Unchained starring Jamie Foxx as a slave-turned-bounty hunter who sets out to rescue his wife from an evil plantation owner.
