The Grudge 3
With all the news that keeps pouring in today, I'm gonna keep this short and sweet. If you own a Blu-ray player, this is a very good week for you. But even if you don't, there are plenty of releases that should make your wallet feel the pinch.
Toby Wilkins is not happy simply being a director. He’s also a storyteller with a vision. His two latest films, Splinter (review here) and The Grudge 3 (review here), both prove that he’s got a long career ahead of him filedl with engrossing stories he wants to share with audiences.
Man, Toby Wilkins just can’t catch a break when it comes to DVD releases for his films. First Splinter gets pushed up a few months with nary a word from the studio, and now The Grudge 3 has been relocated from March to May.
Sony has finally released the artwork for The Grudge 3, the direct-to-DVD sequel helmed by Splinter director Toby Wilkins. The only extras on the DVD will be two making-of featurettes and deleted scenes when the disc streets on March 24th.
You know, rarely do I get excited about sequels. I loved the Ju-on movies, but for whatever reason, even with creator Takashi Shimizu at the helm of the American remakes, they still felt kind of stale. With the upcoming release of Ghost House Pictures' The Grudge 3 from Sony, some interesting surprises have been popping up. The latest one? Gone is the PG-13 rating, and in its place the MPAA has granted this third U.S. entry an R rating, the first in the franchise's history.
Toby Wilkins (interview here) has kicked ass and taken names with his debut feature, Splinter, but the first reason we started talking about him was because he got the semi-sweet gig of directing the first non-Shimizu-helmed Grudge sequel.
The official site for Toby Wilkins’ feature debut, Splinter, kicked in the doors of the internet over the weekend and it’s very ... pointy. Lots and lots of sharp edges on this one, but don’t take my word for it; check out the Splinter site here to see what I mean.
