Cherry Darling Greets Comic-Con Goers26 Jul, 2007 By: Thomas K. Arnold
SAN DIEGO — To promote the Oct. 16 DVD release of Robert Rodriguez's Planet Terror, Genius Products and The Weinstein Co. brought a Cherry Darling look-alike to Comic-Con International to meet and greet fans. She's a real-life amputee, with an actual machine gun leg specially fashioned to fit her.
Planet Terror will arrive on DVD in a two-disc extended and unrated edition, at $29.95. Extras include an audio commentary from director Rodriguez, deleted scenes and a special feature on the hot women in the movie, appropriately titled "The Badass Babes of Planet Terror."
Genius/Weinstein also used Comic-Con to announce the Sept. 18 DVD release of Quentin Tarantino's Death Proof, also available in a $29.95 two-disc extended and unrated edition, nearly 30 minutes longer than the original theatrical version. Extras include featurettes on Kurt Russell as Stuntman Mike, film editor Sally Menke and "The Guys of Death Proof."
