Note the Review starts at 4.33 after their review of Streets Of Fire.

The American cut version of OUATIA opened on the 1st June 1984 at the height of the Summer movie season and (as mentioned on this video) was up against Gremlins, Star Trek: The Search For Spock which opened the same week, Ghostbusters was opening the following week!

What the hell was Alan Ladd Jnr/The Ladd Company & Warner Bros thinking?  Even the European version of OUATIA would have struggled against these more commercial summer friendly films.

Arnon Milchan (the producer) was right he should have opened it at a few selected cinemas and started a word of mouth build up for the film - probably later on that year in time for award consideration.

Taken From Digital Bits

And here's something interesting: Fox and MGM have officially announced a Sergio Leone Spaghetti Western Trilogy for Blu-ray release in the U.K. on 6/7, including A Fistful of Dollars, the previously released The Good, The Bad and the Ugly and For a Few Dollars More. In fact, it's available for pre-order now on Amazon.co.uk. I've contacted Fox here in the States for word about a U.S. release and they haven't responded yet, but we'll keep on them to find out. This title ABSOLUTELY NEEDS TO BE RELEASED IN THE U.S. TOO! We'll post an update as soon as we have anything new.

Now official from Variety


Morricone accepts 'Inglorious' offer
Tarantino asks composer to score 'B**tards'

By NICK VIVARELLI

Will Ennio Morricone score "Bastards"?

The Italian composer says he has accepted Quentin Tarantino's offer to write the music for "Inglorious Bastards" -- but may not be able to cover all the needed material, given the pic's time constraints.

"Tarantino will finish shooting the film in February and has to deliver it by the end of April in time for Cannes," says the famously meticulous maestro from his Rome home. "That doesn't leave me enough time to do the music. Either I start working on it before he stops shooting -- after we discuss it together -- or I just can't do it."

Tarantino, who has been in Germany shooting the WWII pic toplining Brad Pitt as a Tennessee hillbilly who takes on the Nazis, is known to be a massive Morricone fan.

But while he has used several Morricone Spaghetti Western themes for "Kill Bill" and "Death Proof," having the composer do all of the music for "Bastards" would mark his first full original score on a Tarantino film.

Still, says Morricone, "I might end up just writing a couple of tracks."

Considering Morricone refused to contribute even a few minutes of original music for "Pulp Fiction," the composer has certainly changed his tune.


Also read on Aint It Cool that Tarantino could use some of Morricone's brilliant 70's music - from lesser known movies.
