Can Splitting ‘Grindhouse’ in the U.S. Save Face?

Can Splitting 'Grindhouse' in the U.S. Save Face?

Nikki Finke reports straight from Harvey Weinstein, that The Weinstein Company may re-release the two Grindhouse films separately in North America. This was already the plan for Europe, but after the miserable weekend business, it looks like the company is scrambling to make some cash on these films stateside. The questions are: Will the movies do any better when they go up against stuff like Spider-Man 3? Will audiences feel any more compelled to see Planet Terror or Death Proof as stand-alone films? Will the faux trailers in-between the two films wind up in these separate release (since they seem to be getting as much press/praise as the films themselves)?
