Coming March 6 to region 2 is the 6-disc DVD set of Grindhouse, which you’ll have to import from Japan. This release looks to be better than the US DVD release, so this is probably the edition to invest in – even though it still looks disappointing. It looks as if many of the features have already been used, while other look like they were pulled from the press kit for the theatrical release of the film. But on disc five is the full theatrical cut that we’re hoping includes the faux trailers!
And as we reported earlier, Robert Rodriguez also mentioned on DVD commentary for Planet Terror, that a two disc version of Grindhouse will be coming to the US shortly. Still no word on it’s possible features except that it will include a Rodriguez DVD favorite – a cooking school;Â “texas barbeque style.”
Read on for the Japanese 6-Disc DVD specs, thanks to Bloody-Disgusting.com for the cool news!
Read on for the specs.
As Riikka is heading out of the country for the holidays, and I’m experiencing technical problems and celebrating with my family, and Rachel will be doing the same as well, Rose-McGowan.com will likely not be updated until early January – unless there will be major news to post. We will not be coming online much and will be unable to reply to any emails or approve comments until January.
Happy holidays, merry Christmas and fabulous New Year 2008 to all of our visitors! We really love working on the site and appreciate your support a lot. We canâ€™t wait to see what 2008 will bring to Rose – and you can be sure that weâ€™ll be here to cover it every step of the way. 🙂
It truly has been an amazing year for Rose McGowan, and us the fans! From her return to the big screen with Grindhouse, all of the amazing magazine coverage, lots of events, news and, yes, even those rumors – it’s definitely been quite the year. We’re honored we got to run Rose-McGowan.com and enjoy in all the great things with Rose this year. Riikka, Rachel and I have compiled this list of what we feel is the best of Rose from 2007. Please feel free to post your own choices here or play along in the forum! 😉 Here’s to hopefully, many more years of Rose-McGowan.com to come!
• Best news:
All agree: It has been a big year but the fan Q&A that Rose did for the site is definitely our favorite piece of news… We will never forget about it! [view entry] The release of Grindhouse and all of the rave reviews that it – and especially Rose herself – got. The announcement of her starring in Black Oasis [view entry] and Man on the Run [view entry]. Rose finding herself a great guy and her rumored engagement with Robert Rodriguez. Can’t wait for all of the films we’ll see from the talented two! Here’s to hoping for Barbarella!
• Worst news:
All agree: Definitely all of the awful internet gossip and flaming towards Rose and Robert. Ugh! The delay of Black Oasis and the budget problems with Barbarella. Grindhouse‘s box office failure.
Rose graced 13+ covers this year! Atleast eight of them featured new photoshoots and original material! We unamiously choose the Rolling Stone April 19, 2007 cover as our favorite of the year. Rose was pictured with fellow Death Proof co-star Rosario Dawson, wearing nothing but bullets to cover those “parts”. This cover was aww-shocking to say the least.
Just a reminder that we’re always looking for all kinds of affiliates, especially dedicated to Rose’s co-stars. Feel free to apply here if you’re interested.
We’re also the Featured Site over at Miss Winstead Net. 🙂
Rose has been snapped shopping in the Los Angeles area in the past few days. Yesterday she looked gorgeous in blue taking photos with her IPhone while waiting for her car after doing some shopping at Barney’s in Beverly Hills. On Friday Robert and her went to the Farmer’s Market and The Grove shopping center in Los Angeles. Rose kept warm in her adorable hat and coat.
Rose partied up at the Alexandra Von Furstenberg, Jacqui Getty, Ryan Haddon & Shiva Rose Holiday Party in Beverly Hills on Saturday. She looked as pretty as a princess in a breath-taking sleeveless swing dress.
If you agree with us that Rose McGowan is most definitely one of the foxiest screen sirens ever, be sure to cast your vote for her at Playboy‘s Sexiest Woman of the Year (site only for mature viewers!) and AskMen.comâ€™s Top 99 Most Desirable Women. At AskMen.com, scroll through the galleries and rank each of the nominees on a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being the most desirable). Feel free to vote as many times as you like – the final results will be revealed on January 31, 2008. Playboy will tally the votes of their poll and publish the results (along with photos) in their March 2008 issue.
Thanks to everyone who informed us of these two polls. 🙂
Back in September, we reported about Rose being photographed in Milan for Vanity Fair Italia. It seems that shoot has surfaced in the pages of the December 2007 issue with the Dalai Lama on the cover, on sale now!
Rose looks nothing short of stunning with her flaming red champagne color hair, pin-up looks and in her very Barbarella themed attire. Huge thank you to forum member RoseRocks for scanning the pages for us to see! An english transcript of the article should be available shortly.
Can you believe it’s the end of the year and we’re still seeing such amazing new coverage with Rose?! This truly has been a fun year for us fans, wouldn’t you say! 😉
The Rose-McGowan.com Photo Gallery has a new look! It features Rose’s stunning outtakes from this year’s Italian Vogue. It was made by myself and we really hope you all like it! However if you prefer the lighter gray tones you can still select the old theme from the drop down menu at the bottom of the page. 😉
Furthermore, we have done a lot of remodeling and uploading in the photoshoots section. As regular visitors may notice, the shoots are now assorted by their years, then alphabetically by magazine. Over a hundred new shoot images and missing outtakes have been added so be sure to register/log in to view all of our Rose McGowan photoshoots dating back to 1995!

Belfast Telegraph has published a new article regarding Rose’s newest movie, Man on the Run. It mainly talks about Sir Ben Kingsley’s involvement in it as well as future shooting locations.
Oscar winner Sir Ben Kingsley is in Northern Ireland this week to shoot a controversial new movie on the life of IRA informer Martin McGartland – but has so far eluded local photographers.
Man on the Run, directed by Canadian Kari Skogland, is based on McGartland’s book Fifty Dead Men Walking, which tells of his time as a double agent between 1987 and 1991.
Scenes have already been shot in the villages of Ardglass and Killough but it is understood filming will take place today in the Donegall Street/Union Street area of Belfast.
