Miss McGowan and Mr Rodriguez are currently attenting the American Foundation for AIDS Research ‘Cinema Against AIDS’ Gala. It was at the very same gala that the director and his muse first met back in 2005. They’re both looking great and Rose’s dress especially is quite something!

I think not! I have updated all of the Cannes albums with plenty of more pictures. We now have over 300 HQs from yesterday alone! Click here to view all of the new additions.
Shortly after the Death Proof premiere, Rose attended the VIP Party held. She changed out of the heavy red gown into a more comfortable white lacey number. I have added the first photos for your viewing pleasure. Tons more coverage still coming!

Six pictures have now been added from the Death Proof press conference, that was just held in Cannes.
Edit: Producer Harvey Weinstein was also present at the press conference and according to NYpress.com, he had the following to say about the future re-releases of the Grindhouse films:
What you see when you see Planet Terrorâ€”and what you see when you see Death Proofâ€”is Robert Rodriguez making a Robert Rodriguez movie, and Quentin Tarantino making a Quentin Tarantino movie, for esoteric reasons. These guys put out their movies at the same time and crunched them together. That removed some of the essence of the films. The scene with Stuntman Mike [where Russell receives a lap dance] makes it a completely difference experience. Itâ€™s a thirty second scene. Itâ€™s like saying, â€˜OK, I cut Kill Bill and Sin City to 70 minute versions because I wanted to call it Grindhouse.â€™ To me, youâ€™re missing the essence of Rodriguez and Tarantino. So yes, we had a good time doing Grindhouse, but weâ€™re working with audiencesâ€¦and hopefully weâ€™re going to release it in America. Theyâ€™re going to get a lot more enjoyment when they see those films as intended. We will dwarf Grindhouse. Trust me.

As earlier reported, the extended cut of Death Proof is premiering tonight at the Cannes Film Festival and Rose McGowan, alongside Quentin Tarantino, Robert Rodriguez, Kurt Russell, Rosario Dawson, Zoe Bell and Tracy Thoms, is at the Croisette to promote the film. The photocall is taking place as I write this. I’ve added the first pics from it to the gallery. Stay tuned for much more coverage throughout the day!

I’ve updated the video vault with four video clips and the trailer for one of Rose’s coolest movies ever, The Doom Generation. These are a must see if you have not had the chance to see the movie yet. Warning: mature viewers only! The clips contain ‘adult’ language and violence.
With the Death Proof premiere at Cannes soon, the talk of the Grindhouse split talk is still going. The film was already being split for several countries as you know, and after the very disapointing US box office run there was talk of Planet Terror and Death Proof going solo in the States to try and earn back some of it’s money by the Weinstein Company by releasing both flicks with longer cuts. But exactly one month ago a report came out that said the split idea was mostly likely kiboshed. Although we are still awaiting confirmation and/or clarification, here is what could happen:
Bloody-Disgusting.com was told that if the Cannes screening of the extended version of Tarantino’s Death Proof is a success, you can count on seeing the film released solo here in the States. We’ve also been told that Rodriguez’s Planet Terror might also see a release too.
But just last week we were hearing mumblings of Planet Terror hitting DVD sometime in the fall without any word of Tarantino’s. Does this mean they’ve already made a decision on Death Proof or are they just releasing the DVDs on separate street dates?
B-D is digging and will report back as soon as we find out more. Needless to say, it sounds like we have some interesting news coming shortly.
