    Pulp Fiction Blu-ray Disc


    Quentin Tarantino, hailed as "the most inventive filmmaker alive" (Newsday), will debut his ground-breaking films Pulp Fiction and Jackie Brown on Blu-ray Disc this October from Lionsgate and Miramax. Two of Tarantino's most celebrated films, both titles were remastered under the filmmaker's direct supervision with new high definition lossless audio and 1080P video. Containing new bonus materials that delve into each film's iconic status, both discs are also packed with hours of archival content that includes numerous behind the scenes featurettes, interviews and marketing galleries.



    Pulp Fiction

    Called "one of the most wanted Blu-ray titles of all time" (IGN) and ranked as such on numerous critics' lists, Pulp Fiction is "nothing less than a cultural phenomenon" (Moviemaker Magazine). The film was honored with an Academy Award® for Best Original Screenplay (1994) and earned seven total nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director for Quentin Tarantino. It has also been listed as one of the best films of all-time by TIME andEntertainment Weekly.



    A pair of low-rent hit men, Vincent Vega (John Travolta) and Jules Winnfield (Samuel L. Jackson), are sent out to collect a stolen briefcase for their mob boss employer, Marsellus Wallace (Ving Rhames). Having proven himself worthy, Wallace then entrusts Vincent to entertain his wife, Mia (Uma Thurman), while he is out of town. Meanwhile, Wallace has paid off aging boxer Butch Coolidge (Bruce Willis) to throw his next fight. The lives of these wildly entertaining characters intertwine with unexpected and violent consequences.

    Fall is shaping nicely for Blu-rays. I can't wait to pick this and Jackie Brown up.

    Arguably Tarantino's best film -- and that is saying a lot. This will be a definite pre-order.

    Excellent news. Very happy to hear it.


    I first watched this film just a couple of years ago and was blown away. It really made me upset that I had waited so long. Tarantino has become one of my favorite all-time directors.

    I wonder if they'll include the reproduction of the Jack Rabbit Slim's menu (with the Five Dollar Milkshake) from the DVD. :cool:

    $19.99, very reasonable! I've had the Hong Kong release for sometime, but at that price, the special features and any possible presentation improvements would make a domestic purchase easy to justify.

    Not going to preorder just quite yet, too far in advance and I may be moving during that time. But will definitely get this and if through Amazon, will use the HTF link. Great news!

    I'm sure it won't be on the cover of the actual product but I'm shocked that the '10 cents' has even made it as far as the press release.

    The "10 cents" is even on the cover at the end of the trailer.

    This may be one of my most highly anticipated blu releases yet!

    I'd love to see the '10 cents' on there but I can't imagine that one of the bazillion lawyers at Lion's Gate, Best Buy, Wal Mart, Target, etc. won't tell them to remove it so some idiot can't try to say that the item is marked as 10 cents and they have to sell it for that much. I just saw Pulp Fiction in a theater about a month ago on a fairly nice print so hopefully the Blu-ray can come close that.
