    I have heard that the European and Japanese theatrical release versions of KILL BILL will show the crazy 88 fight scene in color, instead of black and white. Any truth to this?
    Does anybody know if the first DVD will have an option to view it in color, or if there is any truth to the rumor, should I wait for region 2?

    Well, let me just say that it wasn't in colour here in the UK...can't speak for the rest of Europe of course!

    The Japanese cut is the fully uncut one, so I would wait for that one.

    Europe has the B&W scene not colour. from what I heard and from reading some interviews with QT it seems like Japan R2 and maybe some R3 will have the crazy 88 in colour and some added scenes.
    US and Europe ahev the same versions though.
    I just hope that HKR3 or Thai R3 will be uncut as the JapR2 uncut will be horribly expensive.

    And why this difference exists? Why one is in black and white and the other in color?

    Apparently the MPAA didn't enjoy the amount of blood flowing in the Crazy 88 fight, so to protect our fragile little minds, it switches to black and white. Check the sanitized bloodless trailers as well (the Vernita Green fight and the ridiculous now "black" blood on the Bride's Yellow jumpsuit). Supposedly Tarantino said it was supposed to be this way, but then I question why the Japanese get a full color version.

    I wasn't particularly fond of the first part, so I'll wait until the combined release (if the second part is decent at all).

    Just my two cents.

    Personally, I think it's absolutely ridiculous that Kill Bill will only be uncut on the Jap DVD. The arrogance of everyone involved in that decision astounds me.

    For QT to claim that the extra-violent cut is some kind of 'thank-you' to his Japanese fans is all very well, but what about the other few-hundered-million fans who might quite like to see his work too?
