Quentin Tarantino’s Rolling Thunder Pictures Triple Feature comes to DVD April 16th from Lionsgate Home Entertainment and Miramax. This DVD compilation offers a sampling of films from the specialty label Rolling Thunders Pictures, which was launched by Tarantino and Miramax in 1995 to release older exploitation movies and undiscovered imports to the mainstream movie-going audience.
Tarantino brought these films back to life, even personally recording intros and outros for the home video releases. The release of Quentin Tarantino’s Rolling Thunder Pictures Triple Feature coincides with the home entertainment release of Tarantino’s latest, Academy AwardÂ® winning film, Django Unchained. A must-have for Tarantino fans, this classic collection will be available on DVD for the suggested retail price of $14.98.
