ComingSoon.net is reporting that Miramax may be moving Quentin Tarantino’s sequel “Kill Bill: Vol. 2″ from February 20 to April 16, putting it up against Lions Gate Films/Artisan’s The Punisher. The film’s star Uma Thurman even mentioned the new date on the talk show “The View”.
If this release date move does indeed happen, we suspect that the studio will possibly look for a new date for The Punisher, considering the success of “Kill Bill: Vol. 1″ this October. That first film pulled in a big $163.4 million worldwide.
