Kurt Russell: "Moviegoers Will Regret 'Grindhouse' Flop"

Kurt Russell has warned moviegoers they will regret not savoring the recent Grindhouse movie because there will never be a cinema experience like it again.

The double bill helmed by Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez aimed to replicate the grindhouse experience of the 1970s by showing fake trailers between the two movies--but the films will be released separately for its European theatrical release after a poor showing at the U.S. box office earlier this year.

And Russell, who starred in Tarantino's installment Death Proof, is saddened by the audience's response.

Speaking at Cannes Film Festival, he says, "There will be no movies made in the next five years like Planet Terror and Death Proof. These two movies are going to go off with a life of their own, but my prediction is that 20 years from now, you'll want the Grindhouse experience. You won't want them separately.

"For the full effect, the other experience is something bizarre that I've never experienced before and I like the short version."
