We might actually see Eli Roth’s The Green Inferno this year

Aaaand lookie here! Ryan at Rhino’s Horror has some news about Eli Roth’s very, VERY delayed release (it was supposed to open in early September of 2014, and the movie made its festival premiere at TIFF in 2013, so it was already kind of overdue) of The Green Inferno! As you may recall, the long-awaited theatrical release from Open Road was bumped just weeks before it opened. Apparently the plan is still to release it in theaters, due to a change in management at World View. Read on for more information on Roth’s estimated theatrical release date…

Last year, as we approached the September debut of Eli Roth’s much-anticipated The Green Inferno, it was pulled from its release indefinitely due to some behind-the-scenes bullshit. Now, after many months of silence and leaving fans in the dark, Eli Roth spoke up about the film’s fate.

Eli Roth’s The Green Inferno: See The First Official Trailer (And Official Release Date) Right Here In HD!

I am sorry to report that this is a “green band” trailer; and also it appears the movie has been trimmed down enough for an R-Rating (though knowing Roth, he’s not going to let all that Nicotero practical FX work go to waste and we’ll get an unrated version on DVD).  Check out the promising first official trailer below in glorious HD:

We have a bad feeling that some of the footage shown (you can probably figure out what) is from a female circumcision* scene that fortunately does not go all the way. First time I’ve appreciated an Eli Roth film NOT showing something.

Plus…

THE Official Release Date for The Green Inferno is:

September 5th, 2014!

Which is still too goddamned long to wait! Well, hey, we’ve been waiting over a year, might as well wait a few more months. Damnit!

*AAAAAAAAAAAAAGGH! In a Women Studies class in college, they showed us all actual film footage of one, performed with a BROKEN BOTTLE, that scarred me (and probably everyone else there who hadn’t seen it before) for life. A few people bolted out of the auditorium, including one of the few guys in the class. My brain also protected me by deciding to black out the last half of the footage from my memory, but trust me, it was bad enough.
