Eurospy Title Kiss Kiss Bang Bang Rescheduled For This Month
A few months ago we heard that Wild East (primarily a Spaghetti Western distributor) had another Eurospy movie on the schedule: Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, a very silly spoof that turns up as the second half of a Giuliano Gemma double feature with the Spaghetti Western Alive or Preferably Dead. The set is called Spies, Fast Guns, and the Spaghetti West. Gemma is better known for his Spaghetti Westerns than this rare foray into Eurospydom. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang is a particularly daffy Italian spy spoof. Your enjoyment of it will depend on your tolerance for that uniquely Italian brand of silliness, but it's very Sixties and definitely lots of fun to look at throughout, at least, so genre aficionados will likely find something to enjoy. Of course so few Eurospy movies get official releases that most fans (like me) will jump at anything. Especially when it promises a 16x9 anamorphic widescreen transfer! According to Wild East, this will be the first ever English language release of this title. (Officially, anyway.) Spies, Fast Guns and the Spaghetti West, which also features the films' theatrical trailers, was originally slated for a November 8 release. It didn't make that one and was biefly slotted for December 6, but is now listed for a December 20 street date—just in time for Christmas! A glitch on the Wild East website made the title originally appear to be sold out before it was even available, but that was not actually the case. Wild East's editions are strictly limited and they do go out of print, so you shouldn't hold off on buying if you're interested... but as of now it is definitely still available! Also, the price has dropped since the original announcement. It was first listed for $19.95, but now you can grab this bargain for just $16.28 by pre-ordering through the Wild East website!
