Although the split of 'Kill Bill: Volumes 1 and 2' was a lucrative venture for Miramax, Quentin Tarantino's assassin's revenge tale was meant to be one uninterrupted, giant smorgasbord of pain. The unrated, uncut version of the film, 'Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair' -- which contains the two volumes, plus missing material from the U.S. and international versions, some of which was included in the Japanese release -- premiered at Cannes in 2006. One thing the festival's audience didn't get to see was an animated addition to the violent saga that takes place during O-Ren's revenge chapter.

AICN reported that for one week, New Beverly Cinema–goers will have the opportunity to catch 'Kill Bill' in all its glory, including the segment produced by Japanese anime studio, Production IG. If you dig anime, you've undoubtedly heard of these guys -- they worked on 'Ghost in the Shell' (watch after the jump) and other big titles. The studio's animated piece was created for the movie's original theatrical release in 2003, but after things got sliced in half it was left behind.
