Red band trailer for the Reservoir Dogs Blu-ray and DVD.
Six criminals, who are strangers to each other, are hired by a crime boss Joe Cabot to carry out a diamond robbery. Right at the outset, they are given false names with an intention that they won't get too close and concentrate on the job instead. They are completely sure that the robbery is going to be a success. But when the police show up right at the time and the site of the robbery, panic spreads amongst the group members and one of them is killed in the subsequent shootout along with a few policemen and civilians. When the remaining people assemble at the premeditated rendezvous point (a warehouse), they begin to suspect that one of them is an undercover cop.
After a simple jewelery heist goes terribly wrong, the surviving criminals begin to suspect that one of them is a police informant. The movie opens with six men dressed in dark suits (Mr. Blonde, Mr. Blue, Mr. Brown, Mr. Orange, Mr. Pink and Mr. White) eating breakfast at a diner, accompanied by Joe Cabot (Lawrence Tierney) and his son, 'Nice Guy' Eddie (Chris Penn). Mr. Brown (Quentin Tarantino) discusses his comparative analysis of Madonna's 'Like a Virgin' and 'True Blue' while the rest listen. When they are going to leave the diner, Mr. Pink (Steve Buscemi) expresses his anti-tipping policy. Everyone disagrees with him, but Mr. Orange (Tim Roth). Then they leave the diner accompanied by 'Little Green Bag' by George Baker Selection.
