I really liked the tc of the movie so I will definately have to get my hands on this. Aside of the bad reviews it got, I personally think its pretty good.

techinally 4 cause the european cut was different also

Close Encounters of the Third Kind
This film wasn't even remotely good. Even the battle sequences were drawn out.

I suppose Blade Runner now falls into the 3's club (sorry 4's club) with the theatrical cut, the International cut, the Directors (rush job) cut, and the Final Cut.

Anyone else no of films that have been released in 3 or more different versions?


Would the "Star Wars Trilogy" (IV, V, VI) count?


I was going to include the Star Wars films in my previous reply but I deleted it all. It's too much of a mine field even if you disregard the Special Editions because there are 2 versions of those as well. Plus episodes 4-6 had slight changes to them in and around their original releases so no, I just didn't want to go there. Any other films with 3 or more versions commercially available (excluding Star Wars) is fine for the purposes of my query.
I love Oliver Stone, Alexander wasnt the best film but it didnt suck as badly as everyone says it did.

What about Dawn of the Dead?
-Theatrical cut
-Extended cut
-European cut

thankfully though, their all included in the Ultimate Edition although I think they were released separately too.

T2 on HD/BR, (theatrical cut only when extended version is available). I pity the poor wallets of the early adopters.


It's funny you mention T2 and then say three cuts is unheard of as the Ultimate T2 had three cuts of the movie on it.  Very Happy

Do HD/BD support seemless branching?  This is something I would like to see done more.

And here I was thinking I was clever by picking up both the theatrical and (so called) directors cuts up for 5 quid each.

This is all really tish and fipsy though isn't it? The directors cut was shorter then the theatrical version. It was supposed to be a tighter edit and what, with a little more time to view it objectively, Oliver Sone wanted. By being able to shorten it, he must have believed that it did play too long and now less than a year later he's saying, 'Nah, actually it could do to be another hour and a half longer.'

Still, it's his movie so screw it. Lets be avin' it then. The longer the better.

Then they can release the theatrical onto HD-DVD and wait for fans (sorry fan) of the film to moan about not having the directors cut. Then a few years down the line, the extended cut will be released and fan will still moan at the lack of a true directors cut. Cynical? Moi?

They're already doing this. Lethal Weapon on HD-DVD (theatrical cut when the directors cut is already on DVD)

T2 on HD/BR, (theatrical cut only when extended version is available). I pity the poor wallets of the early adopters.

I don't know, off topic again.
it's the studio's cut bot Oliver's
Alexander: Super Extended Director's Cut
Working Subtitles are...

a.) 4more hours you will not get back edition.
b.) With footage we found laying around edition.
c.) Buy this to show you are not homophobic edition.
d.) Rosario Dawson Edition.
e.) Stone Edition (with enhanced grassy knoll footage).
f.) Trying to make an epic out of a molehill edition.

How can it be bogus if Stone made it?  This was a bad, bad movie and I doubt there is anything you can really do to make it a better movie.  It started with bad casting and just got worse from there.

so hold on a min...they are releasing an extended cut AFTER releasing a director's cut (meaning the way the director originaly had intended to show in theaters but could not for whatever reasons)? So does this make this release NOT a director's cut but rather just a longer version of the film? I mean because if the director actually wanted this in his film wouldn't he just throw it into his own cut? Man, this is making my head spin.
and the 4 hourt cut wil be brill

Nope, there was a director's cut that cut out a few homophobic scenes though.

Oh yes, I did, sorry about that.

I love Oliver Stone, yet I hated the theatrical Alexander. Then again, this could be another Kingdom of Heaven DC. Hmmm...

Decisions, Decisions
OH NO!

4 Hr Oliver Stone's "Alexander" is coming to disc!
I found this interview on Oliver Stone, and he says he doesn't want to waste the unused shots and scenes he took for "Alexander", so he is going to release an extended cut to DVD.
