Hopefully, this isn't another Sony "film classic" that goes from "delayed" to "TBA" (such as the fate of A Matter of Life and Death, which was originally scheduled for release on 5/24/2004.)

They're passing extras for an R2 release of this at the BBFC, and from the looks of those, plus the comments made by Sony's Grover Crisp to Robert Harris at The Bits, it looks like they made a late decision to bolt on a good deal of extras to make this a mouth-watering SE, hence the delay.

Yeah, I was mad that this was pushed back but if it comes back better, then that'll be ok, I guess. I'll just have to wait another 3 months for this Although waiting really sucks.

According to DVDAnswers, this will be coming out on August 30th:

Columbia has re-announced the extended edition of Major Dundee, but this time with extra material! The Sam Peckinpah directed film, will be available to own from the 30th August, priced at around $14.94. The film itself will be presented in anamorphic widescreen along with both English Mono and English Dolby Digital 5.1 tracks. Extras will include an all new extended version with fourteen minutes of never-before-seen footage, an audio commentary with four Peckinpah historians, deleted scenes, behind the scenes featurettes, a photo gallery with production stills and posters, and the films original theatrical trailer.

Sounds Great! This movie was on tv this weekend on AMC, so I caught a bit of it, didn't have time to catch it all though. It looks good. Now i'm really going nuts waiting for this release. I had to go to the Mall and buy The Professionals and The Undefeated yesterday just to take my mind off of it.

For this I don't mind waiting. I am not, however, trading in my VHS copy just yet.

I see now that this release has been pushed back to September 20th. Any ideas as to why the delay? I sure hope that we're not going to see a repeat of the DUEL/ED WOOD situation!

Yes, they're holding it back to remove the documentary dealing with tranvestites in the military.

Seriously, though, I believe it's still making the rounds theatrically through the ****ry, so they probably just don't want to eat into those profits.

I always thought Richard Harris was just a little too concerned about his appearance in the film.... And this would explain the tension between him and Charleton Heston.
