The Game: SE finally??

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Well...the following extras have just been passed in the UK by the BBFC:

00:02:17:11 THE GAME
00:01:31:08 THE GAME
00:00:57:03 (THE GAME TRAILER - TEST FOOTAGE)
00:29:04:16 (THE GAME - BEHIND THE SCENES)
00:09:27:07 (THE GAME - ON LOCATION)
00:01:09:06 (THE GAME ALTERNATIVE ENDING)

as well as a commentary.

This looks to be most of the extras from the Criterion laserdisc and I'm guessing they've been licensed for this other release. I'm assuming we'll get this here as well.

Never seen this movie, but I've heard alot about it. Fincher, for me at least, is kind of hit or miss. Thanks for the update.

I've never seen it either, and I'm a fan of every other Fincher movie that I've seen...so I'm definitely looking forward to this if it ever comes to be.

I'd definately double-dip on this when it comes out. If the import isn't that expensive (cd-wow), I may go ahead and go that route.

Can't wait. I just wish Criterion was doing it. I still prize my Criterion LD of THE GAME.

Releasing this as a SE makes complete sense, it stinks it has not been given it's due yet.

In case anyone wonders about the Alternate Ending

Spoiler:
Nicolas is leaving the hotel when the doorman asks him if he wants a cab. He says "I don't think so", and walks off

I always heard that the alternate ending was:
Spoiler:
He briefly talks to Christine, and before her cab pulls away she hands him a note. Standing there alone he reads the note and it says "Welcome to Phase 2".


I have no idea if that was ever filmed, but I remember hearing about it somewhere.

There's many possible endings Fincher wanted to go. One was that the game never ends at all (which would be fitting for what you said).

I may or may not be interested. I don't really like the director, either.

That's the second time you've mentioned that, digi. You better see a doctor.
