too bad New Line merged into it's parent company Warner's since if they hadn't a DTS-MA soundtrack would have been included. As for the uncomfirmed HiDef release, the theatrical cut has been shown on Cinemax (I believe) in hi defination no less.

Definitely not. There was only ever talk of a ~3 hour cut that Malick himself was working on.

underrated film..not The Thin Red Line but still good. Suprised by an extended cut, even though I heard rumors.

Now if they can get an extended cut of TTRL

Kinda sucks that they are using the same artwork that was offered as a Best Buy exclusive, I already have that slipcover! Oh well, I'm a fan and will still buy it.

Yeah.

Originally Thin Red Line featured Adrien Brody as the main character, but in the end after Malick changed various things for the theatrical final cut he basically became a background character and Jim Caviezels character morphed into the lead (and Brody had no idea about this and didn't know until he saw the film at the premiere...heh)

So you can imagine how much footage the movie had. I think I read somewhere that an extra long cut of the film ran 5 ~ 6 hours in total.

Yay! Great news after holding out from spending around 40 bucks on the Italian PAL version!

Hey, I just got my copy and although there's supposed to be a 10-part documentary it is not on the back cover or on the disc.





On a side note, can the search function go through an overhaul or something? I had to go back 19 pages to find this thread...

Well, I guess that's good for compression - and the doc is on the old disc anyway, so no big deal. Still, it's annoying that this didn't get an elaborate release. It's obvious that New Line had this on the back burner and it's only now getting released due to the folding into Warner Bros. They really didn't care about this movie too much, did they?

So there's nothing new on the disc except for the longer cut?

So, how many versions of this movie are there? I've read 4, but the only ones I know of are the 135, 150, and now 172 minute cuts.

Wow, 37 minutes longer. Nice.

I have my pre-ordered from Warner. Hopefully, it'll get here soon. The New World seems like it would be demo quality for Blu-ray but alas no such release is on the horizon.

So with the 37 minute longer cut, that's great and everything but what is longer?
I hope it's not the ending of the movie when Pocahontas leaves her villiage. I thought that part up until the ending of the movie dragged on horribly.
Now if the extra 37 minutes is for the begining of the movie with added indian attacks then hell yea, that would be great. Needless to say I will be finding out for myself next week.
