Re: Leon - The Professional - November

I'm not sure I believe that. The extras were all made for a DVD that solely contains the TC and they talk about the alternate cuts in the features...

Re: Leon - The Professional - November

How difficult can it be to have both versions with seamless branching on a BD-50? If true, this is a big disappointment.

Sony usually opts for the extended/dir cuts too it seems. Very disappointing if true... every other source had it as both cuts... hmmm.

Theatrical only? Pass. I much prefer the longer cut.

Well, it's not like "the bits" hasn't been wrong before. Maybe there's still hope.

Re: Leon - The Professional - November

Doesn't make sense. I don't think they've released the Professional standalone w/o Leon since the original DVD over 10 years ago.

They've never released them together in the US at all, and the last three DVD releases of the movie were the longer version (standard, non-SE DC, Superbit DC, SE Superbit DC).

No way is it just the theatrical cut. No one will buy it if that's the case.

Re: Leon - The Professional - November

Sony USA's website lists the running time for this release as 242 minutes, which just happens to be the total of the TC and the DC added together. Hmm.

Won't buy if it's just the TC, but I'm not convinced yet that it will be.

That's right..for some reason I was thinking the last black cover DVD release had the theatrical cut included.

No way this BD is the Professional. It has to include Leon.

Re: Leon - The Professional - November

I thought so. Just look at the amazon listing:

"Run Time: 242 minutes"

1h49 + 2h13 = ???

Amazon listings for unreleased items constantly have incorrect information. I'll lean toward believing The Bits until I see some hard evidence to the contrary.

How about the simple fact, as I already stated, that no one will buy this if it's only the U.S. theatrical cut? Seriously. That should be proof enough - not based on my word - but based on the fact we all know it to be true. Fans of this film will not accept that.

Bill Hunt isn't exactly the bastion of accurate early information either. I suspect he got some bad info and jumped the gun on this one.

I suppose the Lord of the Rings are coming out then with the extended versions?

Sure seems that way actually. They delayed/canceled the Theatrical Cuts set.

They were delayed (not canceled) for monetary reasons, not so they could release them with the extended cuts.
