That link doesn't offer any info that says so. It could very well be a steelbook and nothing more.

Well, could it, maybe, possibly, I dunno, be the words on the cover that say "Extended Action Cut"?

I'm not seeing it either.

However, I spoke with a contact who does PR for Paramount and he confirms the US Best Buy release does have the extended cut.

"US version at Best Buy does indeed have the Extended Action Cut".

Take it for what you will, but it appears it is a BB exclusive.

When I posted the link from BB's site a few days back it definitely had the pic of the extended cut, for whatever reason it appears to be gone now.

I'll probably pick up the extended cut, but I don't see myself paying more than $20 for it.

Well that is odd. Strangely, a post on the first page had the image but that too says "Image Unavailable" now.

Not a big deal, more curious about why it appears, disappears, reappears and disappears again.

Yeah, the picture is now appearing for me too. Maybe they were still negotiating the release (if it is indeed to be exclusive).

Re: G.I. Joe: Retaliation (Jul 30, 2013)

Info on the extra scenes, from Hiss Tank

Don't say we didn't warn you… because we are issuing a Spoiler Alert now for, the Deleted Scenes from G. I. Joe: Retaliation Blu-Ray has been revealed by a French website titled EcranLarge.com. This new info was first tweeted by Retaliation's Jinx herself; Elodie Yung.

These deleted scenes; which did not make the final Theatrical Cut, contains 13 minutes of new footage. Thankfully for us, Google is doing all the translation bits (with some minor hiccups). Check 'em out, after the jump.

"For its video release on July 31, 2013 GI Joe: Retaliation has a longer than discovered cinema installation. 13 minutes extra work proclaims the poster. We're not really surprised as the film has met with difficulties, culminating, many sequences having to be (re) turned. In film, the film was a big fiasco was disappointed almost all of the writing. This unique installation was he caught up? The answer is really yes, but not to the point of the film John M. Chu a great success. Besides proposing action sequences greatly improved (confrontation Storm Shadow Zartan-top), especially the long version allows to make the plot much more clear and logical. More importantly, it puts even more prominent our favorite movie, Jinx character, played by the French Elodie Yung, who had been completely sacrificed in the assembly seen in theaters.

A few details plans or near, here are the major changes made by this "extented cut."

- 3min 30s (duration: 1min 30s): Just after the first attack, and before the opening credits, we find the GI Joe at the bar doing a contest of who breathes the longest underwater. The opportunity especially for The Rock to discuss the new kid, Flint, that Joe is a team, not individuals. This is also an opportunity to see a little more Channing Tatum which closes the sequence casually.

- 5min 55s (3min 53s): In film, after the credits, one chained to the sequence Tatum and The Rock playing in the war on x-box. In the extended version, it is replaced by the sequence in Tokyo which introduces the characters of Jinx and Blind Master (RZA). This was, cinema, visible only in part, just before the attack on the mountain. And yet, she was connected in parallel with the sequence of Storm Shadow is making her injuries. Here it is presented in its entirety and we discover that it is, with the scene of the attack on the cliff, the best action sequence of the film. A bitter fight between Jinx and twirling, hidden, and Snake eyes, all in a very successful design. With the way some well fendards sermons RZA (" Jinx, to excel in the art of war, you must first find peace "). In addition, we now understand why Snake Eyes comes into play, his master, Blind Master, giving him the order at the end of the sequence.

- 15min 28s : In the first attack of GI Joe, there are now more mayhem such as Flint (DJ Cotrona) slides on the ground and kills two villains in quick succession (one in the movie version). Or these plans The Rock flinguant some enemies with his big gun or Tatum eliminating an additional opponent.

- 20 min 48s (27 sec): In the movie version, the (false) President went straight into the bunker to find the truth. Extended in this version, he was arrested en route by a ... kid armed with a plastic gun. A not very funny gag that should have remained unpublished.

- 45min 49s (24 sec): Snake eyes is not alone to observe the release of Cobra Commander. Jinx is with him to help. Although obviously, Snake Eyes does not accept too well the situation as shown in the end of the sequence. A scene that explains why Jinx then the jeep next to Snake Eyes on their way to the monastery.

- 51min 06s (40 sec): Healing of Storm Shadow in the monastery now has the right to the full sequence, and no longer found, as in the movie version mix some with combat-Jinx Snake Eyes.

- 77min 51s (1min 02s): A Rock, it bleeds and it is sew Jaye (Adrianne Palicki) extended version. With the added bonus of a verbal dispute between Flint and Roadblock (Dwayne Johnson), the first accusing the other of attacking solo, unlike the teamwork he advocated in the first added to the new assembly sequence.

- 87min 51s (52 sec): The arrival of the Cobra and ordered his minions is now at the same time a U.S. president's speech to his counterparts in other countries. An addition that allows you to better link the sequences together and avoid the mess of the cinema release.

- 90min 50s (18s): The Joe into action and begin to eliminate the bad guy.

- 99min 39s (64 sec in two parts): Jinx frees prisoners and fights. Trapped, she is rescued by Snake Eyes and between them they eliminate their opponents hail of bullets mode.

- 100min 51s (2min 15s): A true compared to the sequence view room. The clash between Storm Shadow and Zartan (in president mode) does change significantly, it is much longer, and dramatic logic (we do not fight Storm Shadow by him just falling pieces of wood on it). As a bonus, we have the right to a surprise guest who complicates the fight.

- 111min 27s (18 sec): Once defeated enemies, on the beach, there is the conclusion of the relationship between Snake Eyes and Jinx. Is a brief exchange of sword which shows that the black ninja finally accepted his partner."

So it's a few mins of extra footage. What I thought. No big deal, I won't be paying much more than I would for the regular edition for it.

Hmm. Sounds like it's the original cut of the movie prior to the reshoots and 3D conversion. I'll wait 'til it's less than $10.

Don't know how accurate the Amazon UK listing is, but it says the Extended Cut is 122 minutes. The theatrical cut is 110 minutes.

Is anyone here going to pick up both versions?

I already got the theatrical cut through "work", but will also pick up this extended cut, especially since I also have a $5 RZ cert so it'll make it $10.
