Well I guess it's no longer "just a rumor":

I saw the original in the theatre and thought it was "OK" at best. I bought the "Widescreen" DVD when it came out but haven't got around to actually watching it yet... Now this is coming!

Nice coverart. Yup. And that's about it.

So they added 14 minutes of additional footage. I did enjoy the film, a fun watch but not sure I'll bother with a double dip.

Maybe I'm the only one but I would really like to see this. I just wish they would rerelease Even Horizon to tag along, but we'll have to wait for Next year for.
Thanks

Oh, I'll see it, but most likely as a rental.

I'll pick it up. I enjoyed the first release. It wasn't the greatest movie, but enjoyable none the less.

I hope it's not just 14 minutes of added footage, but instead a complete re-edit of the film.

Wishful thinking, I know.

I just hope all 14 mins is Predator and Alien stuff...don't try and develop those pathetic characters anymore.

I think I remember reading that a lot of it is character stuff. Sorry. And a little bit of violence as well. I haven't seen the film since theaters so I will give it a rent at least.
Thanks

I watched the beginning of the movie last night and thus far most of the additional stuff is character related. I stopped just as they entered the pyramid so I can't say much more.

I got this yesterday. I didn't watch the new unrated cut yet (next week after I watch other DVDs). I mostly looked at the extras on disc two (a little featurette on the DOP fearing the cameras would be destroyed after one did get destroyed while filming a scene, and a little looking around the discs). I don't like AvP, but I think the extras are going to be great on this 2 disc CE.

You know those directors who constantly say that the reason their film was bad was because of the production company and not them? Well, this is one of those directors. While I liked the gore and action, the movie itself was not that good. I bet the director will never take credit for a film that is not in good standing amoung the fans. He always puts the blame on someone else. That being said, the coverart is neat, but I am not all that sure if I would want to pay again for the movie. Is any of the content exclusive? No.

OVERALL: R1
2-disc "The Unrated Edition" has the both "Theatrical" and "Unrated" -versions of the film, and all extras from the other releases (original R1 has some minor DVD-ROM features, and R4 Extreme Edition has "Making Of AVP" - featurette, which could be exclusive). Also DTS is included.

DVDCompare is not entirely correct. For some reason, Fox has left off almost all the previous deleted scenes from both the R1 and R2 versions. From the reviews, we only get 3 deleted scenes on this release, while the old international versions had like 10.

I'd have to assume that they ended up in the extended cut, as opposed to being "left off". That's just speculation, but it seems pretty likely.
Don't you ever, EVER compare me to "Family Guy," you hear me Kyle? Compare me to "Family Guy" again and so help me, I will kill you where you stand!

Do you have any idea what it's like? Everywhere I go: "Hey Cartman you must like 'Family Guy,' right?" "Hey, your sense of humor reminds me of...

Absurdity! I remember when this movie came out, the director specifically mentioned that there was barely any material left over and ruled out the possibility of a director's cut or an extended version because of it.

And now we're, what, eight months down the road and he's releasing a director's cut?

Actually, it was quite the opposite. P.W.S. Anderson talked up the fact that there was missing footage quite a bit. See this article, for example.

More Alien and Predator carnage, that's the only way i'll double-dip for this one.

Wow, Damin, thanks for that link. That completely contradicts my memory. I wonder if the article I read pre-dates it (that is, pre-dates the mandate to cut the film three weeks prior to release) or maybe I'm just confused.

Either way, that article got me interested in seeing the new cut, provided it's the kind of deal that Anderson discusses in the article. More carnage with all the human death scenes restored, explanations of the descrepencies between AvP and the rest of the franchises... this stands a fighting chance.

So, the issue is, is this really his director's cut? Are these things back in there? I'd really appreciate some details from the guys who've bought it. Cheers!

Except for the reviewers who have the DVD, no one will see the new version until it hits store on Nov 22nd. I have other DVDs to watch first before I get around to watching the Unrated AvP sometime during the week.
