Hello, while searching the Internet I found some interesting news in a German dvd-board called cinefacts. There was a thread about an Extended Cut of Ridley Scott's movie Black Hawk Down. It says, that this DVD will be released on the 6th of June and that there is an announcement in a big online shop called axelmusic. Unfortunately, I'm not allowed to post any links until I've reached fifteen posts and therefore you must search the site on your own (the announcement is still on the welcome page). May be there is someone in this board who has more info's about this DVD?

If this does happen, it sounds like a cheap money grab to me.

The cover sucks and I bet its just some deleted scenes put back in the film. Sigh. I'll keep my SuperBit.

3 discs wasn't enough? Great film, though. I'll try to put up a review if this version makes it to the US.

Whatever. I have the 3 disc version and I'm more than happy with it.

Unless this is uncut... I'm sure the MPAA cut the film to ribbons. About ten minutes of gore sounds about right, if consistant with their other practices.

Remember this is Ridley Scott, the master of unnecessary DVD director's cuts! He will probably apologize or disown the cut on the DVD itself! .....again! Posted Image

My 3 Discer is enough. Nice set and plenty of material.

Aren't there like 3 Region 1 editions of this film on DVD already? I'll pass.

Unless there is a history of Scott bemoaning that his directorial vision on this film has been compromised, this version, at this time is just plain ignorant. This should of been in the 3 disc ultimate edition.

I'm completely happy with my 3 discer. I'll pass on this unnecessary ploy to separate me from more of my money.

WOW, this is unnecessary. This is more unnecessary than the new Congo coverart.

What I already know about this release, is that it's simply just a single disc version of the film with only one of the bonus features from the 3 disc set, the same transfer (albeit with approx 7 minutes of extra footage), and the same 5.1 sound. No dts track. If you already own the 3 disc set, don't even consider this release. Unless of course you feel 7 minutes of footage is worth 20 dollars.

Unless I'm mistaken, those seven minutes are also included on the original 3-discer.
