THE FIRST AMERICAN HERO ARRIVES ON BLU-RAY WITH AN ALL NEW DIRECTOR’S DEFINITIVE CUT

http://static.hometheaterforum.com/imgrepo/

LOS ANGELES (Aug. 6, 2010) – Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment today announced that THE LAST OF THE MOHICANS will debut on Blu-ray Disc Tuesday, Oct. 5, featuring an all-new director’s definitive cut by acclaimed director Michael Mann (Public Enemies, Heat, Manhunter) and new interviews with two-time Academy Award&reg-winning actor Daniel Day-Lewis (My Left Foot, There Will Be Blood).

Based on the literary classic by James Fennimore Cooper, THE LAST OF THE MOHICANS takes place in the majestic mountains and awe-inspiring forests of war-torn Colonial America. In the midst of a bloody battle between British, the French and Native American allies, Cora Munro (Madeleine Stowe, Twelve Monkeys, We Were Soldiers), the aristocratic daughter of a British Colonel and her party are captured by a group of Huron warriors. Fortunately, a group of three Mohican trappers, including Hawkeye (Day-Lewis), a rugged frontiersman and the adopted son of the Mohicans comes to their rescue. A passionate romance soon blossoms between Cora and Hawkeye, but many forces test their love as they continue to journey through the Frontier.

THE LAST OF THE MOHICANS DIRECTOR’S DEFINITIVE CUT will be available for the suggested retail price of $34.99 U.S. / $37.99 Canada.

The Last of the Mohicansi release is just one aspect of Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment’s yearlong campaign to honor the studio’s 75th birthday. This year the division will debut several select fan-favorites on Blu-ray for the first time ever including Alien Anthology, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, William Shakespeare’s Romeo + Juliet, Moulin Rouge!, and The Sound of Music.

    This has probably been discussed ad nauseum

    elsewhere, but what is the main difference between

    the theatrical and director's cut?

    I am sort of surprised given that this is Blu-ray that

    both versions were not included.

    Ron,


    Walter Kittel posted this link in another Last of the Mohicans thread.  It provides a very detailed comparison of the two versions:

    They are listing a run time of 114 minutes.  That's two minutes longer than the theatrical and three minutes shorter than the last "director's cut".


    I guess we can call this the "box of chocolates" version.


    You never know what you gonna get.

    I wouldn't say "never", but I'm definitely not buying this version until I read some very thorough reviews.

    I will probably pick this BR up as this is my favorite DDLewis movie along with My Left Foot. But I will still keep my laserdisc

    for the theatrical cut.
