Any chance you will eventually reissue the standalone Blu-ray (containing both versions, ideally) with the new color-grading for those of us who do not have UHD 4k players or displays?Some updates regarding our upcoming 4KUHD release of THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY:
NEW color grading was applied to BOTH the Extended version (4KUHD) and Theatrical International version (Blu-ray). The color grading will now be consistent between both versions of the film.
We also restored the 2.0 Mono audio, going back to the 1993 MGM laserdisc PCM monaural track.
Disc 2 (Blu-ray) – Theatrical Cut
A 4K scan of a 1967 35mm IB tech print is the secondary source for approximately 10 seconds of content that is not present in the extended version of the film. This comprises of 5 shots total:
A) The optical flip ending in Tuco's neck back around the noose. (Timecode 01:24:13:03- 14 frames)
B) Tuco shoving the "Open/Closed" sign into the storekeeper's mouth. (Timecode 01:37:46:20- 5 seconds, 10 frames - this was cut short in the 2017 Kino theatrical version)
C) An extreme closeup on Blondie's eyes shortly before Tuco's gang comes barging through the door - features a hidden jump cut that is present on both the 35mm IB tech print and the Laserdisc release but not in the extended cut - (Timecode 01:41:54:15- 1 second, 14 frames- not present in the 2017 Kino theatrical version)
