    Good news by way of Quentin Tarantino, he says in a giant interview that
    Personally, I think/hope that he ended up as a a good character actor in smaller movies and the occasional studio picture. Sorta like Lee Van Cleef or Lee Marvin where he kept working in good and bad movies and today, he'd be best remembered for having done some cool low budget movies in the 70's and 80's.

    Also, that interview is a must for any fan of the movie. Here's a link: http://thenewbev.com/blog/2019/09/tarantino-on-hollywood/

    For a 4 season series, isn't 48 episodes an awfully low number for a show of that time? Or was he not on the series every week? (I know it's fictional.)

    Thanks for the link! A couple friends of mine who have gone to see this film at the New Beverly, say that they try to have one of the actors there for a short meet and greet or intro or Q&A before the film. Last week or thereabouts the little girl Lancer actress was there, Julia Butters. My friend who went this week said Mike Moh was there. They showed an extended Lancer episode scene before the movie as an extra treat. Also the theatre has posters around for movies all starring Rick Dalton.

    Maybe I should go a third time! Last time I saw it (in 35mm) at the Vista Theatre, which is approaching it's 100th birthday in a couple years!

    I don't think that Bruce Lee himself would've reacted this way. I think her begging the Chinese government to not screen this inadvertently affects Lee's reputation as a fearless badass more than anything in this movie.

    (We should probably also burn every copy of Game of Death while we're at it, because that is WAY more actually-disrespectful to him.)

    I don't know about that as I can't get into the head of a man that's been dead for 45 years.

    I wonder if the re-release will hold up the 4k/blu-ray release, which was said to be set for Dec. 5. There's been no announcement at this late date, which is odd.

    How much additional footage does this extended edition have? In any case, I'll probably see it.

    Ten more minutes, according to the report I read.

    It's not a new cut of the movie. There is
    a pair of commercials (made for the movie) before the movie starts and a scene from Lancer and an extended scene from Bounty Law after the movie ends.

    The first commercial is a late 1960's Red Apple cigarettes ad and is narrated by Quentin Tarantino. The second is for Chattanooga Beer (Cliff's brand in the movie) and is narrated by what sounds like Walton Goggins.

    The scene from Lancer involves Luke Perry's character dressed like a dandy in a powder blue suit and top hat arguing with his character's brother (Timothy Olyphant). The Bounty Law scene is a longer version of what is in the movie with Michael Madsen.
    They're fun to see but everyone should go see the movie again because it's great and not because there's ten minutes "added" to it.

    I'll pass and wait for my pre-ordered 4K disc to see this again with the added minutes.

    I wouldn't blame anyone that waits. I knew going in that it wasn't a new cut but I hadn't seen the movie since last month so I just used it as an excuse to see it yet again. :)

    Hey, you love the movie. I'm not in that camp, but I did like it a lot.

    Not much interest in this re-release. On 1674 screens but only grossed about $550,000, or a per-screen average of around $330, worst in the Top 40.

    It’s really a brutal market for most films beyond a weekend or two. Most of the people that want to see a thing are conditioned to either see it right away or wait for home viewing. And the super short window between theatrical and home make this kind of re-expansion a difficult sell. I’d like to see it again too. But not so much that I’d pay more for a single ticket to see it today vs waiting a couple weeks to being able to see it at home for a fraction of that price.

    Was there literally any promotion for it? If it wasn't for here and Twitter, I wouldn't have even realized it was coming back out. On my way there, I thought I might be the only person in the theater (something that did happen one of the times I saw it late in its run) but by the time it started, there was 10 people. It was an older crowd who didn't look like they frequent movie sites online so wondered how they even knew about it.
