    Vin Diesel Stars in Rob Cohen's Uncensored, Unrated Director's Cut DVD of Revolution Studios' Hit Feature Film

    XXX: Uncensored, Unrated Director's Cut

    The High Octane, Bonus Feature Packed 2-Disc DVD Streets on April 19

    Rob Cohen's hit action-adventure film XXX starring Vin Diesel, Samuel L. Jackson and international star Asia Argento comes back to DVD with a vengeance when the 2-disc DVD, XXX - UNCENSORED, UNRATED DIRECTOR'S CUT, is released on April 19, 2005. The release will feature a DVD first - a complete 1 ½ minute scene from the film's sequel XXX: State of the Union. The release from Revolution Studios and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment will carry an SLP of $24.96.

    Among the value added features on the Director's Cut DVD are 8 minutes of additional footage not seen in the theatrical version of XXX. The DVD will also feature "The Final Chapter: The Death of Xander," a four minute sequence with Khristian Lupo as Xander Cage. This bonus feature is a bridge to the film's sequel, XXX: State of the Union, also from Revolution Studios and which stars Ice Cube as the brand new Agent XXX, Willem Dafoe, Scott Speedman, Peter Strauss, Nona Gaye, Sunny Mabrey, Xzibit and Samuel L. Jackson. A theatrical sneak peak at this highly anticipated sequel is also included.

    SYNOPSIS
    Having worked together on the blockbuster The Fast and the Furious, Vin Diesel reunites with director Rob Cohen and producer Neal H. Moritz for XXX, the action-packed espionage thrill ride written by Rich Wilkes, from Revolution Studios which garnered more than $275 million at the box-office worldwide.

    Diesel stars in the original feature film as Xander "XXX" Cage, the notorious underground thrill seeker who until now has been deemed untouchable by the law. NSA Agent Gibbons (Samuel L. Jackson) forces XXX to cooperate with the government to infiltrate an underground Russian crime ring and avoid going to prison.

    Betting XXX can succeed where other conventional spies have failed, Gibbons sends XXX to enter this world of crime undetected, using his natural athletic prowess and a whole lot of attitude. Enlisted for a dangerous covert mission, he must combat a clever, organized, and ruthless enemy far beyond the scope of his experience. The fate of the world lies in the hands of a new breed of secret agent.

    I guess they forgot about the special edition of Resident Evil, which was released by. . .Sony. [​IMG]

    Now, shooting a new sequence with a new actor in order to kill off the original hero and make way for a new one -- that's a DVD first!

    No specifics from Sony on that yet. [sarcasm]I'm sure it's lots of gratuitous nudity and violence though. [​IMG] [/sarcasm] I'll post if I hear anything more (or get a screener).

    Well...its my 14-year old son who's a big fan of xXx. The answer to that question will guide me as to whether the longer version will be sanctioned or not.

    Sounds like there definitely IS some footage they could tap into for a true uncensored version.

    If it is never-before-seen, then it can't be from the original feature film. But semantics aside, I am wondering if the current extras are being ported over to this release, or if fans need both. Need may be too strong a word, but I liked this film mainly due to Diesel coming across as a nice guy.
