FEATURING AN ALL-NEW DIRECTOR’S CUT OF THE FILM
IN ADDITION TO THE ORIGINAL THEATRICAL VERSION,
DEBUTING ON 4K ULTRA HD™ NOVEMBER 14TH
SYNOPSIS
All his life, people have told Rudy he's not good enough, not smart enough, not big enough. But nothing can stop his impossible dream of playing football for Notre Dame. From the time he's a young boy, Rudy (Sean Astin) is determined to join the Fighting Irish. But his blue collar family only laughs at his ambitions - they know Rudy will follow his father and brothers to the local steel mill. And, for four long years after high school, he does just that. But some dreams won't die, as Rudy proves when he goes to heroic, occasionally hilarious, lengths to win admission to Notre Dame. Once there, he becomes a walk-on player, serving as little more than a human tackling dummy against the starting players. Bloodied but unbeaten, Rudy wins the respect of legendary coach Ara Parseghian and the other Irish players, who give him one shot at gridiron glory. An incredible true story from the creators of Hoosiers, RUDY is an unforgettable testament to the power of dreams and the triumph of the common man.

Is this in error? Are they really going to have both cuts, commentary, deleted scenes, and the theatrical trailer only on 4K? This is a significant upgrade.

Isn't this a bit expensive??

I didn't pay attention to the price until you brought it up.

Yes, it's very expensive despite being a SteelBook.

I would highly expect this to drop at least $10 by release day.

My code only redeemed for the theatrical cut. Director's Cut requires an additional purchase at most retailers.
Hmm, my old iTunes HD digital that I purchased in 2019 for $4.99 upgraded both film versions to 4K/Dolby Vision with 5.1 multi channel audio along with some bonus material. I don’t use those other streaming services unless I have to use them.

Anyhow, what you noted is something I’ve been complaining about the digital format for years. The lack of uniformity across the services with their digital files has not been addressed by the industry. Frankly I don’t think they care that this home video format isn’t maximizing its potential and quality.

I don’t see a directors cut available for purchase. My old copy of Rudy now has new extras including the Directors Cut (both in hd at the moment).

And on the Apple TV app on non-Apple devices (such as Roku), you only have access to the theatrical cut.

This is another example of corporations not caring about their customers, at least not to the extent that they cared many years ago.
