    itle: The Replacement Killers
    Starring: Mira Sorvino
    Released: 25th April 2006
    SRP: $19.94

    Further Details:
    Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has also announced a new extended cut of The Replacement Killers which stars Mira Sorvino, Chow Yun Fat and Jurgen Prochnow. This Antoine Fuqua directed film will be available to own from the 25th April, and should set you back around $19.94. The film itself has been digitally remastered for the best possible quality picture and sound, and has an additional eleven minutes of footage. The full spec list has yet to be revealed, although we can confirm the addition of all the features on the previous release (featurettes etc). We've attached a small shot of the official package art below:

    I haven't picked the special edition but am having a hard time deciding between the special edition and the extended edition, if you were deciding between the special and the extended, which would you pick or would you pick up both?

    Sony's really pushing it. I bought the "A Knight's Tale" extended cut because I always wanted to see Chaucer's stocks speech put back in, but I'm not biting on "The Patriot" Extended Cut or any of their other double dips.

    Like the film but think I'll wait for a review to see if it is really worth it or not......

    Once again, the question of director involvement pops into my mind. Has the extended edition been supervised by Antoine Fuqua, or is this just something thrown together by someone else and a sort of 'Alan Smithee' situation. Knowing Sony, I think I know the answer.

    Anyway, I like this movie, but I'm not giving into their ridiculous double-, triple-, and quadruple-dipping when they insist on sitting on so many Hammer films.

    There's nothing wrong with the current version. It's best just to leave this one alone.

    Based on Fuqua's commentary from the last version, it really sounded as if those cuts were made by the studio. If I had to guess (which, I suppose, we'll all have to do by 4/25) I would say that the extended version is closer to a director's cut than the theatrical version.

    The one I'm worried about is CON AIR. Anyone have any info on Simon West's preferences?
