    Anyone know if ST II: The Wrath of Khan theatrical cut DVD will remain in print after the 2-disc director's cut is released next month?

    It's Paramount, so my guess would be "No".

    From DVDFile:

    And in Star Trek news, Paramount will not be discontinuing the current DVD of edition of The Wrath of Khan - the only way to get the original theatrical version of the film - to make way for the upcoming two-disc special edition, which includes a new extended cut of the film. Both will remain on the market, so you can take your pick...

    Anyone know what the "extended" footage includes? I remember the TV broadcast of it a coupla decades ago. Most "new" stuff involved Scotty's nephew (that obnoxious engineering kid from "Escape from Witch Mountain") but I don't remember any new rants by Khan or posturing by Kirk...you know, the good stuff.

    Thanks!

    The Peter Preston footage IS good stuff

    The scene between Scotty and McCoy in Sickbay is fantastic. Why both with the theatrical cut? This is the way is was supposed to be

    Sorry, but I never liked the Preston stuff much. The theatrical version IS the best version. I think I'll hang onto it.

    Nick Meyer had always regretted cutting the footage, he's said so in several interviews

    This is sorta off topic, but if you like the "expanded" version of ST2, you really ought to read the novelizations of both ST2 and ST3. These are very, very good and delve deep into the stuff the movies barely touch, like the Peter Preston subplot and the David/Saavik relationship.

    I'm looking forward to a review of this. Hopefully very soon we'll see one!!!
    The novels were great. Yes they included a lot more of the background as well as David & Savvik.

    I hope they color correct the Director's Cut. THe current version has a brown-reddish push that I don't think was intended.
