Wikipedia's Film Editing page defines many of these cuts. I will try to summarize the questioned ones here. Editor's Cut: An editor's cut (sometimes referred to as the "Assembly edit" or "Rough cut") is normally the first pass of what the final film will be when it reaches picture lock. Additional: The article says that editing starts right after ...

James Cameron has been asked this a few times in the past weeks to the release of the movie, and he has said he did not want to change anything about the movie past adding 3D. However, it seems he admits to making a change while interviewing with a British magazine Culture. James Cameron resisted temptation to cut scenes he was no longer happy with when ...

There are 4 different endings: Theatrical Ending: Evan travels back to the birthday party where he first meets Kayleigh and whispers to her "I hate you and if you ever come near me again I'll kill you and your whole damn family." Kayleigh runs away crying.   After a montage of his memories disintegrating, Evan returns to present day ...

I'll admit I'd never seen it in cinema, so I was unaware of some of these bits. The only reason I could see to cut those bits would possibly to alter the censor ratings, it's a well known fact that sometimes films (and tv series) when rated get given one thing for cinema/broadcast but when they are put onto a media format sometimes the show/films wants to ...

I did a little bit of online research on this, and it would appear that the American distributors considered the movie too long, complicated and controversial and employed the playwright Channing Pollock to make a new version. The American release was considerably shorter than the original (at 115 minutes it was about 25% shorter than the original) and ...

Well, there is an alternate ending, which is available on the DVD release. From Kotaku.com (there is a video of the alternate ending on the site): In the theatrical version, Eddie has apparently managed to kick the brain-enhancing drug, although we're never entirely sure if he's grandstanding. After Robert De Niro threatens Cooper's new political ...

The gimmick in Gremlins 2: The New Batch with the projector is actually inspired by the film The Tingler which first introduced it. Apparently The Tingler was screened in theaters and in drive-ins. When the film went black, a voice warned: Ladies and gentlemen, please do not panic. But scream! Scream for your lives! The Tingler is loose in this theater! ...

I don't quite get what you meant by, I found it weird that the first ending would not compromise the other (it's like a happy ending where the viewer doesn't know what happened to his mother or to the main character's "gift") Anyway, the way I understood is this: The original ending was the ending which Evan was in a psychiatric hospital- he is in a ...

The theatrical version of a movie is the one that was originally shown in theaters. Thus it is the cut of the movie that the studio thought would be best for the most moviegoers. An extended version or uncut version has scenes added that were filmed but cut out of the theatrical version. Most often, it is created to entice people have already been to the ...

I know you may not want to hear this, but is it possible you're mis-remembering things? It would be against the law for the film to be released under a different cut on home video without it being re-assessed by the BBFC. As you can see on their website, however, no changes were made. (The running-time difference due to the change in frame rate from film ...

No. Commercial breaks happened (presumably) during mundane events or periods of inactivity. The clock would pick up again when they returned from commercial break. The clock never ended at 42:00, it always ended at 60:00.

Not a definite answer, but I could find no indication that there ever was a director's cut of Jackie Brown (or any other version that differs from the theatrical one). However, there are a few deleted scenes that are included on Bluray and DVD: Extended scene with Jackie/Sheronda in the mall's food court. Extended scene with Jackie and Ray in the ...

Short of finding a magical, perfectly preserved version of Disney's original Pinocchio and paying someone to master a DVD/BluRay/Digital copy from it, you don't really have many (if any) options and you're going to have to settle for something. Low-quality VHS copies (and even DVDs) can't be made better quality. If Disney decided to do some repairs to the ...

I'm going to say no. Firstly, on this IMDB page, some of the differences between the versions are listed. The scene you refer to is described: In the original television version, there is more dialogue in the "no shirt, no shoes, no dice" scene. Spicoli says "I have uno nickel-ette...and a pick". He then makes up a story of how Mick Jagger gave ...

The Wikipedia article for the movie states that: The original American release of the film shows Hammer and Velda escaping from the burning house at the end, running into the ocean as the words "The End" come over them on the screen. Sometime after its first release, the ending was crudely altered on the film's original negative, removing over a minute's ...

IMDb is usually the place to find such information. 1 hr 39 min (99 min) (theatrical) (Germany) 2 hr (120 min) (Berlin International) (Germany) 1 hr 34 min (94 min) (DVD) (Australia) There do appear to be other versions floating around. This review (and others) suggests that at least one DVD release was only 89 minutes long although the ...

This fantastic post over at IMDB explains the differences in a lot of detail (given its length, I've chosen to just link to it rather than copy and paste it in its entirety). Edit A summary of some differences (note, the link above is far more comprehensive and descriptive). This is intended for all people who have seen the US version and are wondering ...

I am not sure, there seemed be some subtle differences in the sound and several short reaction shots early on that I don't remember from previous viewings. All my previous viewings have been Regal or AMC, this is the first time I have seen it at Cinemark. Their different sound system may be making me imagine differences that aren't there. If there are ...

The Theatrical Cut is the version of the film that was shown at cinemas. The Director's Cut is the version edited by the Director, usually for additional home media releases. An Extended Cut is usually any version of the film which is longer than the theatrical cut (though in very rare cases, its shorter). Which one you should pick is an opinion that's up ...

I don't know if it was ever included in a print of the film, but I found a "documentary" that played on Nick at Nite on YouTube that is exactly the footage you are describing:

Firstly, people in different parts of India speak different languages, so, If a movie is made with reputed cast and crew then the producers are likely to dub the movie in different languages such that people all over India would enjoy watching movie in their native language. Also remember that the movies with high budget are the ones mostly get dubbed in ...

Whilst it is no longer 'common' for films to be produced in different languages, as the dawn of the 'sound era' of cinema this was standard practice. The original Dracula is the most notorious version of this: During the day MGM would shoot with Bela Lugosi, then in the evenings the Spanish crew would take over the set and continue filming with Carlos ...

Sometimes yes but they tend to be short or single runs in more 'art-house' cinemas or as part of a collection of director/actor movies ran together. I saw a 'Blade Runner' thing like this as part of a Ridley Scott appreciation thing a few years ago.

I also can confirm that the church scene was censored in Latin America. I saw the movie in Utah and then last night in Panama. The church scene in Panama only included the first woman Galahad shoots, cuts of Eggsy's reactions, Merlin's reactions, a couple of guys thrown around from Galahad's POV, Valentine and Gazelle's reactions, then cut to Galahad ...

Schnittberichte.com lists five (2004 version) or eight (1989 version) different German versions, all of them cut to some extend, to make a realease in Germany possible. The reason given for the ban (actually just not giving the label of "not suitable for youth" (~fsk 18) ) of the uncut movie is given as "wegen exzessiver Gewaltdarstellung und ...

No. TV producers don't shoot more material to fill time on DVD releases that would normally go to commercials.

Read the 4th paragraph down in "The Movie Itself: Our Reviewer's Take" section; there is rumored to be a 3 hour version, but given the failure of the movie to break through at the box office it is unlikely that version will ever be released.

I just did some searches in German and found no definitive information but claims that the German TV version had cuts, not of sex scenes but of graphic depiction of drug withdrawal. According to Wikipedia, the US/UK cinematic version had 4 minutes cut, which would make its runtime 134 minutes. Then again, I also found numbers for the runtime of 124, 136 and ...
