Director's cut or Theatrical ? I hope FOX offers both cuts via seamless branching.

+1. I'd think this would be the case, especially given the entirely new (and very, very cool) cover art for this release: were it just the theatrical or extended, they'd likely repurpose the cover art from those releases for marketing consistency's sake. Here's hoping.

A really great feature would be a way to reedit the DC, which makes some improvements over the TC but goes far, far too far in literalizing the time-travel tropes (and changes some music around that worked well in the TC). Sounds reasonable, right?

the link shows "Widescreen 2.35:1 Color / Production Year: 2004 / Director's Cut"

I'd be fine with just the director's cut, would not be fine with just the theatrical cut.

Crap, I was hoping it's the original theatrical cut. I may have to re-consider... then again, the DVD's of both editions were dreadful.

I thought this movie was way over rated. I didn't care for it.

Yeah!

Must buy! I hope the song selection remains as originally done for each version, too!


And for anyone who has yet to see it, give it a shot. It will probably confuse you the first time around, but once you wrap your head around it, you'll love it. It has some really genius storytelling in it.


Actually, I wonder if the Director/Screenwriter was aware of the complexity of what he was doing. In some interviews, he just laughs about it all, but if you dig philosophy, this one offers very good food for thought.


I suddently got the urge to listen "Head over Heels", by Tears for Fears.
