lost footage? Lynch and the people that made the film always touted how special it was that Lynch got full creative control, so i'm surprised that there was certain scenes that weren't inserted into the "always directorial cut" at the beginning.

i hope he doesn't insert them into the film, as i've seen it enough times to fully know it as a whole. deleted, or "special" scenes in the extras would be much better.

I'm getting my information from the site below.

http://hcc.techradar.com/playback/co...-ray-release-2

From that site:

Lynch has often claimed that his initial edit of Blue Velvet ran for a producer-worrying four hours and he was forced to trim it down to a more managable two hours for release. However, while stills from some of the missing scenes and the script containing the excised material have been readily available, Lynch had not located any of the missing scenes themselves until now. Having found some of the missing material in Seattle, he told radio listeners, 'It's incredible. I'm seeing stuff I thought was gone forever. And hopefully, some of those scenes some of them aren't worth putting back together will end up on the new Blu-ray'.

If it's put back into the film then they could use seamless branching to have the theatrical and an expanded edition and thus please everyone.

wow. well so much for the extras of the DVD about the great story behind the making of the film.

Cult filmmaker David Lynch appeared on US radio last week and finally spilled the beans on the Blu-ray edition of Blue Velvet, which will be getting a release from MGM in the States later this year.
i hope it's announced very soon.

yeah that's what i'd like. if the extended cut ends up being 3 or 4 hours, it would be an entirely different picture. i have great curiosity now.
