I guess we'll have to wait until Apr-Jun 2013 to find out if Warners have finally given us the theatrical cut.

I'm not holding my breath...

Great thanks for posting. Got to be a branched presentation, its too big a release to fuck up. Hopefully they insert Lee's dialogue to the opening too. :)

Hmmm...
I agree with LS, I hope Lee's dialogue at the start is restored, John Little's impression is poor, even Bey Logan would have been better!
I've never seen the theatrical cut so if they find it and include it along with the SE it would be cool.

If I want impressions I'll watch a repeat of Dead Ringers.

When I say find I meant "restore" I guess, or just "If they can be bothered", not sure an HD master of the TC exsists :?
They seem to consider the SE the only version these days.
They'll probably have to "find" Bruce's audio for the monk scene (it has to be somewhere).

Hope they have good presentations. I'm keen to see whether ETD gets a remaster (the old BD was OK but not great).

I'm pretty sure their transfers for Audition and Ichi the Killer were poor though.

Finally. Bloody long wait though.

I'm amazed no one has released them here. They'd be sellers.

Hey,
I found a fandub of the monk scene which uses Bruce's real voice and the scene works SO much better, the audio was from a Japanese LP from the 70's I think:

ETD is due on June 11 BTW, and it seems yet more will be announced about it soon. Original theatrical cut would be nice, and a new commentary, the Paul Heller one is terrible.

It wouldn't occur to Warners to ask Bey Logan.
