Romier S Posted February 21, 2004 Report Share Posted February 21, 2004 Posted over at the digital bits: http://www.thedigitalbits.com/#hell Morning folks. I wanted to jump in early with a bit of interesting news from director Guillermo del Toro about the forthcoming DVD release(s) of the forthcoming Hellboy. In an interview over at Countingdown.com, del Toro reveals that the film will be released as a movie-only edition in August, and then as a fully-loaded 2 or 3-disc special edition in December. The SE will also include a longer version of the film, as well as "a special box with a bust of Hellboy with the gun." Nice. Here's to hoping the flick rocks. Cudos to Bits reader Imran H. for the spot and link. The interview in question: http://countingdown.com/features?feature_id=3368843 CD: How long is the current cut of the movie? GDT: 1 hour, 50 minutes. CD: Is it gonna stay that length, you think? GDT: It will stay that length until the DVD, yeah. CD: Did a lot of footage get cut? GDT: We cut 45 minutes of the movie. I think that the final cut on the DVD will probably be 2 hours and 10 minutes. We're including a lot of scenes that are more permissible to put back after the movie's release, because if someone is buying the special edition, they want to see more. As opposed to trying to be prudent...I think that an action-adventure movie shouldn't be longer than two hours, but that's my opinion. Very similiar to the Lord of the Rings releases. Looking forward to Hellboy (and hoping its good). Glad to hear we'll be getting a good DVD. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
