I hope for your sake it does but I'd be surprised.  In this case delays may not be a bad thing.  More time may allow the additional scenes to be enhanced further, the restoration of the 20 minutes or so of other additional scenes mentioned by Scorcese and some interesting bonus features.

Just a guess but probably for the same reason that the new Blu-ray and DVDs are only being released in Italy at the present time.  The Leone family have only acquired the Italian rights.

 

that's what I was afraid of.

as soon as the restoration was announced, it said that the Leone family had acquired the Italian rights to the film, and I was unsure as to what implications that had for us in America.

But I have to (or want to?) believe that eventually, the extended version will be shown in America and released on dvd/br.

I'm just going to import it from amazon.it or IBS.it if it doesn't get a a wider release on BD.

Don't worry it will be released on DVD/Blu worldwide. Only a question of time. The idea behind all these restorations of classics is to sell them on the home video market .

Logically it should only be a matter of time and should be fairly soon following the renewed interest in the movie.

There are however things in the movie's past which have not been entirely logical. The movie wasn't released on DVD until 2003 and whilst Leone's family found the additional scenes in the early 90s, they had to struggle for 20 years to acquire the rights.

Screenings in theaters in France were planned but these have been cancelled and, outside Italy, screenings have only taken place at film festivals and special events such as Cannes, La Lumiere Festival in Lyon and the Locarno Film Festival in Switzerland.

I will definitely attend one of the upcoming screenings at the Film Forum http://filmforum.com/movies/more/sergio_leones_once_upon_a_time  (although i will first try to call to make sure they are showing the new footage).


I would like to go to one of the 7 PM showings between Monday-Thursday, I think cigar joe will be coming too; if anyone else is interested in joining, please reply here.

I am trying to call the Film Forum staff now.

I guess they will be able to give me  a proper answer after a day or two

A piece in Time Out New York this week:

At last spring’s Cannes, an even longer, 256-minute version debuted, adding a lengthy death scene from Antony and Cleopatra that Leone had chosen to cut. (Frayling’s verdict: “I adore Elizabeth McGovern, but she was not a Shakespearean actress.”) Warner Bros. has since taken this extra-extended cut out of circulation for unspecified legal reasons...

European theatrical version it is, then.

in that case I won't be there.

This article makes it seem as if the only scene added at Cannes was the Antony & Cleopatra scene; in fact, that scene is only like 2 or 3 minutes out of 20
