There is reason to think that a Region A Blu-ray is coming soon, maybe by Spring of 2014: http://forum.blu-ray.com/showthread.php?p=8558489#post8558489 (Scroll to the top and hit the "show spoiler" button).

This is great news.  Hopefully the U.S. version won't have the compression and colorimetry problems of the Italian release.

Very little has been announced about the new version, release date, running time, regional coding etc. and no doubt we'll get some more definite information in due course.

There may be some good news.

It's recently been reported that the MPAA have given a R rating to the extended version of the movie.

This may indicate that Warner Home Video are making some progress in their plans to release the extended version in the USA.

I can't believe the article starts with "A rather uninteresting bulletin this week..." and then hits us with that incredibly interesting news.

Does the fact that this new version of the movie was submitted to the MPAA for a rating mean it'll be shown in theaters? I assume no rating is required for a DVD/BRD release....

According to Blu-ray.com, the extended director's cut is to be released in the U.S. on Sep 30, 2014.

http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Once-Upon-a-Time-in-America-Blu-ray/95062/

They state a running time of 269 minutes and posts at Blu-ray.com's forum seem to support this:

http://forum.blu-ray.com/showthread.php?p=9278009#post9278009

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is releasing an Extended Director's Cut of Sergio Leone's Once Upon a Time in America on Blu-ray this fall. The extended version features 40-minutes of additional footage, bringing the runtime to 269 minutes, and was supervised by the film's original sound editor, Fausto Ancillai. The Extended Director's Cut makes its U.S. Blu-ray debut on September 30th.

New artwork plus a book? Extended version on a single BD? Compression/color problems? Extra 18 minutes? Region A?

Another poster at Blu-ray.com has subsequently posted this:
Quote
Today, the Film Society of Lincoln Center announced today, that they will be screening the extended version, as part of the 52nd New York Film Festival, this September. Their press release stated that this version of the film "includes 22-minutes of restored footage, never before seen in the United States." This would indicated that the cut that will be screened, will be 251 minutes (229 + 22). Knowing this, I would be very surprised if the Blu-ray contains the full 269 minute cut.

 So, you might not want to get your hopes up.

The following link gives some details about the booklet accompanying the new BD -  a new 32-page book with rare photos and insightful notes that chronicle the movie's production history - and confirms that the movie will have its U.S. premiere at the 2014 New York Film Festival which runs between September 26 and October 12.  They contradict WHV's runtime figure but no doubt further information will be released in due course.

no, I'm definitely getting the  biggest best baddest one.

Yeah, I knew the 269-minute rumor was too good to be true. They'll save that for the NEXT re-re-restoration. For now, the best we can get is teh 251-minute version from Cannes. All we can hope for is that the new scenes will look decent.

Lots of chatter on the boards about potential compression issues. If there are 2 BD discs on the deluxe release, one for each version of the film, that means a single disc holding a 251 min. film. There could be artifacts out the kazoo on this--never mind the quality of the restored footage. Undecided
