I'm counting the minutes until Alien: Director's Cut is released. Anyone know anything about it? I hope Scott has found some way to incorporate the Coccoon sequence without ruining the movie's flow.

They seem to be doing a good job of keeping a secret whatever additions will be on the new cut... All I know at this point is its release date: this coming Halloween.

More as it happens...

I saw the trailer at the San Diego Comic-Con. Nothing was revealed, really. Pleased to see that they're making new prints (regardless of the extra footage). Too bad it required a gimmick to get this back into theatres.

Extra footage of Harry Dean Stanton saying "here, puss, puss, puss?"

I am looking forward to this very much too. Of course, I would probably prefer for Alien to just be re-released with no changes, but I'll definitely see it unless the flamethrowers are turned into walkie-talkies or anything like that! :) I'm sure it'll probably open with the new 20th Century Fox logo, but I'd love it if they just left the old 1979 one on, that's just how obsessive I am about Alien! (I was a little disappointed that the new Once Upon a Time in America DVD replaced the old Ladd Company logo at the beginning with one for Regency, I kind of got to the point where I thought of the Ladd company fanfare as part of the soundtracks of Blade Runner and Once Upon a Time in America, much like the 20th Century Fox Fanfare is as much a part of the score of any Star Wars movie as John William's Star Wars theme. This all sounds incredibly geeky and obsessive, I know!). I love the 20th Century Fox fanfare by the way! My least favorite studio logo is probably the one for Dreamworks (even though it's appeared in front of several films I like).

Even if Matchstick Men turns out to be a disappointment (far be it from me to miss a new Ridley Scott film, even if it looks rather mediocre), we'll have at least one great film by Ridley Scott in theaters this year.

I agree about the Ladd company logo...I have the director's cut DVD of Blade Runner but I still keep my old version VHS just cause its how I got to know the movie originally. The voiceover doesnt bother me as much as others. Its not obsessive about the old 20th Century Fox logo because thats how you remember seeing Star Wars in the theater when it opened...its nostalgia more than anything :)-MS

...much like the 20th Century Fox Fanfare is as much a part of the score of any Star Wars movie as John William's Star Wars theme.

My younger brother and I had the 8-Track of Star Wars (which essentially reproduced all of the audio from the movie for whatever reason I cannot entirely imagine). We listened to that repeatedly and, to this day, when I hear the majestic Fox fanfare, it takes me back to a simpler time.

A related story -- back when I "owned" a theatre upstairs at Scarecrow Video, I used to joke about starting a cover band that exclusively played the sixty-second (or less) themes from various studios and video labels. We'd theoretically tour the VSDA convention circuit. It could still happen, I suppose.
