Just see it.

I get when they add 15-20 minutes to movies like 40 Year Old Virgin because it's just more jokes, or in the case of Anchorman where they compiled all the material from a subplot that was dropped.

But I never wished there was more of Big, as much as I enjoyed the movie as a kid.  And That Thing You Do was never good enough or bad enough that an extra 40 minutes would help it.

fuck Tom Hanks movies that are too long.

Sony released some extended editions a while back.  Tears of the Sun, A Knights Tale, The Replacement Killers.  Maybe a few others.   I think they're just reinserting deleted scenes into the film with little motivation except a double dip.  Notice that Big doesn't say "director's cut" or anything like that.  Its just an "extended edition."

Shouldn't there be some kind of campaign against this sort of thing? In some ways its worse than colourisation.

If it's done with seamless branching and the option to select orginal/extended then fair enough but you have to be concerned about the legacy and integrity of these films for future generations. Yes! Even the legacy of "That Thing You Do". Okay, maybe not that one. But definately Big!

Warner celebrates Jazz Singer with 80th anniversary edition
Classic 1927 film was the first to have synchronized dialog
By Laurence Lerman -- Video Business, 7/9/2007

JULY 9 | On Oct. 16, Warner Home Video will debut the DVD of the studio’s 1927 landmark movie The Jazz Singer, which was the first feature-length film to have synchronized dialog and musical sequences.

The Al Jolson-starring title will be issued in a three-disc 80th Anniversary Collector’s Edition that contains, among other things, a restored and remastered version of the film featuring a refurbished soundtrack, a collection of period cartoons, shorts and rare Vitaphone comedy and music pieces, a handful of early sound era shorts and the newly produced feature-length documentary The Dawn of Sound: How Movies Learned to Talk. The package will carry a list price of $39.98.

The Jazz Singer “is going to be one of the landmark releases for 2007,” said WHV’s senior VP of theatrical catalog marketing George Feltenstein, who’s particularly proud of the new documentary.

“The story of the emergence of sound and its early days is such a fascinating one,” Feltenstein said. “There were competing technologies, competing studios, lots of egos and differences in public taste and perception. Sound familiar?”

40th anniv edition of The Graduate

Fox is preparing an 11 September release of The Graduate: 40th Anniversary Edition. This iconic film starring Dustin Hoffman and the incomparable Anne Bancroft as Mrs. Robinson will have a new anamorphic widescreen transfer, both the original mono track and an upgraded Dolby Digital 5.1 sound mix, two commentary tracks – one with Dustin Hoffmann and Katherine Ross, and the other with director Mike Nichols and fellow director (and fan) Steven Soderbergh – a new retrospective documentary on the film and its influence, two new featurettes, two old featurettes, some screen tests, and the film’s theatrical trailer. And not to be outdone, this edition comes with a four-song Simon & Garfunkel soundtrack CD. SRP is $24.98.
