    Hi,

    The Godfather Trilogy is due out at the end of October 2001, or early November 2001.

    However, no extras have yet been confirmed, and, more importantly, it hasn't been decided if Paramount will release the three films as individual titles and as a Trilogy boxed-set, or if they will release the superior "The Godfather Saga", which was Ford Coppola's director's version. Essentially, he took all three movies, edited them together into their proper scenic chronological order (so you follow the story properly from beginning to end, with no confusion about a scene being set in the past, or in the future), and added another load of extra footage in as well, to boot!!!! The only problem, is that whilst this version is totally uncensored, both in its violent content, language and nudity, it was (as far as I know) only ever released in a 4:3 version, as it was prepared for a special US TV airing some years back.

    Personally, I'd like Paramount to release the three films in their, 25th Anniversary widescreen, with tons of extras, AND the "Godfather Saga" as well, in its 4:3 version, just as a bonus for those fans of Director's Cuts, and variants of films!

    What do the rest of you think?!

    "V" Great I have almost worn out my video collection, but it runs for much more than 10 hours.

    First is "V" The Movie parts 1&2 which runs for 192 Minutes.

    Then "V" The Final Battle which is around 270 Minutes

    and then you have "V" The Series which ran for 19 Episodes of 45 Minutes each !!!!

    Im gonna go see HANIBAL but hope so much it will be better than the book. The novel was the biggest pile of trash ever with the ending being something from a GCSE students bad english assignment. I understand the ending of the film has been changed, I just hope its completly changed rather than just tidied up.

    I have TERMINTOR on order and THE ABYSS as for some reason I never got round to getting the R1 version

    Duncan & Charles,

    Duncan, you are correct. When I said that "V" ran for 10 hours, I meant it as follows:

    V The Movie (Parts 1 and 2) run for about 195 minutes, minus ads, and was originally shown in two two-hour blocks.

    V: The Mini-Series, runs for about 90 minutes each part, with there being 3 parts.

    In the US, this is often referred to as "V", and is shown as ten one-hour episodes. Then there is "V" the series, that runs for 19 episodes, but which many people dislike, simply because it throws a lot of what made it great, straight out of the window! I didn't count the series in my calculations.

    Charles,

    As for "Dances With Wolves", I have no idea which version will be released. I hope it will be the Extended Director's Cut, that runs for 3hrs 40 minutes approx, but knowing R2 companies, they'll probably only release the bog-standard 3-hour version.
