    Hi
    I have been looking for the extended version of Independence Day and was wondering if anyone could recommend anywhere to purchase it from. Seen a few versions on the web but there seems to be quite a few variations??
    Many thanks for any help

    there was a new version last year (which added a DTS soundtrack and last a chat track) it look almost identical to the prevous release. just look for the DTS logo on the back.

    The original release contained the theatrical and extended versions of the film via seamless branching but the re-release which includes the DTS soundtrack looses the theatrical version of the film and just includes the extended cut plus the menus are static on the re-release where as on the original they were animated.

    Many thanks for your replies,
    the main reason I asked is because on cd wow the dts version is 147 minutes long, on playusa the film is 153 minutes long, on play.com the film is stated at being 139 minutes long!!
    On korean dvds the extended version is 135 minutes long and on playasia it is 153 minutes long!!??

    I am slightly confused !!! Any help on where to get the fully extended version would be much appreciated

    Differences in the listing are probaley due to PAL Speed Up and some sites listing the theatrical version length instead of the extended edition length, here is some exact info though...

    Independence Day Theatical (Cinema) release Runtime = 2hr 24m 37s
    Independence Day Theatrical Edition PAL Runtime = 2hr 18m 49s
    Independence Day Extended Edition PAL Runtime = 2hr 27m 8s

    That is the one I have and if you have the set-up I guess the bonus DTS track makes up for loosing the animated menus and ability to watch the normal theatrical version.

    By the way, you can buy it from www.choicesdirect.co.uk for £7.99 delivered :thumbsup:
