Major Dundee (Extended Cut) R1 Update
Last week Sony Pictures Home Entertainment announced an extended cut of Sam Peckinpah's Major Dundee for 31st May 2005. Since then the title has disappeared off the schedule, with no further announcements made.
This may have something to do with more elaborate plans SPHE have for the title, as discussed here on The DVDForums.
Keep reading DVDTimes for confirmation of release details just as soon as SPHE make them available, for now though here is the original information released by the studio...
Major Dundee (Extended Cut) - Sam Peckinpah's first big-budget film was also the first to be taken away and released in a shortened version. But now, 40 years later, most of the missing footage has been located and reinserted with the entire soundtrack remixed in 5.1 Dolby Digital, and a completely new score composed. The new scenes complete the electrifying depiction of an oppressive Union officer who leads a squad of Rebel prisoners, ex-slaves, and criminals into Mexico to hunt down a band of murdering Apaches which raises the question: who represents a greater threat?
