Extended Edition Of Once Upon A Time In America Set For Blu-Ray Release This December

Though only announced for Sergio Leone’s native Italy as yet, the newly-restored, extended edition of Once Upon a Time In America will reach Blu-ray this December. According to the press release the film will run 246 minutes, in spite of Amazon’s 244 minute listing.

The disc will contain English language audio in 5.1, with Italian in just mono. There don’t appear to be any special features.

This extended edition premiered at Cannes this year but ‘disappeared’ in the late Summer when itwas pulled from the Melbourne film festival at the last minute. Buzz was that it needed more work, particularly on the audio. I assume that has been completed now.

While many are going to refer to this as Leone’s Director’s Cut, what we’ll be getting is only a rough estimation of what he may have been intending, reconstructing missing material rather than going back to an earlier, vaulted version.

Of course, I’m massively curious about this extended version no matter the details of its provenance. If a US or UK release isn’t announced soon – though I expect it will – I’ll just grab myself the Italian disc.
