Simple Question 11 Jul 2001 11:38 #1844

  • 's Avatar
I know this sounds like a simple question and maybe it is but I'd just like to see if I've got it right. When a movie is re-issued are any changes made to it or does it just mean that its being brought back by popular demand? I don't think that there are any changes. Am I wrong?

I have always thought that a re-release is simply that -- a reissue of a previous release. When there are new special effects or a remastered soundtrack, or even the addition of new scenes, then that is usually promoted quite heavily Of course, I have been in airports for ten hours today, so I might be out of it...

A re-release may involve making new prints, or just sending out the (hopefully) best of what is already on the film exchange's shelves. Used prints can be "rejuvenated" by rewashing the film and putting a UV-cured coating on the base to remove dirt and "heal" scratches.

A "restoration" usually involves finding the best printing elements for a film, and repairing any physical damage (e.g., digital removal of dirt particles, wet printing to hide scratches), soundtrack improvement, and correction of fading. New prints are then made. Recent examples include "Rear Window", "Vertigo", "Snow White", and "Lawrence of Arabia".

Sometimes, "directors cut" scenes are added. In rare (and sometimes controversial) cases, new scenes are added (e.g. "Star Wars" trilogy).

Up to the releasers. Apoc. Now Redux has 1/2 hour more added to it. Psycho was cleaned up. Spy Kids comes out again in August with new stuff.
