The guys at The Digital Bits made my day, and probably my week.

New Line (via Warner) is releasing a Dark City: Director's Cut on DVD and Blu-ray Disc on 7/29 (SRP $19.97 and $34.99). According to the studio's press information, both discs will feature "enhanced picture and sound, never-before-seen footage and three commentary tracks that take you deeper than ever before into the world of one of sci-fis most exciting and revered tales." The Blu-ray will be a BD-50 disc, but we don't know what the audio format will be yet. Director Alex Proyas' new cut of the film runs 111 minutes (the original version was 96 minutes).
I saw this in the theater when it first appeared. I ought to do a writeup for it when the director's cut drops. There was evidence everywhere of serious post-production tampering, and it was still a terrific movie ... which is really saying something.
