Default Stripes - Different Versions?

Since all of my devices don't do Apple TV yet I only purchase movies there that are MA. Saw Stripes was on sale for $5 yesterday (and was the "extended cut") so I made the purchase. Didn't show up in Vudu. After looking into it it appears that that Vudu carries only the regular cut and Apple//Fandango only carry the extended cut. Think this is the first time a MA movie isn't available at all the retailers for me. Are there others like this?

always check to see what a retailer carries, if they don't have it, it won't port. another case of this is Underworld, the theatrical doesnt port to itunes, only the unrated cut since thats all they offer.

Generally speaking iTunes will usually carry various cuts of movies that have them. Stripes for instance will feature the 'extended cut' and the theatrical in the extra's portion.

and that's the fact Jack!

Made the same mistake you did. Wish I had seen this thread a couple hours ago. It is ridiculous that films get broken up into different versions.

Off the top of my head:
  • Stripes - Extended Cut (theatrical does not port in)
  • Underworld - Extended Cut (as mentioned by kannibaliztik) (theatrical does not port in)
  • Hancock - Theatrical (extended does not port in)
  • Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby - Extended Cut (theatrical does not port in)
  • Fifty Shades of Grey - Theatrical (extended does not port in)
  • Fifty Shades Darker - Theatrical (extended does not port in)
  • Fifty Shades Freed - Theatrical (extended does not port in)

I'd also throw in "Vixen: The Movie", as it's a MA movie, but iTunes carries it as a TV Show, so does not port in/out. I own a (different) movie in MA that Amazon lists as a TV show, but it will port into Amazon... just in the TV section of your purchased items. iTunes apparently doesn't do this.

I own the theatrical cut of "Stripes" from when it was free on FandangoNow years ago, as well as 4K versions of "Underworld" and Talladega Nights. Neither ports in.

Also, the movie "The Joneses", an MA enabled title does not show up in your iTunes library. Last year (I think), it appeared in my Apple library for a few weeks, then disappeared again.

"Stripes" Theatrical Cut just ported into my Apple account earlier tonight.

I guess I should start talking about how I never have any winning Lotto numbers.
