Honestly all three of the different covers arts are horrendous. I am disappointed.

Lol at people “disappointed” at cover art, like it matters. Good ole first world problems. Can’t be happy to have the UHD, always have to find dumb stuff to complain about.

The cover art is fine, because you don’t watch the cover. I just solved everyone’s problem.

That appears to be exactly what we are getting. I'm surprised no one has really keyed in on this, yet, but the new release does seem to include the U.S. premiere version (approx. 146 minutes, of course), which would not be the Euro cut (1:59:38) or the subsequent US cut (2:23:46) which has been released on video. In other words, the 4K will actually contain a third cut of the film, that has not been seen since 1980. Hence the specific detail in the press release:

Quote:
The 4K remastering is of Kubrick’s original 146 minute version of the film which premiered in the United States on May 23rd, 1980.
And IMDb has this to say about the missing footage:

Quote:
Originally Posted by IMDB
Three days after the release of the film, Stanley Kubrick and Warner Bros. ordered all projectionists to cut about 2 minutes from the end of the film, and send the footage back to the studio.
[Show spoiler]Starting after the closeup of frozen Jack, the camera goes to a pullback shot with part of a state trooper's car and the legs of troopers walking around in the foreground. We then cut to the hotel manager Stuart Ullman (Barry Nelson) walking down a hospital hallway to the nurse's station to inquire about Danny and Wendy. He's told they're both doing well and proceeds to Wendy's room. After some gentle conversation, he tells Wendy that searchers have been unable to locate any evidence of the apparitions she saw. Additionally, Jack's body cannot be located. We then cut to the camera silently roaming the halls of the Overlook Hotel for about a minute until it comes up to the wall with the photographs, where it [back to the ending as it is now known] fades in on the photo of Jack in the 1921 picture.
In other words, it sounds as though everyone will need to hang on to their Blu-rays, not just those with the European cut.

I'm pretty surprised that WB are delivering a cut of the film that Kubrick did not approve of, but perhaps the use of the U.S. premiere cut is seen in part as a way to get round having to issue both of the two previously available cuts of the film instead.

Woah...so it may well include the OG ending? Some of the people who were kvetching up a storm about the deleted ending earlier in the thread will probably shit themselves at the mere mention of it.

The Cannes screening is on Friday so we’ll know by then. It depends on the wishes of the estate (Jan Harlan/Christiane Kubrick).

It'll be great to finally see that original ending, but it's kind of weird not to also include the 144-minute version, since Kubrick himself made the decision to cut that scene (sort of like Sergio Leone with the grotto scene from TGTBATU).

And yes, I know Kubrick also edited the 119-minute version himself. But in the case of the 144- vs. 146-minute cuts, it's one sequence that could be easily seamlessly branched.

As soon as I received Warner's email I jumped here to comment!

I don't want to get my hopes up. They do mention the original premiere running time and the exact day of the release. But they don't make a big deal out of this, when this is MAJOR news. Let's hope for the best!

Guess I was too hopeful after they included the 70mm mix on 2001 they might use all the original mixes for all of Kubrick’s films.

That was more of a special case I think re: Chris Nolan's involvement. For all the grief I've apportioned to him - rightly or wrongly - for how the restoration of 2001 turned out, only he would've pushed to get the OG mix featured on the new disc of 2001.

Pretend for a moment that I don't know anything about metallurgy, engineering, or physics, and just tell me what the hell is going on: If they're supposedly doing all 146 minutes in 4K with HDR, how hard/expensive would it be to provide the the classic American & Euro cuts (which have no additional footage AFAIA) as well with seamless branching?

There seems to be some Overlook-styled kookiness in that press release.
