On the 2001: A Space Odyssey Blu-ray, they actually preserve the intermission built into the original theatrical presentation.
Yes, I also recall the intermission in "2001" - and another school excursion, to see "David Copperfield", in the early 70s. When the "Intermission" curtain dropped, the teachers suddenly realised we'd be late for Sport, so we had to leave the cinema and head back to school. Crazy!

the only movie where there was an intermission was Gods and Generals.
No.

Lawrence of Arabia
Gone with the Wind
Spartacus
Ben-Hur

These are just the ones in my collection. I'm sure there are others. And many such films also had introductory music (sometimes approaching 8-10 mins. long) with no image or a static image. Unimaginable in today's frenetic world, but rather impressive in its day.

A little longer than the last one. Good.
i think this one might be longer than the motion picture or at least on par with the run time of TMP.
The theatrical version of TMP ran exactly 5 seconds longer!!
ooh 5 seconds.

It reads to me like a response to your previous post concerning the difference in runtime. (I've emphasized the pertinent parts in the exchange for clarity.)

Yeah, I guess, but I started this thread with a very plain post with nothing but the exact run-time of the movie so as to inform anybody who was interested---which I hope it did.

Then the thread kind of turned to banter about holding in ones pee--which is also kind of to be expected, but when someone actually is interested in the subject (runtime) compared to the other longest movie I decided to look that up.

Well it turns out TMP happens to be 5 seconds longer--so to be informative--I post that--- finding it somewhat what that they clock in at so close a runtime.

Then he posts the oddly sarcastic "Ohh 5 seconds longer" with the roll eyes.

I kind of wonder what is the point--since he clearly he doesn't understand how or what the roll eyes means.

He's rolling his eyes because i found out the two movies are 5 seconds different?

I kind of thought it was a slightlyinteresting fact to know.

Two movies in the same franchise that couldn't possibly more unlike each other besides the characters in them, separated by 33 and a half years----and 5 seconds!

First thing I thought of when i read the new movie was 132 min was, "Does, that make it the longest trek movie?" I'm glad to know i wasn't alone in finding that interesting.

Although, i guess it was only worthy of an eye roll from him!

Re: Exact runtime verified.

How did you know about the runtime to the second? I read about it clocking in at 132 minutes, but how did you know about how many seconds more or less?

By the way, German cinemas are giving a runtime of 129 minutes. I thought the PAL speed up only affects tv and dvd?

I posted a link on my opening post from the BBFC British Board of Film Classification.

They review every theatrical (and video) release of every movie released in the UK (down to the second)

That is also how I went back and found the exact running time of the theatrical version of TMP from 1979 (they've been doing this for a hundred years!) Not on the internet of course!

There are allowances for the video version because of the PAL system they use but theatrical versions are always the same.

There are some times as in Avengers where they throw in few seconds more for the US (schwarma scene) but generally it's exactly the same for current new releases.

As for the German release--I'd bet a few bucks it actually turns out to be the same 131- 58 as the UK version.

Also, since in recent years the UK gets some movies before the US---I can find out weeks in advance what the running time is going to be. We don't have an internet site for the USA that does that in any case. The get reviewed in final form and get a rating from the MPAA but they don't post the running time for the public.

I see, maybe I should have checked your link first ...

Since this is the runtime from the UK, NTSC is not an issue anyway. Gotta keep an eye on the FSK site, which is the German equivalent to the BBFC. They still don't have STID listed there ...

Re: Exact runtime verified.

So, the German FSK runtime is up:

24 fps: 132 Min 35 Sek
25 fps: 127 Min 17 Sek

Almost certainly the differences in time are related to the credits and not the content.

For examply I just within the last 10 minutes learned the the BBFC has classified the movie AGAIN at 133min 07 sec------1min 09 seconds longer than before.

The 2D and 3D versions are both listed at 131min 58 sec.

Fairly certain this longer version is the IMAX version---same cut with altered credits. Perhaps the formating in IMAX forces changes in the speed/layout of the credits.

At any rate that now makes STID the longest theatrical Trek movie.
