Re: TV version of Wrath of Khan available?

I downloaded the ABCTV version seven years ago, but I don't remember where.

Oh, common ... the first post is almost two years old, I honestly didn't remember it! I didn't even realise that this thread was that old!

Re: TV version of Wrath of Khan available?

Epic bump!

I kind of like the TV cut of the lift scene. The widescreen version is probably more subtle, as Shatner is over-egging it a bit here, but it's cool to see.

Was the Saavik-David stuff ever included in the TV cut? Has it ever been properly released, along with the infamous "captain Sulu" line, and confirmation Saavik is half-Romulan?

TWOK really needs a proper restoration, with seamless branching for the Director's Cut, and a full deleted scenes package. Get on it Paramount, you cheapskates.

+1

And no, none of the David/Saavik stuff or the Sulu promotion ever made it to any released cut of the movie.

A little of two deleted made it into that Showest trailer and then onto youtube.

Re: TV version of Wrath of Khan available?

There also was an alternate take of the Genesis team discussion in the ABC version that I prefered.

Isn't the version in the DE an alternate take, too?

Yes, absolutely.

The take from the ABC version is longer has different camera movement and has a few more lines of dialogue at the end and was the one they used for the Director's Cut

Re: TV version of Wrath of Khan available?

I don't know if any mention of torrents is against the rules or not. Since this version was shown on TV, it doesn't seem like there would be a problem, since copying movies from TV is legal. Too bad all the torrents of this I can find are down. I really am bummed that I can't get it anywhere I love alternate versions of my favorite movies. I'm really digging the deleted scene thread.

Although, to be sure, the theatrical version wasn't really chosen for the current Blu-Ray release because it's necessarily "superior" to the Director's Cut in any fashion (or "worse," either, for that matter).

It's more that the release represents the time-dishonored tradition of the studios putting out near-barebones versions of theatrical editions, followed later by "deluxe" Director's Cut (or multiple-cut) releases down the road.

It's simply Paramount giving itself "multiple bites at the apple," as it were, and is the exact same strategy that they used back in 1998-99 for the initial, barebones DVD releases.

Well, yes - I didn't state otherwise.

Although it's also worth noting that these movies were first released on Blu Ray nearly five years ago, and the exact same discs have now been re-released multiple times since, without even the slightest hint that Paramount is in any way interested in revisiting any of them for "deluxe" editions.

I honestly don't think it'll happen either. Not on Blu Ray anyway. I reckon the next time they do revisit these movies it will only be for NetFlix or some other online distribution medium. The days where optical media are still profitable will not, I think, continue for very much longer. At least not long enough for Paramount to consider taking that "second bite of the apple".

The TV version has that wonderful extended argument between McCoy and Spock. I videotaped it many years ago, then made my own version where I "spliced" in those scenes into a widescreen copy.

Isn't that same extended scene also in the Director's Edition?
