Before anyone complains, the extended cut was announced BEFORE the first blu-ray came out.

Well considering this movie is just awesome, I'll probably double dip and not give it a second thought.

i loved this movie ill double-dip once its a descent price but if they were going to release a directors cut, i really wish they would have released it a little before the sequel got released, so it would come with a free movie ticket would have been a much better deal

It wasn't exactly announced, it was "planned" which plans frequently get cancelled or delayed, long-term, in Hollywood. I'll be double-dipping if the price (or retailer discounting) is right, like it was for Rambo.

The price better (but won't be I'll bet) be reasonable, like $14 or less, since it took so damn long to come out & most everyone who Liked it, prob already bought the movie after waiting a few months for this (which now comes out what, 2 YEARS LATER??!!)

If I can get this for a low enough price, there's plenty of room for it on my shelf right next to the theatrical cut. I have both cuts of Rambo 4 as well. The separate releases don't really bother me (though both versions in a single release is obviously the preference).

I'll get this if they include the 2 real trailers that they left off the first release. One of which is show above. That marketing archive was full of crap and Guns n Roses and had no Shinedown. It was very disappointing. Enjoyed the posters and TV spots though.

It was fun but wildly disappointing, if you catch what I'm saying. The last 30 minutes or so were exactly what I was expecting, but it was just too little too late by the time it to go that point.

Terry Crews and his shotgun of death nearly single-handedly saved the movie, though. One of the best moments in action film history.

Didn't care for the original cut like most did, but I am interested in the Directors Cut. I thought Rambo was improved with its new cut, maybe Expendables will too.

Interesting but I don't double dip on Blu-ray; did that enough on DVD. I'm very happy with the initial BD of The Expendables so I'll stick with my copy, thank you very much.

As a completist, I enjoy having every official version of the films I enjoy, and I knew going into buying the theatrical cut that a DC was down the road. I've got no regrets, and I look forward to buying this version! Right now, all I have is a crummy, non-anamorphic DVD-R I recorded off of TV this past spring!

As for having both versions on one disc, doubtful. Like Rambo, there are so many alterations peppered throughout the film, both in audio and video, that it would be nearly impossible to have seamless branching.

does anyone remember the cheesy 80's? well I do and like watching some of those films. I gave this movie a chance and thought it was a good enough film. don't hate Sylvester he's 70 years old and spent like 3 million on a new face so we all could see him next to Mickey.

I enjoyed this movie and don't feel bad about the double dip since I was given the theatrical cut as an x-mas present last year. I had actually planned on waiting for this version as I did with Avatar, but was grateful for the gift mind you!

I heard about this director's cut long ago but was getting sick of waiting for an update or release date. I nearly picked up the theatrical version yesterday for $10 but glad I waited. Come December 13th The Expendables will finally be in my collection.

OK, so apparently they announced there'd be a director's cut before releasing the theatrical cut.... but why the delay? It can't have taken long to shoe-horn in 11 minutes of deleted scenes. Couldn't they have just released both versions on one disc in the first place?

Seems like a sad return to the rip-off practice of double-dipping which so plagued the DVD market a few years ago.

Got it for $4 BBV, maybe in a year or two I'll get the Extended version at BBV for another $4. But this one may have a 2nd disc with more features & BBV won't have that. Will be interesting to read the reviews once it streets & the comments from the double dippers.
