Update: We're the Millers gets Extended, Wolverine Unleashed = 12 mins longer & more

All right, we’re closing out the first week of Adam’s Hell Plaza Oktoberfest today with a review of Paramount’s Let’s Scare Jessica to Death on MOD/DVD-R from Warner Archive.

Just a quick heads-up:  Starting on Monday, we’re going to be giving away some cool stuff on The Digital Bits and Jahnke’s Electric Theatre Facebook pages, so be sure to give them a like and check in over there on Monday!  [Read on here...]

And don’t forget that Factory Entertainment is giving Bits readers a 25% discount any order of IN STOCK ITEMS over $50 by using the code D1G1TALB1TS10 at checkout.

Now then, in announcement news today, Warner Home Video has set We’re the Millers: Extended Cut for release on Blu-ray Combo and DVD on 11/19 (SRP $35.99 and $28.98).  Extras will include a Millers Unleashed Outtakes Overload, deleted scenes, Gags & More Outtakes and the 9-part Stories from the Road documentary (includes Extreme Aniston, The Miller Makeovers, Road Trippin’ with the Millers, Don’t Suck Venom, Getting out of a Sticky Situation, I Am Pablo Chacon, Rollin’ in the RV, Livin’ It up with Brad and When Paranoia Sets In).

Warner has also set Steven Spielberg Presents: Pinky, Elmyra & the Brain: The Complete Series for DVD only release on 1/28 (SRP  $19.98).

By way, a number of you have asked about the difference in running times between the theatrical cut of Fox’s The Wolverine and the Unleashed Extended Edition.  The theatrical cut is 125 minutes and the Extended is 165.  So a whopping 40 minutes - definitely worth a look. 

[Late Update: Quick heads-up on The Wolverine Extended cut: ThinkJam PR originally told us (when we asked) that the cut was 165 minutes long, but director James Mangold says it’s only 12 minutes longer than the theatrical cut of 126 minutes.  We have now OFFICIALLY confirmed that with Fox.  The Extended cut is 138 minutes long, 12 minutes longer then the theatrical cut.  Adjust your expectations accordingly.  Sorry for the error!]

Here’s the cover art for both again...

The Wolverine: Extended Edition (Blu-ray 3D)    The Wolverine (Blu-ray Disc)

Here’s the cover art for We’re the Millers, Olive Film’s The Bamboo Saucer (due 1/21/14) and the non-Steelbook version of Universal’s Fast & Furious 6 (due 12/20 – the art we posted yesterday was the Steelbook, both are available on Amazon.com)...

All right, Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity opens this weekend and we hear it’s actually really damn good in IMAX 3D.  We’re checking it out ourselves today, so we’ll let you know. 

We’ll be back next week with FIVE more Oktoberfest reviews, those giveaways, all the week’s release news… and you never know… maybe a new disc review involving a kaiju or too.

Have a great weekend!
