Comparison:

  • Theatrical Version
  • Director's Cut
Release: Feb 22, 2011 - Author: brainbug1602 - Translator: Tony Montana - external link: IMDB
Compared are the Theatrical Version and the Director's Cut.

Four years after the success of "The Crow", Alex Proya's second big movie was released in movies theaters: "Dark City". A visionary masterpiece which questions the apprehended reality in a very complex way. On 07.29.2008, 10 years after its start in theaters, the Director's Cut was released on DVD and Blu-ray.
Many differences in the Director's Cut are just minor modifications like short extensions of the dialog oder alternate scenes. Please find a list of the fundamental differences in the following.

  • The spiral subject is a bigger issue in the DC. We get to know that John's finger print is spiral-shaped, which is being considered a development by the Strangers. Bumstead is also being confronted with that several times.



  • The relationship of Bumstead and Emma is distinctly enlarged. There are several new dialog scenes with them.



  • May, the hooker, has a daughter who also watched the dreadful murder of her mother. John leaves the room when he sees her, presented by a totally different motive in the DC. In a later scene after May's murder, Emma spots the kid and Bumstead notices one of her drawings with three black men on it.



  • There's one bigger recut. In the DC, the scene with Schreber, who is being visited by Mr. Hand in the public bath, pops up after he talked to Bumstead. In the Theatrical Version, it appears during the conversation between John and Emma.



  • Shot of John in the public bath. He sneaks into the cabin and follows the conversation between Schreber and Mr. Hand. These scenes are entirely missing the Theatrical Version.



  • John uses his tuning to force Schreber to come along when Schreber refuses to come along to Shell Beach with him and Bumstead.



    The Director's Cut is the preferential version. Thanks to all the extensions, the DC has more substance and some new aspects. In combination with the modifications of the coloring and the new effects, the movie looks just better and makes a better impression.

    The comparison has been split up in two parts. Part 1 deals with the general differences like the new coloring and the modified SFX. Part 2, the actual comparison, contains all the recuts, extensions, cuts etc.

    The scenes marked inred are missing in the DC, they're only in the Theatrical Version. The scenes marked in green are missing in the Theatrical Version, they're just in the DC. Blue marks the alternate scenes.

    If the screens are being compared, find the screens from the DC on the left and the corresponding scenes from the Theatrical Version on the right.

    Running times:

    DC: 111:43 Min (NTSC)
    Theatrical Version: 100:25 Min (NTSC)
  • General differences


  • Differences in coloring

    The Theatrical Version is dominated by blue or gray cloring, depending on the scene. That has been modified to green and yellow in the DC.






  • Tuning

    Most of John's tuning scenes have been modified. Usually the entire footage has been replaced (mentioned in the comparison) or the effects have been modified.

    [00:13:18]



    [00:20:52]



    [00:27:17]



    [01:13:10]




    All scenes of John using the tuning to push Schreber away remain unchanged [00:44:49]. Same for the scene of John breaking the glass wall [01:15:20] and a lot of scene in the final sequence.


  • Alien

    John kills one of the strangers at their first encouter. The alien, which comes out of his head and dies, shines blue in the DC.

    [00:21:38]




  • Dark City

    When Bumstead herds out into space, a cut to the city follows. Only in the DC comes a bright light out of the hole in the wall.

    [01:27:41]





  • Final

    Especially at the end of the fight between John and Mr. Book, some effects have been added in the DC. Here are some examples:
