They Shall Not Grow Old: Extended Cut on Anzac Day

Peter Jackson's Colorized WW2 Doc Gets 30 Minutes Longer Version

They Shall Not Grow Old was released on October 16th, 2018 at the London Film Festival as a documentary dealing with the experiences of soldiers from World War I. Peter Jackson used 100-year-old original footage and reworked it using state-of-the-art technology to transform it into an experience in color, sound and 3D.

The documentary started in the UK on November 9, 2018 with a BBFC 15 rating (reason: bloody injury detail, images of real dead bodies), and received an “R” rating for disturbing war images from the MPAA for its release in the US on February 1, 2019. They Shall Not Grow Old has a running time of almost 100 minutes and after the success of Jackson's theatrical version – now being one of the documentaries with the most revenue in the US (about 18 million US dollars) - a version extended by 30 minutes is to be broadcast in New Zealand on Anzac Day, the national memorial day in New Zealand and Australia for the soldiers who served or died during a war.

In this extended cut, you can see pictures of the world war that have never been shown before. However, there is no information yet whether the extended version of They Shall Not Grow Old will be released on (3D-) Blu-ray or DVD. Should this happen, however, our comparison between the theatrical version and the extended cut will provide information about the exact differences and extensions.
