Dracula - Longer Version out in the UK in March

Lionsgate Re-Integrates Found Scenes Into Film

The British version of Dracula (1958) by the Hammer Studios starring Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing was cut for its theatrical relese due to BBFC demands. For decades, those scenes were believed to be lost forever (Dracula seduces Mina; the end where he dissolves in sunlight). However, back in September 2011 the last reels of the film were found in Japan with these scenes still intact (we reported).

Now, Lionsgate and Hammer announced a UK-release for March 18th, 2013. They could indeed secure both scenes and restore them. The release will contain both the restauration done by the British Film Institute in 2007 and the new restauration which embodies the longest version of the movie ever released. Furthermore, the film will be available in the original 1,66:1 ratio for the first time.

The upcoming set includes 2 DVDs and a Blu-ray with both cuts of the movie. Extras include 4 new featurettes about the censorship and background info of the film (total duration: 90 minutes) and a new audio commentary. The rest of the bonus material can be found here.

Order the movie at Amazon.co.uk: Blu-ray
