Compared are the cut BBFC 18 Blu-ray of Eureka with the uncut French DVD of Metropolitan
A few additional master errors, each lasting less than 0.5 sec, were not listed in the report.
Since February 20, 2023, a Blu-ray of Eureka is available in the UK, which is in principle qualitatively and with the exclusive bonus material once again recommended for genre fans. Unfortunately, the film had to be censored for the BBFC rating. Once again, animal cruelty was the problem here and so a few cuts were made during the final scene with the chicken cage. Brief moments where the explosions leave little doubt that the animals have come to harm here are missing from the version.
French DVD starts with Metropolitan logo. Not included in the cuts duration/quantity.
92:27 / 88:47-88:48
After Egawa nodded approvingly in the helicopter, a short first shot from the chicken cage is missing. In the process, an animal is caught by a small explosion.
92:39 / 88:59-89:00
Before Egawa comes out of his cover again, another chicken is hit during a short additional shot.
94:30 / 90:48-90:49
After a few shots were fired from behind, there is a small jumpcut in the British version: A chicken on the right of the picture is caught by a small explosion and apparently does not survive it.
94:39 / 90:57-91:05
The following tracking shot is missing a longer piece in the middle with another jump cut. Here, too, at least one chicken is shredded by an explosion.
The final black image is a bit longer on the Blu-ray.
