Thelma & Louise

So I Married An Axe Murderer




One Million Years B.C


  • US Version
  • UK Version
Release: Jun 19, 2010 - Author: brainbug1602 - Translator: Tony Montana - external link: IMDB
Compared are the Spanish DVD (= US Version) by 20th Century Fox and the UK DVD (= Uncut Version) by Optimum/Studio Canal.

One Million Years BC is a co-production of Hammer Film Productions, Associated British-Pathé and Seven Arts Productions. In the US, 20th Century Fox brought it to theaters but only in a shortened version (approx. 8 min were removed). This US Version is still being released on DVD by Fox.
Most of the removed footage are fight and violent scenes to make the movie available for a bigger (younger) audience.

Besides that there are some general differences:

  • The opening credits are slightly different, furthermore the speed of the movie is different until the "big bang": the UK DVD is slightly faster (more frames per seconds).

  • In the last shot, the image gets brighter in the US Version. In the UK Version instead, it remains grim and kind of colorless, plus the speed is different again.

    Running times:

    Spanish DVD (US Version): 87:59 min
    UK DVD (Uncut Version): 96:04 min
