Rasputin: The Mad Monk





  • Theatrical Version
  • Extended Edition
Release: Oct 04, 2015 - Author: Blade41 - Translator: Tony Montana - external link: IMDB
There is not much left to say about the Twilight franchise. Almost everybody knows it, whether one likes it or not. For people you actually enjoy the story of Edward Cullen and Bella Swan, Lionsgate released a set containing the first 3 installments of the franchise including new Exteded Versions.

The Extended Version of Twilight contains approx. 4.5 minutes of new scenes. But then again, the new scenes are also available as deleted scenes on the previously released Blu-ray and DVD. I am talking a few added plot scenes here which are nice to have in the actual movie but that is it. Those scenes increase or decrease the movie quality.

Compared are the Theatrical Version and the Extended Edition, both released by Summit/Lionsgate.

There are 11 differences:
6 additional scenes/shots in the Extended Edition
3 additional scenes/shots in the Kinofassung
2 scenes with alternate/additional footage

The Extended Edition is 262.54 seconds (~ 4:23 minutes) longer than the Theatrical Version.
12:01 Minutes
Bella comes down the stairs, she passes Edward and siblings, and goes to their car. Edward still does not feel comfortable in her presence but he can't take his eyes off her. Bella drives off.

The shot of Bella putting ketchup on her plate is different. The Extended Version is longer though. Bella asks her dad if he ate at the dinner every evening and says she could cook him a meal as well. Charlie then would like to know how it was in school and if Bella had made friends already. She explains she had met a few people and asks about Culles. He answers and tells his daughter some things about the family.
