(December 18, 2006 - Burbank, CA) — At last, audiences can experience Oliver Stone’s Alexander as he meant it to be seen, with "Alexander Revisited: The Unrated Final Cut," available on 2-disc DVD February 27. Featuring more than 45 minutes of never-before-seen footage, the spectacle of Alexander is even more impressive with this all-new unrated version which brings the film to a heightened level of realism and intensity. Containing an introduction by Oliver Stone, the title will sell for $24.98 SRP. Orders are due January 23. HD DVD and Blu-ray Disc versions will be released later in the year. The new introduction to "Alexander Revisited: The Unrated Final Cut" DVD reflects Stone’s passion and attention to detail in getting this film exactly the way he envisioned. Says Stone, “Over the last two years I have been able to sort out some of the unanswered questions about this highly complicated and passionate monarch -- questions I failed to answer dramatically enough. This film represents my complete and last version, as it will contain all the essential footage we shot. I don’t know how many filmmakers have managed to make three versions of the same film, but I have been fortunate to have the opportunity because of the success of video and DVD sales in the world, and I felt if I didn’t do it now, with the energy and memory I still have for the subject, it would never quite be the same again. For me, this is the complete Alexander, the clearest interpretation I can offer.” Alexander grossed $167M worldwide during its initial theatrical run and previous DVDs have sold nearly 3 and a half million units to date, but "Alexander: Revisited" promises to be a whole new experience for audiences. Now restructured into two acts with an intermission, "Alexander: Revisited" is an epic of filmmaking in the manner of such cinema classics as "Lawrence of Arabia" and "Gone with the Wind." Oliver Stone, one of cinema's most prolific innovators, and the recipient of three Academy Awards®, has directed such unforgettable films as "Platoon," "Wall Street," "Born on the Fourth of July," "JFK," "The Doors," "Natural Born Killers," "Nixon," "Any Given Sunday" and his most recent, the moving drama "World Trade Center."
