10th Anniversary Edition of Oliver Stone’s Sweeping Epic “Alexander: The Ultimate Cut” on Blu-ray June 3 from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment

(March 4, 2014 – Burbank, CA) – To celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Oliver Stone’s epic historical drama “Alexander,” Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will release “Alexander: The Ultimate Cut” Blu-ray on June 3. Because the film’s original 2004 theatrical release required a running time of less than 3 hours, within strictly defined codes for violence and sexuality, the director felt he was unable to achieve a vision that stretched beyond the boundaries of an ordinary film. Stone now feels that by adhering to the outline of his original script, he is finally able to bring this improved “Ultimate Cut,” 31 minutes longer, to home viewing audiences. Stone further explains, “Originally, I did my best to deliver a thrilling movie on a very brief post production schedule, but was frustrated in the end because I wanted the material to tell Alexander’s story with greater nuance and complexity.” The “Theatrical Cut” (2004) was 2 hours and 55 minutes. The “Ultimate Cut” (2014) is 3 hours and 26 minutes with an intermission. It is eight minutes shorter than the “Final Cut” (2007) version and different in structure. “I’ve tried throughout this process to achieve what I believe is the appropriate balance between the inner and outer journeys undertaken by this extraordinary man. Free from earlier constraints, I’ve continued to pursue this great story, and I think I have at last achieved a film that tells a story as it has never been told.” The release will contain two versions of “Alexander” – the 2004 theatrical cut and the new “Ultimate Cut.” The Blu-ray will also include “The Ultimate Cut” on Digital HD with UltraViolet*. Additionally, there will be a new documentary – “The Real Alexander and the World He Made” – revealing how Alexander the Great’s vision of uniting the East and West helped shape our modern world, and illuminating how different our lives might have been had his empire not fractured upon his untimely death at the age of 32.
