I heard about the creation of Dark City: The Director’s Cut when Goyer did an interview and spoke about it and other projects her was working on, including the DVD for Blade: The Series, about eight months ago. Goyer spoke of additional scenes (15 minutes worth) for Dark City and the mixing of music for them and some segments of the film. Dark City: The Director’s Cut is being released on July 29, 2008 on both DVD ($19.97) and Blu-Ray disc ($34.99). “The disc will carry both the theatrical and director’s cuts of the film – each of which will be presented in anamorphic widescreen, along with an English Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround track. Extras will include 3 commentary tracks (with director Alex Proyas, Writers Lem Dobbs, and David S Goyer, Director of Photography Dariusz Wolski, Production Designer Patrick Tatopoulous, and film critic Roger Ebert), an introduction by Alex Proyas, a Memories of Shell Beach making of featurette, an Architecture of Dreams featurette, a production gallery, trailers and more.” When I first saw DarkCity, I was not impressed, except for Jennifer Connelly. I thought the story was weird and the ending was strange. In the time since, after seeing so many remakes and unoriginal films, I am ready to watch Dark City: The Director’s Cut with fresh eyes.
