Killing Them Softly UK DVD – no deleted scenes

Killing Them Softly UK DVDKilling Them Softly is out on DVD and Blu-ray in the UK/Region 2 today, so just a heads-up to anyone who was going to get it:


Disappointingly all we get in the way of extras is a selection of Interviews from the main cast and crew – Andrew Dominik, Ben Mendelsohn, Max Casella, Ray Liotta, Scoot McNairy, Richard Jenkins and Trevor Long. Sure Brad Pitt is conspicuous in his absence, but otherwise all the main players are covered. The real disappointment is not only that there’s no writer/director Commentary; it’s not that there’s no meaty Documentary – it’s that there are no Deleted Scenes. Anybody who knows the works of Dominik will know that this final cut of the movie must have been culled from a much longer vision, and that there must be a significant amount of extra footage sitting around somewhere. This is, of course, confirmed by the fact that Deleted Scenes were once rumoured to be part of the Blu-ray release (and may still pop up on the Region A US release), making it even more insulting that they didn’t bother to include them here. — AV Forums
