    Wal-Mart claims their exclusive has 157 minutes, 3 more than the theatrical.

    And let's say on an off chance that is true, that would be a tough decision on whether to get the Bluray combo pack or just that single Bluray. I just don't see why it would have a random 3 minutes added to the run time.

    Run times for the same version of the same movie can vary a lot, though.

    Likely an error. Before the movie came out, IMAX listed the run time as 10 minutes longer than the non-IMAX version, causing everyone to think it had extra footage. Turns out it was a mistake.

    Also, isn't the movie 2hrs 37min? That would make the Walmart version accurate.

    THIS and sometimes people count the opening production logos and some don't like the whole earth spinning for "Universal" the pegasus running through a triangle for "TriStar" etc. Some count that in the run time and others don't.

    There's probably a couple of random scenes, like one reportedly involving Sam's boss after he meets Carly, but I'd not expect anything substantial at all.

    I'm still curious about that shot of Sam with Lennox during the DC invasion we saw in the trailer. I'm wondering how much longer that scene was intended to be. I suspect that if we even get any additional footage, it'll probably be comprised of small things like that. The editing may appear less awkward if those scenes were incorporated. Who knows?

    That's not true at all. Ten or 30 extra seconds in a scene can change the entire flow, for better or worse. Editing is the most important thing when it comes to creating the feel of a movie.

    Think of how much awesomer the imax version of the forest battle scene was with that extra footage! We got some really great shots of bots fighting and the battle flowed very well. That was certainly less than a minute of extra footage, but it made it a must purchase for many people, including me.

    It dunno about NTSC, but conversion to PAL affects the runtime. Because film is 24 frames per second, and PAL is 25fps, they end up playing one extra frame per second, which makes the film 4% shorter.

    I used to wonder about runtime differences between R1 and R2 dvd releases before I figured that one out.

    sounds like a potentially profitable mistake.

    2 hours, 34 minutes and a few seconds to spare.
    If Wal-Mart's info holds up, if... Then it will definitely be 3 extra minutes.

    Here's the thing though: Didn't Wal-Mart advertise the f**k out of the fact that their edition of ROTF was extended? Why haven't they said anything at this point?

    And if this is true, don't expect any more robots. As much as I would love to see Skids and Mudflap's death put back in or the Autobots being captured, it is not very likely that they would do the CGI for a store exclusive.

    I know, what I meant was that although 3 min of extra footage would be a welcome addition, it cant be compared to movies that add much more extra footage, like movies that add 30 or 45 min. It is always interesting to see what is in that new footage, and 3 min just leave you wishing it was more.
