: Lucas? Popularized the Director's Cut? You must be joking. (Besides, whatever you may think of the Star Wars
Special Edition, not enough was changed to be a Director's Cut. One extra scene and some new SFX do not a Re-Cut
Ridley Scott and Blade Runner
was a Director's Cut.
In this troper's humble opinion, the name of this trope should be changed to Han Shot First
; it's gotta be the most common example.

. The "I'm a Pig!" shot was in the trailers for "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" but not in the theater version ... is there a trope for bits in trailers but cut from release?
also, how many versions of Abel Gance's Napoleon are there?
