* The films directed by OrsonWelles post-''Film/CitizenKane'' were a magnet for ExecutiveMeddling, and as such can be found in several different cuts on home video. The official DVD releases of ''Film/TouchOfEvil'' and ''Mr. Arkadin'', for instance, each have three different cuts in the set. A similar release is allegedly planned for his ''Theatre/{{Othello}}''.

* ''Film/GodzillaKingOfTheMonsters'', itself already a recut of ''Film/{{Gojira}}'', received one when an italian filmmaker by the name of Luigi Cozzi decided to release the movie in Italy. Since italian theaters were doubtful of black and white films, however, Cozzi also "colorized" the movie as well. [[Film/ItalianGodzillaKingOfTheMonsters This "colorized" version of the movie]] had scenes cut for pacing, as well as added stock footage from other movies and newsreels accompanied by electronic music. The result is often referred to as "Cozzilla", and sometimes as "Psychedelic Godzilla".

* ''Music/TheBeatles'', after recording ''The White Album'', tried to [[RevisitingTheRoots get back to their roots in spontaneous, energetic rock-n-roll]] with a film/album titled ''Get Back''. Internal tensions and creative differences prevented ''Get Back'' from being completed; instead, material from these sessions was released as the film and album ''Film/LetItBe.'' PhilSpector produced the album and added overdubs to some songs. PaulMcCartney (who was the main advocate of the "back to the roots" approach in the first place) wasn't happy with Spector's production. Decades later, when opportunity arose to re-edit ''Let It Be'', Paul jumped at it. This new version (titled ''Let It Be... Naked'') stripped away Phil Spector's overdubs, featured a different song selection and track order, and used different takes of some of the songs. ''Naked'' also used digital editing (which obviously hadn't been available when ''Let It Be'' was originally released) to remove tape noises and to pitch-correct a few of the vocals.

* When MarvelComics reprinted the original series of ''ComicBook/ElfQuest'' new pages had to be added by Wendy Pini to fit the total page count. Some of these were new episode titles and recaps, while others were new or expanded story pages. Most of the latter were included in subsequent reprints; due to ArtEvolution it's usually not too hard to tell which. A few of the new episode titles were also included, causing some disruption to the original chaptering. Controversially, the series was also re-lettered with bigger balloons which obscured more of the original art and removed some special formatting. This was not corrected until the art was finally "remastered" with computer lettering and coloring, which is the version currently available on the official website. Another reformatting took place when Creator/DCComics reprinted the series in {{Manga}}-style volumes, requiring Pini to expand, contract or extend existing comic panels to fit the new page size. This version also included most of the additional art drawn for the Marvel version.

Beyond that, things can get very confusing. The inclusion of one or more Recuts is often one of the selling points of a LimitedSpecialCollectorsUltimateEdition. The Videogame equivalent is an UpdatedRerelease. See also OrwellianRetcon for when a recut makes significant changes to the plot or moral of the work.

* All seven of the ''franchise/Saw'' movies have unrated cuts, each of them being more gory than their theatrical counterparts.
** Allegedly, the original cut of Saw III was four hours long. The prospect of this version ever seeing the light of day is slim.

Added DiffLines:

* Some foreign versions of the ''Toys/{{Bionicle}}'' toyline's tie-in book ''Tale of the Toa'' add a significant amount of extra material, descriptions and dialogue. However, it's not clear whether these can be seen as additions, since some paragraphs of the original English version don't flow as well without them. It is possible that the English release got trimmed before release, while translations in other languages were based on the complete writing.

* On Volume 2 of WesternAnimation/DisneySingAlongSongs (''Heigh-Ho''), It had ''(Yo-Ho) A Pirates' Life for Me!'' During the song's end, An animatronic pirate explodes the barrels. It would terrified kids. Which is why the song was cut from the 1994 reprint.
