I'm pretty sure they will, Matt Lucas is very popular here through Little Britain and others, they would be wise to sell the film on his image rather than the US cover.

Apparently SMALL APARTMENTS has already been released France on VOD first
(whereas Sony France told me there wasn't a DVD/BD release date):

:shock: VERY BAD NEWS regarding the Blu-ray edition coming this week :evil:
It's been cut by 3 mins, including Dolph's biggest scene (you'll know which one if you saw the film)!!! That doesn't make any sense...

Is this the US Blu-ray?
I don't get it. I've seen the film. Really enjoyed it, but it already seemed like they'd cut a few scenes shorter than they could have been. Why cut more?

Yes, the only edition so far.

I believe the DVD is still the Akerlund's director's cut and I haven't been missing other scenes apart from Saffron Burrows scenes and poll dancing, but this so beyond ridiculous (Why would they cut the movie at all since they released a long version on DVD, why would they cut THIS scene in particular. Have you heard anything or can it be that someone in the lab messed around and it "disappeared"?) I wonder if it could be a glitch like the equally ridiculous one that happened on MISSIONARY MAN.

I really hope they don't cut anything on the UK DVD. That would suck balls. I'd hope not, being as it's a Matt Lucas film.

There's one chance to have the uncut movie on Blu with the upcoming Norwegian edition, not released through Sony but local company Star Media Entertainment:

I thought the DVD versions didn't have the extra edits?

I got no response so far as to why the Blu-ray edition is cut (and certainly not from Sony)...

Great review though mention of the shorter version/deleted scene(s)
http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Small-Apa ... 67/#Review
If an Oscar were awarded every year for the most unique film, the most eccentric film, and the most unlikely-to-succeed-from-a-creative-perspective film, then Director Jonas Åkerlund's (Horsemen) Small Apartments would be a shoe-in for all three.

It's a film that really must be seen to be believed; it requires a wide-open mind and a little bit of faith that it will get better, but improve it does and without losing the rare combination of repulsion and charm that make Small Apartments arguably the most unique movie of 2012.

Small Apartments is sort of like a treasure trove of cinema goodness, if one likes his or her treasures of the very much oddball variety.

even if it looks like rubbish from the start; Small Apartments is a classic case of deceiving looks masking a wonderful little gem of a movie.

Billy Crystal shines as a fire investigator, Dolph Lundgren plays what is probably his most unique role as a body/mind self-help guru, James Caan is excellent as a mysterious older renter, Juno Temple dazzles as a girl who dreams without realizing the consequences of her actions, Johnny Knoxville effortlessly sells the part of the surprisingly deep druggie both inside and out, and James Marsden nails the part of the mystery Franklin brother. It's a wonderful cast in a wonderful movie that should be at the top of every open-minded cinephile's must-see list.
