Thanks for scanning that, Wend. It had been posted about from the IMDb boards a while back, but we didn't have the actual scan of the article. I'll merge this into that discussion. :wink:

Thank you for the scan, Wedi. And it says we will get to see the sword fight between Balian and Guy! :w00t: Ooh, that will be something to behold.

I found this article towards the back of the latest Empire magazine. It looks like we are getting two different sets, a theatrical and a directors cut. Sorry if this has been posted elsewhere, but I had a good look and couldn't find any reference to it.


I've posted it as a clickable thumbnail. If the PEFIC want to upload it to the Ka-Bloom server, that's fine by me.

The text of the article was posted back on the top of page 5, but thanks for the scan.

An epic film set in Europe and the Middle East, 'Kingdom Of Heaven' follows one man's struggle to better himself and the world around him. Orlando Bloom stars as Balian, a French blacksmith who is mourning the deaths of his wife and baby when his estranged nobleman father (Liam Neeson) arrives and asks him to join the Crusades in Jerusalem. Mindful that conducting the Lord's work will help him atone for his sins, Balian agrees and embarks on the perilous journey. Along the way, he reveals his gifts of inherent goodness and fair treatment of all human beings.

Upon reaching Jerusalem, a city where his meagre beginnings no longer matter, Balian earns respect and fealty while secretly courting the capricious wife of the ruthless Guy de Lusignan (Marton Csokas) who seeks a way to destabilise the uneasy Christian-Muslim truce brokered by King Baldwin (Edward Norton) and wage war against his religious enemy.

Director Ridley Scott bring the scale of his previous epic 'Gladiator' to this film while confronting hundreds of years of religious conflict. At times controversial in both its content and production difficulties, populated by an all-star cast and held together by a sterling central performance from Orlando Bloom, 'Kindgom Of Heaven' is a multi-faceted classic of a humble man who chooses his fate, instead of accepting the fate given to him at birth.

And yes, I will be buying this as well as any and all extended versions.
