Double Feature! Two MIB edits for the price of one! The MIIB wasn't worth publishing on it's own, so here it is lumped with an extended cut of the first film. 

MIB Theatrical - 97 Minutes 
MIB Intergalactic - 100 Minutes

MIIB Theatrical - 88 Minutes
MIIB Intergalactic - 89 Minutes

This new cut of MIB might need a bit of back story since there is a bit more to it than adding back some deleted scenes. After screening the film for test audiences, there was some confusion on the 3 conflicting alien races fighting over the galaxy. The original plot was two formally feuding species (Baltain and Arquillian) who had finally come to an agreement to trade the galaxy back, with the Edgarbug stepping in to stop the peace happening so that his species can continue to live off the devastation and destruction of the war. 

Clearly this was too much for some so they re-edited the film to take out the Baltains out and simply made it that the Edgarbug species wanted control of the galaxy from the Arquillian prince. They did this by redubbing the diner scene so that the two aliens were now speaking some foreign language with new exposition, redubbing the Frank the Pug scene to support it, and adding new graphics to the MIB HQ screen and having off screen dialogue added to shift the narrative. 

These 3 scenes were included in the short making-of documentary on the DVD, so I've done my best to reincorporate them back to simulate what the original test audiences would of scene back in 1997 along with the few deleted scenes elsewhere on the disc

CUTLISTS:

- Added extra beat with J at the chinese restaurant 
- Extended MIB Audition shootout with some new dialogue 
- Extended Miss Edleston scene on the MIB HQ screen

- Added parametics taking the bodies away and sending the cat with them
- Alternate Frank the Pug scene with new exposition to support the Baltain and Arquillian plot
- Alternate scene at MIB HQ with the Baltain and Arquillian warships firing at Earth  

MIIB

I've been meaning to watch these movies again, because I remember nothing from them, and I think I might have to check out these versions. Normally I wouldn't be interested in an extended cut with such a small difference in time, but the alternate versions of scenes interest me a lot.

A little suggestion, maybe you could make do with a "In Memory of Rip Torn" caption at the start?

What does MIIB stand for? :huh:

It's the abbreviation used for Men In Black 2.
Men in Black= MiB
Men in Black 2 = MiiB
Because in Roman Numerals, I is 1, II is 2.

I'll save that for a future edit of Freddy Got Fingered, his finest piece of work

Maybe it would be better to release MIB II as it's own separate thing? It's been a while since it was promised and only part one was released.
