The Langoliers (Roadshow Cut)
This is my fanedit of the Stephen King miniseries, The Langoliers. Always a favorite of mine, combining air travel and time travel, it nevertheless suffered from the excess fat of a TV airing. So, I've reedited the movie into a roadshow format, with overture, intermission, and exit music, and trimmed about 15-20 minutes from the movie to improve it's pacing.

I have also added several Jerry Goldsmith music cues from Alien and Star Trek: The Motion Picture to give it a much needed musical boost. Finally, there is a new title sequence as well that hopefully won't look so dated.
Among the changes are the removal of some simply bad lines of dialouge, scenes at LAX with some of the characters, Bethany's troubled backstory, Bob's "If it were just the plane" theory, Bethany and Albert's romance, and I shortened the ending as well. Plus, Dinah develops her telepathic skills instead of telling people right away. I felt that none of these really added anything to the story, and it's important to keep it moving.
