Director's cut running time for F9 declined

This is pretty ridiculous. The director's cut of F9 runs 7 minutes longer than the theatrical cut. That is 4.8% longer and IMDb will not accept anything under 5%. This makes sense when they are NTSC/PAL different but these are both NTSC times and IMDb is doing a disservice to not have the accurate running time of the director's cut.

This rule probably made a lot more sense when people would have to estimate the running time or find the copyright length. However, with the advent of DVD and streaming service we know how long these features are and should be able to show distinct running times for distinct cuts, even if they are minor.

Hi Adrian -

I have now manually added the 150 minute running time to the title, this should be listed live on the site shortly.

Regarding the submission form error and our general rule of not accepting running times that fall short of the 5% different, I have forwarded your comments to the appropriate team for visibility and future improvements.

Cheers!
