According to a designer named Sam Ashby, there will be an extended version of Kubrick's The Shining released on Halloween this year in the UK. It will include the 24 minutes of additional footage that was cut after the US release.
Gleefully excited to be designing the poster for the release of the extended US cut of THE SHINING for @BFI— Sam Ashby(@iamsamashby) July 16, 2012
After it's initial launch in the US but before its European release, Kubrick cut 24 minutes from the film. Some say it was because of bad reviews other because he felt it needed tightening.
I think a lot of UK King fans have just become busy on Halloween night.
