David Ayer wants to get in on that Director's Cut Action Too (Suicide Squad)


Recommended Posts

So since people seem to be into this... at what point does it get abused by studios?

 

It would be a cheap way to make extra money - film a little bit extra on every movie - then release a new directors cut after 2 years to see extra dollars roll in.  Now you get to pay to see every movie multiple times with slightly different parts.  

 

You would think this would only work with good movies, but apparently that is right out the window with what is happening now.

They aren’t usually as high profile as #thesnydercut, but this has been happening for a long time. So many DVDs were advertised as extended or “unrated”, where they basically take a couple deleted scenes and add them back in. That might be for the original DVD release, or one they do a year or two later with a few extra behind the scenes features on a second disk in a “collector’s edition”.

The difference is having some sort of a 'release' like what they are doing for Justice League.  This is being propped up as a driver for sales for HBO MAX.  Not just another dvd.

Well, HBO Max is just the 2021 version of a DVD, right? :p

They're taking a page out of the video game playbook wherein remasters/re-releases/re-imaginings are released constantly.

It did? I never even saw the theatrical cut to be honest.

 

Yeah, it's an extended cut of the film that adds 13 minutes to the film, mostly additional Joker scenes which help flesh things out a bit. It's the only version I've seen. Doesn't make the movie good but it wasn't bad either.
