MOVIE NEWS – Cinematographer Larry Fong tweeted that the extra footage added in the Batman v Superman Ultimate Edition won’t change anyone’s opinion of the movie.
This week Warner Bros.’ debuted the new Ultimate Edition trailer for Batman v Superman, which will contain more than 30 minutes of footage that wasn’t included in the theatrical cut. The trailer showcased a glimpse at some of this new footage, comprising our first look at Jena Malone’s mysterious character, who was ultimately cut from the movie before it hit theaters.
While the movie was still done moderately well at the box office ($871.8 million worldwide), it was destroyed by critics (27% on Rotten Tomatoes). Some people wondered if this new footage in this extended, R-rated cut will be enough to sway their opinion of the movie, but that may not be the case.
Shortly after the Ultimate Edition trailer was out, Dawn of Justice cinematographer Larry Fong sent out a clear message on Twitter, telling that the extra footage in this new edition won’t be change your mind about the film. He clarified in another tweet that he essentially meant that “haters gonna hate” with his statement. Check out what he had to say below.
“Those of you who are fans, will dig it. If you hated it, you’ll still hate it.”
The trailer contains extended footage from the North Africa sequence, along with a deleted scene showing a new character scratching a Batman symbol into a lottery ticket, which he flaunts at Clark Kent. There is also footage from a TV interview Clark Kent is watching, which is different from the theatrical cut, along with scenes of a few Russian characters, one of whom smiles when Superman takes down a missile. We are not yet aware how these scenes will impact the movie as a whole, but we do know that this Ultimate Edition will be available early on Digital HD June 28, before debuting on Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD, and Ultra HD Blu-ray July 19.
The Ultimate Edition will take 182 minutes to watch, with an R rating for sequences of violence. Zack Snyder told last month that he is putting back scenes that he was forced to cut so the film would get a PG-13 rating. He also revealed that there is no nudity, just more violence that “tipped the scales” from an R rating to a PG-13. There have been rumors that Warner Bros. may release this R-rated extended edition in theaters, but that has yet to be confirmed. Take a look at Larry Fong’s tweets below, and stay tuned for more on the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Ultimate Edition.
Those of you who are fans, will dig it. If you hated it, you’ll still hate it.
