‘Batman v Superman’ Ultimate Edition Will Be Getting a Limited Theatrical Release

By June 23, 2016

Will it fix the movie’s issues? Maybe this version will be better? Maybe all of the weird editing choices were done to cut down its time?

These are the most notable, and common questions that have popped up from fans ever since the first trailer for the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice – Ultimate Edition, which will not only be longer than the (let’s go with divisive) theatrical cut, but will also be darker and more brutal with an official R-rating, as opposed to the PG-13 wide release version.

In addition to the Ultimate Cut being made available on both Digital HD and blu ray/DVD as well, Warner Bros. has announced that the alternate version will be released theatrically for a limited time as well, something that we all probably saw coming. The 151 minute cut will be playing for one night only in select theatres around the country, including Los Angeles, Austin, Chicago, Columbus, Houston, Phoenix, and New York.

The studio commented on the release via the DC All-Access app with the following:

“As a thank you to all of the fans, Zack [Snyder] and the filmmakers would like to invite you to a special theatrical screening of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice Ultimate Edition. This one night only experience will be on Monday, June 27th in select cities. Reserve your seats now as space is limited.”

For those of you out there though who either don’t care enough to go to the movies to see the Ultimate Edition though, or just plain don’t want to see it in theatres, you can still watch out for the Ultimate Edition when its released on blu ray and DVD on July 19th. For those of you out there still toying with whether or not you want to watch it at all, like myself, you can just keep reading those Justice League reports from earlier this week, and know what it’s like to feel hope in the DCCU again.
