Did you get enough Batfleck the first time around? Are you anxious to watch one of the most talked about fights of the DC universe? Well, Warner Bros. is planning on bringing all of that and more back to theaters for a one night showing. Batman V Superman – bigger, longer, and uncut!
Back in March, Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice was released in theaters. The movie had mixed reviews, receiving a 27% Critics Rating and an audience score of 66% on Rotten Tomatoes. The hype built around the film was very intense and when it finally was released, it didn’t quite live up to the expectations of fans or the studio.
A lot of the film was very dark and gritty, and had some stand out moments for sure. But there were some terrible scripting problems with rather bizarre character motivations. It seemed as if there were missing scenes that would have further added to the exposition of the movie and substantiated some of the films plot points. And there is a reason for that, as 30 minutes of footage had been cut from the theatrical release. Footage that featured some scenes that were too violent and intense sequences for its PG13 rating. As you may or may not have heard, this footage is making its way onto DVD/BluRay in Batman v Superman the “Ultimate Cut” and will be Rated R.
Warner Bros. confirmed that a re- release of the uncut version of the film will be not only sent to Blu-ray, but it will show in select theaters for one night. This version of the film is rated R and includes much more footage than the original theatrical release.
The event will actually be free, but tickets must be reserved at the website WBTickets.com. The event will take place in such cities as, but not limited to, Austin, TX, Chicago, IL, Houston, TX and a couple cities in California as well as New York. Zack Snyder put out a statement saying that he is thankful for all the fans and this one-night engagement will take place on Monday, June 27, 2016.
“As a thank you to all of the fans, Zack 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.”
