In case you missed it, Warner Brothers has released a new trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Before you go all up in arms over the fact the film was released in theaters on March 25th, this is a different trailer for the film; this trailer promotes the “Ultimate Edition.” It’s an exclusive to Blu-Ray+DVD+Digital HD editions, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Ultimate Edition contains over 30 minutes of footage that was eliminated from the original film. In addition to new footage and a longer run-time, the Ultimate Cut has been bumped up from its PG-13 rating to R.
Based on the trailer, some of these scenes include alternate/extended scenes and several new scenes, including the cut footage featuring Jena Malone in a mystery role.
While the extra 30 minutes may not appeal to people who hated the film, people who actually enjoyed the film will look forward to new footage that will likely fill in some of the plot holes of the theatrical film.
The Ultimate-Cut will be available on Digital HD on June 28th, while the Blu-Ray/DVD combo edition releases July 19th.
