Extended cut of Suicide Squad hits Blu-ray in Dec. plus announcement trailer

10.05.2016

Suicide Squad Harley Quinn

It seemed inevitable but now we have official confirmation that an extended cut of SUICIDE SQUAD will premiere with its Digital HD and Blu-ray release. The film will hit Digital HD on November 15h and Ultra HD Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D, and Blu-ray on December 13th. There's no word of special features yet, but all of these iterations will include an extended cut of the film, which adds an extra 13 minutes to the running time. You can get a small glimpse of that footage with the announcement trailer below.

So what do you think? Will this extended cut pull a BATMAN V SUPERMAN and end up pleasing most of its fans? We know that there's some Joker footage lying around, so perhaps this may help to actually sell Jared Leto's Joker. I wasn't a fan of his interpretation, but I'm willing to blame the writing/editing on that one. At the very least, we'll have something a little different to check out come this December.

SUICIDE SQUAD hits Digital HD on November 15th and Blu-ray/DVD on December 13th.

Into it

I didn't walk away loving Suicide Squad like I wanted to, but it seemed fine. I am excited to see any extended scenes however that round out the scenes more and give a bit more back story to Joker and Harley's relationship. I'm in the minority, but I love the DCEU and I actually like the idea of Director's Cuts for every movie (I like to get one for Man of Steel too!). That being said I hope there is less studio meddling going further into these films.

So, there's no reason to go out to see the theatrical versions of Wonder Woman or JL, if they're going to hold on to the real movie for blu-ray. Going to the theater to see these 2+ hour trailers costs about as much anyway, so might as well save that money for the real thing.

This movie was........

Complete and utter fanboy garbage. Anyone who doesn't just have a DC hard on could smell studio meddling a mile away. The movie is just shitty generic set piece to set piece, and jesus the editing in this movie is like a shitty music video.

Take away the films comic merits and you have a complete crap fest of a film. 13 minutes can NOT save this movie. Triangle BITCH....fucking stupid.

Not even an extended cut can better the Enchantress' horrible CGI dance in the film's finale.

Let the haters hate. I loved this movie and am exciting for the extended cut even if it's only 13 minutes. I've yet to the the extended cut of Batman V Superman, is it really that different of a film compared to the theatrical release?

I liked BvS but it the extended cut really helps flesh out Lex JR's machinations. His whole story line makes a lot more sense.

Yeah definitely watch the Ultimate cut for BvS. The film flows so much better, there's more character setup for both Lex and Superman. It really does make a big difference.

Jared Leto said there was enough footage cut to make an entire other film. 13 extra minutes seems like kind of a let down.

This movie was atrocious. There was not one single redeeming thing about it.

That's a Thumbs Up/10 in my book. I liked the movie, but I'm not a huge fan of it. If I had to rate it, 6-6.5 out of 10.

"three words for you buddy: margot. robbie's. ass."

That makes it a good movie overall?...She doesn't have much of an ass though. And if you're so in love with her ass, watch Wolf of Wall Street more...Duh?

Excited!

I was a fan of SS the first time and wanted to check it out again in theaters, but didn't get a chance (my only screening was partially bothered by a screaming baby for the first hour).

Will definitely be buying this, and really excited to see how the new stuff (hopefully) remedies some of the film's flaws. I was a big fan of BvS, but recognized its editing was a problem. BvS: Extended, dare I say it, is a near masterpiece (well, at the very least I think time will be very kind to it, with

BvS: Extended, dare I say it, is a near masterpiece (well, at the very least I think time will be very kind to it, with people coming around), so bring on SS: Extended!

BTW -- if it's significantly better than the theatrical cut (like BvS) hopefully WB finally understands that the most important thing is to put out the complete and final vision, not one that fits into programming slots. C'mon WB! (wasn't that a JoBlo column before? Bring it back for this!)

At least that was rated PG-13. I went to see "Ted" a few years ago, and in strolled 2 parents with their 5 and 7 year old kids. Halfway thru, one kid asked aloud "Is this the same theater we will see 'Spider-man' in?" It took at least an hour before they finally decided "Ted" probably wasn't a movie for their kids, and left.

Thanks gibsoncr1!

And yes... couldn't believe they brought in a baby. Multiple people complained too until the management finally asked them to leave (why it took them over an hour to do that, I'll never know).

I guess those Ted parents thought, since it was about a teddy bear, it might work.... who knows. People can be so unaware of others, not to mention of themselves.

Even though I'm excited to hear that there's an extended cut coming, I'm still baffled why DC keeps releasing these theatrical versions only to release the director's cut and/or extended editions months later.

I just hope the majority of the extended thirteen minutes is more of Leto's Joker than anything. I still think he was a great choice for Joker and feel like he was given the shaft by most people due to his limited screen time. I'm sure this and hopefully his appearance in Affleck's

I'm sure this and hopefully his appearance in Affleck's solo Batm film will flesh out his character and portrayal a bit more.

"70% of Batman v Superman's home video sales this past week came from Blu-ray - one of the highest percentages yet seen, and only slightly lower than Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens' record-breaking 83%."

gee i wonder why...

Good to finally know. I really enjoyed the film when I saw it in theaters but there were definitely flaws to the film. You could tell a bunch of stuff was edited out, probably a lot more then the 13 minutes added in. I've enjoyed every DCEU film so far but WB needs to stop getting their hands in the editing room and let the directors so their thing.
