    While Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice sets its sights on a record-setting $170-180 million domestic opening weekend and likely $400+ million worldewide opening, we finally have an official street date for the home entertainment release, which seems to include the much-discussed R-rated version of the film. Batman v Superman: Ultimate Cut will be part of a package of Blu-ray and DVD options landing on store shelves July 16th.

    Zack Snyder’s Watchmen also had an Ultimate Cut, which included most all of the deleted footage as well as some additional animated sequences. That version became widely hailed as the definitive way to watch the film, not to mention winning over a lot of fans who were initially less impressed by the theatrical version. I personally consider Watchmen: The Ultimate Cut to be one of the greatest superhero films of all time, in a special tier of superhero movies alongside Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy for example.

    The Ultimate Cut of Batman v Superman won’t just have more violence, as some suggested/assumed when they saw the R-rating. It also includes deleted scenes that increase the presence of certain characters in the film and add new characters not present in the theatrical release. But it does indeed also include additional footage of violence and carnage, and maybe even some brief nudity, so the R-rating will apparently be well-earned.

    Whether or not the extra footage and prospect of an R-rated Batman-Superman-Wonder Woman picture with a running time in excess of 3 hours translates into big sales numbers remains to be seen. However, history suggests there’s plenty of reason to expect Batman v Superman to perform very well on home entertainment. Besides the film’s current positive news about box office performance, Batman’s history on DVD and Blu-ray sends a promising message as well.

    The last Batman movie, The Dark Knight Rises, enjoyed more than $150 million in domestic home sales, and topped an estimated $250 million in total Blu-ray/DVD/Digital-HD sales and rentals. It’s predecessor, The Dark Knight, scored a massive $315 million on the domestic home entertainment front. Even Watchmen had an impressive $98+ million in Blu-ray/DVD sales in North America. And Man of Steel topped $100 million for the same market and home merchandising.

    That's a fast turnaround. I'd have thought it would come out on home video maybe November or December.

    I think they know with the lackluster reviews it won't be in the theater for too long

    I just finished watching SvB Ultimate Edition and I actually think that it redeems Zack Snyder. This new version makes way more sense. If you thought the movie was just OK this version is going to turn you into a fan. If you thought the movie was garbage this version isn't going to change your mind.

    I don't know if his ban is still on or it is up and he aint coming back. If it is the latter, good thing he don't have a POTY for them to take away.

    He was givin a vacay for various reasons... a week then a month. During his second hiatus, he sent the admins a very nasty letter so I'm gonna go ahead and assume he's gone gone.
