Suicide Squad: Extended Cut Trailer, Runtime, and Release Date

The extended edition of Suicide Squad (2016), its runtime, and its release date have been announced by Warner Bros. After the litany of reports that were published about the deleted and altered scenes in the theatrical version of Suicide Squad, an extended version of the film was inevitable. With the Christmas shopping season on the horizon, Warner Bros. is taking no cases when it comes to profits that Suicide Squad brings in before the year ends.

The regular edition of Suicide Squad is two hours and ten minutes long. Suicide Squad: Extended Cut will add thirteen minutes of new footage to the film. That will bring the runtime to two hours and twenty-three minutes. After the deleted / alter scenes reports, that seems like a small amount of footage when you consider what was supposedly cut from the film.

The announcement trailer features bits of scenes not featured in the theatrical cut of the film.

The official press release for Suicide Squad: Extended Cut:

Bring the Squad home when “Suicide Squad” arrives on 4K, 3D, Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download. From director David Ayer (“Fury,” “End of Watch”) comes “Suicide Squad,” starring Oscar® nominee Will Smith (Best Actor, 2002, “Ali,” Best Actor, 2007 “The Pursuit of Happyness,”), Oscar ® winner Jared Leto (Best Supporting Actor, “Dallas Buyers Club,” 2013), Margot Robbie (“The Wolf of Wall Street,” “Focus”), Joel Kinnaman (Netflix’s “House of Cards”) and Oscar nominee Viola Davis (“The Help,” “Doubt”).

Written and directed by Ayer based on the characters from DC, the film also stars Jai Courtney (“Insurgent”), Jay Hernandez (“Takers”), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (“Thor: The Dark World”), Ike Barinholtz (“Neighbors”), Scott Eastwood (“Fury”), Cara Delevingne (“Paper Towns”), Adam Beach (“Cowboys & Aliens”), and Karen Fukuhara in her feature film debut. It is produced by Charles Roven and Richard Suckle, with Zack Snyder, Deborah Snyder, Colin Wilson and Geoff Johns serving as executive producers.

“Suicide Squad: Extended Cut” features more action and more Squad with 13 more minutes of footage not previously seen in cinemas. The 4K, 3D and Blu-ray will include the extended version of the film on the Blu-ray disc. The extended version will also be available to own on Digital Download.

The Ultra HD Blu-ray features an Ultra HD Blu-ray disc with the theatrical version in 4K with HDR and a Blu-ray disc with the extended version. The Blu-ray 3D features the theatrical version of the film in 3D hi-definition and hi-definition, as well as the extended version in hi-definition. The Blu-ray features the extended version and theatrical version of the film in hi-definition on Blu-ray and the DVD features the theatrical version in standard definition. Fans can also own “Suicide Squad” via purchase from digital retailers.

The Blu-ray discs of “Suicide Squad” will feature a Dolby Atmos® soundtrack remixed specifically for the home theater environment to place and move audio anywhere in the room, including overhead. To experience Dolby Atmos at home, a Dolby Atmos enabled AV receiver and additional speakers are required, or a Dolby Atmos enabled sound bar; however, Dolby Atmos soundtracks are also fully backward compatible with traditional audio configurations and legacy home entertainment equipment.

Suicide Squad‘s plot synopsis: “It feels good to be bad… Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super-Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?”
