Suicide Squad Extended Cut Has Over 10 Minutes of New Footage
Earlier this month, we showed you the extended cut trailer for Warner Bros.' DC Comics adaptation Suicide Squad, along with details revealing this new version will feature 13 minutes of extra footage not seen in theaters. It seems that number was just a bit off, with a new image of the Blu-ray packaging announcing that there are only going to be 11 minutes of extra footage when it debuts on Digital HD November 15 and on Blu-ray and DVD December 13. We now have details on the special features that will be included in this extended edition.
A Reddit user posted the back side of the Suicide Squad Blu-ray cover. It reveals that the theatrical edition is 123 minutes long, while the extended cut clocks in at 134 minutes. No new scenes have been released for this extended cut yet, but a video debuted in August detailing a number of the deleted scenes that were hinted at in in trailers and other footage that wasn't seen in the theatrical cut.
This Blu-ray artwork also sheds some light on the special features, which haven't been previously announced. The Blu-ray features kick-off with a preview entitled Task Force X: One Team, One Mission, where fans can discover the rich legacy of DC's most infamous bad guys. There is also Squad Strength and Skills, which offers the "inside story" of how the cast got into shape for this movie, Joker and Harley: The 'It' Couple of the Underworld, which showcases The Joker and Harley Quinn's relationship, Chasing the Real, where writer/director David Ayer reveals techniques for creating an authentic surreal world, along with a Gag Reel. Here's teh official 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?"
