We are even more responsible for this.
I had no idea a 4k Blu-ray release of this movie was in the works and I was very excited when I read the news. I was about to order it immediately. However, now I’m reading comments from people saying this 4k Blu-ray will probably only contain the Theatrical Cut, not the Extended Cut.
If true, that’d be a real shame. When a version with more gore, sex and violence is available, then that’s the version I want to see. Out of principle I just don’t buy these version that have all of the fun parts removed.
In my opinion it’d be stupid to only release the Theatrical Cut to 4k Blu-ray when an Extended Cut is already available on regular Blu-ray. So, I’m not going to pre-order just yet. I first want a confirmation about what cut is available on the 4k Blu-ray. If it’s the Extended Cut, it’ll be an instant buy for me. Otherwise, I’ll just stick with the Blu-ray release.
