This makes me hesitant. Typically Ridley Scott writes off the editions of his films labeled "Extended," and only swears by those specifically labeled "Director's Cut". I'm assuming then this is a distributor decision. Wonder which cut is the closest to his vision...

220 minutes?? Wow that's actually pretty awesome and exciting in my book Wanted to see the movie, but missed it when it was in theaters unfortunately

The theatrical cut was only 117 minutes so obviously there's a math issue here. Likely with both runtimes.

I saw it in theaters. Wasn't planning on it but I needed to kill time between leaving somebody's house and going to work and it fin in perfectly. Wish it hadn't. Everyone was reprehensible, and they talked on and on and on in such an unnatural philosophical way, as if they were contemplating life's mysteries while drug dealing or something. Not a good movie. It's depressing as hell. A version that's an extra hour longer? YIKES.

There's definitely not going to be a 220 min. version. Obviously, this is a typo of some sort. I mean, come on guys...
This movie is one of Sir Ridley's mediocre, or even bad ones. I was pretty disappointed with this. Nothing in this movie was really appealing, not a character, nor a storyline. A longer version is not going to make that better.

Perhaps a "What-The-F-Was-That-About?" Bonus Feature would be nice...not that I'd ever bother watching it. One of the Worst Films of 2013

this and other types of movies with super long run times amazes me on who writes these scripts. it must take a year to a movie that has almost a 4hr run time. they hav a lot on their minds lol

The extended edition is 2 hours and 18 minutes long, not 220 minutes, that would be a bit ridiculous

@JackTwist - he says that sometimes and sometimes he says the opposite - Ridley Scott talks ALOT and he usually says contradicting things-

This can't be right, the theatrical cut was definitely not 162 minutes. Saw this twice in theaters and it was definitely less than two hours.

Also sucks that Ridley (and Cormac) haven't recorded a commentary, Ridley's are usually quite good, but I guess Exodus is consuming all his time these days.

We'll see if the Extended cut helps the storytelling...because watching the theatrical version didn't do much for me. In fact i felt let down with this considering it's Ridley AND it had a great cast!

Judging by the trailer the movie seem to be your standard generic thriller/action/drama Hollywood fare with minimal substance and entertaining enough so you won't feel cheated for spending 15 bucks on a ticket.

The last time Scott made good film worth revisiting was Gladiator..and the latest(probably last) great film he made was Blade Runner. I'm sad to say that since Gladiator his movies have been....dull, not even bad, just boring.

So this gets an extended cut but not Prometheus? That one would have worked better with an alternate version!

Haven't seen it, but Ridley is a favourite, and his extended cuts are usually preferable to the theatrical outings. 21 minutes can make a world of difference. Really looking forward to this!

This movie was absolutely terrible. If there is a longer cut, I might watch because it may make more sense and make for a more entertaining film. But the theater cut of this movie was awful. And I love me some Ridley Scott.

@dannalexcon This is generally Ridley Scott's problem. He has excellent visual sense, he really knows how to craft a film visually, but his scripts are often weak in comparison. His best works are usually ones where style and substance are equal in value, films like Alien, Blade Runner, Gladiator (and I'm sure there are a few more).

@JackTwist...It's sometimes even the case that it's not his preferred version when it's officially labeled a "Director's Cut." The 2003 re-release of Alien that's on been on DVD and Blu-ray for over 10 years is offically called a Director's Cut, but he's been on record as saying that that labeling is completely for marketing reasons, and that he actually prefers the theatrical version.

It's funny how divided people are on this film. I loved it. Person I saw it with hated it. To each his/her own. Looking forward to the extended cut.

I was interested in watching this as it's Ridley Scott's, but not sure now that it made many critics' worst of 2013 lists... ouch!

Haven't seen this yet. Love RS. I'm sure Scott will comment on the BD somewhere which is his preferred version(s). Many seemingly bad theatrical releases have been rescued by truer directors cuts, so I hope that is the case here, if the film was really the mess I hear it is here.
Too bad the term directors cut is usually misused as a marketing gimmick.

I saw it in the theater and what made the film weak for me was the predictable story line along with, I feel, a dark ending. It's a straight forward film with no real surprises plot wise and you simply watch it knowing what will most likely happen next. Despite the cast turning in solid performances (minus Cameron Diaz's "windshield scene" lol), there isn't much of a script for them to act solidly for. Unless the Director's Cut helps improve the story and develops the characters better for the whole film entirely, there really isn't much reason for buying this blu-ray. If the longer cut only adds in deleted/extended scenes then that really isn't going to help the film much.
