The Kings of Summer - Director Talks Versions

Some Censorship and Maybe a DC in the Future?

The Kings of Summer is a coming-of-age comedy telling the story of three teenage friends who are so fed up with their parents that they decide to build a cabin in the woods (no pun intended). The film gained attention at Cannes 2012 and is now one of the first entries that get a release outside of festivals. Director Jordan Vogt-Roberts talked to the press about his film and shared some interesting info on the different versions of his film with Collider. While the assembly cut was about 3.5 hours long, the final cut of the movie will only have a runtime of 94 minutes.

In comparison to the festival version, two alterations were made to the final product. Those changes can be called either "stilistic" or "censorship". You be the judge:

There are two differences. The rabbit scene is missing a shot where the guts very explicitly spill out and the word "cunt" is no longer in the movie. CBS is great because they allowed us to keep it R-rated.

Asked whether there are certain scenes that didn't make it into the final cut that Vogt-Roberts would have liked to be in there, he answers:

I put everything back in the movie that I wanted. There aren't any deleted scenes that I think should be in the movie, there aren't any extended scenes that I think should be in the movie. There's stuff that's fun that I'll put on the DVD but I think the movie is exactly what it needs to be.

However, there's still hope for a director's cut later on:

Down the line I would love to do a director's cut and have it be called "Toy's House". [...] So maybe down the line we'll get some special edition and I'd change a couple of things but there's really not much I would wanna change and put back in.


The Kings of Summer started in US cinemas on May 31st, 2013.
