The Counselor Gets Unrated Extended Cut

More Than 20 Minutes of Additional Footage to Come

Looking at the names of those involved behind and in front of the camera, film fans had reason to look forward to The Counselor. Ridley Scott directed a script by Cormac McCarthy (e.g. No Country for Old Men) and gathered stars such as Brad Pitt, Javier Bardem, Michael Fassbender and more to fill out the roles. While their performances were praised, the film itself was panned as lacking substance. Style can't cover story flaws.

But there's hope. The recent announcement for the upcoming home video releases suggests that Ridley Scott, who has proven to be a fan of subsequent extended cuts, wants to correct the view that was built up with the theatrical version. The Blu-ray will thus feature an Unrated Extended Cut that adds more than 20 minutes of additional footage into the film. That makes for a lot of potential improvement that could substantially influence the film's perception. We'll make sure to analyze in a comparison whether the effect will really be that positive. If you want to purchase this longer version, make sure to avoid the DVD since it only has the theatrical cut on board.

The Counselor hits US home video on February 11th, 2014 while the UK follows 3 days later. You can order it at  Amazon.co.uk or Amazon.com.
