Resident Evil: Retribution Gets An Extended Cut
Since September 14th, 2012, the 5th entry of the Resident Evil franchise Resident Evil: Retribution can be seen in US theatres (UK follows on September 28th, 2012). Since RE: Afterlife was such a big success, the new sequel is in 3D, as well. While Afterlife was censored in several countries, we'll have to wait and see how the home video releases of Retribution turn out.
For later, Director Paul W.S. Anderson already has teased us with a little bonus information. The future Blu-ray will contain an Alternate Cut that extends the theatrical version which currently runs 96 minutes. The last time that there were two versions of an RE movie was with RE: Apocalypse. This longer cut even came out exclusively in Germany (comparison).
However, the shorter theatrical cut doesn't have a reduced runtime because it was necessary. Anderson wanted a compact, intense film and that conflicted with the shooting locations around the world, which take more time to be introduced than a smaller number of them would. So, what might benefit the action and horror fans does hurt the story-telling in the end. Here, the Alternate Cut is supposed to save the day by giving the story more air to breathe between the action sequences.
