The Heat Will Have an Unrated Cut on DVD/BD
From the producing studio's point of view, it's clear which aspects of The Heat are especially noteworthy: it is one of the few movies this year that feature women in the lead roles and its plot is set in the buddy cop genre, a branch that's clearly male territory. This seems to carry so much potential that a sequel is already in the works. But that's a no-brainer considering the $40 million the first film made on the first weekend in US theaters. Still, it remains to be seen if the film starring Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy can use these cornerstones to make a good final result. At least it starts in cinemas with the "R" rating (for pervasive language, strong crude content and some violence) which means that the dialogues and humor will not be sugarcoated.
But that will not be the end of it. Director Paul Feig (Bridesmaids) talked to Collider about the upcoming Blu-ray release and shared the info that it will contain a longer Unrated Cut. He emphasizes that he only puts stuff in there that he likes because those longer versions are mostly the ones that get played on TV all the time. The additional material will probably consist of scenes that would make the film too long for cinemagoers but that this wouldn't be an issue for home video or TV use. That doesn't sound like we'll get to see true unrated material in the sense of increased raunchiness but let's not get ahead of ourselves here. The upcoming months will bring clarity in the form of a comparison which we'll surely do.
