Dawn of the Planet of the Apes Gets Extended Cut

5 More Minutes of Additional Footage on Blu-ray

Since July 11th, 2014, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is the next blockbuster that hits US cinemas. During this time, it's normal for the cast and the director to participate in the promotion tour that includes giving numerous interviews to different news outlets. Of course, Collider also got to sit down with director Matt Reeves for a couple of minutes and got the interestin info that the plan for the upcoming Blu-ray is for it to feature an Extended Cut of the movie.

According to Reeves, that prolonged version should contain about 5 more minutes of scenes that were removed from the theatrical cut in the very last minute before release. The explanation for that is that they wouldn't benefit the story that much but that they're still so "cool" that Reeves wants fans to see them. And for that, the possibility of an Extended Cut was invented back in the day, wasn't it? Composer Michael Giacchino has even done the additional soundtrack for that, as well, so we might look at a more solid prospect than just a simple "could be" scenario that keeps us guessing until the home video announcements are out. Fans should consider this more of a bonus since Reeves is very satisfied with the theatrical version and calls it his "Director's Cut".
