Exodus Gods and Kings Doesn't get Extended Cut
Thinking about it, it was rather obvious. Since the rise of the DVD, Ridley Scott's films follow a rhythm of being prolonged als Extended or Director's Cuts and staying the way they were shown in cinemas.
Gladiator (2000) had one. Hannibal (2001) didn't. Black Hawk Down (2001) had one, Tricks (2003) didn't. Kingdom of Heaven (2005) had one, A Good Year (2006) didn't. American Gangster (2007) had one, Body of Lies (2008) didn't. Robin Hood (2010) had one, Prometheus (2012) didn't. The Counselor (2013) had one and the most recent movie Exodus - Gods and Kings is destined to not become longer than in theaters.
At least that is what the director told Collider. Even though his first cut had a duration of 4.5 hours and worked for him so well that he almost submitted it to the studio, the Blu-ray will not contain a longer version than the 2.5-hour cinema cut. Also, 25 minutes of deleted scenes will find their way into the bonus section.
Exodus - Gods and Kings started in US cinemas on December 12th, 2014, the UK has to wait until December 26th, 2014.
