Dope - Recut After Sundance Premiere
Oh, the irony. The movie Dope won an award for editing at the last Sundance Festival ("To a person whose innovative cutting and skillful manipulation of time and rhythm made this story dope!") and has now been cut down by 10 minutes for its theatrical release in the US. This is not a rare occurrence, especially for films that tour the festival circuit first and then later enter regular cinemas. In the case of Dope, the duration of the last act of the movie seemed problematic for several critics, even though the movie about some 90's hip hop kids that get in trouble with drug dealers was generally well-received.
Shrunken from 115 to 104 minutes of runtime, the film is set for US cinemas some time in June 2015.
