The Martian - No Extended Cut on US Blu-ray
Ridley Scott's film adaptation of The Martian turned out to be an outright hit both at the box office and with critics. Many people will already look forward to the film's home video release and some of them even might remember that he announced that a longer version with 20 more minutes is on the horizon.
But now that the specs for the upcoming US Blu-ray are announced, there's no sign of such a version:
For Scott, who prolonged several of his movies before, this is not the first time an announcement he made does not come to fruition. The most well-known case surely is Prometheus where he promised an Extended Cut but then didn't want to do it anymore.
