The Martian - No Extended Cut on US Blu-ray

Did Ridley Scott Promise too Much Again?

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:

The 3D and 2D Blu-ray Combo Packs will include:

  • Signal Acquired: Writing and Direction – Learn how the producers brought an acclaimed novel, a master director and a stellar cast together for The Martian.
  • Occupy Mars: Casting and Costumes – Matt Damon and his ensemble of incredibly talented actors discuss their roles.
  • 5 Theatrical In-World Pieces:
    • Ares III: Farewell
    • The Right Stuff
    • Ares: Our Greatest Adventure
    • Leave Your Mark
    • Bring Him Home
  • Ares III: Refocused – Seven years after the events of Ares 3, take a deeper look at the true story behind Mark Watney's daring rescue
  • Gag Reel
  • Production Gallery

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.
