Unhinged looks like it's gonna be the first movie to come to theaters post Covid-19 mid Covid-19 during this crazy summer.

Who knows what'll happen next.

Wow.

On one hand, I'm shocked because of all of the studio politics, actors' contracts, and streaming startups it had to jump over just to get released. That, in and of itself, is a monumental, logistical effort.

One the other, dominant hand, I really don't give a fuck.

I wonder if what is being released here is not the Snyder Cut, but simply a Snyder Cut. The Synder Cut likely never existed, and it wasn't until all the pressure for it to exist finally resulted in it being willed into existence... somehow. :shifty:

^ Yeah, Snyder posted a pic of all of the film reels of whatever state Justice League was pre-Joss Wedon, and that project looks like it hadn't even been cut down from 5 hours of footage yet. I kinda hope Snyder Stans see the finished version, and then petition that he does it again "but this time to it good."

I am indifferent to this despite strongly loving Man of Steel and liking BVS. I would have preferred all this fan effort being used to push for Mos2 or for Affleck to stay as Batman (the more I hear about Reeves/Pattinson's The Batman the more pissed I get), I am aware Affleck quit for his health (and I strongly wish him well) but WB could have made accommodations like not having him do press & promotional stuff so he doesn't have to be in the spot light or deal with backlash if it's not well received.
Still at least this way we will get more of Affleck's Batman hopefully in a more serious state then we got from Whedon.
Lastly I actually preferred Steppenwolf's final design to his Snyder design although the face of the theatrical version could have been much better (give him a viking beard like he has in the modern comics & more menacing eyes)

Spending some money to make a Snyder Cut is a smart move to build more hype for HBOMax.

Though in the long run I think Warner Brothers giving in to trolls will backfire.
What's to stop similar trollish/incessant campaigns from happening now? It worked before. They got their Snyder Cut.
Maybe if they try real hard they'll convince Disney to Remake The Last Jedi? Or recast actors they don't like for certain parts?

To exacerbate things Zack Snyder's Justice League was originally conceived, written and went into production with the goal to set up a Justice League: Part Two that would have been released Summer 2019.
Snyder's movie was meant to be DC's "Infinity War" with essentially "Justice League: Endgame" being his following movie.

So unless Zack Snyder's Director's Cut is drastically altered from the original idea this film/mini-series/whatever is going to end with a direct setup for a HUGE Justice League: Part Two that considering the shape of the DC Universe has even less of a chance of happening than the Snyder Cut originally had. And I don't see the trolls having succeeded once going "Well, we got OUR Justice League. Sure woulda been nice to see Part Two. But that's a thing of the past and isn't going to happen. Let's call it a day, fellas."

I wonder what the eventual Hashtag for the sequel will be? #MakeJusticeLeague2? #GiveSnyderHisEndgame?

I would support that.

But, instead the trolls have already latched onto #ReleaseTheAyerCut of Suicide Squad so there's that.

But I can't pretend I'm immune to all this and that there aren't a few mythical cuts of films I wouldn't want to see. I saw someone tweet #ReleaseTheLeeCut because they want to see Spike Lee's unedited version of the OLDBOY remake available and having been reminded of that now I too want to see that. I love Lee - had the chance to meet him once and he is absolutely delightful - and while I don't think there's a great cut of that unnecessary remake in a vault I do think there's a more interesting film that what was released. I know Lee had real fights with the studio on that film and he disowned the version that went to theaters. He disowned it so much so that it's the only project - movie, documentary, TV series, videogame narrative, short, commercial, etc - he's ever made in his 40+ year career that wasn't credited as "A Spike Lee JOINT" but is instead "A Spike Lee Film".

Well, I can’t pretend I’m immune to this either. Seeing alternate cuts of movies will always contain some sort of fascination to it for me. I watched every version of Death & Rebirth of Eva despite the cuts varying very little, and was at least glad multiple versions of an Eva property were available on home video. I have the TV aired and the initial re-edits of NGE episodes 21 - 24, and found the aesthetic choices interesting. Criterion released both versions of Brazil and Godzilla (1954), and seeing the changes made was interesting to me. (I love the Terry Morse cut of Godzilla starring Raymond Burr, BTW. I’m not saying that it was better or even as good as the Ishiro Honda Cut, but I love it nonetheless. And the American cut of Mothra vs Godzilla features more original Godzilla footage than the Japanese version! How is that possible?)

And I’ll also be fascinated by multiple cuts of Justice League. But, the thing is, that fascination comes entirely from a sense of posterity, and not a sense of actual interest in the movie itself. Justice League was most likely bad from day one of shooting. I’ve seen both cuts of Snyder’s Batman v Superman, and hated both equally. I’m not hopeful for his preferred cut of Justice League doing anything that his preferred cut if Batman v Superman didn’t already do: make me feel emotions ranging from boredom to frustration. So, at the end of the day, I still love lost/alternate versions of media, I still see The Snyder Cut and think “Really? That’s the best movie you could think of for one of these? Really?”

Yeah, despite my interest in posterity, I’m not hyped.

I really hope this news of Christopher Nolan reportedly pushing for Tenet or whatever it's called to be released in july isn't true.

He can push all he wants. Movie theaters aren’t going to show anything if they’re not open.

Sadly it seems like they will reopen.
AMC's Aron is back (after permanently banning Universal from his cinemas).

AMC and Regal took a beating for their no-masks-required policy (rightfully) and now say masks will be required but I still won't be going for a while.

Theaters have no real way to enforce it during the show short of having an employee - low paid & not receiving health insurance even though they absolutely should - sit through every show in every auditorium watching the audience for the entirety of the movie.

People are kinder abroad but I'm in the US and people here are terrible - it's embarrassing how poorly we've handled Covid - and over 80% of masks would be off before the final trailer started.

^ Well, and most movie theaters are notorious for being very dirty places anyway. There's no way any of that changed in response to an epidemic. Americans are too lazy for that.

I’m assuming people will just go. We’re just going to pretend the virus is gone.

Yeah, this too.
I really don't wanna say too much about America since I'm not there, but from what I see it really has been handled badly.
