Warner Bros. has announced a June 28th release date for Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch on DVD and Blu-ray, which will contain an additional 18 minutes of unseen footage.
Sucker Punch got a good kicking from crtics (only 22% on Rotten Tomatoes) when it was released in March, and in the end it made just under $90 million at the worldwide box office, which Warner Bros. were no doubt disappointed with considering it cost them around $82 million to make it.
Here are the Blu-ray features which have been revealed so far:
Theatrical PG-13 Cut (110 minutes)
Extended Cut with 18 Additional Power-Packed Minutes
Maximum Movie Mode: Immersive Movie Exploration Hosted by Director Zack Snyder featuring Picture-In-Picture, Director Walk-Ons and Much More!
Animated Shorts: Sucker Punch Prequel Stories
No word on what the DVD will contain, but it is likely to be limited as studios continue on their quest to persuade people to buy Blu-ray instead.
Set in the 1950s, Sucker Punch follows Babydoll (Emily Browning) who is confined to a mental institution by her stepfather, who intends to have her lobotomized in five days. While there, she imagines an alternative reality to hide her from the pain, and in that world, she begins planning her escape, needing to steal five objects to help get her out before she is deflowered by a vile man. The film also stars Abbie Cornish, Vanessa Hudgens, Carla Gugino, Jena Malone, Jamie Chung and Jon Hamm.
