Seems the studio screwed us.  Those who waited for the DVD will get to see the movie as it should have been.  Sonsabitches!

About the studio's cutting of the film, which he had no control over, he said, and I quote, "All of the best scenes were cut." Anderson was obviously very annoyed at the way the film was released. However, this was not purely because of the PG-13 limitation, which incidentally, the studio enforced THREE WEEKS before the release date! It was always going to be R until then. Part of the reason for the cutting was that some of the effects were not ready by the time the release date came around. The effects team had very little time to do anything.

As far as the content that was cut, apparently we see all those who die, die on screen, but he also said that there is a sub-plot that we will have to wait for on DVD. Yes there will be an R-rated Director's cut DVD although they don't know the release date yet.

Without saying anything that could dig his own grave, Anderson tactfully pinned the fault of the poor quality of the film on the studio's cut. We all know that the script and performances was not quite up to par either, but then it was time for me to ask my first question.

I'm betting a director's cut still can't improve on that much pure suck.

Haven't seen the movie, won't until it is on DVD...but I can 99.9% guarantee it won't improve drastically on the theatrical cut.  Anderson probably has a royalty backend fee on the DVD sales, so of course he's going to make it sound like the DVD will be a far better version of the movie.

I didn't mind the movie, Actually.  To be honest, until the directors cut for Aliens; this one was about the same. I could see it getting a whole lot better.

I saw that coming once they announced PG-13.  It's films like this that clearly see their profit on DVD sales.  It's amazing it was released theatrically at all.

I was going to buy it anyway, so at least I am somewhat more excited by this news.

haha lol. Very true though. It will help the movie a little bit, but it made me think. How can they have a subplot if they dont even have a real plot........

I agre. I don't know how blood and gore can help a movie that is a mighty example of suck-ass from the get-go. I was watching Aliens last night on TNT (FYI: when writing wedding thank you notes, having violence in front of you helps retain sanity) and was just marveling (yet again) how tight and intense a film that is. Then I look at AvP and just snicker.

A powerhouse filmmaker vs. a wannabe.
