No, it’s not a new director’s cut – rather, screenings will be followed by 12 minutes of “never-before-seen footage.” As we all know, the major issue with the movie is that it was too short, so let’s all be happy there’s a remedy.
Although “never-before-seen footage” could mean anything. It doesn’t even necessarily have to be footage shot for the movie. It could be Christopher Nolan’s sound mixer bitching for 12 minutes about how he tried to explain to the director why it was stupid to make dialogue impossible to hear. It could be Michael Caine reciting, “Rage, rage against the dying of the light!” 25 more times.
I guess you’ll never know if you don’t go and find out. Also, tickets are two-for-one. What do you think’s in those extra minutes?
