Why We Won't Ever Get The 4 Hour Cut Of Blade Runner 2049, According To Denis Villeneuve
I happen to share Denis Villeneuve’s viewpoint on extended cuts. There’s usually a reason that this footage doesn’t end up in the theatrical cut. While in some cases you can get something like Blade Runner’s Directors Cut that actually improves the movie, that’s usually pretty rare. Most of the time, the footage is cut because it doesn’t work, even if the scene itself sounds interesting. So it sounds like there’s no chance of an extended cut of Blade Runner 2049, but why would you want one when the director was allowed to make exactly the movie he wanted to in the first place? Besides, most movies originally begin editing with very long cuts that need to be widdled down.
