We are less than a week away from the release of Netflix’s most expensive movie of 2023, and the anticipation is at its all-time high. Rebel Moon: Part One – A Child Of Fire is up for release this coming Friday and the Zack Snyder directorial has made all of us curious. As the story is written and directed by him, there is a lot of buzz around the content and the inspiration that the filmmaker has taken from a couple of successful IPs. But what is more intriguing is the fact that there will be a director’s cut for the movie. 

About Rebel Moon Director's Cut:

So far we have heard a lot about the Director’s Cut and how it will add an hour more to the runtime of the movie. Turns out Zack Snyder has now decided to talk about the same himself and reveal the details of what one should accept in the Director’s Cut Of Rebel Moon. The Justice League filmmaker has revealed that the director’s cut will include a slightly more sci-fi element. The event went on to call it more personal and bizarre. 

As per Comicbook, Rebel Moon director Zack Snyder said, "I think that the director's cut sort of contains a slightly more sort of sci-fi, deconstructive element. Because for me, one of the things that I was tackling in, sort of conceptually, when I was thinking about it, was a way to have the irony of something like heavy metal, something super violent, super sexual, super visually gigantic in a movie where it has no business belonging in a movie like this.”

"It cost a ton of money and that is like a real legitimate production value and it's crazy," Snyder continued. "Normally, those two things don't go together too well, because these things have big commercial appeal. So if you make it too niche ... No, but you know what I mean? It allowed me to do both ... so when you see the director's cut, you just see something a lot more weirdly, more personal, and bizarre." 


About Rebel Moon:

Rebel Moon is divided into two parts and stars Sofia Boutella in the lead alongside Michiel Huisman, Ray Fisher, Charlie Hunnam, Ed Skrein, Anthony Hopkins, and an ensemble. A visual treat and a genre-bending experiment, Rebel Moon: Part One – A Child Of Fire is set for a December 22, 2023 release, whereas, Rebel Moon: Part Two – The Scargiver will release on April 19, 2024.
