Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
Games Radar – Even though Zack Snyder promised a three-hour extended version of Batman v Superman on home video, there was always a slim chance it wouldn’t materialise. That butt-numbing runtime has now been confirmed by a Swedish retailer, CDON, which lists the Ultimate Edition of the movie as clocking in at 181 minutes: three hours and one minute.
According producer Charles Roven, the uncut version will be more intense, but Snyder alerted it’s not really “R” version, due the lack of nudity and gore.
While the second disc of the release is the one that includes the R-rated cut, it’s the first disc which also has some surprises in store. Two hours of them, to be exact. Yes, we’re getting a hefty 120 minutes of bonus features that’s likely to include making-ofs, artwork, commentaries and more deleted scenes. The Blu-ray is expected to arrive in July, so we’ll no doubt receive specifics on those extras sometime before then.
You can already pre-order the DVD on Amazon, but the estimate release date is set for July only.
Events & Outings
On Tuesday (April 21) Amy was out to support an event with a cause, shedding light on the global refugee crisis at the opening of the “Refugee” exhibit at the Annenberg Space for Photography. Speaking with InStyle, Amy said “I’d heard about the refugee crisis, and then when they started showing the unfortunate pictures of children who were being affected in lots of different ways, that’s when I really started paying attention. As a mom, it’s something that really speaks to me because I understand that so many people are really looking to make a better life for their children, and I know that drives a lot of what’s happening in this community.”
Amy wore a blue body-hugging Dolce & Gabbana dress, and oour gallery was updated with over 200 HQ pictures of her in the arrivals.

In a very competitive situation, Sharp Objects, the high-profile drama series project starring Amy Adams that was out by Entertainment One and Blumhouse in February, has landed at HBO with an eight-episode straight-to-series order. Based on the book by Gone Girl author Gillian Flynn, Sharp Objects has UnReal co-creator Marti Noxon as showrunner, Wild helmer Jean-Marc Vallée as director, and Flynn as a writer alongside Noxon. I hear there was strong interest in the project, with Netflix going aggressively after it.
The serialized drama is an adaptation of Flynn’s 2006 best-selling debut thriller novel Sharp Objects. It originated as a feature at Alliance Films, where the book was optioned in 2011 by Blumhouse. The project morphed into a TV series as it was being developed at Blumhouse, while Alliance was acquired by eOne.
Sharp Objects centers on reporter Camille Preaker (Adams) who, fresh from a brief stay at a psychiatric hospital, must return to her tiny hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls. Trying to put together a psychological puzzle from her past, Camille finds herself identifying with the young victims a bit too closely.
