Damn, that's quick! I have the day off tomorrow, thinking I might go watch the movie for a second time before it's pulled from the theaters.

I'll order it from Amazon, eventhough Best Buy will probably have some sort of an incentive exclusive.

Four months huh? The movie bombed so bad I thought they might crank it out in 90 days.

Since it coming to BluRay/DVD so quickly, does that mean it won't be a Director's Cut?

I think that's a safe bet. There may be one later, I suppose.

Well, if there is not a Director's Cut, there definitely should be some deleted scenes or a director's commentary track.

Unless the film does really well overseas in the next 6 weeks, I don't see that happening.

A director's cut would - I'm guessing - involve putting back in a lot of scenes with alien GLs and more flying and battle shots. In other words, paying the Sony FX crew to create/fnish more CGI shots.

I'm sure Warner Bros' stance is they put too much money into GL already. More money for FX? No way.

Oh I will get it for sure, along with Thor, Captain America and any other superhero flick. Really wish GL had more meat to it....

The first half is good, it just gets really hollow when he gets back to Earth until the end of the movie.

I'd be really surprised to see any kind of director's cut. Any scenes with CGI would have ended up on the cutting room floor before they had any real work done to them. I doubt this will be like Daredevil, where an attempt was made to fix the movie. WB is just going to cut their losses and move on.

Additional scenes wouldn't have to be CGI scenes necessarily. Scenes from their childhood connecting Hal, Hector and Carol would involve no CGI and possibly the John Stewart cameo.

I think It will depend on DVD sales. I say if the first release of the Basic version dose well then,later down the road the will fire up a special edition. Ton's of crazy movies get special editions.

And Watchmen had a budget of 150 million, and didn't even make 200 million oversees!

I'm guessing the release will be pretty barebones. The film, some commentaries, and maybe a few "special features" with Dan DiDio "confusing" Hal Jordan and Kyle Rayner again.

But Watchmen was basically begging for an extended cut. For one, everybody already knew that Snyder had filmed a much longer movie that he was forced to cut to get more daily showings in theaters. His version (and I agree) flows much better with the longer running time.

There are no such tales with Green Lantern. We haven't heard anything about some longer cut that the director fought for, but was forced by WB to shorten.

If I had to guess, there will be some deleted scenes on the dvd, but nothing added to the running time of the film itself.

If I were to guess, if the initial sales of the DVD/BD prove worthy, we'll see something more "special" next year but as someone else said, as of yet there have been no reports that confirmed a decent number of scenes were filmed/completed but cut from the film to even add back into the theatrical cut. I HOPE there are though.
