I'll be getting the 4K UHD for this.

But, I'm sure there will be some retailer exclusive extra disc for the BD release.

Re: The Fate of the Furious - 7/11/17

The first in the series since the 4th film I did not see in theaters, so I will be picking this up most likely in 4K.

Really weird. That back of the artwork says the extended director's cut is a digital only exclusive.

Same. Just couldn't get a free night to go. I'm looking forward to it. I stayed out of the review thread, what was the consensus? Better than 7? Cause that was a huge step down for the series.

Wonder if Universal is saving this ^ cut, for another future bluray (or 4Kbluray) release.

Way better. A hell of a lot of fun. This is the epitome of fun, escapism entertainment. Shame you couldn't see it in the theater. It played so well on the big screen.

I don't think so. Universal has never done a double dip SE release on any of the series aside from the re-packaged re-releases with new artwork.

And please, don't respond with some loony ADD rambling.

Re: The Fate of the Furious - 7/11/17

i wonder if the director's cut really is the originally rumored runtime of 160 minutes and Universal didn't have the room for it and didn't want to do a 2 bd set

Re: The Fate of the Furious - 7/11/17

See, I thought this was a bit of a comedown after the last 3.
Spoiler:
Making Statham part of the "family" after having him kill Han was a little silly, but with this franchise, it's reached a point where you can basically accept anything


Still fun though. I didn't think Gray's action sequences had quite the punch Wan's and Lin's, but that's minor griping. That news about the extended cut being digital exclusive blows. Maybe it was a last-minute addition and they didn't have time to encode it? It's about as annoying as Paramount's iTunes-only commentaries, but in both cases, I give them credit, I guess. at least the code at least comes with the disc.

Re: The Fate of the Furious - 7/11/17

Now there is a sticker on the cover art that says "Code inside unlocks 'extended director's cut' only on digital." So I think it's safe to say that only the BD is going to be theatrical only and the digital copy will have both versions.
