Yesterday, fans got their first look at some of the new footage that will be included in the Ultimate Edition release of "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice." The three-hour long cut will be rated R and include more of the storylines that were either shortened or cut completely from the final film. But even with all those changes, "BvS" cinematographer Larry Fong doesn't believe the film will change any minds.
Those of you who are fans, will dig it. If you hated it, you'll still hate it.

"Batman v Superman" was a polarizing film upon its release in March. Reviews for the film were not positive, and the film's cast and director had to defend it on the ensuing press tour. "BvS" actor Jeremy Irons and "Watchmen" artist Dave Gibbons have criticized the film, while "Dark Knight Returns" writer/artist Frank Miller praised Ben Affleck's performance. The film has grossed $329.5M at the domestic box office, making it the fifth highest-grossing film of 2016 so far.
Directed by Zack Snyder and starring Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Gal Gadot, "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice - Ultimate Edition" arrives on Digital HD June 28 and on Blu-ray July 19.
