Batman v Superman R-Rated Ultimate Cut Coming to Theaters for One Night Only
< >
Taking its cue from The Killing Joke movie (and trying to make up for its disappointing box office, no doubt), Batman v Superman is releasing the R-rated Ultimate Cut in theaters for one night only. 



The event will take place on June 27, about one week after the Blu-ray drops, in select cities such as Austin, Chicago, Los Angeles, and New York. You can find a theater and buy tickets here.

Opening quote
"As a thank you to all of the fans, Zack [Snyder] and the filmmakers would like to invite you to a special theatrical screening of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice Ultimate Edition," Warner Bros. wrote on DC All-Access (via Comicbook.com). "This one night only experience will be on Monday, June 27th in select cities. Reserve your seats now as space is limited."
Closing quote

After Batman v Superman came out in theaters to middling box office (and heavy criticism that the movie makes no goddamn sense), Zack Snyder and the producers worked hard to create a mythos that the R-Rated ultimate edition is the "definitive" version of the movie. It supposedly fills lots of plot holes about Lex Luthor's plan, makes Superman a little less murder-y, expands Batman's highly acclaimed fight scenes, and includes Jena Malone's completely anticlimactic mystery character. I don't think 30 minutes of footage could mitigate all of the concerns about the movie, but I think it's a possibility that it will make the movie significantly better.
