Gavin Hood spoke with The Movie Interview about Blu-ray release and sadly dashes our hopes for a director’s cut of Ender’s Game.
“The tricky thing with director’s cuts when you’ve got a huge visual effects movie is that in order to have those cuts you need the shots and the shots require an enormous amount of money to make the shot. So if you haven’t made the shots…”
Big bummer there because you can hardly argue against that. There’s one deleted scene in the car between Valentine and Graff that had very basic VFX done for the DVD (you could see green outlines around Val’s head), so you can imagine that anything that included the Battle Room would end up looking like a terrible mess, which is such a shame.
