REBEL MOON: Zack Snyder Reveals Premiere Date, First Stills, And Official Titles For R-Rated Extended Cuts

We've known for quite a while now that both parts of Zack Snyder's Netflix sci-fi saga Rebel Moon, A Child of Fire and The Scargiver, will be re-released as R-rated extended editions, and the filmmaker has now unveiled a first official look along with the brand-new titles and a premiere date.

Both Rebel Moon - Chapter One: Chalice Of Blood and Chapter Two: Curse of Forgiveness will be available to stream on Netflix from August 2.

The movies have also been given an official R-rating for "brutal bloody violence and gore, sexual content, graphic nudity, and language".

Check out the new stills at the link below.

As Snyder has previously noted, it sounds like these extended cuts are going to be significantly more adult-oriented than the standard versions.

"They're each about an hour longer than the originals, the PG-13 [versions]," the Watchmen director revealed in a recent interview. "So it'll be nice to see the six hours together. You can take a break, of course. It's a more, maybe, immersive experience. I'm interested for people to see it that way. It's very adult, it's very R-rated."

Despite a critical mauling, the original Rebel Moon films were big hits for Netflix, so don't be surprised if a third movie is announced down the line. After all, Snyder has already revealed that he has plans for a potential six films.

"Four or six movies, depending... I guess it's whether or not every time we make one of these movies we make two, that's the question," Snyder told the Radio Times in a recent interview. "We were talking about it the other day and I was like, would an audience be disappointed if they only got one movie now from Rebel Moon? Would they be like, 'Oh, it's one now? Great.'"

Rebel Moon stars Sofia Boutella as Kora, the titular Scargiver, Michiel Huisman, Djimon Hounsou, Doona Bae, Staz Nair, and Anthony Hopkins as the voice of evolving robot guardian Jimmy. The sequel will also feature Fra Fee, Cleopatra Coleman, Stuart Martin, Ingvar Sigurðsson, Alfonso Herrera, Cary Elwes, Rhian Rees, Elise Duffy, Sky Yang, and Charlotte Maggi.

"Delve further into the mythology and madness of Zack Snyder’s epic sci-fi saga in the viciously sexier, bloodier world of Rebel Moon — Chapter One: Chalice of Blood and Rebel Moon – Chapter Two: Curse of Forgiveness. In Snyder’s director’s cut, a peaceful settlement on a moon in the furthest reaches of the universe finds itself threatened by the armies of the tyrannical Regent Balisarius, and Kora (Sofia Boutella), a mysterious stranger living among the villagers, becomes their best hope for survival. Tasked with finding trained fighters who will unite with her in making an impossible stand against the Motherworld, Kora assembles a small band of warriors — outsiders, insurgents, peasants, and orphans of war who share a common need for redemption and revenge. As the shadow of an entire Realm bears down on the unlikeliest of moons, a new army of heroes is formed."

i saw the first one and it sucked. havent bothered with the 2nd. waiting on the R rated extended ones to watch both, but, if they are just more bloody and with some weird ass alien sex then screw that, im not wasting 6hrs of my life on this garbage. it's too bad cuz im not a snyder hater, but, i was hoping for a good original sci-fi movie and the first one was awful

@MotherGooseUPus - It's for the true fans of wheat porn.
The1st - 6/11/2024, 2:41 PM
@TheyDont - The grain is...everything. It's a good hustle he's got going though with studios though. I feels like everything he makes going forward will have a director's cut.

Snyder on Netflix...where he belongs
CharlesLeeRay - 6/11/2024, 1:43 PM
@HermanM - hmm! Guillermo del Toro also has a juicy deal with Netflix, allowing him to do the peojexts he always dreamed of. Then again, it's friking del Toro.

@CharlesLeeRay - such a shame. I would have payed to see his Pinocchio movie it was so good.
CharlesLeeRay - 6/11/2024, 4:21 PM
@Gambito - Fortunately, in my hometown (also Guillermo's) it screened at selected theaters.

I skipped the second one and figured I’d just watch directors cut. The first one was fine but even at its long runtime it felt rushed so I’ll just wait for the real thing to be out
NGFB - 6/11/2024, 12:43 PM
I just don't get the hate and vitriol. It's a goofy sci-fi movie. What do you expect - Shawshank Redemption in space? Can't anyone just turn off their judgement and be entertained?
dagenspear - 6/11/2024, 3:32 PM
@NGFB - If it was entertaining and not obnoxiously pointlessly edgy, then maybe they would do that, but some may think it's not.

@NGFB - If I wanted to turn off my judgement and just be entertained, I’d watch sharknado, Sharktopus, Piranhaconda, and Santa Jaws.

We aren’t expecting Shawshank Redemption in space. We are expecting something with objectively better dialogue and writing than the movies I listed above which were intentionally written to have bad dialogue. Zack Synder unintentionally wrote really bad dialogue, the script is just awful. Also the slow motion in the wheat field? Really?
NGFB - 6/12/2024, 10:02 AM
@Murderisbadong - Lower your expectations and you might just be entertained.

Woot!! Looking forward to the super-extended farming montages.
Feralwookiee - 6/11/2024, 12:44 PM
Oh boy!
I can't wait to see the 17 hour long R rated Snyder Cut of Rebel Moon!

Does anyone actually care about this franchise?
Nolanite - 6/11/2024, 12:49 PM
Should I instead be a Snydernite or remain as a Nolanite?!
Can't wait!
Nolanite out
marvel72 - 6/11/2024, 12:51 PM
@Nolanite - You can be both.
marvel72 - 6/11/2024, 12:51 PM
I will watch this when I have time to.

Rebel Moon was a total disaster

Netflix and Snyder built it up as a new franchise that would expand to animation, comics, sequels and spin offs

Instead Snyder is left to promote an R rated version of his disaster
DocSpock - 6/11/2024, 4:05 PM
@WakandaTech -

Just to be sure, are you talking about Rebel Moon or the dead DCFU?

JonC - 6/11/2024, 6:34 PM
@WakandaTech - it was basically being promoted as a better version of star wars... more gritty.
BlackBolt84 - 6/12/2024, 7:29 AM
@JonC - I mean I haven't watched any Rebel Moon movie, but is it really any worse than the last few SW movies we received?

Idk if the strategy of multiple releases like this works. Directors cuts are nothing new, but I feel like Snyder has pushed it to the point where it undermines the original releases.
Moriakum - 6/11/2024, 1:13 PM
The hack is changing the original titles? And these new titles make no sense at all given the story of each movie. Snyder being Snyder.
If these extended cuts turn out to be a piece of toxic garbage too, do you think we'll get a Final Cut with more new titles? And then a Final Final Cut?
Batmangina - 6/11/2024, 1:33 PM
I'll be sure to add this to my Never Going to Watch queue
Dotanuki - 6/11/2024, 1:33 PM
Snyder includes more graphic alien sex to appease his young fans.
TheRedLeader - 6/11/2024, 1:35 PM
Great. A longer version of a bad movie. Who wouldn't want to watch that?

Hopefully there is more wheat harvesting in these extended cuts.
Mrtoke - 6/11/2024, 2:15 PM
Never really had a problem with Snyder.

He needs a reality check. But I can't believe ya really watched these rebel moon movies. Even the first one only. Ya need to check reviews before wasting your time. Even if ya don't care about the reviews, just listen to the word of mouth and not even bother checking it out. That's how less of his trash movies gets made.
AnthonyVonGeek - 6/11/2024, 2:32 PM
I can’t wait to not watch these.
xfactor - 6/11/2024, 2:51 PM
Lol boy is he washed up
NoAssemblyReqd - 6/11/2024, 3:27 PM
I didn’t even watch the current versions bc Snyder and co. admitted they were way inferior to the extended R-rated cuts. Why waste valuable time?
ThorArms - 6/11/2024, 3:35 PM
Completely new titles? Oh brother.
PartyKiller - 6/11/2024, 4:11 PM
Netflix is being robbed by Zack Snyder. It has been robbed by a lot of people and one day it will finally catch up to them.
