The wait is nearly over. Rebel Moon, which burst onto Netflix with Part One in December 2023 and Part Two in April 2024, will return for new extended R-rated Director’s Cuts in August 2024. Netflix confirmed that both movies will be touching down globally on August 2nd, 2024. 

In case you missed it, Rebel Moon is Zack Snyder’s big new fantasy sci-fi franchise. The two films currently on Netflix are PG-13 cuts, and in March 2023, it was revealed that there would be an extended R-rated cut akin to the one Snyder did for Justice League in 2021.

Snyder has been hyping these extended R-rated cuts for quite some time, and we’ve compiled a full list of what he and other people connected to the movies have stated in the link provided. To summarize what’s already been said, though:

  • Netflix and Snyder aimed for different versions entirely, not just deleted scenes, to attract a larger audience with PG-13 cuts first.
  • The extended cuts are not just longer versions but are tonally different, featuring more gore, sex, and alternate takes. Snyder has described them as having a deconstructive sci-fi element with heavy metal, violence, and sexuality
  • Official ratings and alternative titles include “Rebel Moon – Chapter One: Chalice Of Blood” and “Rebel Moon – Chapter Two: Curse Of Forgiveness”.
  • A new opening focusing on Noble and 30 more minutes of Jimmy.
  • Both have been officially R-rated by the Classification And Rating Administration.

Until now, we’ve only known that the director’s cuts were planned for sometime in Summer 2024. But today, Netflix and Zack Snyder confirmed that both movies will be available simultaneously on Netflix on Friday, August 2nd, 2024. The runtime of both is expected to be six hours in total.

Netflix has provided a new official synopsis for the upcoming movies here:

“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.”

We can reveal that the runtimes for the two cuts of Rebel Moon will be as follows:
