Zack Snyder’s ‘Rebel Moon’ Director’s Cut First Look: ‘Sexier, Bloodier’ Movies Get New Titles and August Release Date



After releasing his two-part “Rebel Moon” sci-fi epic on Netflix, Zack Snyder‘s director’s cut is nearly here — and it will have two new titles.

The “sexier, bloodier” versions of his Netflix saga will drop on August 2, with two newly titled chapters instead of two parts. Originally released as “Rebel Moon – Part One: A Child of Fire” and “Part Two: The Scargiver,” the director’s cuts will be called “Rebel Moon — Chapter One: Chalice of Blood” and “Chapter Two: Curse of Forgiveness.”

“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,’” a Netflix release says. “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.”

“Rebel Moon – Part One: A Child of Fire” was originally released on Netflix on Dec. 15, 2023, followed by “Part Two” on April 19, 2024. The new version follows in the same vein as Snyder’s four-hour director’s cut of DC’s “Justice League.” Snyder previously revealed to Netflix’s Tudum that the updated version will have around an hour of new footage.

“The director’s cut is close to an hour of extra content, so I think it’s a legitimate extended universe version,” Snyder said. “You really get to see a lot. It’s just more painted-in all the way. The director’s [cut] is a settle-in deep dive, which I have notoriously done throughout my career. I don’t know how I got into this director’s cut thing, but what I will say about it is that, for me, the director’s cuts have always been something I had to fight for in the past and nobody wanted it. It was this bastard child that I was always trying to put together because they felt like there was a deeper version. And with Netflix, we shot scenes just for the director’s cut. So in that way, it’s really a revelation because it gives that second kick at the can for big fans.”
