Postponed until Boys' Night Out
Defamer reports that the soon-to-be-DVDed Director's Cut of Alexander is eight minutes shorter than the theatrical release.
Why would they do such a thing? To, um, straighten it up, perhaps?
Is Warner Bros. trying to de-gay Alexander for the home video market? We'd really hate to lose some of the interesting moments which explored the young conqueror’s fluid sexuality. Without Anthony Hopkins' revealing voiceover that, "It is said that Alexander was never defeated except by Hephaiston's thighs, and occasionally by the huge, glistening cock that dangled between them," or the scene where the two fast friends are chased out of the Academy by rock-wielding bullies taunting them as "toga-biters," all [Oliver] Stone really has left is Jared Leto in eyeliner, a couple of elephants, and Rosario Dawson's unexpectedly huge rack. Maybe they think that'll play better in Oklahoma.
Gee, thanks for the cultural stereotype, Bunsen.
Actually, you had us at Rosario Dawson's rack.Posted at 11:19 AM to Almost Yogurt , Soonerland
