Justin Bieber “Director’s Cut” coming to theaters Feb. 25

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: The rumors have been confirmed. A different cut of Justin Bieber’s 3D biopic “Never Say Never” is heading back to theaters this Friday, Feb. 25.

Forty new minutes will be mixed into John M. Chu’s Bieber flick, which will be labeled as a “Director’s Cut” of the film, THR reports. The original take on Chu’s film will remain in 2D theaters, but the new cut will invade 3D screens across the country in an unprecedented move by a studio to repurpose a piece of entertainment to appeal to the same large fan base.

“I realized I had an embarrassment of riches when I was I in the cutting room,” said Chu. “This cut allows me to retain some of the best scenes from the original movie, while incorporating previously unseen footage and new material I shot during our extensive promotional tour on behalf of the movie.”

Will audience’s respond? “Never” is starting to lose a bit of its heat, dropping 44% of its audience but still pulling in an estimated $16.5M over the four-day weekend. It’s overall cume sits right over $50 million, but with the DVD window shrinking, won’t fans be able to see most of this new footage on what’s sure to be a blown-out Bieber Blu-ray when “Never” hits shelves a few months from now?
