Synopsis:

Shortened to 133 minutes, focused on action and main plotline, with most of the character backstories removed or significantly shortened, this version relates heavily to 70s aesthetics but is not limited to it. The movie got used, damaged look and most of the music was replaced with some 70s (but not only) funk, rock, and cues taken from another movie soundtracks and some TV series themes.


Intentions:

To have fast-paced action cut with different looks and music, relating to Grindhouse aesthetics,


Change List:

Too many to list all of them (almost half of the movie is missing here). - Cyborg's backstory heavily shortened - Flash backstory removed - Aquaman backstory mostly removed, only some little hints remain - most of the subplots which were not important to the integrity of the story removed or shortened - movie ends just after Steppenwolf's defeat, no epilogue at all. - story restructured in almost the same way as in "Remixed" edit - Bruce starts to search for heroes after Diana's history lesson. - some sequences replaced with theatrical version (scene with Gordon on the roof, final part of tunnel fight, Wonder Woman's sword catching scene, Wonder Woman throwing the bomb in the air, Flash Vs Superman, diggin' up Superman's corpse) - some theatrical bits added here and there ("Save one person", "Playing well with others", "Aquaman being honest") - some BvS flashbacks added to opening scene - new opening credits sequence


Additional Notes:

The approach taken is not really "pure Grindhouse" - there is damaged look and most of the soundtrack is from 60/70s, but if something else felt right for the scene I didn't resist, so there are songs from 80s and from later years too. The audio is built around central channel from 5.1 audio track with added music and sometimes rebuilded SFX. This edit is based on my previous "Remixed" edit, so there are some similar changes to the structure of the story, the opening scenes are the same, but it's 60 minutes shorter. Mono and stereo audio tracks included, but in the stereo track only added music is really in stereo.
