The edited version of "The Good, The Bad, The Weird" that screened at the Cannes International Film Festival will be coming to Korean theaters on August 6th.
"We received a lot of requests from the public regarding the Cannes cut of 'The Good, The Bad, The Ugly.' That is why we will be releasing that version of the movie to ten CGV theaters on the 6th," explained a representative of the film's distribution company, CJ Entertainment.
The Cannes Film Festival version of the movie is approximately three minutes shorter than the two hours and thirteen minutes of the Korean theater version. CJ Entertainment added, "The endings of the two versions are different, with the Cannes cut reflecting the end that director Kim Ji-woon originally wanted. We believe that audiences in Korea will be pleasantly surprised."
