The Fate of the Furious is available now on Digital HD, which includes an extended director’s cut that runs 13-minutes longer than the theatrical cut. But what’s featured in it?

While speaking to Screen Rant, The Fate of the Furious director F. Gary Gray revealed what sets his director’s cut apart from the version movie-goers saw in cinemas. Here’s what he said:

“I said, “Hey listen, my original was longer. Let’s figure out how we can put more action more laughs more character in an extended [version]. And the studio agreed that there was a lot of great stuff that ended up on the floor, so we ended up putting 13 minutes back into the movie. If you watch any of my movie you know I love humor no matter what the genre is, so there’s more humor – it’s funnier. More Roman, more lamborghini, more action, more hacked cars, more Cuba, more of some of the kind of the great’s action moments. But there’s also a few dramatic moments that I got a chance to let breathe a little. There are few between Charlize’s character and Vin’s character, so I’m really happy that they gave the audience option of watching an extended version. It’s a little edgier and funnier, so that’s what this cut represents and I hope that everybody gets a chance to see it.”

Directed by F. Gary Gray, The Fate of the Furious stars Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Jason Statham, Charlize Theron, Elsa Pataky, Lucas Black, Nathalie Emmanuel, Kristofer Hivju, Scott Eastwood, Kurt Russell and Helen Mirren.

Now that Dom and Letty are on their honeymoon and Brian and Mia have retired from the game—and the rest of the crew has been exonerated—the globetrotting team has found a semblance of a normal life. But when a mysterious woman (Oscar® winner Charlize Theron) seduces Dom into the world of crime he can’t seem to escape and a betrayal of those closest to him, they will face trials that will test them as never before.

From the shores of Cuba and the streets of New York City to the icy plains off the arctic Barents Sea, our elite force will crisscross the globe to stop an anarchist from unleashing chaos on the world’s stage… and to bring home the man who made them a family.

The Fate of the Furious is available today on Digital HD (which includes the extended director’s cut of the film), Blu-Ray, DVD and 4K Ultra HD.
