Until now, yes. I don't know if they will release another one. I don't know how it would be received but it seems to me the new company is really pushing it (at least in the USA, promotional material worldwide isn't very ambitious. A few days ago I saw a very cheap new poster for, I think, Asian markerts) so it won't be weird if they release a new trailer.
I think that, in general, film critics really like Benedict and want to like his movies, so I’m sure they will keep an open mind and give the movie another shot. This will also give them the opportunity to put some blame on HW if they disliked the earlier version - because you know that the HW scandal will surely still be mentioned in any reviews.
It might also help the box office that since the TIFF premiere, Tom Holland has become Spider-Man. Both he and Nicholas Hoult will bring their own (young) fans to the movie.
Well, I just saw Twitter Film critics (the ones who are "professional" but mostly famous for posting their shallow comments on Twitter), having a very closed mind about it. It being finally released is apparently "living in hell"! So yes, it's good to see a few waiting and see instead of being overly melodramatic about it.
I saw The Current War at TIFF, and I found it to be mostly enjoyable. That said, director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon was unhappy with the version shown at the fest. “I knew in my heart, and every fiber of my body was saying, it’s not ready. I was drowning in notes, to the point I was addressing them more than editing the film,” the director told Deadline.
Harvey Weinstein apparently wasn’t happy either, because he personally started recutting the movie after the premiere, something that understandably upset Gomez-Rejon. After The Weinstein Company fell apart, however, Gomez-Rejon was given a second chance to get things right. Since then, he’s recut the film into the version he always wanted. “Everything missing is there now, including the right pacing that escalates the tension between these two men,” He said. “The heart of the film is restored.”
I checked which Weisntein movies have been re-released with a director’s cut. I remember the polemic around Grace Kelly bio. Cannes Film Festival put themselves on the director’s side and released his version during his ugly fight with Weinstein but it didn’t work. It was awfully received and it kind of gave the reason to Weinstein. I found that there is an alternate version of 54 and this review gives me hopes:
Well, Grace Kelly's biopic was awful and I don't think any kind of cutting or re-editing could have saved it. It is easily one of the worst biopics I have ever seen and I have seen a lot of bad biopics because it is not an easy genre to do it right.
