American Theaters Getting Shorter Cut of Babylon A.D.

U.S. to retaliate by creating shorter "European cut" of Alvin and the Chipmunks.

Oh, those greedy Europeans. It isn’t enough that they have universal healthcare and the Alps — now they’re getting longer cuts of our movies, too. Will they stop at nothing?

Twitch reports (via the production’s MySpace blog) that Babylon A.D. — the Mathieu Kassovitz-directed adaptation of Maurice Georges Dantec’s Babylon Babies novel that debuts on American screens February 29 — will be released in two versions. Look, it’s all right here:

There will be two versions of the movie : A shorter version for the US cinemas and a longer director’s cut for the European moviegoers!

According to Twitch‘s source, the European cut will be two hours and forty minutes long — giving Europeans that much more of Michelle Yeoh as a nun, not to mention precious extra minutes of the long-awaited acting summit between Vin Diesel and Gerard Depardieu. The world is grossly unfair.
