Zack Snyder's Justice league runtime wrong

Good morning All.

 

Very excited today to finally see the Snyder cut of Justice league, for which I just became a member today.

 

Started playing the movie and noticed the runtime was wrong. The run time of the movie is just over 4 hours as confirmed by Zack Snyder himself in numerous interviews. It also says on IMDB, that this is a 4 hour and 2 minutes long movie. For some reason, the runtime shown when you open it no Now Tv is 3 hour and 52 minutes. 

 

Wondering why it is 10 minutes short?

 

Best regards,

Saabi

@Saabi @gavs82008 it will be because the movie was shot on stock film at 24fps but will playback on UK TV at 25fps.

 

This article explains the process and changes in run times etc

I too had noticed this, @Izzie-T are you able to confirm the length of the Synder Cut for @Saabi ?

 

According to IMDB its 4 hours and 2 minutes, whereas on NOW it's advertised as 3 hours 52 minutes.

Wow, thanks for that. I would have never been able to figure that out.

 

Did some quick math and it plays out perfect

 

242 minutes: 242 x 60 seconds = 14520 seconds

 

14520 secs: 14520 x 24 = 348,480 frames

 

If we divide the total frames by 25 it will give us UK TV runtime

 

348,480 / 25 = 13939 Seconds

 

13939/60 = 232.32 minutes. 

 

Just thought I'd help someone who is as curious as me.

Give it some time. A lot of people watching it at the moment I would have thought. It will work. I am in the same boat as you 🙂
