There will only be 13 minutes of extra footage in the extended cut, but the trailer indicates that those few extra scenes will be worth the wait (and worth shelling out for). The trailer brings back the successful soundtrack of Queen classic "Bohemian Rhapsody," and offers some glimpses of previously unseen Joker and Harley interactions, including one moment when the pre-transformation psychiatrist holds up her former patient at gunpoint. (The psychotic villain, naturally, dares her to shoot, before wrestling the weapon away.)
It's unclear if this extended edition will make Leto entirely happy, since he's previously publicly lamented that almost all of his scenes were cut from the finished film, and 13 minutes isn't exactly a ton of extra time. But it should shine an additional spotlight on Robbie's breakout character Harley, who's soon due to get her own spinoff flick.
The "Suicide Squad" extended cut will be available in digital HD format on November 15, and on DVD and Bluray on December 13.
