By Rich Heldenfels Published: June 4, 2013

An extended version of the cult film is coming this month. The official word:

After a theatrical box office of more than $10 million, Writer/Director Troy Duffy’s sequel to the cult classic The Boondock Saints is back and bigger than ever when Sony Pictures Home Entertainment debuts The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day (Director’s Cut) on two-disc Blu-ray™ with UltraViolet™ exclusively at Best Buy on July 16th. 

The tough, stylized, vigilante-justice saga follows the boys when they return to Boston after being framed for the murder of a priest. Joined by a new accomplice, the Saints exact vengeance on those responsible.  At the same time, they discover a deeper plot rooted in their own family’s legacy of violence. The Director’s Cut features 27 minutes of never-before-seen footage, including a longer opening sequence, a lengthened fantasy sequence and an extended elevator sequence leading up to the Prudential shoot-out. 

Special features on The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day (Director’s Cut) include two commentary tracks with filmmakers and cast, deleted scenes, and seven behind-the-scenes featurettes. Joining original cast members Sean Patrick Flanery (TV’s “Dexter”), Norman Reedus (TV’s “The Walking Dead”), David Della Rocco (Jake’s Corner), and Billy Connolly (The X Files: I Want to Believe) are Clifton Collins Jr. (Parker, TV’s “Red Widow”), Julie Benz (TV’s “Dexter”), Peter Fonda (Wild Hogs, Ghost Rider) and Judd Nelson (The Breakfast Club, St. Elmo’s Fire). 



The MacManus brothers are living a quiet life in Ireland with their father, but when they learn that their beloved priest has been killed by mob forces, they go back to Boston to bring justice to those responsible and avenge the priest.
