The Australian PREMIERE of Warner Bros. Pictures and DC full-length original feature Zack Snyder’s Justice League will be available on BINGE and Foxtel at the same time as the global premiere in a massive win for Aussie fans.
Premiering 18 March 6pm AEDT, the release of Zack Snyder’s Justice League has been hugely anticipated following global passionate fan calls to action and the #ReleaseTheSnyderCut movement. Australian fans will get to see it the same date, day and time as the rest of the world.
In Zack Snyder’s Justice League, determined to ensure Superman’s (Henry Cavill) ultimate sacrifice was not in vain, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) aligns forces with Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) with plans to recruit a team of meta-humans to protect the world from an approaching threat of catastrophic proportions. The task proves more difficult than Bruce imagined, as each of the recruits must face the demons of their own pasts to transcend that which has held them back, allowing them to come together, finally forming an unprecedented league of heroes. Now united, Batman (Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher) and The Flash (Ezra Miller) may be too late to save the planet from Steppenwolf, DeSaad and Darkseid and their dreadful intentions.
#ReleaseTheSnyderCut first became a passionate rallying social media cry among fans in 2017 and has not let up. From countless press articles and hundreds of thousands of social media mentions, it became a powerful global movement among cinephiles and comic book fans.
BINGE Executive Director, Alison Hurbert-Burns, said:
“Australia, mark your calendars and get ready because BINGE is bringing you this special film event. DC’s incredibly passionate fanbase broke the internet and have been lobbying to watch Snyder’s cut for many years and the wait is nearly over.
“BINGE is committed to bringing the world’s best entertainment to Australians. And now, not only will Aussie fans get to stream Zack Snyder’s Justice League, they’ll do so at the same time as the global premiere, which is a fantastic outcome.
“If you want the best entertainment in the world right now you need BINGE. And at just $10 a month, it’s unbeatable value.”
