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.”

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 metahumans 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.

  1. Foxtel better put this out in 4K. Their normal compression for HD does not have the bitrate of the colour space to handle dark, colour graded material like this film. Those of us who watched the dark GOT episode all know this.

    As someone who has Foxtel and really looking forward to the Snyder cut. I will not watch it on the platform unless it’s on their 4K channel. I will rent in UHD or wait for the 4k blu-ray if need be.

    Foxtel is very frustrating with their sub par video quality. I really don’t know how they get a free pass at having video quality well below any other pay TV platform. From SD channels in 2021, to varying video quality across channels. Also that thing they do to the audio to try and auto balance the sound. So when it’s quite, suddenly it boosts the background noises. Then as soon as someone talks it quietens down. Then if you get mixes of loud noises and…

    1. I agree, Foxtel streams files that create black crushing and poor contrast in some scenes, which also gives a washed out look for some shows.
      Netflix uses adaptive bitrate technology to adjust the bitrate and audio to match a customers broadband connection speed.
      It’s possible Foxtel don’t want to put all their technology investment into the streaming app basket at the moment, with all their satellite 4K set top box infrastructure needing contract subscriptions.

  2. There are a number of big budget movies waiting in queue to be released since last year and earlier and I suspect movie fans are losing patience, so this $70 million USD Justice League needed to see the light of day even if it also uses streaming services to do so.
    To give some perspective Netflix’s Extraction had 99 million views; Birdbox 89 million, and so on, so worldwide Justice League should do okay. 20 million views in the first week is equivalent to a $200 million USD cinema opening week.
