Michael Mann premiered the director's cut of the film during a retrospective of his films at the Brooklyn Academy of Music on February 10, 2016. This version is three minutes longer than the theatrical release, and opens with the hacking attack on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, rather than the Hong Kong nuclear plant attack (which has been moved to the middle of the film). Some scenes and dialogue exchanges have also been cut or shortened. This cut was shown on FX on May 9, 2017; several days later it was made available on DirecTV Now, Hulu with Live TV and other streaming services.
