Terminator Salvation Director's Cut Rated R?

I suppose this isn't too surprising, but what few flies on the wall that know anything about "Salvation's" home video release are buzzing loudly: Supposedly the DVD/Bluray release of the fourth Terminator film will include slightly more violent footage and Moon Bloodgood's nudity. This is all speculation because, according to McG, very little was cut from the movie. (Other than Moon Bloodgood nude.) So why a director's cut? Well...

While I greatly enjoyed "Salvation," it's also a very flawed movie and it didn't exactly blow up at the box office. I'm not sure how much a risque shot and rise in brutality will help the film, but a "director's cut is always a 'sure fire' strategy to help sales...err...right?

In the meantime, I'm wondering if it's ever coming out on home video. No one seems to know an exact release date, other than "mid-November." This is subject to change, but I wonder if Warner Brothers' is changing up their marketing strategy for the film's video release beyond a simple "director's cut." If so it might be why we have release dates for "Star Trek" and the later released "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" but no "Salvation."

I look forward to it either way. Maybe more Arnold in the director's cut? Please?
