The Red Sox premiered their 2013 World Series championship DVD Monday night at the Wang Theatre. It is available on sale in stores Tuesday.

Narrator Ben Affleck, who is already in some hot water after being named the next "Batman," didn't win over any support in Gotham with his special message to Yankees' fans in the version of the film shown Monday night:

Oscar-worthy dialogue for sure. The line was edited into the premiere version film that was shown Monday night and sadly will not appear in the DVD offered for sale to the public.

The crowd at the Wang Theater went wild with applause after Affleck's shot, which came in the movie right after the Red Sox were shown winning the World Series at Fenway Park for the first time in 95 years.

David Ross, Will Middlebrooks and honchos from the Red Sox front office walked a red carpet and were joined by season ticket holders and others for the premiere. The film starts on Patriots Day and chronicles the season through the World Series. It also includes a music video called "This Beard Came Here to Party."
