  • The Theatrical Cut is the version of the film that was shown at cinemas.

  • The Director's Cut is the version edited by the Director, usually for additional home media releases.

  • An Extended Cut is usually any version of the film which is longer than the theatrical cut (though in very rare cases, its shorter).

Which one you should pick is an opinion that's up to you.
