X-Men: Days of Future Past Blu-ray
Posted July 23, 2014 02:30 PM by Webmaster
Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment has announced that it will release on Blu-ray Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014), starring Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Ellen Page, Bingbing Fan, Nicholas Hoult, and Halle Berry. The release will be available for purchase on October 14th.
The X-Men: Days of Future Past Blu-ray brings nearly an hour of never-before-seen special features that will take you even further into the making of this epic adventure. From the background story and creation of the building of the Sentinels program, to a gag
reel of cast member's "finest" mutant moments, the Blu-ray is a must-have for any true fan and new fans of the franchise.
Official synopsis; The ultimate X-Men ensemble fights a war for the survival of the species across two time periods in X-Men: Days of Future Past, based on the classic 1981 "Uncanny X-Men" story "Days of Future Past," by writer Chris Claremont and artist John Byrne. The beloved characters from the original X-Men film trilogy join forces with their younger selves from X-Men: First Class in an epic battle that must change the past to save our future.
There's only commentary for the deleted scenes? I guess that's better than nothing, but the 2D edition looks pretty ugly. Sure hope Best Buy provides an exclusive cover that mirrors the awesome teaser posters.
It's funny. Walmart and Target indicate that lackluster sells are why they aren't carrying as many titles or as many copies of the 3D editions. Yet, amazon's sells apparently tell them just the opposite to include the limited edition helmet with the 3D edition.
I'm also curious why Fox has dropped the dvd from their combo packs, as well as itunes support from most of them, but haven't dropped the price.
@crazyman: Where've you been? The studios would MUCH rather we buy digital than a tangible product they can't control once it's been sold and have to share profits with distributors, not to mention the higher overhead or replication and expectations for extras from the collector market - where streaming is solely an alternative to renting. But I don't get your argument either way. How is the BD bare-boned? There are 10 extras on the disc!
Glad trailers are included on this one. They were left off of Origins and First Class. Hope the Comic Con trailer is included with "Time" as the music. but i doubt it will be. Second Screen is still a thing? I thought that died out faster than BD-Live.
Its a fair bet that the deleted scenes on this disc would've been the scenes restored for that extended version though that is not a certainty and frankly from what I've read in regards to what was deleted from the film those scenes were best left out as the final edit as it stands was pretty much spot on and to change that would just bog the film down in a big way.
Considering that Singer was discussing an "Extended Cut" before the film's theatrical release I am going to wait until the inevitable re-release with all the bells and whistles. Until then redbox will suffice.
Anyone else having trouble sorting through all the X-Men movies? This franchise is really suffering from over-saturation, to say nothing of the horrible title. "Days of Future Past"? What 17 year old thought up that "profound" title?
Hopefully that bottom cover art isn't what's going on the Target MetalPak, but either way, the MetalPak will be my purchase on release date. Just wish there was an extended cut available, but hopefully what's included will be enough to tide me over until the inevitable double-dip before Apocalypse.
I actually like the standard edition artwork, at least both Charles' are in wheelchairs as opposed to McAvoy standing. Looks like there will be no bonus disc included with the 3d version a la The Wolverine, so and Extended Edition will probably be a later release (if at all).
still under shock Synger didn't even try to adapt a 48 page story and didn't respect anything about the new characters he introduced (except Blink) and even changed major things in existing characters ... and the 70s??? Damn this period should be forgotten
I wouldn't put my bets on an extended cut. The deleted scenes are going to be on the disc, you just won't have them reinserted into the movie. People talking about the producers mentioning an extended cut isn't entirely accurate, as a question that was posed to Lauren Shuler Donner via Twitter about deleted scenes/extended cut got simply a "Yes!" response. So she might have just been saying yes to the deleted scenes and not the extended cut.
Fox seems to love repackaging these movies in different sets and whatnot, but I doubt we'll be seeing a "super special edition" anytime soon.
Hm. Not sure yet which version I will buy. But it looks they've more interesting bonus-features as the Marvel movies like Captain America/Iron Man. Thanks to Bryan Singer who gave us a deep-in-view of the first 2 X-Men movies.
