“X-Men: Days of Future Past” Extended Cut Confirmed For 2015

Written by Celyn on August 05 2014

Even with home video sales continuing on a downward trajectory, Hollywood seems bound and determined to follow the same playbook they have used since the early ’80s introduction of the VCR. So even though “X-Men: Days Of Future Past” will be available digitally on September 23rd and on Blu-ray on October 14th, Fox has just announced that you’re better off not bothering with either if you want the extra bells and whistles.

Last month, franchise producer Lauren Donner Shuler mentioned that a director’s cut of ‘X-Men: Days Of Future Past‘ would be coming later this year. Now, Fox’s EVP of Marketing Communications, James Finn, has clarified, saying the first upcoming ‘DOFP‘ release will be have a theatrical release, with the extended cut dropping in 2015. So forget about that noise for the moment, and let the speculation on what all the extra material might be commence.

We already know Rogue had a much larger part, with an extended sequence where she absorbed Kitty Pryde’s powers after the latter was accidentally injured by Wolverine, which leaves Logan in the past longer than intended. There was also another subplot involving Professor X, Magneto, and Iceman embarking on a mission to rescue Rogue from the Sentinels. What more could there be? Considering that nearly every actor playing every character in the history of the X-film franchise was available, perhaps quite a lot.


James McAvoy to tour for “X-Men” film

Written by Celyn on April 22 2014

According to Deadline Hollywood on Monday, “X-Men: Days of Future Past” celebrities Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, and Michael Fassbender promote their global tour in celebration of the 20th Century Fox and Marvel Studios film. This will be an international tour to promote the film as these “mutant” celebrities make their way across the world to corresponding world premieres of the movie directed by Bryan Singer.

All three aforementioned actors, who play the mutants Professor Charles Xavier, Magneto, and Logan/Wolverine in the film, will get their start at the New York premiere and then join “The Hunger Games” Jennifer Lawrence, “The Hobbit’s” Ian McKellen, “Star Trek’s” Patrick Stewart, and “Game of Thrones‘” Peter Dinklage. Fan Bingbing, Ellen Page, Nicholas Hoult, and Omar Sy join the tour that will make their ways to cities such as London, Singapore, Moscow, Sao Paulo, Beijing, and Melbourne. At this point it is unknown which actors will wind up in what city.

This marketing attempt isn’t the first time since the days of “Titanic” and “Braveheart” in an attempt to promote to a foreign market. According to the trio in the presented video, there’s an attempt of one-upmanship as to who is traveling the greatest of distances.


3 New “X-Men: Days of Future Past” Featurettes

The promotion for this film is just relentless! A day after the ‘final’ trailer was released, three new featurettes have been unveiled online. Check them all out below:

“X-Men: Days of Future Past” Sting on “The Amazing Spider-Man 2”

Written by Celyn on April 16 2014

It’s not exactly unusual for superheroes to team up. Spider-Man and the X-Men have done so on numerous occasions in the comics, so it should come as no surprise that they are doing so again – sort of – on the big screen. But surprise! There is an X-Men: Days Of Future Past clip in the credits of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which marks a possible new era of collaboration between competing studios with Fox and Sony working together to make it happen.

Now this isn’t a post-credits sting as we’ve seen before in the Marvel universe, setting up some sort of crossover between the two worlds. Rather, it’s a new clip from the X-film that gives us a taste of the action we’re in for. We’ve been told by Sony that the clip will be attached to the film in the UK.

The scene featured sees Jennifer Lawrence’s Mystique, Lucas Till’s Havok and Evan Jonigkeit’s Toad taking on William Stryker (Josh Helman) and his military men. Without wishing to spoil anything, let’s just say that Mystique once again demonstrates her formidable fighting skills in the brief segment.

Presumably there have been significant negotiations leading to this point, and the comic nerd in all of us hopes that someone said, over coffee during a break in the meeting, “Hey, how about we get these crazy kids together properly?” At the very least, this could lead to, next time, content being filmed expressly for this sort of crossover activity.

Neither is this the first attempt at co-operation between studios sharing the Marvel universe: there were early talks to have the Oscorp building appear in the New York skyline of Avengers, perhaps envisioning an exchange where Stark Tower would show up behind Spidey. However, this clip is still a step towards a unified Marvel theory universe, which would be unspeakably cool – even if it is unlikely to happen anytime soon.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is out in the UK today. It hits US cinemas on May 2. X-Men: Days Of Future Past arrives on May 22 here and May 23 across the Pond.


Final “X-Men: Days of Future Past” Trailer

Written by Celyn on April 16 2014

What is being advertised as the “final” trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past was screened last night on American TV and has arrived nearly simultaneously online. While we’re not 100 per cent convinced it’ll be the absolute last promo (the film doesn’t hit cinemas until next month), it certainly delivers on the scale and the story. One word of caution: there are a lot of fun things to see here, but also parts of the movie you may wish to wait to save for the big screen.
