X-Men: The Last Stand
Though I think I would rather play X2:
X-Men United any day over X3:
The Last Stand, it is still nice to complete the collection
the beginning of this October with the final installment coming to DVD.
X-Men 3: The Last Stand on DVD October 3rd
According to Reuters,
20th Century Fox is expected to announce today that X-Men: The Last
Stand will arrive on DVD on October 3 in two extras-laden
Fox, who hopes to pull in quite a bit off the DVD release of X3, has packed
the DVD release with tons of extra features. One such highlight of the third
X-Men movie's DVD debut: three alternative endings, each
with optional commentary by director Brett Ratner. The single-disc DVD release
also includes 10 deleted scenes; audio commentaries from Ratner, the writers
and the producers.
To go unnecessarily beyond the call, Fox has also included a preview of
the upcoming Ben Stiller movie A
Night at the Museum (I think we call that 'synergy') and two
hidden "Easter eggs," one of the Beast reciting Shakespeare and the other
of the X-Jet landing in Washington.
Fox also is preparing a collector's edition that includes an exclusive 100-page
commemorative book with an all-new story penned by Marvel Comics master
Stan Lee. It is his first original Marvel Comics book in five years.
Fox will also include the new DVD among a trilogy box set.
Besides X-Men: The Last Stand, Fox has an entire slew of
films prepping for DVD release including Ice Age: The Meltdown
on November 21st.
Like the summer, the competition for DVD release dates over the next few
months is expected to be tough.
