“X-Men: Days of Future Past’s” ‘Rogue Cut’ to Be Released Summer 2015; Will Be Distinct Film
"X-Men: Days of Future Past’s" “Rogue Cut” will be released in the summer of 2015 and will be a distinct film from the original. Read on for further details.
"X-Men: Days of Future Past’s" “Rogue Cut,” which was cut from the film theatrical release and evidently not added on the film’s first Blu-Ray release, will be dawning on the summer of 2015 according to Fox Home Entertainment executive vice president of marketing communications, James Finn. He confirmed the news via Twitter. The more than 10-minute “Rogue Cut” will reinstate Rogue’s rescue sequence, in which Magneto and Iceman must break Rogue out off a mutant concentration camp so she can absorb and use the wounded Kitty Prdye’s powers to serve as Wolverine’s time travel anchor.
“X-Men: Days of Future Past” focuses on two time periods and Wolverine going to 1973 to save the future of mankind. The film stars an ensemble cast coming from early "X-Men" movies and "First Class" movies including Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Halle Berry, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Peter Dinklage, Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart. Inspired by the 1981 uncanny X-Men storyline "Days of Future Past" produced by Chris Claremont and John Byrne, “X-Men: Days of Future Past” is directed by Bryan Singer from a screenplay by Simon Kinberg Matthew Vaughn and Jane Goldman.
"X-Men: Days of Future Past" received critical acclaim, becoming the best-reviewed film in the "X-Men" series, with reviewers commending its fresh visual style, story and acting. It is also the highest grossing film in the series, having earned over $746 million worldwide. A sequel, “X-Men: Apocalypse,” is scheduled for release on May 27, 2016, with Singer returning to direct.
“X-Men: Apocalypse” will follow the events of "Future Past,” where the X-Men universe timeline has been reset. The film, which is reported to be set in the 1980s, will see the return of James McAvoy (Professor X), Michael Fassbender (Magneto) and Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), along with the younger versions of the classic X-Men characters who were featured in previous titles. Lupita Nyong'o is rumored to play Storm, Jean Grey is reported to be played by a recognizable name, while Cyclops will most likely be played by an up-and-comer.
“X-Men: Apocalypse” will focus on the origins of the mutants and will complete a trilogy that began with “X-Men: First Class.” The pic's main baddies are assumed to be Apocalypse or his four horsemen, which were featured in the post-credit scenes of “Days of Future Past.” Actor Oscar Isaac is confirmed to play the titular villain of the pic, “Apocalypse.” Heralded as “the first one,” En Sabah Nur or Apocalypse, is one of the very first mutants born in the age of ancient pharaohs in Egypt. He is both thousands of years old and a monstrous tyrant that has been a longtime foe of the X-Men. He believes that only the strongest, whether mutant or superhuman, should survive. He is the master of the Four Horsemen, which has made several incarnations within the comic books consisting of mutants and nonmutants alike.
Filming will begin in April 2015 in Montreal, where “X-Men: Days of Future Past” was also shot and will be released on May 27, 2016, occupying the same Memorial Day slot for “X-Men: Days of Future Past.” It will be facing off against Disney’s planned “Alice in Wonderland 2,” similarly how “Days of Future Past” squared off against Disney’s “Maleficent.” The upcoming film will come from a script penned by Mike Dougherty, Dan Harris, and Simon Kinberg.
