Producer Lauren Shuler Donner has this week announced via Twitter the retail release (on Blu-Ray, at least) of a "director's cut" version of 20th Century Fox's recent superhero time-travelling blockbuster X-Men: Days of Future Past. The film, which served as a sequel to both 2007's X-Men: The Last Stand and 2011's X-Men: First Class, was launched in cinemas back in May to critical acclaim, though it only managed to earn itself a 3* rating in our review over at The Carmine Project.
Of primary interest to fans will be the notion of witnessing the previously-cut action-packed sequence involving Anna Paquin's Rogue being rescued from the Sentinels' clutches by Professor X (Patrick Stewart), Magneto (Ian McKellen) and Iceman (Shawn Ashmore) shortly before assisting Kitty Pride (Ellen Page) in maintaining her connection to the 1970s-bound Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) after Shadowcat is wounded mid-transfer. There'll probably be quite a few other scenes which director Bryan Singer intends to reinsert into his (presumably) extended edition of Days, and once details of said sequences arrive, you'll be the first to know right here at On-Screen.
X-Men: Days of Future Past will land in all good DVD and Blu-Ray retailers this Autumn.
