X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST box office update. Plus, producer confirms extended cut DVD?


X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST reached an estimated $727 million worldwide after its seventh weekend at the worldwide box office. Domestically, the film pulled in almost $1.9 million during the July 4th holiday, bringing its homebase total to $227.4 million. X-MEN: THE LAST STAND still stands as the highest-grossing X-Men film here in the USA ($234 million), when not factoring in ticket price inflation.

Thanks to its amazing success with both critics (92% fresh) and the general public, the mutants of future and past have a true blockbuster on their hands, besting Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” ($711 million) and Sony’s “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” ($704 million). DOFP currently holds the title for highest-grossing worldwide movie of the year.

In other news, producer Lauren Shuler Donner “seemingly” confirmed via Twitter that fans can expect Rogue’s cut sequence on DVD and/or Blu-ray in a possible extended cut of the film. There are other deleted scenes, which director Bryan Singer recently recorded commentary for, which may be included as well.

    • It’s her real Twitter. She has tweeted personal behind the scene photos with Bryan Singer, Hugh Jackman, etc. Not sure why it isn’t verified though. 🙂

  1. It’s her real twitter all right, but I’m not quite convinced that she’s confining an extended cut, or simply reiterating that the deleted scenes will be included on the DVD.

    There has been no correction issued by Lauren or Fox in the wake of widespread reporting on this, so maybe…

    • I was wondering that too, that’s why I waited a while to post this news. Other sites are saying it means she confirmed it, but that’s up to interpretation. I’ll list it as a rumor for now until officially announced. 🙂

  2. Singer doesn’t really do director’s cuts, is my thing. John Ottman is his editor, and the two of them work together to cut all his films. What goes to theater’s is his director’s cut.

    X1 is the only exception; in that it wasn’t cut by Ottman. I could see a potential director’s cut of that movie as as possibility (assuming the raw footage still exists, and Fox were interested in spending the necessary cash), but I don’t really think so.

    Anything’s possible of course, but I remain skeptical.

  3. I hope they talking about a disc for theatrical movie and one disc for directors cut with all the cut scene and original plot. Talking abour Rogue and other deleted scene in one full movie.. I prefer that one..
