LONGER VERSIONS OF ‘X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST’ AND, UM, ‘FIFTY SHADES OF GREY’ COMING ON BLU-RAY

It’s been known for some time now that an Extended Cut of X-Men: Days of Future Past will follow the theatrical version on Blu-ray after some time has passed. This version is to be called ‘The Rogue Cut’ as it will restore that character’s scenes which had been cut out. Moviecensorship.com informs us that the British ratings board the BBFC have already seen it and have given it the BBFC ’12’ rating just like it did with the theatrical cut of the movie. The duration in the database is 142:37 minutes and director Bryan Singer has said on Twitter that there will not just be 17 more minutes of footage, but also some small changes he has made. That probably means that the BBFC’s runtime is in 25fps and the Blu-ray will most likely clock in at 148 minutes. The database also lists July 13th, 2015 as the release date but that could still change.

So that’s one film that lots of people are probably looking forward to an Extended Cut of. Despite the huge commercial success of Fifty Shades Of Grey, not many people seem to actually admit they liked the movie or thought it was good, and I personally thought it was pretty lousy. We will be getting a longer version though. During filming there were some discussions about the likely rating for the film. Eventually, the expected ‘R’ rating was the result and a shortly teased ‘NC-17’ version was quickly scrapped. Universal Pictures have now announced that, while the DVD will only contain the theatrical version, the Blu-ray will also include an Unrated Cut that is said to be three minutes longer. Yes, all of three minutes! If this does actually excite you, than the release date in the US is set for May 8th, 2015, with a UK release sure to follow shortly.

About Dr Lenera 3157 Articles
I'm a huge film fan and will watch pretty much any type of film, from Martial Arts to Westerns, from Romances [though I don't really like Romcoms!]] to Historical Epics. Though I most certainly 'have a life', I tend to go to the cinema twice a week! However,ever since I was a kid, sneaking downstairs when my parents had gone to bed to watch old Universal and Hammer horror movies, I've always been especially fascinated by horror, and though I enjoy all types of horror films, those Golden Oldies with people like Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee probably remain my favourites. That's not to say I don't enjoy a bit of blood and gore every now and again though, and am also a huge fan of Italian horror, I just love the style.
