The X-Men Trilogy Mutates on Blu-ray April 21st

Not being a big fan of the X-Men franchise I find myself in the minority and happy to report to the millions of the X-Men fans out there that indeed yes all three X-Men movies will be coming to the Blu-ray format just in time for the launch of Wolverine’s new movie titled Wolverine: Origins.  Fox has announced recently that all three films will hit the Blu-ray format on April 21st and they can be bought either individually or in a special bundled three-pack collection.  The previously released version of X-Men: The Last Stand will be discontinued for the new two-disc release.  Also, now known are the technical specs and bonus features that can be found on each of the releases.

Each release will be housed on a BD-50 disc with a 1080P AVC MPEG-4 video encode.  The audio department will feature a DTS-HD Lossless Master Audio 5.1 surround track.  Each film will receive a second disc of extras.  Thos extras are as follows (the below information is courtesy of High Def Digest):

X-Men will feature audio commentary with director Bryan Singer and Brian Peck, an eight-part documentary, 20 behind-the-scenes vignettes, 12 internet interstitials, a Singer interview, the “Mutant Watch” Fox TV special, deleted and extended scenes, animatics, an art gallery, a music promo, TV spots and trailers.

X2: X-Men United enjoys two audio commentaries (with Singer, plus a producer/screenwriter track), the “Generation X: Comic Book History” documentary, an additional four-part making-of documentary, deleted scenes, art galleries, additional “Locations and Sets” vignettes, on-camera graphics breakdowns, storyboards and concept art, and trailers and TV spots.

Finally, the new re-issue of X-Men: The Last Stand boasts two audio commentaries with director Brett Ratner, the producers and screenwriters, over two dozen deleted scenes (including three alternate endings), a Brett Ratner Video Diary, the “X-Men Up Close” interactive gallery with stills and video, two Fox Movie Channel TV specials, an “Anatomy of a Scene: Golden Gate Bridge” featurette, additional Vignettes, Blog entries and “Previz Animatics,” art galleries, theatrical trailers, and easter eggs.

Exclusive to all three Blu-ray releases is BD-Live connectivity, which will offer an exclusive download preview of Wolverine: Origins. The discs will also come with D-Box motion codes compatible with D-Box home theater equipment.

Finally, each set includes a third DVD disc with Digital Copy (in standard-def) compatible with PCs, PSP and iTunes.

ONE HECK OF A PROMOTER!!! Also a Dreamer, Producer, Agent of Love, Film Lover, Writer of Screenplays and a Devoted Apostle to all things Ford Mustangs (the real ones with V8's!). Some of my favorite films include FIGHT CLUB, MOULIN ROUGE, THE DARK KNIGHT, STAR WARS alongside television shows such as SEINFELD, 24, SANFORD & SON and even the often loathed in the geek community BIG BANG THEORY. Outside of my three lives I live I also enjoy spending time with my girlfriend and our three girls (of the furry kind).
