One of the problems of having a huge roster in an ensemble superhero film is trying to find enough screentime for characters. Though Rogue (Anna Paquin) had a subplot in X-Men: Days Of Future Past, that was eventually cut from the theatrical cut, due to time constraints and being plot-heavy. However, we will be able to see that subplot in the upcoming DVD/Blu-ray release of the film.
The studio will be releasing an extended version of X-Men: Days of Future Past called the “Rogue Cut.” It will feature 10 minutes of extra footage, and will hit store sheleves in an unannounced summer 2015 date. Hit the jump to see what Days of Future Past writer Simon Kinberg had to say about the new extended release.
The news was first reported by Variety.
Here’s what Kinberg had to say about giving the film cut that fans deserve.
It’s a big chunk, a substantial part of the movie. We want to give (fans) the fullest picture of the film — behind the camera, and in front of it. … Every movie has scenes that are cut out, but not every movie has scenes cut out with such a beloved character.
It should be interesting to see how this cut will help the film. When Fox Home Entertainment released The Wolverine: Unleashed Extended Edition, it actually improved the film as a whole.
X-Men: Days Of Future Past hits DVD and Blu-ray shelves on October 14.
