It may not be able to match X2: X-Men Uniteds $404 million in worldwide box office, but Twentieth Century Fox has high hopes for the X2 DVD release nonetheless. Just as the box office was bigger for the sequel, you can bet that Fox execs are salivating at the thought of topping the 7 million-plus DVDs the original X-Men sold.
Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment is releasing X2: X-Men United on November 25 in a double-disc, special edition volume with a suggested retail price of $29.98 ($22.98 VHS). Fox is backing the release with one of the biggest marketing campaigns of the year.
The X2 double disc will include a number of extras, including commentary by director Bryan Singer and cinematographer Tom Sigel; a second commentary with X2s writers and producers; 11 new so-called featurettes including a behind-the-scenes look at the Wolverine and Lady Deathstrike fight rehearsal, an interactive multi-angle scene of Nightcrawler’s opening attack on the President; and 11 deleted/extended scenes.
