Bryan Singer bringing X-Men: Apocalypse to Comic-Con, plus Rogue Cut of DOFP

06.30.2015

Soon after it was revealed that Anna Paquin's role as Rogue had been cut from X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST we were promised that a "Rogue cut" of the film would arrive on Blu-ray with the character's small arc restored. The Rogue Cut of X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST will be available on Blu-ray, DVD and On-Demand on July 14, 2015, but Bryan Singer will be giving some of you the chance to see it a few days earlier as the Rogue Cut will screen at the Gaslamp Reading Cinema at 8:00pm on July 11th.

In addition to the Rogue Cut screening, Singer also teased that he may be bringing "some stuff" from X-MEN: APOCALYPSE to Hall H on July 11th. As to what he means by that, we will have to wait and see, but the last time Bryan Singer brought "some stuff" to Comic-Con it was the first footage from X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST. Excited yet? So am I.

The Rogue Cut of X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST is said to be seventeen minutes longer than the theatrical cut and, while I never really missed Anna Paquin's character, I'm curious to see what differences Rogue's inclusion brings. My choice to hold off on purchasing the Blu-ray of X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST (having no money to spend on Blu-ray's is a choice right?) looks like it has paid off as the Rogue Cut Blu-ray will include both versions of the film.

Simon Kinberg on the cut scenes and Rogue:

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. The Rogue subplot was originally there because I wanted a mission for the older Charles and Eric to do, something like Unforgiven – two last gunslingers, Clint Eastwood and Morgan Freeman – that kind of a mission for them. I just loved the idea of that. Nothing in the story necessitated that, but just for a lark, I thought it would be a cool thing to see, because we may never see it again.

X-MEN: APOCALYPSE is scheduled to arrive in theaters on May 27, 2016.

Excited to see the new cut, but in my opinion Singer screwed up the character big time and Paquin was sorely miscast. Did not miss her one bit when seeing Days of Future Past.
