The "Rogue cut" of X-Men: Days of Future Past will be 17 minutes longer

04.03.2015

You may recall that Anna Paquin had shot and completed her role in X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST only to have her entire sequence cut from the film. It wasn't too long before we were promised that a "Rogue cut" of the film would arrive on Blu-ray with the character's small arc restored. News came out yesterday that the extended film had been submitted to the BBFC and was listed as having a running time of 142 minutes and 37 seconds, which is just over 11 minutes longer than the theatrical cut; however director Bryan Singer took to Twitter to clarify that the new cut will actually be a bit longer than that:

I wonder what these "little changes" will consist of; will they merely be additional scenes or could they even be a tease for X-MEN: APOCALYPSE? There's no street date for the Blu-ray/DVD release at the moment but it's expected to arrive sometime this summer. The release is said to be a distinct film with distinct extras from the existing Blu-ray of X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST, meaning that it will be complimentary to the first release and not repetitive. What does that mean you might ask? They want you to buy both.

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.

The follow up film, X-MEN: APOCALYPSE, is scheduled to arrive in theaters May 27, 2016.

Will you be adding the "Rogue cut" to your movie collection or giving it a pass?

I really hate when studios do this. It's a money grab. Put it on the Blu-ray in the first place.

If she had flight and strength I could see putting her in, but what was she going to do? Run up and try to grab a sentinel? I'd rather see more scenes with the future mutants vs. the advanced sentinels.

It's mostly scenes (in the future), before Xavier, Wolvie and Cie join the others. They try to rescue her from the sentinels, using her to do their adaptable power... Obviously, they fail, as she's not with them when they arrive...

I appreciate that this is appearing to be drifting away from the usual dvd re-releases but I had an x-men itching, I waited but I bought the dvd, Fox you've already got my money.

They told you it was coming right away. Your choice you bought the other one. Why dislike this because you have no patience?

I'm still waiting for the 'Cyclops cut' considering he hasn't been written well at all in any of the films he has appeared in thus far.

And I didn't realize that Rogue was such a vital character to do a specific 'cut' with.

I might give this a go. Daredevil's Director's Cut is almost an entirely different film from the theatrical version. This might be the same case with Days of Future Past's Rogue Cut.

Yeah, the director's cut of Daredevil elevated that film from crap to overly long crap.

I held off getting this film in order to get the extended version, so I'm looking forward to seeing what they have to offer. I'm actually surprised more of these comic book films haven't taken a LOTR approach with offering extended version on dvd/Blu-ray. Stuff that the casual audience wouldn't need, but fans of the source material might appreciate.

Agreed.
When you see the quality of the cut scenes from the MCU, it's really frustrating to know they don't intend to do so. There was a rumour, after the first Avengers success, that Disney intended to re-release the movie in an expended cut, Avatar way, but it never happened...
