    Wasn't there going to be a longer Director's Cut as part of this release?
    Or did they rethink that idea?

    Buy now and have to buy it again not too soon when released again in Dolby Atmos as it was also released in Dolby Atmos. I'll wait.

    Fairly recent info...

    Based on that link, the big deleted sequences are not going to part of the director's cut and were never intended to. I frankly don't know how much "later" this year a DC could be coming. It would be foolish to not release it along with these versions in September.

    So,

    how many people will be canceling their pre-order and waiting until next year for the extended ('Rogue Cut') edition?

    I'm considering it.

    I'll keep my preorder. Who knows if next year's version will actually include the film in 3D. (A lot of times, the extended versions of films aren't in 3D even when the original theatrical was.) I appreciate them announcing the future extended edition in advance so I could make an informed choice, though.

    I'm also keeping my preorder for the reasons Josh mentioned. I am a big proponent of extended and theatrical editions on disc and have no problem with two versions of the movie. I'll end up waiting for a good sale on the extended cut next year, though.

    Unfortunately this is one my least favorite native 3D movies, Singer used the camera like he would have for a 2D movie.

    Yeah, I think I described it to someone as "the world's first 3D movie that's in 2D" for how flat a lot of it looked. But much the way some people would prefer a mediocre surround sound track to a mono or stereo track, I'll take mediocre 3D quality over 2D. (That said, I wish that Singer had been more adventurous with his use of the camera - Jack The Giant Slayer had some good 3D.) The other Fox movie this summer shot in native 3D, "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes", was also very two-dimensional. I wonder if it's just a coincidence or if Fox is pushing for a flatter style for their productions.

    He said shooting Jack The Giant Slayer was time consuming, he viewed footage on 2D monitors this time, in my opinion it's a complete waste of time shooting productions like this and Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes in 3D, this is what is killing 3D off.
    I won't, i'll watch the 2D version, same with the apes movie, if they can't do things right they won't get my time, point being if we buy into this rubbish they will start thinking we like poorly shot 3D and give us more of the same.

    I totally respect that. For me though just as a person preference, I genuinely would prefer to have mild 3D content over no 3D content, so I'll take the X-Men Days Of Future Past disc in 3D because it's more fun for me to watch it that way than it is for 2D. I completely agree that the 3D quality isn't at all what it could or should have been, but I'll still take that over 2D.

    I watched it this weekend and enjoyed it, but I would still put it behind First Class.

    Can someone explain to me how Prof Xavier had his body back for the future segments of this film? I have seen every other film, but don't recall anything ever explaining this. I do remember the post credit sequences of X3 and The Wolverine, but those still don't explain where the body came from.

    According to the movies (it's briefly mentioned in a throwaway line earlier in X3), the body belonged to a coma patient… I've been told by comic readers that Xavier had a brother who was brain dead at birth or something like that, so has been in a coma his entire life. When Xavier "died" in X3, he transferred his consciousness into the body of his brain dead brother. Or at least that's the closest to an explanation I've ever heard. It's kinda dumb, but there it is.

    Yes, I understand all that, but specifically I meant, his original body (Patrick Stewart). Sure it could be his brother who may look something like him, but did his brother also suffer a spinal injury that rendered him unable to walk? That's waaay too big a stretch; obviously we're meant to accept future Charles in this movie as one and the same character from the past movies. That's fine, just I was looking for an explanation of why that is.

    Yeah, the movies don't actually give us anything to explain it all. Basically I think Brett Ratner thought blowing him up looked cool, and Bryan Singer thought it was equally cool to forget it ever happened.
