    Amazon has it for $17.54 pretty cheap.

    It's kind of odd for the set to be called X-men 1.5, as if the movie were a new cut, when it's not.

    That is false advertising. It isn't a new cut of the film. are we sure this is the real cover?
    You know those Canada people [​IMG]

    Fox and Bryan Singer have both nixed the new cut

    Oh my lord that's atrocious. I hope that's only the Canadian version if there is such a thing. Isn't this the ultimate useless double dip? No new cut, why are they bothering then? A few deleted scenes?

    There's no tricks. From the day this DVD was officially announced, never was it said to be a new cut or have an alternate score. That was decided against before the announcement. From DVD.IGN.COM:

    October 31, 2002 - 20th Century Fox has finally released the full and official specs for the upcoming Special Edition of Bryan Singer's X-Men. Officially titled "X-Men 1.5 Collector's Edition, the two disc set will arrive on February 11th and will feature Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS soundtracks along with a 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer.

    The full, official, list of specs is:

    Disc One:

    Enhanced Viewing Mode containing 6 deleted scenes and 17 behind-the scenes featurettes.

    Commentary by Director Bryan Singer.

    Disc Two:

    Introduction by Bryan Singer.

    The Uncanny Suspects Casting Featurette.

    X-Factor: The Look of the X-Men Costume Featurette.

    The Special Effects of the X-Men Featurette.

    Storyboard-to-Animatic-to-Film Comparison.

    Multi-Angle Scene Studies.

    Still Photo Gallery.

    Btw, I hope that isn't the cover. The original one is much cooler.

    I'm really dissapointed in the cover art and the title does make it seem like it's a new cut.

    I think it sucks they didn't include a DD-EX or DTS-ES soundtrack. Special edition my a$$.

    This smells of the "Special Edition" Men in Black they brought out when MIB2 came out in theatres. They're just trying to drum up hype for the new movie.

    I look at the specs and I see what SHOULD have been released in the first place. Oh well.
    I honestly thought they'd drop the "1.5" from the title when it was announced that a new cut would not be included.
    Marketing gone amok... details at eleven. [​IMG]

    That looks awesome! I sold my older copy a while back because I knew about this, it was kind of stupid though [​IMG]
    I shouldn't have sold it until like a week before this one comes out.
    The 1.5 is pretty stupid. They should drop because it looks like a brand new movie or something.

    Yeah, I sold mine too. File under "You Big Dummy!"

    Whoever put those early specs on the web either was a fanboy or someone deliberately out to mislead us.

    The "1.5" suggests something much more than just a special edition.
