So if you want theatrical and extended you have to buy two different packages. Blech.

I'm wondering if it's just awkwardly worded and the 3-D/Blu-ray/DVD package contains both versions of the movie but the single Blu-ray only has the theatrical version.

 

EDIT: The bottom of the cover of the extended version confirms that both versions are on that set.

But that means someone who does not want 3D will have to buy the 3D set to get the extended version?  Anyone see this in the theaters?  Was it any good?  I recall the reviews were poor.

I thought it was very good - better than the other so-called blockbusters this summer. 

 

That said, I am not happy about having to purchase the 3D copy to get the extended edition and theatrical together. Terrible.

I have not cared much for the X-Men movies, but my wife does.  So I'll probably pick this up when the 3D hits $20 or less.  Is the extended version in 3D?

Well, that's what the World War Z cover said, even though the theatrical was only on the DVD. So I hope that's not what it means. Of course, unlike World War Z, at least the theatrical cut will be available on Blu-ray, even if it's in a separate package.

 

I really enjoyed this movie, though. The plot gets a little too convoluted for its own good at times, but there are actually some good character moments throughout, and the action sequences are terrific. Also, the during-the-credits scene is kind of magical.

OK, the insanity continues.  According to The Digital Bits, the 3D version is only the theatrical cut.  The extended cut is in 2D.

 

So the extended cut is only available if you buy the 3D version, but then it is only in 2D in that package.

 

WTF!?  Who were the marketing geniuses who thought this up?  This is worse than the Star Trek fiasco...

They probably didn't want to spend a small fortune on converting the 'new' 40 minutes of footage to 3-D.

I agree it'd be nice if the extended cut was available without having to buy 3D, but I can't agree that it's worse than the Star Trek mess. And it's also better than World War Z, where you can't get the 2D theatrical cut on Blu-ray at all.

 

At least with Wolverine, if you buy the biggest set, you are actually getting all the material.

There's been no confirmation the extended cut is 40 minutes longer. I believe the director said it was more like 13 minutes.

Unfortunately, whether they're converting 40 or 13 minutes, it's still going to cost way more money than is going to be spent on a home video release.
