    Again, if this has already been posted please feel free to slap me! X-Men 2 will be released in region one on the 17th September this year. Don't really know much more than that other than it'll be a 2 disc set and will also be released as a doublepack with the X-Men 1.5 DVD. Artwork for both of these is attached below

    Sorry, I should have mentioned that it's a worldwide release on that date. I'm guessing as this news is so early though that things could be subject to change.

    Might actually get the box set...since I was thinking about upgrading to 1.5...
    What does the normal release look like?

    Anyone know why I'm getting a big "IMAGE NOT AVAILABLE" in place of the actual cover artwork for X2?

    I swear if there is extra footage on the re-release of
    X-men 1.5 I will be furious. Of course, there is nothing I can do about it, but it would be nice to know that there wouldn't actually be a possibility of a TRIPLE DIP especially if Singer apologized at the release of the double dip.

    We've already seen the top image, the one for X2. It was shot down as a probably home Photoshop job. It's the theatrical poster mapped over a DVD cover.

    When was the last time you saw a DVD cover with all the theatrical poster's text on it? What the hell's all them words doing in the bottom triangle formed by the un-X'ed portion of the cover? [​IMG]

    Nor do I imagine Fox making an X-Men 1.5/X2 combo pack that looks like the bottom image.


    Fox's press release system has no info or covers for the X2 release yet. Unless a Fox employee jumps on here and tells us that's really the cover, I'm disregarding it.

    Its probably fake, the discs do not look circular, they look lumpy and off.

    Isn't the movie called X2, not X-Men 2? Every poster I've seen features "X2" as the name, not "X-men 2", as shown by these alledged covers.

    OH MAN! This thread just gave me digital blue balls.

    For me X2 is without a doubt the most wanted title this year.

    I've been hearing mid-September for the release date too but this cover art is probably and early promo piece. But then again, Fox might not run the risk of people not knowing what X2 stands for (the idea sounds ridicolous to us but you never know) which would explain renaming the DVD to X-Men 2.

    "Clues that its fake

    -wrong title of the second film
    -second film appearing on top of the double feature
    -full credit listings on the front
    -the discs shown for the first one aren't the actual ones
    -"4 disc extreme edition of the first film"....there are 2 films
    -discs not even close to being a perfect circle"

    Is it fake? I don't know. DVD Answers seem to think it's real, or at least they have the exact same images on a page with the Fox announcement.

    Anyway, if these are real, I hope they change it. There were definitely better posters than the one used above for X2. As for the two film set, the X from the top half should carry on into the bottom half, rather than half an X in the top half, and a completely unconnected complete X in the bottom half. At the very least, they need to recombine the elements, rather than cut-and-pasting half of each disc cover.

    Oh gawd, now I'm in trouble [​IMG] Just to point out that it wasn't me that added the news article in the first place, I'm just helping draw attention to it [​IMG] I've spoken to the guy who added it though and he tells me it is from a legit source. The artwork certainly isn't the best though whatever it is.

    Even if it comes from Fox, that's a mock-up.
