    I just read over at dvdfile.com that 20th century fox is gonna discontinue the current x-men dvd and there will be a new dvd with an extended version of the film to coincide with x-men 2. Just for everyone's info, X-Men 2 doesn't come out till May 2nd, 2003. Hope this new dvd has dts and lots and lots of extras. Can't wait!

    I'm willing to bet this is basically the same DVD in a different package - similar to the "new" Men in Black coming out.

    I just checked out DVD file and I don't see anything about an extended version.

    And no, Fox never said that there wouldn't be another X-Men DVD.

    Singer and Fox have said a couple of times X-Men would warrant a better special edition treatment around the time of the sequel's release. Singer likes time to pass so he can reflect better on the experience of having made a movie a few years after it's initial release. Makes good sense to me.

    The current disc is disscontinued in June I believe.

    X2 (as in X-squared) is just beginning filming I think. Most of the cast was more than pleased to come back and there may have been some kind of stipulations in their original contracts that locked them to sequels. Either way, it won't be out until summer 2003.

    See, I recall just the opposite: I thought the possibility of a future SE was alluded to one more than one occasion.

    I was very pleasantly surprised by this film. I'll consider a SE if significant content is added.

    i've always been an x men fan and i loved the film as it was.. then one day i heard that brian ended up cutting about an hour and a half of footage and since that day.. i have been eagerly awaiting alot more of that footage showing the light of day. this is the best news i've heard in a while and i can't wait til this disk comes out.

    I actually recall Peter Staddon saying that no such disc was being worked on *at that time*, but that it might be revisited to co-incide with the sequel.

    That said, I can't say that I'm interested in another version of this movie on DVD, unless it's some sort of director's cut or something. The current disc has awesome picture and sound, and that's the most important to me. How much better can the video and audio be on a new disc? That's the way I feel about it anyway. To each his own.

    Regards,

    Dan

    I for one can't wait. I'll definately be buying it. X2 begins filming in May 2002 with most of the cast returning except for Ray Park who played Toad because he is gonna star in Iron Fist...but maybe he'll have a small part. And X2 will begin the summer season of 2003 in the beginning of May. So the new dvd might come out somewhere in that time frame. Also it was my mistake about the extended version...I thought it said that it would contain an extended version of the film but it actually said special edition version which I hope would have an extended version via branching unlike the current dvd which makes you press a stupid button to get the extended cut. Also, hope it contains dts. And this time let it be a keep case this time around.

    Damn, a new X-Men dvd? And I thought the 2disc release was gorgeous enough! I wonder if a DTS track would sound any better?!
