It’s been known for awhile that director Bryan Singer would be releasing an alternate cut of his 2014 blockbuster X-Men: Days of Future Past, the critically acclaimed seventh entry in the X-Men film series that re-energized the formula, and did away with a lot of problems made by some of the series’ prior installments. Including Anna Paquin’s Rogue character, the cut is, according to Singer, “more than” an extended cut of the acclaimed film. Releasing the first clip via social media, Singer introduces what the concept of the new version is going for. See it below.
The seems to feature a perspective and subplot of the film that didn’t end up making it into the final version in any way, shape, or form, and looks like it may provide an alternate perspective on the scenes that took place in the dystopian future. When released last May, X-Men: Days of Future Past became the highest box office performer of the entire X-Men film series, and also became one of its most acclaimed. Critics lauded the return to form for a series that many had felt lost its way, with previous entries like X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men Origins: Wolverine singled out as lesser installments than the original 2000 film and 2003’s X2: X-Men United. The perspective of time and usage of both the “modern” cast and the cast introduced in 2011’s X-Men: First Class was also very well received.
Next May, 20th Century Fox and director Bryan Singer will release the next installment in the film series, X-Men: Apocalypse, which will complete the “First Class trilogy” and see the recruitment of Cyclops, Storm, and Jean Grey to the team. The “Rogue Cut” of X-Men: Days of FUture Past will be released on July 14th. For more on the new version of the film as it takes shape, keep it locked on GeekNation.
