‘X-Men’ Trilogy Blu-Ray Specs Announced, Set Hits Shelves In April

By now, fans of Marvel’s Merry Movie Mutants have seen a vast array of special edition DVDs hit the shelves for the three “X-Men” films, however, the folks over at Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment have upped the ante for the true film fans out there (in other words, those of you with drool-worthy home entertainment set-ups), announcing the “X-Men Trilogy” box set on Blu-ray Disc.

Collecting the entire “X-Men” cinematic saga — “X-Men,” “X2: X-Men United” and “X3: The Last Stand” — and boasting a bevy of bonus features, fans who pick up the set when it drops on April 21 can also take advantage of a Blu-ray Live feature in which they can purchase advance tickets and gain access to never-before-seen footage from the upcoming “badass” X-flick, “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” starring Hugh Jackman. After the jump, we’ve got the complete rundown of what X-fans can also looking forward to with the set.

From the Fox press release, “Boasting superior picture and sound quality for the ultimate viewing experience, the X-Men Trilogy set is loaded with deleted and extended scenes, cast and crew commentary, making-of featurettes and much more. The set also includes movie cash towards the new theatrical release as well as the studio’s upcoming blockbusters ’Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs’ and ’Night at the Museum: Escape from the Smithsonian.’

“’The X-Men Trilogy’ – ’X-Men,’ ’X2: X-Men United’ and ’X3: The Last Stand’ will be available for a suggested retail price of $79.99 U.S. Additionally each will be available individually for the suggested retail price of $34.99 U.S.”
