    I didn't know the movie had a sneak extra 30 secs after the cedits. It was a powerful moment to see such an iconic character die.

    And now, not.

    It is now in 48th place for earnings. It just pushed Spielberg's The Lost World into the 49th position.

    I didn't expect it to do this much better than X2; even though I loved it.

    Tomorrow should be a fun day for some (including me).

    I will be going to Best Buy tomorrow to pick up my copy of the X-men 3 DVD and the long awaited release of a new studio album from Evanescence.

    Is there anything else coming out?

    I'm still debating on whether to get the X-Men: The Last Stand DVD tomorrow just because of the Special Edition one to come out in the future with more special features.

    SG-1 season 9 and a very intersting special edition of Monty Python and the Holy Grail (thats what I'll be picking up).

    Conor there is a special edition coming out tommorow which will actually have somethings that aren't going to be in any later releases (if you are so inclined).

    From what I've looked up the only additional thing on the "Special Edition" that comes out tomorrow will be a 100page comic book story.

    I'm just too impatient. This one will probably have commentaries, etc anyway. I didn't bother getting X-men 1.5 when it came out.

    Which is something that probably won't be in later releases :p

    I wasn't sure if that was the only thing or not though.

    the main thing i'm interested in is the deleted scenes and alternate ending. in the Region 1 dvd there's only going to be 10 deleted scenes while in the Region 2(UK) there supposed to be around 20. this is what's making me hesitant on getting it right away

    I haven't bought the DVD and don't plan to but...

    This is what I heard about the deleted scenes:

    - UK release has 22 scenes (but two are the same)

    - US release was supposed to have 10 (and the remaining 11 were intended for a later 'special edition' type released), but Fox goofed and some copies have all 21.

    the_a1ant on SHH claims to have gotten this in an email from a source the other day:

    I work at Fox and want to tell everyone about a BIG error -
    FOX by accident included 21 pieces of Value Added deleted scenes on the
    DVD on only some of the DVDS. These extra features were supposed to be
    held for the second special edition DVD release later next year. If
    your DVD only has 10 pieces of VAM you can return it for a refund.

    If you don't believe me, when you buy it compare your DVD with your
    friends


    This seems to be confirmed by what folks over there are saying about their copies.

    Just watched the DVD. About the same as I saw it in the theater. Better than the original but behind X2. Needs an EE desparately.

    I never did see this in the theaters because I didn't want to. But tonight I caved and bought it...and it wasn't that bad! It suprised me as I was watching it that it wasn't the train wreck I thought it was going to be. I'd even say I like it more than the first film. I feel X2 is better, but it's hardly the disaster some were saying. I'm gonna watch it again tomorrow and blast the surround sound, since I watched it kind of late and had to keep it down.

    I also got the version with the 21 deleted scenes. I saw on the back of the case that it had 10, but as I watched they just kept coming and was wondering if they goofed. Glad they screwed it up, so I can say **** off to the double dip that's coming.:p

    The only reason I'll get another edition is if it's an extended or uncut version.

    How do you know if you have 21 or 10 deleted scenes?

    Where did you find the 11 extras?

    I kind of liked Wolverine going back to Alberta and seeing the bartender from the first movie again. But I would hardly call it an alternate ending. Just a deleted scene that happens to be at the end of the movie.

    That was sorta cool, but none of them were actually alternate endings. Color me dissapointed.

    For the majority, I liked the deleted scenes and alternate endings.
