20th Century-Fox Home Entertainment cut loose this week with not one, but two summer hits that will be hitting retail during the post-Labor Day period.
Using this year’s Comic-Con International creature-fest to announce an Oct. 14 street date for director Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past was a smart use of the annual venue — sci-fi, horror, fantasy … it’s the perfect venue for films and franchises with such themes.
Planned for that date are a three-SKU helping: A stand-alone DVD edition and Blu-ray editions with or without a 3D presentation (premium is ten bucks).
The ARR comes in at 144 days and summer theatrical revenues currently stand at $230.5 million.
Bonus features include a gag reel, a half-dozen featurettes and deleted scenes with commentary by Bryan Singer.
Also getting a street date is director Josh Boone’s hit film adaptation of John Green’s best-selling weeper, The Fault in Our Stars.
The street date for DVD and Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack editions is Sept. 16. There is also a “Little Infinities Edition” for Blu-ray that includes an extended presentation of the film.
The ARR comes in at 102 days and ticket sales are $121.6 million.
Bonus features include commentary from filmmaker Josh Boone, who is joined by author John Green … six deleted scenes and six featurettes.
