Pressbox (Press Release) - X-MEN

THE FUTURE IS HERE…ON DVD AND VHS

What happens when an extraordinary video and DVD is released into an ordinary world? A release that is so anticipated it is destined to break the boundaries of traditional home entertainment? Get set for the most X-citing retail release of the year as summer 2000’s box office smash X-MEN is unleashed on video (15.99) and DVD (19.99) on 12th March 2001 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.

Bursting with state-of-the-art visual effects and a range of super cool characters, X-MEN on video and DVD also boasts an array of additional special features. The DVD contains three theatrical trailers, six deleted scenes, two featurettes, three TV spots plus interview clips with X-Men Director Bryan Singer, all of which make it one of the most powerful value-packed DVD’s of the year. Buy the VHS and it too will contain a selection of added value footage including 6 deleted scenes, theatrical trailer and an ‘X-Men Featurette’.

Based on Stan Lee’s Marvel comic book series, X-MEN introduces us to the children of the atom, born into a world filled with prejudice they possess extraordinary and dangerous powers – the result of unique genetic mutations. Cyclops (James Marsden) unleashes bolts of energy from his eyes, Storm (Halle Berry) can manipulate the weather at will, Dr Jean Grey (Famke Janssen) can read the minds of those around her.

Under the tutelage of Professor Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart), the world’s most powerful telepath, the mutants have learned to control and direct their special powers for the greater good of mankind. Danger beckons when Xavier welcomes two newcomers: Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) a solitary fighting machine who posses amazing healing powers, and Rogue (Anna Paquin), an alienated teenage girl who can absorb the life force of anyone she touches.

Openly opposed to non-mutant society is Xavier’s former partner, Erik Lehnsherr, ‘The Master of Magnetism’ known as Magento (Ian McKellen). Backed by his brotherhood of evil mutants, Toad (Ray Park), Sabretooth (Tyler Mane) and the blue-skinned shapeshifter Mystique (Rebecca Romijn-Stamos), Magento believes humans and mutants can never co-exist and unveils his sinister plot for the future.

Directed by Bryan Singer (The Usual Suspects), X-MEN explores the collision between mutant minority and human majority, the result of which is a sleek, fast-moving sci-fi adventure that offers the ultimate in stand-out futuristic action.

Trust a few, fear the rest…
