For all of those champing at the bit to get a look at X-Men: Days of Future Past – Rogue Cut, better start looking for a way to crash Comic-Con. News came in today that the extended Rogue Cut of Bryan Singer‘s last X-Men film will be screened in its entirety at Comic-Con for audiences of dedicated fans looking to get more time with their favorite mutants, but especially Rogue. The screening will happen at the Reading Cinema in the Gaslamp District on July 11th at 8 p.m., and you’ll have the opportunity to gain two VIP tickets to the screening by purchasing a copy of the X-Men: Days of Future Past – Rogue Cut Blu-ray from either the 20th Century Fox booth (Booth #4229) on the floor or at the Nerd HQ/IGN Lounge at the Children’s Museum.
The screening will occur on four separate screens for die-hard fans and VIP guests. It’s not entirely clear as to what the deleted scenes involve, beyond some extra time with Rogue, but there’s certainly a lot in the original cut that begs for a bit more explanation, or at least might be worth expanding on. Check out the full press release below:
