X-Men 1.5

Blaine Kyllo

Last fall, production for the film X-Men 2 set up in Vancouver, and as we await the theatrical release of the movie, the studio has issued a new DVD version of the first film. X-Men 1.5 (20th Century Fox) includes a new cut of the original film (which, by the way, was shot in and around Toronto), into which deleted scenes have been integrated. So, while you watch the movie, you automatically view scenes that were cut. There are also hours of additional behind-the-scenes footage showing sets being built, scenes being filmed (including some great stunt sequences), special effects being created, and a tour through the sets that were constructed in Vancouver for the sequel, scheduled to hit theatres on May 2.
