DARK PHOENIX Home Media Release Dates Revealed Along With Special Features And Deleted Scenes

DARK PHOENIX Home Media Release Dates Revealed Along With Special Features And Deleted Scenes

With its run in theaters already winding down, the home media release details for Dark Phoenix have been revealed, and the movie has undergone a minor name change. Find more details after the jump...

Dark Phoenix's box office run was a total disaster, but if you're keen to relive the action after it crashed and burned in theaters, you can do so when it arrives on Digital on September 3rd and 4k Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD on September 17th.

It seems Disney/Fox have chosen to emphasise the fact it's an X-Men movie by adding that more recognisable title to the cover of the disc. 

There aren't a huge amount of special features on the disc, but that's pretty standard for most big releases these days. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like the movie's original ending is included! 
 
Deleted Scenes with Optional Commentary by Simon Kinberg and Hutch Parker:
  • Edwards Air Force Base
  • Charles Returns Home
  • Mission Prep
  • Beast MIA
  • Charles Says Goodbye
Rise of the Phoenix: The Making of Dark Phoenix (5-Part Documentary)
Scene Breakdown: The 5th Avenue Sequence (Available on Digital only)
How to Fly Your Jet to Space with Beast
 
Audio Commentary by Simon Kinberg and Hutch Parker

If you were a fan of Dark Phoenix, then this will be a must-buy. Kinberg's audio commentary promises to be interesting, but the chances of him elaborating on the behind the scenes chaos which led to those extensive reshoots seems doubtful. Regardless, the deleted scenes sound pretty good and may shed some light on the many missing scenes from the film in the trailers.

some spoiler VFX stills from Dark Phoenix!



Jessica Chastain's forgettable shape-shifter tried to take the Phoenix Force for herself and here we get to see the power being transferred from Jean so the alien can use it to reshape Earth.
 


The visuals in Dark Phoenix were definitely impressive but this cloud of cosmic energy doesn't exactly resemble the Phoenix Force from the comics...perhaps it's somehow related to Galactus? 
 

 


Special effects were used to enhance this sequence (which is understandable) but it's still surprising to see just how basic the set looked before it was added to and imrpoved with visual effects. 
 

 


It's hardly a surprise that Cyclops' octip blasts were brought to life with VFX and here we get to see a before and after shot. These movies never fully explored the extent of his powers, though!
 

 


This is a very clever use of VFX as we see a practical helicopter which was then spruced up with VFX to make it appear as if Jean had used her powers to bring it to the ground and crash land. 
 

 


The train sequence was the result of reshoots but actually the best sequence in the entire movie! Here, we see the impact Jean's incredible powers have had on her surroundings.
 

 


Storm didn't really get a huge amount to do in Dark Phoenix and is nowhere near as powerful as her comic book counterpart. However, it's great seeing her unleash the lightning in this shot.
 

 


It's hardly a surprise that this train sequence was shot with green screen as it's not like it could be done for real. Here, we see that both Storm and the helicopters were added after the fact. 

 

 


The Cerebro effects in Dark Phoenix were pretty unique but it didn't really factor into the story all that much. Will Marvel Studios avoid using it? That definitely seems likely but time will tell. 
 

 


It doesn't really make sense how the Phoenix Force came to Jean in outer space when she actually tapped into it to defeat Apocalypse around a decade ago but this is Fox we're talking about.
 

 

 

 


Jean's powers first showed themselves when she was a child and Kinberg certainly wasn't afraid to retread old ground after he had already delved into the character's history in X-Men: The Last Stand.
