Coming Soon: X-Men: The Adamantium Collection (Limited Collector’s Edition) [Blu-ray]

OK, so maybe I don’t love the X-Men movies as much as a lot of people but one thing I can say is that this is a pretty sweet looking collection of all the films, thus far.

There is no release date as yet but the fact that it includes The Wolverine (which just hit theatres last week) then I figure it will probably be around Christmas by the time it is released. Would I buy this collection? No, as I already own the movies (sue me, I’m a completist) and I wouldn’t fork out for something just because it has a cool Wolverine claw… although it is pretty awesome.

X-Men:
Born into a world filled with prejudice are children who possess extraordinary and dangerous powers – the result of unique genetic mutations. Cyclops unleashes bolts of energy from his eyes. Storm can manipulate the weather at will. Rogue absorbs the life force of anyone she touches. But under the tutelage of Professor Xavier (Patrick Stewart), these and other outcasts learn to harness their powers for the good of mankind. Now they must protect those who fear them as the nefarious Magneto (Ian McKellen), who believes humans and mutants can never co-exist, unveils his sinister plan for the future!

X2:
The evolution continues in this “exhilarating thrill ride” (Seattle Post-Intelligencer) that features the extraordinary original X-Men – along with amazing new mutants possessing fantastic powers that have to be seen to be believed. In the wake of a shocking attack on the President, the X-Men face their most dangerous mission ever. They must stand united with their deadliest enemies to combat a menace that threatens every mutant on the planet. But could this new alliance backfire and annihilate the human race? Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman, Hale Berry, Famke Janssen and Rebecca Romijn-Stamos star in this breathtaking, action-packed spectacle that “may be the best superhero movie yet made!” (San Francisco Examiner)

X-Men The Last Stand:
Experience the awesome power of The X-Men’s epic, final battle. Join well-known mutant heroes and villains, and meet a cadre of all-new warriors — including Angel, Beast, Juggernaut and Colossus — in this thrilling, explosive adventure!
After a controversial “cure” is discovered, mutants can choose to retain their superhuman abilities or give up their unique gifts and become “normal.” When peaceful mutant leader Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart) clashes with his militant counterpart, Magneto (Ian McKellen), the battle lines are drawn for the war to end all wars.

X-Men Origins: The Wolverine:
Heroic Hugh Jackman “breathes the fire into Wolverine” (Miami Herald) — with a vengeance! This pulse-pounding action thriller sinks razor-sharp adamantium claws into the mysterious origins of Logan/Wolverine: his epically violent and romantic past, his complex relationship with Victor Creed/Sabretooth (Liev Schreiber), and the ominous Weapon X program that unleashes his primal fury. Along the way, Wolverine also encounters legendary new mutants, including Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) and Gambit (Taylor Kitsch). You’ll go “berserker” for this deeper, darker, more-spectacular-than-ever chapter of the X-Men saga!

X-Men First Class:
X-Men: First Class is the thrilling, eye-opening chapter you’ve been waiting for…Witness the beginning of the X-Men Universe. Before Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their superhuman powers for the first time, working together in a desperate attempt to stop the Hellfire Club and a global nuclear war.

The Wolverine:
Summoned to Japan by an old acquaintance, Wolverine becomes embroiled in a conflict that forces him to confront his own demons. In modern day Japan, Wolverine is out of his depth in an unknown world as he faces his ultimate nemesis in a life-or-death battle that will leave him forever changed. Vulnerable for the first time and pushed to his physical and emotional limits, he confronts not only lethal samurai steel but also his inner struggle against his own immortality, emerging more powerful than we have ever seen him before.

Legacy X: Wolverine and the X-Men (Bonus Disc):
Learn the true origins of the X-Men movie saga in this exclusive one-hour documentary that traces the incredible efforts of the stars, filmmakers and comic world icons who brought Wolverine and the rest of the extraordinary mutant world to life. Watch brand-new, intimate interviews with Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Liev Schrieber, Famke Janssen and many more…hear their stories, share their favorites moments and memories…relive the journey from comic book to the big screen that resonated with audiences around the world and ignited a legendary, extraordinary, unstoppable film franchise!
