Tech specs, bonus materials and such have not yet been detailed. Stay tuned for an update when more information regarding this release develops.

Fox is bringing an “X-Men 3-Film Collection” to 4K UHD Blu-ray in September

x-men_3-film_collection_4k.jpg

The first three films in the “X-Men” film franchise will be getting released in the form of the X-Men 3-Film Collection on the 4K UHD Blu-ray format on September 25th via Fox, according to retailer listings. The title has not yet officially been announced by the studio, so we don’t have any specific tech specs to go on here. It’s worth noting that this joins the three latter “X-Men” films already available on the format, also released bundled together, but also separately. No word yet on if these will receive individual releases, like the latter films, anytime soon or not.

The release will be a 6-disc “combo pack” with the Blu-ray Discs of the three films also included, along with a Digital Copy of each film. The three films included in this set are “X-Men” (2000), “X2: X-Men United” (2003) – both directed by Bryan Singer – and “X-Men: The Last Stand” (2006) directed by Brett Ratner. The 4K set is now available for PRE-ORDER over at Amazon. Yes, I know, Amazon is listing it titled “trilogy” but the artwork I’ve found (pictured above) makes me think it will get the released under the title mentioned above.

EDITORIAL NOTE: The artwork (pictured above) comes from UK retailer HMV, and is of the UK version. However, it could be what we see here stateside. Just note that is perhaps not the final or US cover art. It’s only used for the news story as a visual placeholder. Once we see any different artwork appear this post will be updated. Rest assured, and, again, stay tuned for updates on this release.
