“X-Men” 1, 2…oh yeah, and 3 (sigh) being released on blu-ray

Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment has announced the blu-ray release for “The X-Men Trilogy” with plans for an April 21st, 2009 release date.  While the box set will sell for an estimated price of $72.99, each film will be available for $34.99 (yea, right…that’s why we have Amazon.com 🙂 )

The specs for each film are pretty lengthy, so we’ve tagged them below.

* Be sure to check out the multitude of extra features that have been added to “X-Men: The Last Stand”.  I don’t recall the original DVD release having nearly as many features.
