Ex Machina & X-Men: The Rogue Cut among new Blu-ray releases this week

There’s something for everyone in this week’s lineup of new Blu-ray Discs, from sci-fi to comedy to classic films from the last century. Here’s a look at a few choice selections.

Ex-Machina-Blu-ray

For science fiction fans, Ex Machina is available this week in a Blu-ray Disc combo with Digital HD copy. While the film was already released to Digital HD, the BD includes bonus material such as a five-part making-of featurette, eight behind-the-scenes vignettes, and Q&A with cast and crew. Amazon reviewers call Ex Machina “Brilliant,” “Spooky and atmospheric,” and one of the “Better AI/Singularity” movies. Price: $16.99.

X-Men-Days-of-Future-Past-the-Rogue-Cut-Blu-ray-240px

When X-Men: Days of Future Past released to theaters in 2014, much of the footage containing the superhero Rogue was cut out for consistency and total-run-time concerns. Now, 20th Century Fox has released ‘The Rogue Cut’ from director Bryan Singer with an additional ten minutes of film and 90 minutes of new immersive material. The Blu-ray release also includes both versions of the film, as well as a Digital HD copy via UltraViolet. There’s also an Amazon exclusive edition that includes a Magneto helmet. Price: $19.99 or $62.99 (Amazon exclusive with helmet).
