Fox To Release Extended ‘ROGUE’ Cut of X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

X-Men: Days of Future Past managed to fit in a surprising number of new and returning mutants, but one it didn’t have time for was Rogue.

They want to know if special theatrical runs can both draw attention to a TV series (especially important with HBO’s stand-alone internet service on the way) and fill seats that might otherwise stay empty.
