by

The second biggest movie of the year, X-Men III:  The Last Stand, will arrive on DVD on October 3, 2006 to kick off fourth quarter DVD sales.

“It’s a big enough title that we believe it will perform from street date all the way through Christmas, and we’ve got a campaign behind it to ensure that it does,” 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment senior vp marketing communications Steve Feldstein said.

This disc will include the feature film, but is loaded with extras – the biggest being the inclusion of three alternate endings.  Additionally, the single-disc will include commentary from director Brett Ratner, a secret scene with Beast reciting Shakespeare, and the obligitory  deleted scenes collection.

The Hollywood Reporter is also saying Fox is preparing a collector’s edition that will include a 100 page commemorative book with a new Stan Lee story inside.
