Brief Synopsis:
The X-Men must unite again for the first time to defeat Apocalypse!

An extended cut of a movie that's already too long, but also wasn't long enough. Adding back some much needed character moments and connective tissue to a movie that moved a little too fast.

17 new and extended scenes have been added back into the film for a longer, fully and more complete conquest of the mighty Apocalypse!
Intention:
While watching the film, I did notice some moments moving too fast, or some things that moved a little too fast, so seeing that the Blu-Ray had a lot more stuff with Scott who was sorely underused, I wanted to make an extended cut of the film.

Delivers on the promises and enhances the storyline of this movie beyond the original theatrical cut thanks to the extra scenes.
My go to version from now on.

Minor audio hiccups while integrating one deleted scene (you hear the begining of the conversation between Nightcrawler and Jubilee before the new scene of Beast and Mistique begins), but an overall solid edit, as usual from bobson.
