With Labor Day behind us and school back in session, summer in the US is officially over, at least from a cultural perspective. So it’s time to tally the box-office receipts from what has been the biggest movie season over the past thirty years.
The good news? Revenue is up from last year. The bad news: revenue is up by less than one percent. More troubling: after taking into account that a good portion of the overall revenue came from inflated 3D prices, analysts reveal that attendance was actually down this year. about 543 million tickets were sold this summer, which is the lowest number since 1997′s famous summer of 540 million tickets. (OK, perhaps not so famous.) But wait, there’s more! 2011 is the fourth consecutive year f dwindling summer movie attendance. Read More »

NOTE: Because we experienced some issues with our previous exclusive clip, Fox has asked that we remove that one and replace it with this one. Our apologies for any confusion this might have caused.
One of the biggest surprises of the summer was Matthew Vaughn‘s X-Men: First Class. A film that was rumored to be rushed and have all kind of production issues turned out to be the best X-Men film since Bryan Singer was behind the camera. The cast, including star making performances from James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender, was stellar, the action was top notch, the writing was sharp and at the end, almost everyone was left hoping to see where this period reboot of the X-Men franchise would go next.
While we still don’t know the answer to that question, you can soon dive headfirst into X-Men: First Class on Blu-ray. It’ll be released September 9 and has a ton of special features including several deleted and extended scenes. Slashfilm is proud to exclusively debut one of these scenes after the jump. It shows a bit more of what Sebastian Shaw (Kevin Bacon) has planned for the world as Charles Xavier (McAvoy) looking into the mind of Emma Frost (January Jones). Read More »
