    Do you feel that all of the deleted scenes make the movie better? Do you think audiences would have liked the movie better if they had been shown?

    Most audience members went to see a summer event superhero movie that would serve as a grand finale to the X-Men series where they would have their greatest battle against their greatest foe. Because that is what the movie was marketed to be. Not a small personal story about the origin of Jean Grey and her struggling with psychological trauma, which it was made to be.

    https://www.mediaplaynews.com/x-men-...-sales-charts/
    That site doesn't make any emotional claims such as "selling well" or "doing good", and just lists the hard numbers.

    And that site still notes that Aladdin sold 92% of Dark Phoenix's Copies in it's 2nd week...which, again, Aladdin overtook Dark Phoenix the next week.

    And again, "selling well" can be a relative thing. Are there a certain number of guaranteed sales? Red Box alone has over 42,000 kiosks. If we assume (which is rather safe, but an assumption all the same) 40,000 copies of the movie as an automatic sale, then we look at the fact that Avengers Endgame sold 198,000 and 180,000 in it's third and fourth weeks...the numbers start to become less impressive.*

    And lastly...I thought it was obvious, but I'll go ahead and state it plainly..."selling well" in it's first week does not mean it has "sold well" over it's entire period of time being available.

    *You're free to help me find some hard numbers. Exact sales figures aren't available for DP, John Wick 3 or Aladdin (at least from here), and I only used Endgame because I knew it'd be an outlier and have outstanding sales.

    I know. You do not need to defend the movie to me. I saw it 3 times!

    The theatres had more people in it than what was being written at the times, but many people did not know what they were about to see. Some thought it was a new horror movie!

    I think most of them did. They added a little more depth to a few scenes and I think they would've benefited the movie, overall, if they had been included. That said, I can understand why they were cut. The movie still works without them.

    I’m not really defending it. I’m just saying the audience response still would not have been good.

    Me personally, I have liked the additional footage cut from movies as it adds in missing pieces that the director/producer/creative team assume that the audience will "just get" because they themselves get it. I think Jean should have had more flame-look, like what was originally intended, but even that would not have helped with the movie. It lack critical advertising and "presence" when it did debut.

    I just want more Dazzler scenes tbh. They scrapped a bit from Halston Sage's performance. Plus the song is DOPE!
    And yeah, sometimes the deleted scenes are way better than the movie on whole especially when they are well curated on the dvd/Blu-ray. Look at the first X-men film, the supplemental material is presented in such a rich narrative way that it's almost more comfortable Monet's as a film experience. I prefer watching all of it to the actual movie tbh.

    I know how you feel, my friend.

    I keep watching it too and I keep finding new reasons to love it.
