X-MEN: THE LAST STAND UPDATE

Brett Ratner, director of X-Men: The Last Stand, said he will have a personally made behind-the-scenes look as part of the film's DVD release.

"I have a two-hour documentary on the making of the movie that I shot," Ratner said. "It wasn't like EPK (electronic press kit) crews coming by and filming me going, 'Oh, today we're filming the...'

"It was an in-depth making of the movie."

Ratner said he was excited about putting the DVD together.

"I think if you're an X-fan or a fan of this movie, it's going to be mind-blowing," he said.

Ratner said the DVD will contain new footage, but it won't be an extended cut.

"Probably 99 percent of the scenes I shot are in the movie, but there are other versions of it that were shot," he said. "Until I saw the movie, I wasn't sure in which direction I wanted to go. For instance, the Rogue scene. Should she get the cure or should she not get the cure?

"So there was a lot of variations."

ALEX ROSS PROVIDES COVERS FOR VIRGIN COMICS

Ross' first work for Virgin is the cover of Ramayan Reborn #1 (in stores Sept. 6). Ramayan Reborn is loosely based on Indiašs greatest legend, Ramayana, originally written in Sanskrit more than two thousand years ago.

"I have always respected and enjoyed the magic of Alex's art," Devarajan said. "His knowledge of classic characters and mythic elements provides unique perspective for Ramayan Reborn."

Ramayan Reborn is a post-apocalyptical reinvention of Indian mythology, told by author Deepak Chopra and filmmaker Shekhar Kapur.
