LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - The year's second-biggest movie is going to kick off the fourth-quarter DVD-selling season.

20th Century Fox is expected to announce Friday that "X-Men: The Last Stand," which grossed $233 million at the box office, will arrive on DVD on October 3 in two extras-laden editions.

The highlight of the third "X-Men" movie's DVD debut: three alternative endings, each with optional commentary by director Brett Ratner. The single-disc DVD release also includes 10 deleted scenes; audio commentaries from Ratner, the writers and the producers; a preview of the upcoming Ben Stiller movie "A Night at the Museum;" and two hidden "Easter eggs," one of the Beast reciting Shakespeare and the other of the X-Jet landing in Washington.

Fox also is preparing a collector's edition that includes an exclusive 100-page commemorative book with an all-new story penned by Marvel Comics master Stan Lee. It is his first original Marvel Comics book in five years.

In addition, Fox is packaging all three "X-Men" movies into a trilogy pack.

Paramount has already slotted "Over the Hedge" (box office: $151.7 million, No. 7 for the year) for October 17, while Fox has snagged the lucrative pre-Thanksgiving date of November 21 for "Ice Age: The Meltdown" ($194.9 million, No. 5).

Of the year's seven other top 10 theatrical releases, "Mission: Impossible III" ($133.5 million, No. 8), "Click" ($129.4 million, No. 9) and "The Break-Up" ($117.1 million, No. 10) are likely contenders for October, sources said.

"Superman Returns" ($180.2 million, No. 6) is a good bet for November, sources said, as are "The Da Vinci Code" ($215.9 million, No. 4) and "Cars" ($230.8 million, No. 3).

The wild card: "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest," the year's box office champ with theatrical earnings of $330.4 million -- and counting. While observers predict a December DVD release date, as was the case for "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl" in 2003, they said nothing is certain, particularly if the film's box office momentum continues.

Before I saw X3, I thought to myself, "Boy, was I stupid for buying this X1 & 2 box set."

Now?

I'm glad I did.

I wouldn't buy the collector's disc JUST for a comic by Stan Lee...remember "Just Imagine Stan Lee Reimagines the DC Universe"? That totally sucked. He is a writer whose time has passed him by.

Definitly buying the Collector's Edition. It sounds like it will be in the same format as the "Stan Lee meets..." comics which I'm eager to read.

I'll probably end up buying the collectors set just to have all three movies. I don't need the trilogy box set.
