When the first images from the “X-Men: Apocalypse” set surfaced way back in April 2015, fans of the franchise were delighted to see the team doing something they do well: shop at the mall. Thanks to a number of beloved issues and episodes of the ’90s animated series, the X-Men have been inextricably linked to malls — and fans were eager to see that come to life on the big screen. But then word came that the entire sequence had been cut from the film, leaving it to be potentially included as a deleted scene on the film’s Blu-ray release.
And now the time has come: the deleted mall sequence is here. The scene popped up on Tumblr over the weekend, and it’s more than lives up to expectations. Set to Men Without Hats’ 1983 hit “The Safety Dance,” the montage includes everything that was previously teased about the scene: breakdancing Nightcrawler, a Boy George shout out, and Jubilee using her powers. This is a must watch for anyone that feels nostalgia upon hearing the phrase “does a mall babe eat chili fries?”
“X-Men: Apocalypse” releases October 4th, on Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K Ultra HD.
