In a rather creative attempt at marketing, theX-Men folks will appear on the Sci-Fi channel during the final run-up to the release of their film. On May 25, Sci-Fi will run exclusive INSIDE X-Men: The Last Stand programming between the hours of 7 pm and midnight during and between showings of The Hulk and Man-Thing. This special programming aims at being something beyond the standard "making of" TV documentary, however. It will be a Q and A panel with you, the viewer, invited to ask the questions -- although not in real time. You can check out the official site here and suggest your question(s). If you are lucky, your question might make it on air to be answered by the impressively large panel, which consists of Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry, James Marsden, Famke Janssen, Kelsey Grammer, Shawn Ashmore, Aaron Stanford, Anna Paquin, Ben Foster, Dania Ramirez, and director Brett Ratner.

I don't know how many people will tune in for this event, but I do think it's a rather clever marketing tool. It's nice to see something beyond the standard 30 seconds each "cast and crew interviews." Let us know what questions you throw into the ring, and we'll see if any of them make it onto the show.
