Bryan Singer Tweets New Photo From X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST, Hints at How He’ll Shoot Quicksilver

Director Bryan Singer has tweeted yet another image from the set of X-Men: Days of Future Past, this time giving us a look at how he will capture the speedy powers of Evan Peters’ Quicksilver on the screen. The photo shows a very well lit set with Singer stating that he is filming at 3600 frames per second, as opposed to the standard 24.  It’s a well used trick that slows the action down dramatically.  The extra light is needed to make sure the image is exposed on the film.  It takes all sorts of tricks to make a modern action film happen.  It’s good to see that the tried and true practical filming techniques can still get the job done.

The film also stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Hugh Jackman, Nicholas Hoult, Jennifer Lawrence, Ian McKellan, Patrick Stewart, Peter Dinklage, Shawn Ashmore, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Omar Sy, and Halle Berry.  X-Men: Days of Future Past opens May 23, 2014.
