X-Men: Days Of Futures Past director Bryan Singer has tweeted a picture of the X-Men set he’s filming on! On the tweet Singer wrote ‘Brightest set I’ve ever filmed on‘ and with #Quicksilver and #3600 frames per second.
3600 frames per second is a lot more than your standard framing. This results in a slow motion effect at approximately 150 times slower than your standard film and as Quicksilver’s abilities consist of super-human speed in order to capture this, very exciting camera techniques must be used! Have a look at the picture below!
What we know of this exciting new film is still limited. However, the general idea is that the X-Men send back their very angry yet noble friend Wolverine in time in order to change a historical event that would globally impact both man and mutant kind.
Singer has kindly let slip a couple of important truths surrounding X -Men: Days Of Futures Past too;
– The film will be set in 1973, however the future sections of the film will be ten years after X3: The Last Stand.
–Professor X is still alive after he managed to transfer his conscious mind before he died! Cyclops does in fact still remain dead.
– William Stryker will be in the film played by the awesome Josh Helman!
– Bryan Singer has revealed that he has plans for another Marvel movie but he won’t go into details about it other than name it as a Marvel Universe ‘Mash Up’!
The cast includes, Jennifer Lawrence, Hugh Jackman, Anna Paquin, Nicholas Hoult, Ellen Page, Halle Berry, Sir Ian McKellen and of course Patrick Stewart!
X-Men: Days Of Futures Past will be showing in cinemas on July 17 2014!
