Bryan Singer’s New ‘X-Men: Days Of Future Past’ Production Image Reveals An Approach To Shooting Quicksilver
In a long line of news, behind-the-scenes images and teasers, director Bryan Singer has tweeted the above new production image from ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past.’ Singer captioned the image: “Brightest set I’ve ever filmed on. #3600framespersecond #Quicksilver #XMen #DaysOfFuturePast.” If the message is anything to go by, a section of Evan Peters’ role as the fast-moving son of Magneto, Quicksilver, will be captured in extreme slow motion. 3600 frames per second is 150 times slower than standard film and requires significantly more lighting to expose each frame. The seventh installment in the ‘X-Men’ film series commenced filming in March in Montreal, Canada. It will be the first film in the ‘X-Men’ film series to be filmed in 3D.
Earlier this year Bryan Singer announced that ‘Game of Thrones’ star Peter Dinklage joined the cast of ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past.’ Further reports bring word that the Emmy and Golden Globe Award winning actor will play the main antagonist in the film, Bolivar Trask. With Bryan Singer merging past and present ‘X-Men’ actors for ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past,’ the director has announced that Anna Paquin (Rogue), Ellen Page (Kitty Pryde), Halle Berry (Storm), Daniel Cudmore (Colossus) and Shawn Ashmore (Iceman) will be joining the film – which is ostensibly a sequel to ‘X-Men: First Class,’ but will prominently feature actors from the first ‘X-Men’ trilogy.
With the new trailer for ‘Thor: The Dark World’ set to arrive online tomorrow, Collider has posted a lengthy interview with Chris Hemsworth about the much anticipated Marvel sequel. On the topic of Thor’s complicated relationship with Loki in the film, Hemsworth said, “I mean I can’t say too much but I think in the comic books, you kind of roll your eyes sometimes at the amount of times that they’re back to being best friends so we wanted to keep in mind that he did just try to kill you for the seventh time, and Earth and millions of people and what have you…. I think there’s something we both.. a common need or something, which therefore, that would… you know the scene in Avengers where Thor says, “Careful how you speak. This may be crazy but that’s my brother” kind of sums up, I mean, yeah he’s a screw-up but “He is my brother” and I don’t think they’re going to go back to being best friends but there’s still, I think Thor’s at a loss about how they got to this point, you know? Because I think so far it came out of nowhere, and I think then in this film, you can certainly acknowledge with a maturity that okay, he should have been more aware of Loki over the years and where he is positioned in all of this and why maybe that led him down a certain path, so I think there’s maybe an empathetic view of Loki that maybe nobody else can have ‘cause they’re not bound by blood, you know?”
