Back in December, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey was the first movie to be released that was shot at 48 frames per second (FPS), which is double the industry standard of 24 FPS. Today, we have word that director Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days of Future Past was also shot in the high frame rate and will be released in 48 FPS. Here's what a source identified as "Asta the Wonder Dog" had to say.
X:DoFP was shot in HFR and will be released in 48fps. The filmmakers played coy because of the negative reaction to the technology when The Hobbit film was released, but love the results and will be standing behind a theatrical release in high frame rate."
This source was the second to confirm the information to Ain't It Cool News, although the studio has not released an official statement yet.
We reported in August that the filmmaker is shooting scenes with Evan Peters' Quicksilver at 3600 frames per second, to illustrate the character's gift of superhuman speed. Bryan Singer announced last year that he is shooting the sequel in native 3D.
