[UPDATE: 20th Century Fox released a statement concerning the report that 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' will be shot in 48 FPS. Click ahead to read the original report.]
Back in December of last year, 'The Hobbit' became the first movie to be released in 48 FPS, the high-frame rate format that shoots at double the rate of traditional movies. It was supposed to be a groundbreaking step forward; an evolutionary leap for filmmaking. But, most people hated it. After a presentation at last year's CinemaCon, critics were underwhelmed saying it had the look of watching a soap opera on a badly calibrated TV at Best Buy. Probably not what Peter Jackson was hoping for.
But, 48 FPS is not going away anytime soon and today we have a report that confirms 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' was shot, and will be released, in the controversial 48FPS format next summer.
