‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ Will Be Shot in 3D

20th Century Fox

Bryan Singer is using some of the tricks he learned while filming ‘Jack the Giant Slayer‘ for ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’… and by tricks we mean “3D stuff.” While most 3D movies are post-converted (see: all the Marvel movies), Singer plans to actually shoot ‘X-Men’ in 3D.

Cinema Blend had the chance to sit down with Bryan Singer to discuss his return to the world of superheroes with ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past.’ Singer previously helmed ‘X-Men’ and ‘X2,’ and served as executive producer on ‘X-Men: First Class.’ When that film was in production, he was pretty open about the things fans could expect, but this time around he’s tight-lipped. Singer dropped a few hints, though about how he’s approaching the film’s 3D:

“I’ll probably use some of the motion-capture technology for certain things [in Days of Future Past]. And of course the 3D technology. I’ll be shooting native stereo on X-Men.”

And if you know your 3D, you know that shooting in 3D is always going to be better than post-converting. Now what about other secrets?

There’s things that we’re going to do in this movie that haven’t been done in X-Men films before. Stuff involving [time travel], and stuff involving certain technology, and certain science fiction aspects that haven’t been used before in an X-Men film. We’d like to keep some of that a surprise.

He’s referring, of course, to the ‘Days of Future Past’ story line, in which Kitty Pryde travels back in time to stop events that will lead to a horrific future. Singer goes on to talk about how the film will deal with destiny, the choices we make, and how those choices affect our future — obviously.
