Back in December, we learned that X-Men: Days of Future Past would (sadly) be in 3D. It’s not too surprising since 3D is currently paying huge dividends from international box office. It’s still a boost in the U.S. but the novelty has cooled as audiences have discovered that most movies aren’t exactly Avatar when it comes to 3D. Hopefully, international audiences will make this discovery soon, and we’ll be done with this broken technology that rarely adds anything and is undermined by cheap chain theaters who don’t want to spring for bulbs that would show 3D at its proper brightness.
Thankfully, Bryan Singer is at least shooting X-Men: Days of Future Past in 3D rather than post-converting it. He also tweeted that he’ll be using Simul-Cam. For those who don’t know, Simul-Cam allows the director to see a rough digital version of the motion-capture figures. Could this be for the Sentinels? Hit the jump to see an image of Singer’s “friggin mission control”. X-Men: Days of Future Past opens July 18, 2014.
