New Images from X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Set Reveal a Waterborne Location Shoot & Mutant Artifacts [Updated with Bonus Michael Fassbender Image]

     August 16, 2013


Rather than settling for grainy, long-distance shots from amateur photographers taking unofficial photos of extras and off-camera actors, directors like Bryan Singer and Marc Webb have taken to social media to dispense their own brand of set photos.  Today’s helping comes from Singer on set of X-Men: Days of Future Past.  Two new images reveal the difficulties of shooting a scene on water, along with a collection of very familiar artifacts.

Hit the jump to check out the images.  The film stars James McAvoyMichael FassbenderHugh JackmanNicholas HoultJennifer Lawrence, Ian McKellan, Patrick StewartPeter Dinklage, Shawn Ashmore, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Omar Sy, and Halle Berry.  X-Men: Days of Future Past opens May 23, 2014.
