'X-Men: Apocalypse' New Quicksilver Scene "Most Complex" Action Sequence Ever
By Matt O'Bryant
What's up guys and gals,
Director Bryan Singer recently spoke with Empire about his upcoming film X-Men: Apocalypse. The director in great detail breaks down the entire new trailer that was released Friday morning and also gives insight into the making of the film. One of the coolest things that he talked about however, was the new Quicksilver scene to be featured in the film. The director explains that it will go down as one of the most complicated and detailed action scenes of all time.
Empire: The standout sequence of Days Of Future Past was the Pentagon kitchen scene, when Quicksilver – the fastest man alive – saved the day at supersonic speed to the soothing sounds of Jim Croce’s Time In A Bottle. This is a quick glimpse of the biggest Quicksilver sequence in Apocalypse, one that ups the stakes considerably.
Singer: “There’s one sequence that took one and a half months to shoot for three minutes of film,” says Singer. “It involves the most complex camera moves, very sophisticated explosive algorithms, 3D Phantom cameras travelling at 50mph while shooting at 3,100 frames per second. Evan worked more days on this movie than any other actor because of this one sequence.”
Sounds pretty cool right? As a huge fan of the first Quicksilver scene, I can't wait to see what they come up with for this one! Sound off in the comments below, what are you most looking forward to in the new film. Are u pumped for the new Quicksilver scene?
