Holy Crow!

We knew they worked hard on these superhero films, but this is an all new high!

In the X-Men: Apocalypse trailer that hit the internets just today, we saw what looks like it will be one of the more memorable sequences in the film — Quicksilver (Evan Peters) running down a hallway, looking like he could be scared.

We also knew that they worked on that one sequence for about six weeks, as reported a couple weeks ago.

That one three minute sequence equaled the same production time of a small independent film! Three minutes!

Well, now out in Empire Magazine today, we learn just how much more was involved in that sequence. As Bryan Singer told Empire,

“There’s one sequence that took one and a half months to shoot for three minutes of film. It involves the most complex camera moves, very sophisticated explosive algorithms, 3D Phantom cameras traveling 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.”


We’d probably all pay Los Angeles movie prices just to go watch that three-minute sequence!

Thanks to Comicbook.com for pointing this out!

The whole article is great and offers Bryan Singer going beat by beat through the trailer.
