There’s some bad news on the horizon for X-Men fans if the latest rumor happens to be proven true. It looks like Peter Jackson isn’t the only filmmaker who is dipping his hands into the 48 frames per second pool as rumors float around that Bryan Singer may be dealing with that for X-Men: Days of Future Past.
There aren’t too many people who were fans of 48 frames per second, especially after integrating it with 3D like Peter Jackson did with The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. It came off as a major headache more than anything else. But to suddenly add it to the latest X-Men movie sounds a bit bonkers. Either way, the latest rumor is that they’ll be doing that for the new X-Men movie and that does not make me happy at all. Continue reading on to see why it took them a little while for the filmmaker to cozy up to 48 frames per second (via AICN):
X-Men: Days of Future Past was shot in HFR and will be released in 48fps. The filmmakers played coy because of the negative reaction to the technology when the Hobbit film was released, but love the results and will be standing behind a theatrical release in high frame rate.
Here is hoping that we’ll have a 24 frames per second release if this rumor is true, only because I refuse to watch it in 48 fps.
Do you want to see X-Men: Days of Future Past in 24 or 48 frames per second?
