Earlier on Monday morning, Ain’t It Cool News reported that the new X-Men: Days of Future Past would be shot in 48fps, the same format used by Peter Jackson and The Hobbit back in 2012. But not even 12 hours after the rumor surfaced, 20th Century Fox is killing it by saying the film will not be shot in 48fps.
A spokesman for 20th Century Fox has denied an Internet report claiming Bryan Singer’s “X-Men: Days of Future Past” will be released in 48ps. … Fox isn’t sure where the rumor came from but insists the story is completely false.
That’s a nice way of saying Fox thinks Ain’t It Cool News just made the rumor up over the weekend and is lying. AIC noted in their report that they couldn’t confirm that the film was going to be shot in 48fps but two sources told them that it was going to be and Bryan Singer’s camp was holding back the news out of fear that negative backlash could hurt the film.
We will have to wait and see if the film ends up seeing a 48fps release but that time won’t be until closer to the May 2014 release date. Until then, we can safely assume that until Fox says otherwise, X-Men: Days of Future Past will be released in a regular, non-motion sickness inducing format.
