Native 3D means they are shooting the film using 3D cameras? Then that sounds really good!

JP 02-13-2013 06:17 PM

Re: The X-Men: Days of Future Past FACTS Thread
 
Yes, no post conversion. 100% real 3D.

It's better when they film In 3d.Considering Bryan Singer went to James Cameron for advice
on how to best handle time travel aspect on screen I wouldn't be surprised If he advised Bryan to shoot in real 3d.Plus some will like It Bryan decided against going 48f like the
Hobbit that he was consdering.

Bryan shot Jack in 3D.

Re: The X-Men: Days of Future Past FACTS Thread
 
I wasn't sure If he shot It In 3d,or post converted It.It makes sense If he shot Jack In 3d
for him to shoot DOFP in 3d.If films are going to be released In 3d they should be shot In
3d.

48frames just look really cheap, the movie doesn't look smooth at all and I feel like it just takes away the art of film-making.

Is this a confirmed fact or based on that unconfirmed casting call?

Singer has confirmed the 70s setting. He also confirmed that Nixon will be President.

I wonder if that means the future X-Men (Wolverine, Iceman, Rogue, Kitty, etc.) will either have new non-leather costumes or won't be shown in costume at all. I'm guessing the former.
