    Seems work on the VFX is in the early stages:

    http://www.bleedingcool.com/2012/12/05/x-men-days-of-future-past-fx-people-shop-at-gosh-comics-too/

    It'll be a while before we see any VFX work so we can use this thread to discuss the special effects, how powers should look/be improved upon, the sentinels, and the aesthetics of the apocalyptic future.

    I think that shop likes some publicity, lol.

    I mean, if the movie starts on April, Im sure VFX crew is already working on something as complex and expensive like the sentinels designs, movements and all of that.

    This stuff cant start on Feb, you know? hehe

    It better had be! :jedi

    That was one thing that did impress me about Avengers. The amount of greenscreen that was undetectable (only one bit stood out as fake-looking, when Hawkeye fires the arrow as he falls off the building). And the Hulk was perfect. It just shows what is possible.

    Well The Avengers definitely had a massive budget and it was from Disney, Disney always gives their action blockbusters a big budget. I wonder if the budget for DOFP is going to be more than $200 million.

    saw the Start Trek teaser today

    was impressed with the style of the movie and how much things have changed in the latest years.

    You can notice that movie studios are stepping their games, and the budgets are better.

    The trailer had some Prometheus and Avengers similarities, which I liked. And it made me think about DOFP too, specially in certain scenes, and with some actors.

    If DOFP has this level of shots, action, scale..... it will be ****ing amazing! lol

    If Singer isn't careful, most of the budget will go on returning actors! :wow:

    Good visual effects shouldn't be a surprise anymore. We are already in 2012, and technology has definitely improved through time. But I do hope Days of Future Past will have a bigger scale compare to the first six X-Men movies.

    just to see at least two sentinels on the movie will be bigger than anything Ive seen in the previous movies, at least to me.

    Specially if Singer and his crew give us the type of LEVEL/shots shown on movies like Transformers or Avengers.

    Early reports say this film had a 175 Million budget.It may go up.

    As a die hard long time star Trek film the teaser looks more like a Star Wars/Transformers/Dark Knight hybrid than a Star Trek film.That has always been my concern for J.J. Abrams
    on Star Trek.Hopefully the writers did their best to bring some of Star Trek to film.

    Getting X-Men VS Sentinle action will be worth the price of admission alone for DOFP.

    I just hope the box-office performance of this movie will be really good. If FOX gave this movie a $200 million budget and it only gets $150 million at domestic box-office and less than $400 million at worldwide box-office, I think FOX would be really disappointed by that and they wouldn't make a new X-Men movie for a while.

    with both casts returning and appearing in a bigger marketing plan, Im sure this will have pretty solid boxoffice.

    I know some fans have really low expectations, but I really see THIS sequel doing more than 500$ millions worldwide. (to say the least)

    Maybe its time to convert this movie to 3D. I know 3D sucks but outside of U.S.A, 3D helps the movie to earn more money, it really inflates the worldwide box-office numbers.

    Is me being conservative here) and 250 Million overseas(First Class did 206 Million
    overseas)

    Hmmm I still don't think this movie will easily hit the 200 million mark at the domestic box-office especially if its really going to face the final part of The Hobbit trilogy at the opening weekend. I already said this before, but I really hope FOX moves the release date.

    I think so. It's no use studios resisting the trends; they have to stay current.

    I mean, look at The Hobbit - it is being screened in two different frame rates as well as IMAX and 3D. And it's a guaranteed hit without all those other formats.

    People will more easily fork out the cash for a big evening out at their nearest cinema if there is some kind of 'event' movie on, something special. For those that just want the standard 'no-frills' movie, that is still available too.

    If a movie is a big spectacle, then moviegoers are more likely to see it at a giant screen showing digital films (or IMAX, provided it was done in IMAX). I know people who saw Skyfall once at their nearest cinema and then went back to see it at an IMAX cinema, and also people who saw Avengers on a normal screen and then went to see it on a massive screen just to get the maximum spectacle.

    Fox can no longer hold back on these blockbuster films.

    This may be the first 3-d X-Men film.

    It still pises me off that Fox announces an release date for an X-men film to give them time so It won't be rush job and warner brothers after expanding hobbit from 2 films to 3
    Instead of typical December release schedules It for same weekend Fox already gave to X-Men.

    If Fox moves release It should be one or 2 weeks.Moving to june would be bad.

    And before people go thinking Guardians of the galaxy Is a big threat to X-men remember the Incredible Hulk,Thor,and cap didn't make Iron Man numbers.And GOTG Is even more less known to GA than X-Men was back In 2000.

    They should also convert First Class (and all the previous X-Men films for that matter) to 3D and offer double-bill screenings. And they might be able to tweak a few things from First Class at the same time - get Fassbender to re-record the final lines where he sounds too Irish, add some magnetic pulsing sounds to the scene where the missiles get stopped mid-air. I know they won't do any of that but, still, it's my dream! :woot:

    Right now, Guardians of the Galaxy won't be a threat to DOFP. Maybe if they will cast some big actors, then it would be very successful but right now there's nothing to worry about regarding the competition against Guardians of the Galaxy. I think FOX should move DOFP to July 4, 2014, Independence Day.

    They just can't! If their movie Life of Pi was released in 3D, why not Days of Future Past too! There should be an IMAX release too!

    Anyway, The Wolverine will be the first 3D release. It's being converted. But I would love DoFP to be FILMED in 3D!

    I actually wouldn't mind a Holiday release for DOFP, especially with Peter Jackson's money-grab aka The Hobbit Part 3 unceremoniously stole X-men's perfect release date. I'm kinda snickering from The Hobbit and its decision to shoot at a higher frame getting bad reviews from critics :hehe:
