One 'X-Men: Apocalypse' actor worked almost two months for 3 minutes of footage
When X-Men: Days of Future Past hit theaters, most people were pretty impressed with Quicksilver’s scene-stealing powers. Or more specifically, they were impressed with the camera work and intense editing needed to make audiences feel like Quicksilver was a dude living amongst people trapped in amber.
Director Bryan Singer knew he’d have to step it up a notch for X-Men: Apocalypse. Luckily, actor Evan Peters was game. The results? Peters ended up working longer than any other actor on the film. One 3 minute sequence alone took a month and a half, according to Singer.
As the man says, you can have it fast or you can have it cute. You can’t have both.
You can have fast or cute. Thank you @20thcenturyfox marketing #marcweinstock #davesingh #elyorias and the team for getting us on #superbowl50 #nfl #fox#football #XMen #xmenapocalypse FYI this scene with #evanpeters as #quicksilver took one and a half months for a less than 3 minute sequence resulting in Evan working longer than any other actor on the film. Thanks Evan and #ryanmurphy @ahsfx for accommodating!
X-Men: Apocalypse arrives in theaters on May 27, 2016.
