Not so fast...
UPDATE: According to IGN, an unnamed spokesman from 20th Century Fox has denied the claim that X-Men: Days of Future Past was filmed and released in 48fps.
Word is that shooting in 48fps was explored, but the filmmakers ultimately ruled against it.
ORIGINAL: Ain't It Cool News reports that Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days of Future Past will be released in 48FPS format. A source (one of two) said the following...
"X:DoFP 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."
The last film released in the format was The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, which drew criticism for looking for more like a stage production than a film.
It has previously been reported that Quicksilver's super speed motions will be shot in 3600 fps, to achieve a slow motion effect.
