‘X-Men: Apocalypse’, the latest in the hugely successful comic-book franchise, sees director Bryan Singer return to the helm having directed three previous movies in the series. Also returning are series regulars Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), James McAvoy (Professor Charles Xavier) and Nicholas Hoult (Beast), and newcomers to the franchise such as Oscar Isaac (Apocalypse) and Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner (Jean Grey).
About half of ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ was shot natively in 3D and the rest of the film was stereo converted, with a brief to match the look of the native footage. Scott Willman oversaw the stereo conversion for Twentieth Century Fox, briefing PFW stereographers James Rees and Ben Breckenridge on his requirements for the stereo conversion.
Prime Focus World delivered the stereo conversion of 384 shots for ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’, including the stand-out slo-mo sequence in which Quicksilver (Evan Peters) rescues students and teachers from a huge explosion that rips apart Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters.
