FXGuide – X-Men:Apocalyse, how?


X-Men: Apocalypse picks up ten years after the events of X-Men: Days of Future Past, with Professor X (James McAvoy), Magneto (Michael Fassbender), and Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) all on very separate paths, until¬†Apocalypse is awakened to find that he does not really enjoy the 1980s. Visual effects were covered by a range of companies and we spoke to three of them. Digital Domain, who handled the opening and who helped define the new Magneto ‘metals of the earth’ look starting at¬†Auschwitz-Birkenau in Poland, Rising Sun Pictures, who nearly stole the show in the last X-Men film, returning once again to slow down time with Quicksilver and Cinesite, one of many companies who also contributed to this summer blockbuster.*
