In just a couple weeks, you'll be able to bring home X-Men: Days of Future Past on Blu-Ray and DVD, and while you'll be able to check out a slew of featurettes going behind the scenes of this past summer's time traveling blockbuster, you won't find this little gem on there. A visual effects breakdown from Digital Domain (via io9) has surfaced online, showing off the impressive work done in post-production. Though I wish there was explanation about what we see and how it's done, there are some cool tidbits, like seeing how each scale on Mystique's body moves when she transforms, or how various composite shots of Jennifer Lawrence fighting and changing into someone else visually come together. It's all very cool to see. Watch!
Here's Digital Domain's visual effects reel for X-Men: Days of Future Past (via io9):
X-Men: Days of Future Past is directed by Bryan Singer and written by Matthew Vaughn and Simon Kinberg. The sequel features cast members from the original X-Men franchise like Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Halle Berry, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore and Daniel Cudmore along with X-Men: First Class cast members like James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, and Michael Fassbender. The present day X-Men are in danger from a mistake in the past, and Wolverine is sent back in time to fix it in order to avoid a dark, terrifying future timeline. 20th Century Fox released Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days of Future Past this past summer and it arrives on Blu-Ray and DVD on October 14th. Cool?
this is utterly amazing. Everything was so organic in the film, some of the best vfx of this past summer.

I thought he really did lift the stadium, never knew it was CG. Pretty impressive, bet they kept saying 'we can fix it in post' all the time on set.

We as civilians, will never know how much damn work goes into making these films feel like reality. Insane.
