This is a thread I've been wanting to make for a while, in case it hasn't already been done. I'll start off with a couple of facts from my all-time favorite.

When he signed on to the project, Bryan Singer had a long discussion with James Cameron about how to make the idea of time travel feasible and workable within the film.


Quicksilver's Pentagon scene was filmed at 3200 frames per second using the high-speed Vision Research Phantom camera.

During filming of Days of Future Past, Bryan Singer injured his vocal cords and could only speak in falsetto.

Cameron is the one guy I'd love to talk to about shooting an action film.

Half the effects in most films are CGI and we don't notice because it's on the small scale.

But something as minuscule as a fag? Yeah, that's a bit odd. But I found it quite interesting.

"Fag" is British slang for "cigarette".
