Shot on EPIC DRAGON: X-Men Apocalypse

20th Century Fox released the final trailer for the upcoming superhero blockbuster, X-Men: Apocalypse. Directed by Bryan Singer and shot in 3D on RED EPIC DRAGON by cinematographer, and longtime Singer collaborator, Newman Thomas Sigel. The trailer features new scenes and epic battles, including a comic book inspired duel between Cyclops and Storm, while also teasing us with a glimspe of a very familiar hero:

This time around the X-Men are up against the immortal Apocalypse (played by an unrecognizable Oscar Isaac). Worshiped as a god since the dawn of civilization and awakening after thousands of years, Apocalypse recruits the disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and other mutants to create a new world order. Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence in usual badass mode) leads the team of good-guy mutant warriors to save a captured Professor X and stop their seemingly invincible nemesis from destroying mankind.

Shot on RED… FROM OUTER SPACE!

 

That’s right – the International Space Station (ISS) has released some very cool space-videos shot on the Red Epic Dragon. That’s a camera we have here at 3GR you guys!!

I’m pretty sure this means we can officially say that Astronauts choose Red? I wonder if they use a lot of velcro on their build up on the station. (that’s a NASA product development + camera assistant joke right there. I apologize…)

To watch the below videos in all their 4K glory, you’ll have to open them in a new window – and have a 4K+ display of course. Run to your nearest Apple Store if you don’t have one at home. Can’t get much better for an ultra high def example on their showroom floor.

 

Most elaborate Red build ever?

 

 

NASA has also made a number of downloadable “ultra high def” videos available under a Public Domain license on archive.org, so you can even use them in your own space movies. Thanks NASA!

 

 

As you might imagine, it takes a hot second to beam this stuff down from space. But it will soon be possible to determine when it will be in a certain location, for those interested in staging the most epic flash-mob event… on earth at least.
