Director Bryan Singer tries to outdo the Quicksilver speed scene from his last "X-Men" film with an entirely new action sequence in "Apocalypse."

And this new behind-the-scenes featurette offers some insight on what went into creating such an intricate production that required a state-of-the-art film camera called the "Phantom," which runs 3,000 frames per second and can stretch a blink-of-an-eye moment into 15 seconds, creating an illusion of frozen time.

"We used some of the most sophisticated filming technology in creating this very elaborate sequence," Singer says in the above clip, which shows Quicksilver (played by Evan Peters ) extracting his fellow Xavier's students to safety just when the X-Mansion is being destroyed by some kind of explosives.

Currently playing in theaters, "X-Men Apocalypse" is already on pace to take the top spot at the box office this Memorial Day weekend.

Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshipped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel's X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) with the help of Professor X (James McAvoy) must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction.
