"Breathtaking drone footage of snow-capped mountains is getting an Edmonton-area company blockbuster exposure alongside some powerful mutants in X-Men Apocalypse.
Footage created by Smart Drones is featured in the ninth installment in the Marvel Comics X-Men film series, which stars Jennifer Lawrence and Michael Fassbender.
"In the movie, there is scene where there is a helicopter going to a secret facility, flying into a dam, and we're the ones who actually shot all the aerial footage for that," said Eric Wilson, chief pilot with Smart Drones of St. Albert.
"They were trying to capture a remote, winter, desolate climate and the Canadian landscape happened to work perfect for that."
