Not long to go now until we finally get to see what Matthew Vaughn has done with the X-Men franchise in X-Men: First Class. I am extremely excited for it and this trailer has only adds to it. We finally get to look at something approaching a narrative and for a film that has had a supposedly troubled and rushed production it looks marvellous. There is some great interplay between actors Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy, and the cast around them, particularly Jennifer Lawrence, looks to be doing terrific work.
Make sure you catch X-Men: First Class when it gets released on June 3rd. Watch the trailer and read the synopsis below.
X-MEN: FIRST CLASS charts the epic beginning of the X-Men saga, and reveals a secret history of famous global events. Before mutants had revealed themselves to the world, and before Charles Xavier and Erik Lehnsherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Not archenemies, they were instead at first the closest of friends, working together with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to prevent nuclear Armageddon. In the process, a grave rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto’s Brotherhood and Professor X’s X-Men.
