New X-Men: First Class Image

The photo you are looking at isn’t something from a fun house, it’s a new photo featuring January Jones and Kevin Bacon from X-Men: First Class. The image comes courtesy of Empire and shows Jones and Bacon in the Hellfire Club. It makes me wonder how a room of mirrors with a blue light in the centre factors into the film. Either way, you have to be impressed with the way that Matthew Vaughn is pushing through with this film and will manage to finish editing it in time for its June 3rd release.

Here is the official plot synopsis for X-Men: First Class

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.

The film stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Rose Byrne, January Jones, Oliver Platt, and Kevin Bacon. Matthew Vaughn (“Kick-Ass”) directs, and the producers are Lauren Shuler Donner, Simon Kinberg and Bryan Singer. Singer, who helmed the acclaimed blockbusters “X-Men” and “X2,” wrote the story for X-MEN: FIRST CLASS.
