“X-Men: First Class” trailer makes Marvel mutant magic


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: For a film that’s due out in a little over a month, “X-Men: First Class” has been relatively quiet.

We’ve seen an initial trailer that actually used some footage from the first three “X-Men” films (as well as new footage shot by “First Class” helmer Matthew Vaughn). And there have been poster and images that have received mixed to favorable reviews.

But this … this is the trailer that we’ve been waiting for, the one that shows what I think Vaughn has created with Marvel’s mutant franchise. This full-length “X-Men” trailer convinces me that Fox has a potential hit on their hands … and might finally have a superhero thriller that can live up to Bryan Singer’s initial “X-Men” film.

Some of you might have seen a shorter version of this attached to “Water for Elephants” last weekend. The longer clip’s finally up on Yahoo Movies, and we’ve linked it here.

“X-Men: First Class” is an origin story. It stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Rose Byrne and Jennifer Lawrence, to name just a few.

It will be in theaters on June 3.

    X-Men: First Class will not apparently be the definitive depiction of the Hellfire Club as they do not seem to have included anyone apart from Sebastian Shaw and Emma Frost. As it stands it will only be them and a bunch of nameless henchmen in the film. They should have included Harry Leland, Donald Pierce, Tessa and Selene instead of several randomly chosen mutants whose names that they picked out of a hat.
