X-Men: First Class DVD/Blu-ray Extra: Watch Jennifer Lawrence Turn Blue
Posted 09.01.11 by BrentJS
The upcoming X-Men: First Class DVD and Blu-ray release will include more than two hours of never-before-seen extras. To help promote that release, we have the first sneak peek at one of those extras. The "Children of the Atom" featurette, which chronicles the development of X-Men: First Class from pre- to post-production, focuses on the makeup and prosthetic techniques used to turn a naked Jennifer Lawrence into the blue-scaled mutant shapeshifter known as Mystique.
Lawrence's Mystique transformation apparently took considerable trial-and-error to perfect because the artists who turned Rebecca Romijn into Mystique in the original X-Men movies were not on hand for X-Men: First Class. Then once perfected, it took a team of artists seven hours to complete the transformation, during which time Lawrence had to remain on her feet or perched atop a bicycle seat.
X-Men: First Class includes James McAvoy as Prof. X, Michael Fassbender as Magneto, Nicholas Hoult as Beast, Lucas Till as Havok, Kevin Bacon as Sebastian Shaw, January Jones as Emma Frost, Caleb Landry Jones as Banshee, Oliver Platt as The Man in Black, Edi Gathegi as Darwin, Jason Flemying as Azazel, and Rose Byrne as Moira MacTaggert. The movie was written by Jane Goldman (from a story by Bryan Singer) and directed by Matthew Vaughn, the same writing-directing team behind last year's teen superhero movie, Kick-Ass.
