First X-Men: First Class Trailer Sets the Stage
Posted 02.10.11 by Ryan
Finally, the first trailer for X-Men: First Class has arrived. Those expecting an action-packed trailer may be a touch disappointed, as the trailer is more interested in introducing the story of the upcoming prequel which follows younger versions of Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and Professor X (James McAvoy) during the 1960s.
There's plenty of eyecandy, however, as the trailer will send the fanboy community drooling for more as it reveals the other mutants in the movie, including January Jones as Emma Frost (in the interrogation room depicted in the recently released photo and later in diamond form), Zoe Kravitz as Angel Salvadore (and her wings), Nicholas Hoult as Beast (with and without fur), Lucas Till as Havok (blasting away), Edi Gathegi as Darwin, Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique (changing to her natural blue form), Kevin Bacon as Sebastian Shaw, Jason Flemying as Azazel, as well as non-mutants Rose Byrne as Moira MacTaggert, and a blink-and-miss shot of Oliver Platt as the Man in Black.
X-Men: First Class opens June 3 and co-stars Caleb Landry Jones (as Banshee) and Ray Wise as the Secretary of State, both of whom were omitted from the trailer this time around. Matthew Vaughn directed the movie from a script by Jane Goldman, who also wrote Vaughn's Kick-Ass.
