In January, Kevin Bacon described the various set designs for the upcoming X-Men prequel, X-Men: First Class with Moviefone. Bacon plays wealthy villain Sebastian Shaw, who heads a secret mutant society called the Hellfire Club.
I've got some pretty nice pads and I'm kind of slick in that way. The set design is fantastic. I've only seen the sets that I've been on and they are really interesting and very '60s modern and super cool, and beautiful. I have one set that's kind of like an inner sanctum and then I also have a submarine; the inside of the sub has elements of my other set. I have my own set of style and wanted to translate it over to my board room and stuff.
The latest First Class image shows one of those sets, an icy blue hall of mirrors, one that contains Bacon and First Class co-star January Jones as mutant telepath Emma Frost. Bacon referenced the set in his Movieline interview by saying, "we do have a really, really super cool scene in a hall of mirrors and that's going to be really spectacular." The picture seems to be before anything "spectacular" happens, but it's exciting to think of what danger could occur, isn't it? the x-men face a new danger >> Posted 03.02.11 by Ryan
