The Japenese Do Everything Better, Including Their X-Men First Class Trailer

I love the music they’re using in this new Japanese/International trailer for Matthew Vaughn’s “X-Men: First Class”. Combine that with James McAvoy’s peaceful, soothing dialogue and Michael Fassbender just going around town kicking ass and taking names, and you got yourself a winner of a trailer here, folks.

“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 Lensherr 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 stop 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.

Starring Michael Fassbender, January Jones, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult, Kevin Bacon, Jason Flemyng, Rose Byrne, Jennifer Lawrence, Lucas Till, Zoë Kravitz, Oliver Platt, Morgan Lily, Edi Gathegi, Caleb Landry Jones and directed by Matthew Vaughn.

Magneto gets his revenge on June 3, 2011.
