The boys and girls of Matthew Vaughn’s “X-Men: First Class” are busy shooting the day and night away over at Oxford Universe, which is the setting for Professor X (James McAvoy) and Magneto’s (Michael Fassbender) friendship before everything went to hell in a handbasket. Also along for the ride were Rose Byrne (playing Moira McTaggert) and Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique in human form), though I’m not entirely sure what Mystique and Professor X are doing so chummy and hanging out arm-in-arms. They sure didn’t look THAT chummy in the “X-Men” movies…
“First Class” tracks the origins of a young Professor X and Magneto, and stars 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 is directed by Matthew Vaughn.
The class begins June 3, 2011.
