New X-Men First Class Trailer, Cowboys and Aliens TV Spot

6 Comments

Two fresh TV spots today, one for Jon Favreau’s “Cowboys and Aliens”, which is only two months away, but you wouldn’t know it from the lack of interest and/or buzz surrounding it. But hey, it’s still got two months to go, so maybe by the time the studio cranks up the hype machine, it’ll have almost as much excitement surrounding it as Matthew Vaughn’s “X-Men: First Class”, the excitement for which is, let’s face it, nearly hitting critical mass as we speak, and it’s still got one more week to go.

1873. Arizona Territory. A stranger (Craig) with no memory of his past stumbles into the hard desert town of Absolution. The only hint to his history is a mysterious shackle that encircles one wrist. What he discovers is that the people of Absolution don’t welcome strangers, and nobody makes a move on its streets unless ordered to do so by the iron-fisted Colonel Dolarhyde (Ford). It’s a town that lives in fear. But Absolution is about to experience fear it can scarcely comprehend as the desolate city is attacked by marauders from the sky. Screaming down with breathtaking velocity and blinding lights to abduct the helpless one by one, these monsters challenge everything the residents have ever known. Now, the stranger they rejected is their only hope for salvation. As this gunslinger slowly starts to remember who he is and where he’s been, he realizes he holds a secret that could give the town a fighting chance against the alien force. With the help of the elusive traveler Ella (Olivia Wilde), he pulls together a posse comprised of former opponents—townsfolk, Dolarhyde and his boys, outlaws and Apache warriors—all in danger of annihilation. United against a common enemy, they will prepare for an epic showdown for survival.


Speaking of which, the other spot is another 90-second sneak peek trailer for “First Class”.

“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.

    wait what they called her angel, am I the only one who saw that, isn’t she called like pixie or something, angel is a dude

      Nope. Her name, Angel Salvadore, was her “code name.” She never took a codename and just went by Angel. Pixie is a whole different character. Warren Worthington III, the original Angel is called Archangel even after he got his feathered wings back, and in the comics actually switches between Angel and Archangel.
