Russia’s X-Men: First Class Trailer is Magneto-rific


Looks like the Russians are fascinated with Magneto. Or at least, whoever cut this trailer for Russian consumption, which focuses quite extensively on the past, present, and future of one Magneto as played by Michael Fassbender. You don’t really need to know Russia to know what’s going on. Magneto is one pissed off dude, and being the master of magnetism and all, you don’t want to be on his bad side. Lots of groovy new footage from Matthew Vaughn’s “X-Men: First Class” below. Thanks to reader Paul for the heads up.

“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.

    Still not convinced about hardly anything towards this one…why we needed it, who actually wanted it, 90% of the casting choices. The only thing I’m really enjoying about this production so far is Fassbender being bad-ass for that part!

    That was pretty cool looking. I particularly like the scenes with Banshee. But yeah Fassbender and MacAvoy will make this movie along with Kevin Bacon. The script however, much like X-men Origins, and Last Stand could break it.

      Those two shots of Banshee were bad ass!!! The sonic scream power was awsome looking and they even got his cape thingie! The rest of the footage was cool too. More Havok, more Magneto and more Beast. While there was no need to go this route it still looks like it may be cool.

    That’s the same song they play in The Incredible Hulk movie…
