When Fox and Matthew Vaughn started releasing clips from their upcoming “X-Men: First Class”, I assume they would be releasing NEW stuff, not just the same scene over and over. At last count, this scene between Hank McCoy aka Beast and Mystique has been recycled three times (not counting the trailers and TV spots), and was featured prominently in both the Mystique and the Beast character videos. Sheesh, guys, come on.
Anyways, here’s the second clip from Vaughn’s “First Class”, due out June 3rd.
“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.
The film 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, and Caleb Landry Jones.
