I absolutely love this new theatrical trailer for Matthew Vaughn’s “X-Men: First Class”. It’s got the pitch-perfect balance of action, pathos, and that soundtrack is just killer without going overboard. Check it out and witness the birth of a badass Magneto as played by (Hey, that’s) Michael Fassbender.
“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.
Also starring 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.
The fit hits the shan June 3, 2011.
