Two X-Men: First Class International Posters are Silvery and Such

8 Comments

Oooh boy. I honestly have no idea who Fox is hiring what is no doubt very good money to do their “X-Men: First Class” posters, but ooooooooooooh boy, they’re bad. Here’s the latest, which looks appropriately shiny and questionably photoshopped. (Why does James McAvoy’s Young Professor X look like he’s about to rape me in a dark alley? And what’s up with his costume?) Honestly, this and the previous “photoshop their heads into the silhouettes” posters makes me wonder which Fox studio suit is giving all the work to his cousins, or sisters, or brothers, or crack dealer.

Give them this, though: the posters may suck, but the movie sure looks good.

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.

UPDATED: Another International poster for the movie, apparently featuring the same photoshoppy artwork. This one actually looks a tad better, though James McAvoy still looks like he wants to have his way with me in a dark alley.

    The posters I don’t think are THAT bad. Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique I have a problem with. Are we really supposed to believe that the pudgy chick from Winter’s Bone is the smokin’ hot Mystique from the original three films, played by the smokin’ hot Rebecca Romijn?!?! And why does Beast look like a blue Wolfman?

      Yeah cause you know Juggy, no hot adult was ever an awkward teen. LOL And they’re basing Beast’s look on his current more feline look. Maybe in a sequel, they’ll have it so he mutates further and is more ape Beast like in X3.

        Your right, I just think that they could have gotten someone who looked more like Rebecca Romijn… before or after she got Stamos’d! Lol!

      Mystique was never hot she was a blue skinned wranga, having blue skin is not a sexy thing, it is an ugly thing but this mystique is even uglier

    I think James McAvoy raping you in a dark alley is EXACTLY what you hope for xD

    Can’t understand what the fuss is about, the posters aren’t THAT bad. I seem to agree with Dedpool’s comment on the resemblance the poster has similarly to that of X2, while one of the earlier posters (the mutants’ faces inside of the huge, round X-logo) resembles that of X-Men 1. X3; now THAT is a different story!
