Trailer Talk: ‘X-Men: First Class’


Finally, here’s a look at “X-Men: First Class.”

From what is shown, Michael Fassbender (pictured at right) appears to be an excellent Magneto. As a fan of previous work, I had a feeling he would be. James McAvoy, whom I’ve grown fond of since “The Last King of Scotland” isn’t exactly wowing me with his portrayal of Xavier. However, as a whole, “X-Men: First Class” is looking pretty impressive and better than I thought it would.

Focusing on the character introductions, we see Emma Frost (January Jones) in what appears to be an interrogation room. Angel (Zoe Kravitz) flutters her wings. Hank McCoy/Beast (Nicolas Hoult) sits with a syringe in hand. Havoc (Lucas Till) and Darwin (Edi Gathegi are in the next few frames. Moira MacTaggert (Rose Byrne) and Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) close out the remaining “First Class” cast.

I have to say, 20th Century Fox included just enough action sequences to combat any negative buzz and pique my waning interest. I’ll definitely watch “X-Men: First Class” in a theater come June 3.

Sound off to the right with your opinion. What do you think of the trailer?

    Of all of the big superhero movies coming up (including those featuring Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, The Avengers, Captain America, Thor and Spider-Man), this one has interested me the least. And this trailer did nothing really to change that. This was the first trailer that I didn’t immediately want to watch again.

    I was really looking forward to this but am a bit concerned about some of the points that don’t add up …… I’m gonna watch it anyway so will withhold judgment till then. : -))
