New X-Men: First Class Trailer Arrives
The mutant prequel gets another teaser

20 April 2011  |  Written by Ali Plumb

After yesterday’s badly Photoshopped poster incident, it’s a great pleasure to bring to you another international trailer for Matthew Vaughn’s take on the much-loved comic book franchise, X-Men: First Class.

Early on, much of it is stuff we’ve seen before – establishing that yes, yes indeed, James McAvoy’s Professor X was bezzie mates with Michael Fassbender’s Erik Lehnsherr / Magneto – but then halfway through things kick up a gear.

The X-Men universe is slightly different in that there are so many characters and so many stories to tell. I just hope they focus on story and character and not the action spectacle because there's so much potential with Magneto's origin and backstory, a ma More

RE: Ting inducing soundtrack
I just can't get excited about this. All the stuff from the trailers makes it look like X-Men 3 - especially the action scenes - there's nothing new or exciting on show there. The characters and the story have so much potential in these beginning stages so I've still got a little bit of hope. Especially with Fassbender. More
